Overall the Melia is a nice hotel. The hotel is new and is well kept. The front desk staff is very friendly. Our room was very spacious and it is very close to downtown Celebration (5 minutes by car). Even though the hotel was close to a busy street, I found the room to be very quite. The bed was VERY comfortable. The wifi was good, not great.
a few of the negatives are:
1) I found 3 pubic hairs in the shower
2) There is mold in the bathroom grout (just a few specs but still gross)
3) Carpet is slightly worn in several areas
4) Several scuffs on furniture
5) $15 daily resort fee - Let me be clear, I was fully aware of the resort fee before I booked...so its not like I wasn't aware of the fee...I just don't feel the $15 fee is justified. First of all, the fee is to cover breakfast, parking, and pool (and some other forgettable items). Breakfast is very basic (We ordered 2 caffe lattes which cost almost $10 for both, only regular coffee is free) The pool is just a basic pool and parking is just regular outdoor parking...so a resort fee is not appropriate.
6) High Voltage Trasmission lines - The hotel is directly next to high voltage transmission lines (AKA really big power lines). I realize the medical community has yet to prove the effects of power lines and any disease but there is much speculation. I personally don't like spending extended periods of time near those power lines!
