Get place to stay. The beds are very comfortable. The decor is comtemporary. The spa staff and facility is great, clean and relaxing. You can even use the spa pool, wet sauna and dry sauna during your length of stay. Free locker in the spa when you use the facility. Great bar/restaurant on the lower level that you can take...

Not what I expected from the pictures on the website. Service was great, valet guys were very friendly, dont have to pay to park if you dont use valet, never used the pool, but patio off of room was filthy and was afraid to take my shoes off in the room. Other guests were very loud all night, seemed like... More

When I saw the rate I thought the place must have been old and run down despite the website making it look beautiful. But the website did it justice. It was a beautiful property. The pool, although a bit of a walk, was excellent for families - shallow and deep ends, a nice waterfall and hot tub. Pool Bar was... More

My husband and I returned here for our 10th wedding anniversary in June. We had our honeymoon here 10 years ago and have been going back to Orlando ever since. We have stayed at most of the Lake Buena Vista hotels, Vistana, Safari,Hawthorn and Vista Cay on I Drive, but this one is truley special. I would highly recommend you... More

I found Buena Vista Palace after some searching online for a property that looked really nice for a reasonable rate... this was a two day weekend extension for pleasure of what had been a business conference at another very nice Orlando area hotel. First, the reality didn't quite live up the pictures... but in fairness, it rarely does. The front... More

Stayed with family (wife &+ kids 6 & 9) for a 3-day weekend to go to the Disney Parks. Check in was easy, quick and friendly despite the place having major conferences (Boy Scouts, FL Court Reporters, Weddings, etc.). We asked to be next to family on a separate room and we got a room with a joint door. Excellent... More

When we arrived, it seemed like a 5 star resort. Rooms were big (we got the island suite) and nicely decorated. The staff is nice and cater to every need. However, there were cockroaches and buses to Disney were like dick Cheney's heart, sporadic and unreliable. Buses average 40 minutes. I'll be booking Disney next time. Those buses come every...

This is another example of a hotel where, if you've stayed at many medium to upscale motels, you will find issue with the place. But if you are a tourist, and stay at Days Inn's or Holiday Inns, you might think it's a great property. The exterior is nice, although a bit dated. It once was one of the first... More

My family and I travel to Orlando quite often. This trip was a combo of business and leisure. I was very excited to be staying at this property since it is located so close to Downtown Disney and I had never experienced it before. The actual hotel itself was great. The lobby is beautful and very modern. The bell boys... More

A little confusing when we got there but learned everything within minutes. Did not pay for the room with the great view but got a good view of epcot/fireworks anyway. Wish the gift shop was open a little later or earlier because with all our plans we did not get a florida T-shirt. Overall it was beyond our expectations and... More
