Not the quietest room!

First three nights we had a screaming child in the room next to us, next three was the "loud" family. We have stayed at the Dolphin several times without any noise problems, not sure if the construction is different, but don't expect any private conversations! That being said, the location is ideal if you are Epcot junkies as we are. Walking distance to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Had to call for room service after a missed day and maid left behind dirty dishes, go figure. There are better deals, but location wins out for us!

Family Vacation

Great location! Good hotel but a little old could use an a face lift. One thing that the site does not readily mention, you have to look for it, is that this is NOT a Walt Disney World Resort. The resort is actually owned by Sheraton. You can NOT use the hotel room key to enter the Walt Disney World Parks and you can NOT use the hotel room key make charges at the park. You still get all the same perks extra hours entry. The family pool is a little far from the hotel. The Swan did not a cafeteria type restaurant like the Dolphin did, had to walk there for breakfast. Overall the location and price make it a good place to stay even with the small little inconveniences.

family vacation

This hotel was very nice. The only thing I was a little disappointed with was that the pools (which are awesome) are not right next to the hotel. You do have to walk some to get to them. The transportation to the Disney Theme Parks is efficient from this hotel. We loved that feature!

Don't bother bringing back left overs as there is no microwave in the room. Bring some cereal bars or your own muffins for breakfast on the go.

Disney at its best

This Hotel is a great location and has travel to Hollywood studios and epcot by boat for free, What sucks is you have to pay to park there. I mean come on... you are paying to stay there and you have to pay for your car to stay also? besides that annoying feature all is great there.

Not enough for what you pay

I have stayed at many local hotels and was suprised that this hotel was not more accomadating for people traveling. No microwave, no soda or water machines, the cafe closed at 11 am. This is a great hotel if you don't plan on staying in the room.

Great vacation at a nice location.

The Swan is a convenient place to stay on our vacation and seemed about average for what I expected. There is a variety of onsite restaurants but the food was Disney expensive and just OK. I would like to see the property try to keep the ducks from making a mess in the pools. Nonetheless, closeness to the Boardwalk, several parks and ease of Disney transportation made our stay in Florida wonderful.

Great king size bed and great places to eat

Me and my husband stayed there for three nights for our honeymoon. The concierge helped us in a great attitude always and also they have excellent restaurants like the sushi and the buffet. The room was very comfortable and the hotel smells very nice. We didnt like that they charge everyday the internet as a hotel policy even if you dont use it, they have transportation to all Disney parks, downtown Disney and the outlet mall for example which we loved!
