We are Marriott owners and have stayed in many different villas, many in the Orlando area. The Marriott Imperial Palms was by far the best. The most impressive thing was the incredible front desk staff. They were the most polite, helpful, cheerful, efficient group we ever met. Part of our group had to travel to the hotel by cab, and unfortunately the cab driver took us to the wrong hotel in this large complex. Ours sent a shuttle for us immediately, and then the front desk staff personally walked us to our villa.
The villas are all 3 bedrooms - a major plus! DVD player is blue ray. The rooms were wonderful, you could swim in the master bedroom tub. Kitchen was very up-to-date and clean. The villa itself was very large. We were in an end unit by the quiet pool - no noise at all. The screened in balcony overlooked a waterway. We very much loved the screened in balcony!
Excellent Marketplace in this Marriott as well.
I am sure most people drive here, but we did need some family in a cab. A word of caution - no cabdriver knows where "Vacation Way" is, which is the street address of the hotel. Just tell them Marriott World Center and it's a snap.
The complex itself is huge - 3 Marriott timeshares and an extremely large hotel which served to us as a landmark as we were driving. We did not use the amenities at the other hotels on the complex but you would need to use the shuttle if you wished to do so. I don't know why you would want to though.
The hotel is extremely close to Disney - something that they do not advertise very much. It's a simple drive to the main gate.
My only minor peeve was that the concierge desk was not overly helpful booking golf for my husband. The course attached to the hotel was closed on the day he wanted to play and they told him "there are lots of other places for you to play" but did not offer to help him find them or book them. This felt a bit shabby but was not a major issue for us. The front desk staff more than made up for them!
When we return to Florida again, I will definitely pick the Imperial Palms!
