This is a very nice hotel; clean and tidy and friendly staff. We love that it was walking distance from Downtown Disney. The transportation service was great getting to Disney World. Overall great experience!

We stayed in the Islands section in a king suite, which was excellent. Room was spacious. Accommodations and bedding are upscale. Pools were great. The restaurant near the lake had terrific food at a decent price. Really a great hotel right next to Downtown Disney!

It's a large place. I was there for a work conference. My room was in the second building--a suite. It was fine. LONG trek in the hot sun to get to the conference center. Bed was fine. decor is a little faded but ok. Housekeeping was horrible: 1) I needed some clothes cleaning done. I called down and they said... More

Our experience here was one of the worst I've ever had anywhere. when we got to the hotel which was late to begin with after we had traveled three hours. We were taken to a room that had not been cleaned bed was slept in soap scum in the sink. So then we were moved to another room where it... More

We stayed at this hotel for the 3rd time and it didn't let us down. Great location to disney attractions. I made the reservation online and ended up calling reservations to downgrade the room from a suite to a regular room and ended up with an even better price! With all the events that were going on at this hotel... More

The thermostat in the rooms are there I guess for decoration. It said 65 but was definitely not 65, it would get hot in the room. There was no ice on any floor. They put a sign to go to the next floor and the entire hotel didn't have an operating ice machine,my husband called and told them and they... More

I spent a week at the resort starting on July 7, 2015. I traveled with my wife, daughter and grandson. The 1200 square feet and separate bed rooms and bath afforded privacy and peace. The balcony was a nice spot to watch watch the sun set and drink margaritas. The fully furnished kitchen made breakfast prep easy and inexpensive. All... More

Great Price, great location (walking distance to Downtown Disney-our destination.) Did request a room change (I am hyper sensitive to any smoke smell) and paid a $10. upgrade to get a "Downtown Disney View." SO worth it-Fantastic balcony view from 21st floor day or night. All staff members were friendly and professional: valet, check-in, manager, room service, housekeeping. Only suggestion:... More

I am staying at Buena Vista for the third time - this time for a business conference. By far this hotel has decreased in quality. First, if you are a light sleeper, do not stay here! Thankfully, I am not a light sleeper. But the doors on the rooms are heavy, loud and slam shut. The walls are paper thin.... More
