“Love The Swan!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This elegant and eclectic hotel has everything you could possibly need for a lovely stay. We stayed for 5 nights to go to the Disney parks. I loved being here with two teens because it gave us all the conveniences of staying at a Disney related hotel while also giving us a little break from all the character stuff of the parks. The transportation to and from the parks was terrific and timely. The pools are lovely and the swan boats on the lake between The Swan and Dolphin hotels are so special! Although it seemed like The Dolphin is the "main" hotel of the two, we ended up being very happy to be at The Swan. Since the two properties are attached by a lovely walkway, it seems like one hotel which we did not realize at all before staying there. Online it appeared to us to be much more like two entirely separate hotels. This was a nice surprise! The Dolphin has a 24 hour restaurant for late night snacks which my daughters loved. The Swan seemed quieter and more low key and we really enjoyed that aspect. The restaurant with the giant tree was very good for breakfast. Room service was especially delicious, convenient, and well-priced too. The staff is very friendly throughout the hotel. The concierge on the lobby level can help with the Disney fast pass process if needed. Our room was clean and recently renovated with a view overlooking the entrance and the nearby lake. If we stayed again, I would request a room overlooking the pool and lake area that faces The Dolphin. We didn't spend a lot of time in our room, but it was very comfortable with every possible convenience. The bed was truly heavenly! After staying at The Swan I will be much more likely to seek out Westin brand hotels in the future. We really loved our stay.

Room Tip: Seems like all the rooms would be fine. There are some that overlook a courtyard and others that ov...

From the room to the pool to the resturants everything was fantastic. Friendly and helpful staff guided us through our first Disney experience. Pool was very clean with more than enough seats for us to soak up some sun and drinks while the kids splashed and rode the water slide. Convienent bus and ferry to all Disney locations

This place has an awesome staff. Especially Matt at the front desk whose smile and honest demeanor helped make the wait for a special room with a view of the Epcot fireworks palatable. However...when the momentous and anticipated sky show started...all I could see was the reflections and all I experienced was the noise. Certainly not worth the wait. The sleeping room though clean was extremely dated with a teeny bathroom. Although loyal to Starwood not sure I would return.

We frequently visit Disney World and always stay at the Dolphin. We love the location, amenities and atmosphere. We had the opportunity to use the pool this trip and the children loved the slide. Thank you for another fantastic vacation!!

Stayed at the Dolphin resort for a conference and it was great to have the opportunity to see the resort from the "inside".
The room was great, large bed, good amenities except tea making (!) with a safe, aircon, TV and large bathroom.
Plenty of different opportunities to eat, enjoy the sun and to see the Board walk and related areas.
Staff all very friendly and helpful and enough free activities to fill the spare time.

Green Features: Offered a package to reduce the housekeeping in exchange for a food voucher which was good to see.
