We stayed here for the weekend and have always enjoyed the excellent location and friendly service at this hotel. Check in was quick and courteous as always. I think this is the second or third time I've checked in with RJ and he is such a pleasure to deal with. It's located within easy walking distance to Disney springs plus the hotel offers a courtesy shuttle very often to the Disney Springs and the Disney parks nearby. This is our go-to hotel when we don't necessarily want to stay in a Disney property (even though we're still on the property which is why the location can't be beat). The lobby area bar and restaurant recently underwent renovations since my last visit and I have to say that the new furnishings and decor really brighten up all of the guest areas downstairs. We even came back to the hotel early to relax away from the parks, enjoyed a few drinks at the bar, and some takeout from the restaurant just to enjoy the view and our room and some relaxation. Service in the bar area was very fast and friendly. We had a slight mix up with our room but but RJ at the front desk and the manager Angela had it taken care of within a matter of minutes. This is still my favorite hotel to stay in whenever I'm in this area for business or pleasure and we can't wait to come back! Hopefully we'll be back when it's a little warmer out so we can enjoy the great pool area that we love so much.
