Quality and Value

From its location across from Downtown Disney to the hotel amenities (free internet, in-room refrigerator and coffee maker) we enjoyed our stay. We arrived there after a week and a half of travel to various locations, and appreciated being able to relax in the hotel lounge near the fireplace and enjoy free appetizers and complimentary beverages. The following day, we were able to purchase our park tickets for EPCOT and hop on the park shuttle that came directly to the hotel.

Awesome stay at this hotel on a recent trip to Florida. We travel frequently and will certainly stay here again when we travel to the Orlando area. The hotel staff and accommodations were excellent.
