- What's Included
Very large rooms, freshly renovated (only sofa was very old). Nice pool, close to little village Celebration (nice Restaurants tobest Outsider) and all the parks. Staff very friendly, rooms very only made very late in the afternoon.
We stayed at this hotel for two nights in a one bedroom suite. The positives about the hotel are that it has a very nice pool area, that on-site dining is available and that our suite was spacious. The aspects that we felt could have been improved were the decor of our room (which we thought was bland) and the quality of the room furnishings (for example, the drawers in the chest of drawers were difficult to open).
Maria celebration was formerly called the Mona Lisa hotel. You see a huge picture of Mona Lisa which covers the wall when you walk in. There is a circular entrance which leads to a restaurant. Outside the back of the restaurant which has a breakfast buffet it leads to a patio which surrounds the circular pool. The condominium was remodelled and had light coloured walls. The cabinets in the family suite kitchen were dark brown The appliances were stainless steel. We enjoyed cooking on the stove and used the fridge. The kitchen was fully supplied with pots, pans, cutlery and dishes to make our meals. The dishwasher was small and we filled it after a meal for a full load. We were supplied soap and dishwashing detergent and scrubbing sponges. They came in daily to make our beds and clean the kitchen. We had a family suite which included a dining area which was adjacent to the living room with a brown leather coach. There was a flatscreen TV in each of the two bedrooms and living room. The two bathrooms were fairly large and had nice square brown toiletry bottles. There is a separate large shower and bathtub in the master bedroom. The shower and bathtub are combined in the second bedroom which has a queen sized bed. Both bathrooms were very clean. You can see the nightly 9 pm fireworks from Epcot from the hotel if you face the highway.There is a complimentary black luxury SUV shuttle that will take you to go shopping to pick up groceries. You can request it to go even late at night or to the Celebration area. It was nice to have a tour of downtown Celebration to see the large older houses. The Melia gym is in the Celebration hospital and not on site. You can walk there or the shuttle can take you there. The shuttle is included in the $15 resort fee per day which also gives you bottled water. You can buy Disneyland tickets in the lobby. There is a larger shuttle bus that will take you to Epcot at Disneyland. There is a schedule for the shuttle and it only goes there a few times a day. You should arrange your return ticket for the shuttle before you leave the hotel . The shuttle drops you off at Disney transportation area and meet there to get your ride back. From there you will take the monorail train to get to Epcot. The hotel was a very nice experience overall. The on-call shuttle was useful and a nice touch. The beautiful pool was clean. It was very hot and humid even mid September. I did not get a chance to use the pool or the gym. Having a kitchen and all that space and a SUV shuttle you could call on demand felt great. It was nice and quiet. Occasional noises from outside hallway.
I've been wanting to try this hotel for a couple years now. It would often show up on hotel searches and looked like a nice hotel, based on the pictures on the Web.I finally got my chance this week.I was disappointed. First off, let me say, reviews like these are relative - some people are used to staying in low-quality, budget hotels and others usually stay in higher end hotels. As well, they're used to whatever hotels are in the areas they've visited.I'm righting this review based on other hotels I've stayed in the Orlando area - generally, mid to high-end. This should help those of you choosing amongst the many, many hotels in Orlando.The good:- They did a great job marketing the hotel on the Web. The pictures look great and it sounds like a chic, Southbeach-like hotel.- The prices are OK for the value.- Every staff person I spoke with was friendly, without exception.- While they don't have an on-site fitness center, they offer complimentary access to a nice gym near by.The bad:- The rooms are pretty bland and sterile. Quite an echo just walking in the room.- The carpeting in the hallways gave away how much they spend on maintenance - they looked old and stained.- The TVs were about the size of my computer monitor at work - very small.- Really poor lighting outside. Both the parking lot and walkways were dark. I wouldn't want to be a female alone at this hotel.- Maid service just couldn't get their heads around leaving wash cloths. While front desk corrected the issue one day, it kept happening the following days.- The stairwells (at least the one closest to me) were only accessible to leave, not to enter.- They charge that cursed "resort fee" PLUS a donation they never asked me about, which they took off when I called them on it.There are definitely better hotels in the area. In fact, there's a Radisson right across the street that is just as good and cheaper.
Rooms really nice. Bed was comfortable. I was surprise they had a laundry room. Everyone who work there were nice. I would stay there again if my destination was closer. Overall not bad for a hotel stay.
