We arrived for our 4 day stay late (12:40am) Monday night...Scott at the front desk was so helpful getting us checked in--very friendly and knowledgable (RI is lucky to have such a loyal employee providing such great service to the weary traveller). Our room was more than adequate--if you're brining kids, consider the Loft Suite (Penthouse) for just the other bathroom, at least--you'll appreciate it--we sure did!
The breakfast was hearty, tasty and filling. Even though they don't have much variety in the hot stuff(eggs everyday, french toast/pancakes alternating, ham/sausage alternating), there are many other choices--cold cereal, oatmeal, waffle machine (and they have 3 irons--so there's never too long of a line). If you choose, you can make breakfast in the full kitchen--so helpful to have for the evenings--complete with full oven if you want to take-n-bake a pizza.
I was initially worried about the pool and hot tub. They both seem small...but was pleasantly surprised to find it adequate--there was never many people there at once, and since it is open 24 hrs, there's always a time when its empty. I enjoyed sitting in the hot tub while doing a few loads of laundry. Wish we had time to shoot a few hoops on the sports court, too!
The ART #7 shuttle picks up right outside--and the number 8 route picks up at the hotel next door--it was nice to have 2 options in case we "just missed" one.
Other conveniences--Gardenwalk is right across the street--but if you're like me, you're too tired after a day of Disney, but there are some good restaurants close by if you want to avoid the pricey Disney fare. There's a Food 4 Less just down Katella (thanks for the directions, Scott!) where you can stock up your fridge.
We had such a nice stay here--and will highly recommend to friends and family. I have no complaints from my stay!
