This hotel truly exceeded our expectations. After full days of chaos and crowds, it was so great to return to the calm and quiet every night. The rooms are clean and modern. The restaurant and bar were also very good. Our waitress, Souad, was very efficient and made good suggestions (ie the apple blossom dessert!). The bartender, Donna, was also very personable and mixes a great strawberry mojito. Really, all of the staff we encountered were friendly, helpful and cheerful. Having snacks available nearly 24/7 (though at Disney prices) was also a plus.
We somehow didn't realize initially that this hotel provides free shuttle service to all Disney parks and downtown disney (even though it's an easy walk, having the option after 6:00 p.m. is great). So that was a great, unexpected perk. Our only suggesstions for improvement would be to relocate the drop off for Magic Kingdom from the Transportation Center to the park entrance and the Downtown pickup to the Marketplace.
