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.

Nice enough, but showing its age

Can't beat the location for Lake Buena Vista and Downtown Disney, with options for transport to the parks. But this high-rise hotel needs some updating and TLC to bring it up to the level of competing hotels on and off the Disney property.

Review

This hotel had a great location close to Downtown Disney and the rooms were clean and comfortable. One thing that was disappointing was that the hotel did not have a hot tub. The hotel either should have made it known that they did not have one or they should get one! Also, the staff at check in did not help us with our request of a Disney view room. They said they did not have any. However, our friends checked in just a little while later and they received a Disney view room, so I wish they would have been a little more willing to cooperate.
