We stayed 5 nights at the Disney Dolphin, chosen mainly as the hotel for the meeting my husband was attending. We were first placed on the 7th floor of the East side and upon exiting the elevator, immediately noted musty odor. Our room was damp and musty; the carpet felt yucky underfoot and when under the covers in bed, the... More

I can tell you right now that this property has a lot to offer great location, meeting rooms and food options. We stayed at this location for a conference and was not disappointed. Now let me tell you about a hidden GEM that me and my wife found at this hotel! Bianca a cocktail waitress who works at the Lobby... More

Despite the resort's over-the-top decorating sense, the rooms themselves seemed a little worn. It's mostly standard hotel grade wrapped in a fancy exterior. The outdoor areas are nice, especially the pools. Handy to the Boardwalk area.

The hotel itself is magnificent. I stayed at the Dolphin, but walked around both properties. The only thing preventing me from giving this a 5 star was the condition of the rooms. I travel to Orlando frequently- and for the same price as the Dolphin, I've stayed at the Hyatt Regency which has TVs in the bathroom, automatic lighting, and... More

We are FL and bought a 4 day Disney pass, which we split into 2 visits of 2 days each. We first stayed at a Disney property, Port Orleans, which was clean and neat, but had only bus transport available and which was noisy and bustling. On our return, on the advice of friends, we tried The Dolphin. What makes... More

Hotel on the lake connected to Epcot and Hollywood studios by complimentary boat. 20 floor hotel, numerous restaurants. Good ice cream/burger Fountain cafe. Rooms were nice, quick check-in, even got into our room early. $18/day parking fee,$26 for valet. Long walk to parking areas. Stay away from the buffeteria cafe, they charged us a15% service fee for grabbing our own... More

I am a Starwood gold member and yet when I got to hotel it took them 10 min to even realize this. The rooms look like they have had not been maintained since 1999. Stains on the floor and furniture , worn carpets, chips on the porcelain. The climate control system is terrible. You had to make the room temperature... More

We have stayed here many times through out the last couple decades and I am sad to report this place is not what it used to be… the carpets through out the hotel looked worn, especially in the hallways leading to the rooms, the beds were not as comfortable, the amenities were not replenished on a daily basis. It appears... More

For us this was one of the worst hotel stays ever. But let's start with the facts: As usual I have sent the hotel an email with room preferences a few days prior to our arrival. I basically asked for a quiet room (king, away from elevators, no connecting doors). The hotel offered us at checkin: two queens with connecting... More

Spent six nights with three teenagers and two adults, one cot, comfortable and clean. Staff very friendly. Grounds well maintained. Pools were great with activities and a lovely waterfall and slide. Easy walk to Boardwalk with water shuttle to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Convention area quite expansive. My daughter placed first in her comp. Great time would go back. Cheers!!!
