We stayed in room 6371 for two nights. Beautiful atrium view, the room was clean, the atrium had a lot of cool things to see; koi fish, turtles, baby alligators. Love the sounds of the waterfalls. The adult pool was immaculate, love the way it lit up at night. I was not a fan of the pool closing at 8 pm though, especially after being out all day. Unfortunately despite all this, we had terrible issues with parking. Our room key cards never worked at the gate. We waited 10 minutes after checking in for someone to come open the gate, leaving took 5 minutes as the attendant tried to get it to work and wrote our information down, came back later and waited 20 minutes for someone to come open the gate. We called the front desk, they reset out key cards, still didn't work. I got new ones in the morning, still didn't work leaving and coming in. At that point, we didn't even want to leave because we would have to wait a while for someone to open the gate. I told the girl at the front desk at check out that we had issues with parking both days, she said she would refund it. I checked the receipt later in my email and she only refunded one day. I called the front desk a few days later and they said they would contact their accounting department for the refund and still never got a callback or refund to this day.

I have had at least 3 wonderful experiences at this hotel, and while visiting the Orlando area with my sister, I wanted the same experience. Unfortunately the hotel was a ghost town because of COVID 19. We arrived before 2 PM, after walking two Universal parks. Our room had a musty smell. Being a senior, my sister hoped for a bit of a nap. Unfortunately, at 3 PM, there was a fire drill, and we had to walk down 7 flights of stairs. After the fire drill, the only restaurants open for an adult beverage were the Pool restaurant and the sports bar. Because of the lack of choice for dinner restaurants, we ate in our room. I woke with a sore throat. The spa was closed. Needless to say, I was disappointed. Could have had the same experience at any other three star hotel/motel for less costs. I would give them a second chance once the Coronavirus is a thing of the past

This is a large Hotel, a few miles away from the Disney property and all that it has. With that being said, however, it still takes about 15 minutes or so just to get to the Disney property. In some ways, that is a plus. But if you are looking for a non-Disney hotel within walking or short driving distance to Disney, there are other locations. This is a large convention Hotel with a lot of charm. The also-close-by Marriott World Center is just a large convention center. This has charm based upon its special theme. The hotel theme is based on Florida with an emphasis on St Augustine (USA’s oldest city), Key West, The Everglades with some South Florida and Jax thrown in. While no theme could ever capture those locations (hey, you are already in Florida – go check them out!), the theme does give it a special feeling and a little fun. It also provides for some fun event space. Our stay was during the Covid-19 pandemic. First the place was clean, hand sanitizers were available, and everyone wore masks. Check-in was well done and a breeze. While the property is indeed large, the theming broke up the feeling some, so it was nice to walk around. The pool was crowded. Although they are trying to have social distancing, I can only imagine when it is going full force with some chairs lined up for rows. I was not a fan of the pool set-up, but I did notice they had what appeared to be a nice water park area. Our room was nice and spacious. The bathroom was modern and well done. Our bed was very comfortable. We had an inside balcony. At night there was a light show that was a lot of fun. For the most part our room was quiet, but an elevator close by did cause some noise. There are plenty of amenities with several restaurant choices. Some of these restaurants were not operating. The hotel is trying to deal with the pandemic the best way it can. This was anticipated. This is a great place to stay or hold a function. We certainly enjoyed ourselves

I booked 2 nights at the Gaylord in Orlando and when we arrived to our room there were 2 issues. One the view was of the roof when I booked a pool view. And two there were mold in the shower it was nasty. So we called and they moved us to another room like 2 hours later. Then in the new room yet agian there was mold in the bathroom. So I told the manager and she said someone will come clean it and I'll call you back to follow up. No follow up call I had to call and the guy told me we were never going to call you back. He did nothing to help the situation and was really rude. He said we can just cancel your stay and go elsewhere. I am a Marriott member and I have never been treated like this before. I will never return to this hotel. I went down the street to World Center Marriott which is cheaper, clean, and really nice.

I'd love to be able to tell you all about this hotel but so much of it was shuttered due to COVID19 that I really can't The website did inform me that the steakhouse was closed but failed to mention that , the seafood restaurant, the Moor was now open on Friday and Saturday only. Thanks for that since we were there on Monday. The bar we ate at was really good. food, drinks and service were all very pleasing. Social distancing was easy since it looked like a ghost town. Room 7376 was excellent including the balcony overlooking a corner of the atrium. The bed was cozy and free of any hint of wear. The furniture and carpet were clean and crisp. The bathroom was fairly well appointed and had enough towels to satisfy my girlfriend. Overall an excellent room with plenty of space. i'd love to book a return trip when everything is open.
