The Gaylord Palms has seen even more improvement since my last stay there - It's is now managed by Marriott and it appears they have invested a substantial amount of time, energy and $'s improving on this already good hotel. The entire place is one huge garden really with meticulous attention to the greenery. It has a light and airy feel to the whole place. We paid a premium for a room in the Emerald Bay section of the resort. In my opinion it is not worth paying that premium and in future I will stick to the St. Augustine section. Food on the premises is expensive but that is to be expected. I would have given this review 5-stars had it not been for the lack of view from our balcony (too low on the 3rd floor) in this premium room location. Never the less I will continue to recommend the hotel and will undoubtedly stay there again as it compares so well to the level of service and ambience of a Disney resort at a fraction of the price.
