My family of three and I stayed at your property earlier this month while we took a few days to do the parks before our cruise to the Bahamas. WOW! The hotel was outstanding and tucked away like a hidden gem! There was a tournament going on in the area and the hotel was full so we are really glad we got this reservation in advance. Here's the amazing parts of this hotel:
1)We checked in with a gentleman named Jonathan who was more than happy to lend his knowledge of the Disney Parks to us. He made every effort to make sure we did not miss any parades or fireworks for the few days we were here. He goes above and beyond!
2)The rooms we were upgraded to (also a great surprise) were HUGE! A separate living room from the bedroom gave me and my partner some privacy and let our daughter have a TV to herself. You have no idea how wonderful that is when she is 6 and has to watch that Disney Parks tour thing on TV over and over again...
3)Even though the weather was cooling down, the pool was heated and offered us relaxation.
4)The hotel was sold out for a few tournaments in the area (football, Cheer, etc) and some of the kids were a little rambunctious. At one time, they were talking in the hall next to our door and we politely asked the desk to make sure they stopped at a certain time. At no point in this stay did we have noise problems from guest next door or above us (even though our daughter accidental jumped on the bed and then the floor, prompting the people below us to make sure we were okay.)
5) Shuttle service- took 45 minutes to get to EPCOT but the bus made numerous stops at other hotels. The shuttle is NOT A DISNEY OR HOTEL OWNED SHUTTLE! They can be a few minutes late but worth fighting the traffic going into Disney.
6)Vincent at the desk in the mornings always made sure to say hello and good morning when we came down for breakfast. Talking to him was very pleasant and he called us a fast taxi to go to our dinner reservations in Downtown.
This hotel really went above and beyond to make sure our stay was magical! Holiday Inns have always been my hotels of choice and will continue to be because of the wonderful service the company provides for its guests.
