The Front Desk line is always 10 deep anytime of day. Be prepared to wait unless your a Starwood Preferred member. Be prepared to get upsold if you booked through an on-line service. They tell everyone that their room was booked but not guaranteed, ...we do have the epcot view for $25 more a night, etc. The Bellmen are fast...

We arrived late Thanksgiving night after a 6-hour flight and arrived at the Dolphin to check-in. Sadly, it was a negative experience. The lady was direct and handed me a packet of information. I asked about my gold status benefits and was informed I would not receive them since we were there on a package for our bridge convention. I...

This hotel's location is good, right next to Disney's Hollywood Studios and close to Epcot. A free shuttle stops here every 20 minutes to take you to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and other Disney Parks. The food was decent. Staff was friendly. The kids loved seeing Pluto and Goofy at breakfast.

Stayed at the WDW Dolphin Hotel eight nights while my husband played in a bridge tournament. When we pulled up to the front door to register, the valet (Mark, bald on top, dark plastic glasses) requested our car keys and told us quite harshly that we could take no more than 10 minutes to register. This caused us much stress...

I'm currently staying at the Swan and the past 2 mornings my family has been awoken by the family next door. I can hear the conversation between the parents and the screaming kid. If tonight wasn't the last night here I would be moving my room. I would recommended paying the extra $$ and saying at an official Disney property.

Spacious, comfortable room, would appreciate more outlets near the desk for those who attend a conference at the hotel and need to work. I value a quiet night's sleep and hot shower in the morning. The noise outside the room and absence of hot water detracted from my first 2 days. Each issue required 2 calls to hotel staff. Fortunately...

Hotel is a Sheraton SPG preferred facility located on Disney property. Easy access by walking or free water ferry to Epcot and Disney's boardwalk entertainment area. There are complimentary shuttle buses to all other Disney parks. The hotel is clean, decor is excellent. There is a magnificent pool and playground area. Several good restaurants on site, including Shula's Steakhouse. This...

I made my reservation at this hotel for an extra night so that when I got to the hotel I wouldn't have to wait for them to prep a room. I have been traveling all day with a 15 month old - you can guess why I have been in lobby for 2.5 hours because the rooms I reserved didn't...

I'll follow this up - off to a bad start but a better ending. Toilet bowl wasn't clean and had pee stains. The rest of the room was good. They brought housekeeping and they cleaned it well. On another note, my son got a bad cut because he fell and we didn't have access to the gift shop because it...

This hotel is updated and looks very nice on the outside. To say the least it was very comfortable. I would stay here again. However, for next night of my stay things changed.
