great location, staff and service.

Great location to disney entry. Did not use the shuttle. Nice check-in, helpful in getting airline boarding passes printed. Clean, fairly quiet except for late-night people coming in across the hall. Very good cleaning and service of room. Using the on-line coupon code for a discount and the rate of the room - a super bargin.

Used for sleeping purposes only

It was everything I needed for my business trip. Did not use any of the amenities. It was very clean. If you are looking primarily for a place to sleep, this is great. If you like fancy places with lots of things to do, this is not for you.

Great for Business

Staff were very friendly and engaging. Quick to offer assistance and seemed to truly care about their guests. Parking was good, rooms were large, comfortable and clean and the elevator was quick! (fridge and microwave in the room) Coffee was available from the bar and the free cookies were yummy. Many places to eat around the hotel and only 15 minutes from all the parks. Safe, clean and a great value. Really did enjoy the hotel - could not believe how nice the staff were!!

This hotel is average.

The hotel is rated #1 on another site but I don't get it. Yes, the rooms are clean, but everything else was just average. The hotel is located right next to I-4 (noisy) my room was right next to the top floor elevators (noisy). The sleep number beds are not for everyone (me). Even discounting the negatives I have listed it is only average with slightly updated furnishings/electronics.

My review of Radisson Hotel Lake Buena Vista

clean & comfortable room. staff is friendly, and accomodating. near most attractions if visiting the area for those. hotel doesn't have a business center which is a minus, however, fedex/kinkos is a few blocks away. Restaurant doesn't post a menu for perusal which is a minus. traffic in the area is a minus, although not a fault of the hotel.
