I chose this hotel due to it's proximity to Magic Kingdom and frequency of shuttle service.
Overall I liked the hotel( entrance, staff, dining on site) and the shuttle to Magic Kingdom was as advertised. The shuttle returning did not arrive at the correct pick up place.
We were within walking distance to Downtown Disney which was great.
The room itself was on the 8th floor with a view of Downtown Disney and also Epcot in the distance where we could see some of the fireworks. The biggest problem was that the AC did not work well so it was either too warm or very noisy.
There was a small leak under the sink which was not a big deal to us but if not fixed I'm sure will cause permanent damage.
The lights between the beds kept flickering which was annoying.
The patio/balcony was a decent size and it was nice to sit out at night time.
If the problems in the room were fixed, mainly the AC then I would have no hesitation at recommending this hotel.
