Responsive after Second Call

Spacious, comfortable room, would appreciate more outlets near the desk for those who attend a conference at the hotel and need to work. I value a quiet night's sleep and hot shower in the morning. The noise outside the room and absence of hot water detracted from my first 2 days. Each issue required 2 calls to hotel staff. Fortunately both were successfully resolved... after my second call.

Great place to stay for Disney vacation

Hotel is a Sheraton SPG preferred facility located on Disney property. Easy access by walking or free water ferry to Epcot and Disney's boardwalk entertainment area. There are complimentary shuttle buses to all other Disney parks. The hotel is clean, decor is excellent. There is a magnificent pool and playground area. Several good restaurants on site, including Shula's Steakhouse. This was our third stay at this hotel. Our room was clean, well designed with a flattering view of adjacent WDW Dolphin Resort (sister SPG hotel), large enough to accommodate our family. The staff is friendly and willing to help if needed. There is a mandatory $25/day resort fee in addition to rate. It covers parking, Wi-Fi Internet access and two bottles of water per day.

Rmv has better service

I made my reservation at this hotel for an extra night so that when I got to the hotel I wouldn't have to wait for them to prep a room. I have been traveling all day with a 15 month old - you can guess whyI have been in lobby for 2.5 hours because the rooms I reserved didn't adjoin. I noted this in the reservation and called last night to confirm this - no big deal I was told.So here we are waiting for the room.Service is horrific. I also asked for a crib. I imagine when I do get into the room that will probably arrive tomorrow.Could be the worst hotel experience I have had ... I travel 50 nights a year so I have a comparison.Don't waste your time - unless you don't have kids - of course at Disney world I am sure most people don't have kids ...

Checked in just today....

I'll follow this up - off to a bad start but a better ending. Toilet bowl wasn't clean and had pee stains. The rest of the room was good. They brought housekeeping and they cleaned it well. On another note, my son got a bad cut because he fell and we didn't have access to the gift shop because it was past 11pm. His scrape caused him to bleed. Hotel front desk agent Aaron Weeks hooked us up with a bandaid! Thank you for coming through.

Bug Problem

This hotel is updated and looks very nice on the outside. To say the least it was very comfortable. I would stay here again. However, for next night of my stay things changed.As I go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. I look at the mirror and I see something large and black moving. I focus in on it and to my surprise, a cockroach. Stay at your own riskI've stayed in many properties over the world and this is a first . So I called down to the front desk. To be honest when I told them about it, they did not see surprised and said that they would leave a message for the manager who would be there in the morning. They said they could do nothing for me now as it was too late. I called the next morning and they told me that they had no rooms available but I would be able to check out of my room and check into another room and then another and then another. 3 different rooms as they could not block off one room for three days. So after more hassling I was able to get moved to another room. Roaches are not a big deal.
