Great hotel, but they need better mechanics

We arrived Monday and left Friday and the elevator still wasn't fixed. Just one elevator made wait times long. We were on the fifth floor and more often than not took the stairs rather than wait. Other than that, the hotel was top-notch, and the staff is excellent. Can't say enough about their great service.

Room service, particularly breakfast, was ungodly expensive. There was a Dennys just about a block away where I was able to walk in and take out three breakfasts for what the price of one would have cost me in the hotel.

Pet Friendly!!!!

Great location - pets stay free- Pool area great for kids- 7 year old daughter loved the water slide! Staff was friendly, room was clean- recommended for dog lovers who don't want to board their pets- Ideallly we would have stayed right in the WDW park but no dogs allowed in any of the hotels! They do have a Best Friends pet resort and they offer boarding and daycare . We used the daycare when visiting the parks.

It was okay

Nothing special about it I was told there was free WiFi and it ended up you had to pay for it. The fire alarms went off the first night and we had to evacuate. And the second night there was car alarms going off for 2 hours. Also we stayed here because they were pet friendly but EVERY one staying in the hotel complained about him being there. I will not be stating here ever again.

Poor Location

This was advertised as being close to marketplace, and that is why we booked it. It is much further than described, and is absolutely NOT a walkable distance with kids. The hotel is old, but has been adequately remodeled. The pool areas are nice. I was disappointed to see hidden "resort fee's". If you are going to charge me an extra $60 per person per night, it should be listed upfront on the booking sites. The parking is also a little bit of a challenge. On nights that they have weddings or other events in their ballrooms, the parking lot is rather full and it is a very long walk to the rooms, especially if you are in building 1 or 2.
