The Yacht Club has most probably not only the most beautiful facade in Disney, but also the most convenient location. You can walk to Epcot, take a short boat ride to Hollywood Studios and use the (ok) service to Magic Kingdom which runs every about 20-25 minutes and takes another 20 min to get there.
The hotel from the outside is perfect, in a perfect setting with great views and really nice, relaxed holiday feel. Dining options are also very good if you are interested in good food. The Yachtsman, the Beaches and Cream and the Flying Fish Cafe across at Boardwalk are all very good.
What is however mediocre are the rooms, they are extremely well maintained, but they are in real need of a renovation. It is really hard for me to comprehend how can Disney have created all these amazing structures, attractions and parks and they cannot start working on their rooms and particularly the bathrooms. They are soooo old and so small. The tub shares a tiny space with the toilet (ours was very stained and really not very pleasant); in order to get into the room you have to stand carefully in front of the toilet to make space for the door to close and get into the tub. The room decor is ok, still dated of course and the carpet is old as well…
If I had to go back I would go again because of the location and the beautiful exteriors and because it seems to me that all the nice hotels actually share the same problem of old and dated rooms. So please Disney do some of your magic and fix those rooms!
