Great proximity to Downtown Disney and the Parks

My wife and I had a great experience and the people there were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Early checkin was not a problem. It has great proximity to downtown disney (within a short walk) and the parks (free shuttles provided every 30 min.)

Excellent value, great location.

I needed a room for a one-night stay for a work conference and I could not be happier with my decision. Staff was very friendly, the lobby was clean and well lit, beds were extremely comfortable (first time in months I have woken up with no back pain), and the elevators were plentiful and fast (got up to the 17th floor in a flash). I would definitely stay here again.

If you get takeout from Flippers pizza, double check to see if your side items have been included, and for the love of God stay very far away from the boneless wings.

Overnight Stay

The room was acceptable and clean and a few minutes walking distance from downtown disney. The shower continually went from scalding hot to ice cold without even touching the knob...boy that was annoying. The buffet breakfast offerings left a bit to be desired. I found a wire in my eggs that appeared to be from some type of griddle brush. The employees at the buffet kept quoting us different prices for the cost. The hotel receptionist said it was $10.99, the hostess said it was $11.99 and the waiter stated it was $12.99. We were charged the $12.99 and were precharged a 15% tip for a party of 2. I can understand why the precharged tip since i'm guessing many foreign travelers may not be familiar with American tipping customs but I personally usually give more than 15% unless it's already on the bill. it seemed like the room service breakfast would have been a better deal. The prices were better strangely enough.

It was a good place to stay.

Room was a little dated and could use some work, especially the bathroom. The room had a balcony which was nice to be outside on warm days and nights. Over-all, I would recommend it to friends and family. Restaurant wasnt all that. service was slow. food was just ok. Location was great. near Downtown Disney, shuttles were running all the time to the parks.
