Sleuth's Mystery Dinner Shows
I stayed in a recently renovated room overlooking the pool area. As requested, I received a quiet room on a high floor and it was actually very quiet at night. The bathroom was updated and clean, and the bed was comfortable. I appreciated the daily replenishment of bottled water, coffee, and tea. The employee who checked me in was very nice, and I was assisted with my luggage upon departure. There were some families staying in the hotel, but it was mostly conference attendees. Many at my conference had to stay at the Swan, but luckily it is just a short walk away. The hallways were a bit warm and smelled like mildew, but at least the rooms were clean. It's not a bad place to have a conference, but it is a little inconvenient that there aren't too many restaurants and bars to go to outside of the ones at the Dolphin and Swan.
Room was far from elevator. Room was hot. Beds weren't as comfortable.
Beautiful hotel! The character dining at Garden Grove restaurant was awesome, have your kids bring their autograph books with them. Staff was friendly and very accommodating to families/kids. We ate dinner at Il Mulino restaurant and despite being more upscale Italian, the waiter was very engaging with our kids and was happy to make them chocolate milk with dinner! The grotto pool was beautiful, large, and poolside food/beverage service was on the ball. Nothing really not to like, just some advice: Prices are expensive but hold value. This isn't a Super 8 but then again they treat you way better than a Super 8. Just remember EVERYTHING at Disney World is expensive. Also this: this hotel is on Disney property but is NOT a Disney hotel. You still get the same perks like early park entry and free shuttles to the parks, but what you don't get is free shuttle from/to the airport on the Disney Magical Express. A Disney rep will tell you to use Mears transportation saying it's cheaper than a taxi but don't. Our taxi, with tip, was cheaper than Mears' fare plus we didn't have to wait the half hour for the Mears shuttle. We were in a taxi in about 5 minutes at the airport.
Hotel was comfortable and clean Our room was next to the elevator so we didnt sleep well from the noise of the motor constantly.
The rooms were amazing, the staff was friendly,and the amenities were amazing!
Location This is not a Disney hotel yet they wanted to charge us to eat with Disney characters. This was $10 more for breakfast. Staff was rude when we asked about it.. we requested the manager get in touch with us but never did.
We were upgrade to a nemo room and that was a very nice surprise. The room was bigger which included a microwave, kitchenette sink and refrigerator. Indoor entry was a plus. The little mermaid rooms were really small and not very appealing. All the room were outdoor entry much little motels. Very bare/basic room.
It was nice. Lots of things for the kids. Good job. Arcade was a let down. Kids wanna win things. Expensive drinks...ridiculous. Cheap towels, hide a bed was hard. Room was dirty. Furniture and floors...totally not worth the money we paid. We're poor folks. Such a waste of money.
The resort is close to everything. We used the grills almost nightly. Lots of things for the kids to do. The maid didn't come once during our 5 night stay. When we got to our room the tub was leaking from the handle. The fan that drys the tub came on scaring my kids. We called the front desk and it was fixed quickly but I feel the maid should have caught it when she cleaned. I also didn't like how they try to get you to buy the timeshare.
It's on Disney Property, good for family to spend time together rather then having two separate hotel rooms. They waste your time trying to get you to buy a time share. They tell you to go to a different area to get parking pass and then keep you
nice view of disney from balcony
Staff nice bed comfortable TV Terrible
