Yes, the location is great and the price very competitive considering the location, but after many years of staying at the property for both business & pleasure, I won't be returning anytime soon.
Hilton has added a $20.00 per day amenities fee which is to cover internet service 1 cup of Starbucks coffee & 20% off their restaurants. Since an ever-increasing number of us have internet via smart phones this so called amenity is quickly becoming obsolete. They might as well offer free fax service. Of the 4 on property restaurant outlets, 1 is under closed due to renovations and the other is not permitted. Seemingly, I paid $20.00 per day for 1 cup of Starbucks.
Rooms come equipped with refrigerators which is always a nice plus, but mine was broken. Upon advising housekeeping, the refrigerator was removed from it's cupboard and left in the middle of my guest room floor until I called again.
The bus service to Disney parks is generally efficient but not beefed up for peak hours. At the conclusion of the fireworks at Magic Kingdom there was a mob scene of everyone trying to squeeze themselves into the one bus that arrived to service 4 hotels. A mini skirmish broke out as someone jumped the line to get on the bus & an elderly couple was pushed aside. The number of people that jammed onto the bus had to exceed all safety codes as it was an absolutely dangerous commute from the park to the Hilton.
Hilton--shame on you!
