First off, check in was great. Kenji was really welcoming and after reading trip advisor reviews I requested a non-interconnecting tower room, and we were upgraded to a firework view room. Unfortunately the person I was travelling with couldn't stay high up so we settled for a lower floor room. This room was, like so many other rooms reviewed here, was very damp smelling and the bed linen was actually wet. Plus the phone didn't work. We went back to reception and Danielle was very apologetic and found us a different room. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. Wifi was a bit hit and miss but we didn't really need it. Downtown Disney is literally across the road and we used the Disney buses which were really convenient and drivers very helpful. We drank in the Kooks sports bar a couple of nights and staff and food are really good (especially Erica). We did self parking and didn't find the walk to the car park an issue. Overall, good hotel, especially for location, but I have stated in better in the area.
