We (early 30s, professionals) stayed here 5 nights after spending 5 nights at Disney's Beach Club. The furnishings were of high quality with a luxurious / large bathroom, all the pillows/comforters you could dream of, and Nespresso machine. It got a bit warm with the covers and the thick mattress pad/cover. The pool area is nice although a bit sterile. The cabanas are ridiculously priced (more than a night in the hotel?!) but the lounge chairs around the pool were sufficient for us to use. The pool restaurant Aquamarine was good for a snack and refreshing drinks; the disney shuttles were on time; the staff were extremely friendly, but not in your face. It's a large hotel but so spacious that if you chose to, you could never interact with anyone. But what I loved is that even though it's a high class, high quality hotel, everyone was so friendly and approachable. And this was especially noted in the superb Bull & Bear restaurant. Just so delicious and I can't say enough about the amazing teamwork and interaction of staff there with customers. It is worth the splurge! The breakfast buffet at Oscars was also delicious although expensive ($30). Highly recommend grabbing pastries and coffee/tea at Muse (on the Hilton Bonnet Creek side, about 10 minute walk from inside the hotel) prior to getting to Disney. We also ate at La Luce (hilton side) which was a more reasonably priced dinner place and it was excellent. Taxi to Universal or Premium Outlets was about $30-$40 from a regular taxi that you can get them to call you (rather than taking a luxury town/SUV car that will charge more). The only quibble is that Front desk nor hotel operator did not know that there was a fee for handling packages shipped to the hotel and I had to walk all the way to the Hilton to pick it up. They were nice enough to reverse the charges. The conference facilities are plentiful. Enjoyed the Conde Nast magazines in room.
