My family of four stayed here for 5 days. The hotel is brand new, rooms are spacious and confortable, the location is close to all the local attactions. Even though I didn't play golf, the adjacent course looked immaculate. But.. for a luxury hotel the service is typical of your average Hilton (owner of the property). "No" was the first answer, and when you could get somone to agree to help you.. it took a few times asking to get it done. Called down to get our car from valet.. 30 mins later no one had told the valet.
Don't stay here with kids. Even though it is an Orlando destination, the only dinner restaurant inthe hotel (Bull and Bear) has not accomodation for food any real kid will eat. The waitress had no interest in trying to help.. sorry, that salad only comes with anchovies. Room service solved this, but you have to enjoy eating in your room.. aftre enough coaxing, we were able to call room service and have it delivered int he lobby bar.
There is a new Hilton hotel on the same property, about aq 10 minute walk.. in fact every time we asked for something kid related, we were told we could walk to the Hilton to get it.
For an adult couple, probably a decent choice.. for a family.. stay at the Hilton, or maybe better, a Disney property.
