Good

Overall the stay was was mostly pleasant. However as a traveler for pleaaure rather than business hotel staff was not friendly or helpful. Dining and late snacks/beverages were not convenient due to the market/restuarant hours. With plenty of options in the area will more than likely stay elsewhere in the future.

Nice Orlando hotel

The hotel has several buildings scattered about the place, so it might be a trek to get to your car. The room was quite nice, with comfortable beds. Decent pool for a refreshing dive after a hot day at the parks.

family trip great stay

Hotel was perfect for a Disney vacation with kids. When we arrived our balcony door would not lock and they moved us to another room. During our stay, our lightbulb gave out and they quickly replaced it. It is nothing fancy or luxurious, but it was clean and comfortable and the staff was very pleasant and professional. For being out at the parks all day and needing a close, comfortable, and clean place to stay. This is a great option! If your vacation is to enjoy the hotel, etc., there are more luxurious places to stay. However, this was a vacation with kids and although the hotel had a spa, we never got around to using it. Hotel has all you need- spa, fitness, pool, mini mart downstairs open late for snacks and coffee, game room for older kids, etc. overall great hotel!

building work being carried out

The Hotel is currently being refurbished on , on one part of the building, and we couldn't use our balcony, or open our balcony window at all in our 10 day trip, water kept on splashing water jets from the workman currently repainting the outside and the balconies to the rooms, this was very unpleasant, and I was not told this would be the case when I booked the room, otherwise I would have booked another hotel

decent hotel convenient to Downtown Disney

The location was very convenient if you want to get to Downtown Disney! Just walk across the street! The regular shuttles to the parks were also great, but it would have been better for us to actually be on a Disney property. The room was just OK and maid service was inconsistent. We didn't always get more coffee cups, a bath mat, etc... The Tissue holder was moved to reveal a big moldy spot. The biggest disappointment was the hot tub, which was NOT hot. Overall, it worked out OK for us as adults traveling without children.

Family Trip

We have stayed here previously,with a better experience. The location is excellent, and the amenities (if you care about them) are good. The air conditioning did not work. We came back to the room around 10:00 at night and had to have a technician fix the air. The phone in the room didn't work so we had to go to the desk to report this. Around 20 minutes later, a tech came and fixed the air. Also, we didn't notice that our toiletries were not restocked until it was very late. So, we only had one tiny shampoo and conditioner for a family of four (one night drive through stop). The staff was friendly, but the overall experience was not that great this time. I would probably try this hotel again simply due to the excellent location, right adjacent to the Disney Marketplace. If not for the location, however, I probabaly would not stay here again.
