this is a great hotel for a number of reasons, but the construction could make you rethink it for now.
On the monorail system and it's proximity to ticket and transportation makes it the best location in my view.
We had a great room. the fireworks and electric parade were visible from the room, which was great.
They have movies at night on the "beach" for the kids.
Awesome pool with slide which is also a con since it's under renovation.
Staff was on their game and super friendly.
Good restaurants and a nice lobby bar.
renovations are unavoidable. The lobby is under complete overhaul so the atmosphere is nothing. They're about to renovate the family pool. It was open for our stay and was a highlight for us. After going to the parks for a few hours, going back to the pool was such a thrill. Although they have another pool, it's just a dated oval shape pool without a slide. If the pool is at all a big deal (which it is for us) select a different hotel. There wasn't a hot tub. Honestly, the renovations are my only con, but they are extensive. When they're through I'm sure it'll be wonderful.
Staff was courteous and told me I could use the Floridian for the hot tub. We did go there and I kind of wished I stayed there. Beautiful lobby with nice stores, Lilly Pulitzer, etc. Both pools were awesome and kid friendly. They had an arcade which Poly didn't have due to renovations. I would suggest this hotel instead of poly until renovations are completed.
