I've stayed in almost every area hotel/motel for the past 40 years, and THIS is the best so far. Big hi-rez TVs in each room!
Suites are state of the art (modern) with full kitchens, utensils and dishwasher. The only downside is no oven, but that would be hard to keep spotlessly clean to match all else. I am VERY picky about cleanliness, and found the Mona Lisa to surpass all others in the area.
The detached semicircular design seems to reduce hallway noise and the silence is golden. Remember to bring your card key to the pool/hot tub, as you'll need it to get back into the building.
The desk seems ready to do anything within reason to grant the guest a pleasant stay.
All other hotels have free scheduled shuttles to Disney, but here they asked WHEN do I want to go, then when and where to be picked up ... a phone number was given in case I wanted to change pickup time/location. I was shocked when they provided a punctual taxi for transportation!!! This transport is included in the room fee, and with WDW parking lot fees currently at $14 ... USE IT to avoid parking hassles.
There is a Publix grocery store close by, so stock up that big refrigerator!
From the design, I suspect this young hotel be slowly sold as a condo; so we must enjoy this great place while we can..... TEN THUMBS UP (I'm all thumbs).
