The positives: Fabulous location! Only a 5 minute drive to Universal Studios. I could see Hogwarts from my bed on the 14th floor of the Tower! Cool! The cost of the shuttle to US was covered by the Resort Fee. The drivers were very nice and efficient. It was so much nicer than having to drive and park ourselves.
The pool area really is beautiful. The bar staff are great.
The price was very reasonable. The wifi was good. The staff that we interacted with were very friendly and helpful. The room and grounds were very clean. The courtyard in the tower was pretty.
The negatives: The air conditioner was very loud. It didn't keep me from sleeping but it really was loud. The carpet through out 14th floor and our room was shabby. And the blanket on our bed was very shabby. If it were mine I would have thrown it out long ago. We didn't have any trouble with the elevators but they are definitely showing their age.
