Interior of hotel room may not live up to the price, but the hotel is very well kept, clean and has great vibe. Highlight of the hotel besides that it's a Starwood property is its location. Walking distance to the Disney Boardwalk/Epcot makes it very accessible. One problem I had with the room is the noise. Due to last minute... More

I will start out with the positives. Great location and beautiful hotel! We had an amazing check-in experience! For our anniversary we were upgraded into a newly renovated room for free, along with complimentary drink passes! The only thing I was not a fan about was the parking. You have to pay every time you leave the parking lot and... More

The Michael Graves designed hotel is beautiful. Staff was great, as was location. The rooms were recently renovated. Comfort-wise, they were great. Beds were clean and firm, water pressure is strong, AC is new and cold. Design-wise, the rooms are an injustice to the building in which they are housed. The room is a bland mixture of light blue and... More

There is nothing exceptional or extravagant about staying at this Disney resort hotel (the Dolphin). You may be led to believe that it is a luxury resort hotel - but then you would be wrong. Maybe in years past it was clean, new and better - but our room just looked dated, worn and uncomfortable. We stayed in a suite... More

I've stayed at this property at least four times and I like it better than any of the other Disney properties. It's owned by Sheraton for starters and was built in the 90's as opposed to something like the Polynesian (hate). The BlueZoo is a fun restaurant and bar. Shula's is a really great chain steak house on the pricey... More

My husband surprised me by taking us to Disney for an early Valentine's Day trip with the kids. We were in a family alcove room that was recently updated, and it was GORGEOUS! The room had a balcony and SO many windows that overlooked the walkway to the Dolphin and the lake. We were completely impressed with the staff and... More

When we made our reservation at the Dolphin, we thought because the names are listed together, the properties would basically be the same. Not true at all! The Dolphin looks like a hotel from the 80's and the rooms are really in need of new decor. We had a note slipped under our door at 11pm one night informing us... More

Good location near the Boardwalk and served by water taxi as well (certainly accessible by car too). Our lodging was at the Dolphin. Lots and lots of rooms and we were at the end of one of the corridors on the 11th floor, so it was quite a hike to the elevators. Room for two was plenty spacious, clean, plenty... More

My husband and I visited the Dolphin for a weekend trip to Epcot. It is a great location and services for transportation were provided. Just about every 15 minutes boats would take you to the Boardwalk (which was walkable from the hotel) or Epcot. We even were upgraded to a junior suite and they could accommodate our early check-in request.... More

My family stayed at the Swan in January 2016. The hotel has recently been remodeled. I couldn't tell if I had a remodeled room but the room was very nice. A nice touch is to have a vanity in the bathroom and another out of the bathroom allowing two people to get ready at the same time. Our room was... More
