My wife and I where in Orlando to visit Disney World and decided to stay at the Sheraton Resort. We have never been here so we didn't know what to expect. Upon arrival we were greeted by the valet in a friendly professional manner. We went inside and spoke to the receptionist about our room. The hotels interior was bright... More

We traveled without the kids for the first time in a while. The hotel was recommended to us by a friend and we are so glad. We arrived too early and our room wasn't ready. Since we came in on a taxi, we were kind of stuck for a while. The Valet (Eddie) stored our bags and recommended we change... More

We stayed here last week for a total of four nights, traveling with our kids who are 8 and 10 years old. Overall we were pleased with our stay and with this hotel.

Very nice hotel. Pool area is great, rooms are very spacious especially th family suite. We actually got a better price on the family suite than just a double room which was nice when trading with children. They get their own tv and bunch beds. Hotel is located near many restaurants and it also offers transporting to the theme parks,... More

Nothing special about checking. Resort fee for parking, wifi, and 2 bottles of water is ridiculous. Gold members so it was waived thankfully. Arrived late and needed milk for baby. Person by phone not helpful at all. Bar attendant gave a plastic cup of milk for free to get through the night...AWESOME! outside of building shows its age. Decent room... More

Very comfortable beds and quiet rooms. We were frustrated by incorrect information given to us by the front desk. We had called to inquire about a shuttle to Hollywood Studios and they told us that the shuttles ran every 10 min. Wrong! We got downstairs at 9:30 to find the only shuttle to HS left at 9:25.

I’ve stayed at this place many times over the past 6 years. It was the Sheraton Safari up until this time. The renovation was definitely due.
