First, let me start this review by saying we weren't planning to stay at this hotel but I am so glad we did! We live in atlanta and were headed to Disney with our three girls. We assumed we would be able to get a hotel about half way. Well, everything was sold out on i75. I contacted Amex travel and they were able to book us a room at this wonderful hotel. We checked in very late (1am) and the staff welcomed us like it was the first hour of their shift. All smiles and so helpful! The room was nothing less than I would expect of this hotel. The bed was truly heavenly. The next morning we woke up to a beautiful view of a palm tree lined pool w cabanas. The hotels in the property share pools pool... Just FYI.. Then hotel next door has an amazing pool that my kids loved!! Lazy river, cabanas, zero entry pool etc. we went to the breakfast Buffett and it was perfect however pretty expensive at $32 per adult and $18 per child. We did have two breakfast included in our room so that helped. There was a bus service that went to the parks which was very close. It is a very centrally located hotel for disney. I wish we were staying the week at this hotel!
On a side note, the staff really is amazing! We had a friend whose child passed away durning the holidays from a long bout with cancer. The mom took her other daughter to Disney for Christmas because she could not bear to be at home with out her other daughter. We called concierge to let them know of their arrival. The hotel went above And beyond for this family including putting a Christmas tree in their room. While this hotel may be a little bit more expensive than some other disney hotels it is worth every penny!
