“Initial Impression. Not bad, but yet to stay...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

So far, so good. My husband and I recently booked a 4 night stay here for mid October 2014. We love boutique hotels and were pleased to find this renovated hotel. The guy I spoke to to make our reservation was ok, he seemed a bit rushed. That was cool, because I called back and pressed zero determined to have ALL of my questions answered. I just got off the phone with a delightful woman named Jennifer who was very professional and answered all of my questions. Jennifer ensured me that the actions problem would be fixed by the time we check in and that the pool bar would be open! I hope to have a positive review to add in a few weeks.

I was guided to this hotel for a business conference this month (Septermber 2014), and I wasn't disappointed. The staff was amazing and attentive, the conference venues were amazingly clean and wide open, and the rooms were super clean and modern. All rooms have two (double) beds in them, a LARGE HD tv, huge closet, walk-in shower (some rooms also have a jet tub), and a small mini-fridge. My only complaint is that there is not a microwave in any room, and although I don't drink coffee, my boss was upset that none of the rooms came with their own coffee maker. Other than that, non of the 300+ people at our conference had any complaints. The one downside (and this is not a knock on the hotel or the staff) to room 612, or any room facing the highway, is that there is audible noise from the traffic (notable big rig air brake noises); this can be drowned out a little by increasing the fan noise in the room, however.

Room Tip: Rooms facing away from the highway are quieter.

Newly renovated property (at the site of what used to be Royal Plaza) on the ground of Walt Disney World Resort. Easy walking distance to Downtown Disney. Frequent shuttle bus service to the various Disney parks.

Pro's:
1. Brand new property. Highly chic, beautiful lobby with a very energetic feel. Rooms, while a bit small, are modern, clean, contemporary, and very comfortable.
2. Professional staff members.

Con's:
1. Excruciatingly, painfully slow and unreliable wifi internet connection.
2. During peak morning and evening shower time, the water pressure in the shower can become pathetically low, literally down to a trickle.
3. Self parking at $16 per night amounts to highway robbery.
4. Watch your kids from grabbing the small packs of snacks left in each room... These "B Treated" items priced at $5 per item will leave you B Dazzled at check-out.
5. Rooms with view toward Interstate 4 can be noisy at times.

Did not try any restaurants or food service in the hotel, as much cheaper and greater variety options abound outside the resort.

Room Tip: Ensure the room does not have a view toward Interstate 4.

I live in Winter Park (Orlando) and my girlfriend and I wanted a mini "staycation"so we booked a room at the B on Hotels Tonight. We were going to eat and go out in downtown Disney for the evening. Upon checking in I asked for a room on a high floor
In order to possibly watch the fireworks. We were told no and put in a room in the 2 story building. Lame. We were then informed of the resort fee and parking fee. $16 to park your own car in their lot and walk to your room. $20 for a resort fee. We were told it covered free transportation to the attractions and figured we were going to pay that in cabs anyway so no biggie. We got a ride to downtown disney and that was it. Tipped the driver $10. The driver gave us his card to be picked up later. When we left at 10:00pm we called and he was at home. We could not find a shuttle and was sent on a wild goose chase looking for one. We ended up getting a cab and paying $15 including tip to get back. After getting back to the room the AC was blowing warm and the room was 79 degrees. Informed the desk and they sent a maintenance guy that crawled into the AC vent and said he fixed it. The room never got cooler than 78. I called to see if there was a soda machine and ice machine to find out there isn't. Hotel with no ice machine? Lame. I had to order a mini coke through room service for $3 and a $4 delivery charge. $10 with tip. Checking out the next day I was going to just chalk it up as a loss but decided to inquire more about the resort fee and possibly get refunded. The front desk clerk danced around the resort fee and told me that it wasn't for free transportation but that it paid the cost of the two complimentary 4oz waters in the room and for a complimentary coffee in the restaurant. Lame. It wasn't even worth arguing because I work in the hospitality industry and have hundreds of people a week sit at my bar. If one of those guests are dissatisfied I'll do everything in my power to make it right. We work with a lot of hotels so I know how much leeway they get to rectify a situation, it just depends on who you deal with. I guess Trip Advisor should warn about the resort fees as well. In hind site, we should have just driven home drunk and slept in our own bed. The AC works and the water is free.

Stayed here for the night for a quick girls get away. The hotel was very clean and the decor was very hip and current. Newly renovated. Clean fresh feel. Nothing fancy but great for the price. Very close to downtown Disney and I-4.

Got emailed all summer from B Resort touting their new hotel opening in Orlando. Prices were very appealing and thought perhaps we'll try it one time. Usually we stay at the Swan and Dolphin. We read the reviews on this site before booking our overnight stay and the reviews about the air conditioning were absolutely correct. Ours worked but it was so loud - all day and all night no matter how you adjusted it. Luckily my four and a half year old slept fine, but my husband and I didn't. I appreciated the competitive rate, the beauty of the hotel, and the staff helpfulness, but if we can't get a decent night's sleep, we'd rather stay elsewhere. If they would fix the air conditioning system so that it wasn't as loud as a train, we'd tell people to stay there.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 days after a cruise. Let me start with a few positives: the guys working the valet were amazing job. They were Very helpful, quick and kind. The lobby and outside pool area are amazing. The beds and the pillows were nice. Now for the negatives and there were many: we found several pieces of hair in the sink and shower; although the sink was new, the drain was dirty, the paint and grout in the bathroom were cracking. There were rust spots on the bathroom door. It looked as if someone painted over old paint and/or grout. The water in the shower does not get very hot. Our view was of an old dirty wall and a parking lot. The worst thing was the a/c it was very loud and it didn't get cold. they sent the "engineer" up on the first day...on the second day they sent him up again when I realized the a/c wouldn't stay on. He came up checked a few things and then told us that it has a mind of its own and that some times it's controlled by opening the door "really". Later that night when we got back to the room, the room was 75 degrees we had it set at 68. I called to complain and they sent the same guy back up. At roughly 1130 the engineer told us that it couldn't be fixed and that we could move to another room. Of course we were not interested as we needed to get up at 4:30 AM. Management, please consider spending more resources on updating the ACs and cleaning the rooms and less on the lobby. After all, guess sleep in the rooms not in the lobby.

angeldgood, greetings from B Resort & Spa and thank you for sharing your recent experience with us.

I have shared your comments with the Directors of Housekeeping and Engineering for their review and follow-up. We are currently in the process of rectifying opportunities identified within our AC units. On the other hand, I am delighted to read about your positive interactions with our valet team and lobby and pool areas.
