Restaurant Reviews:

Since the only way a more informed decision can be made by future visitors is by a full description, we ask that you provide more than just a sentence or two on the restaurant. Bad example: "The food was great and the waiters very attentive. I'd eat there again." Good example: "I ordered the house specialty (filet mignon) and it was cooked perfectly, my partner ordered the chicken which was rather dry but the orange sauce was good. We had heavenly flan for dessert, and the wait staff was very attentive. Dinner for two including wine was $40-50."

· Date of visit.
· Type of meal. (Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, Dessert, Drinks only, etc)
· While you will probably cover these points in your written review, please also include a one-line rating of the following four aspects of your visit: Service, Price, Food, Atmosphere.

We reserved a 1st floor standard room w/ a king size bed through AAA for $67 a night. Our room was very nice and spacious and also had a small patio that overlooked the pool. The bathroom had marble countertops,a hairdryer and more towels than we knew what to do with. The room overall had pretty standard amenites;a iron and board, TV w/remote, fold out couch and we received the paper every morning which was nice. We mainly chose this hotel because of the price and great location. Downtown Disney as well as other shopping and restaurants were just a short walk away. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. (The nightly happy hour with a complimentary cocktail was a nice perk too.) "

We booked the Courtyard using a friends and family discount through Marriot. There was 3 adults and one infant. We had a two double beds in our room. I booked the room over 2 months before arrival, and requested a room facing Downtown Disney, non-smoking, crib, and early check in. We got all of these except for the room facing Downtown Disney. Upon check in they said that they were booked up, which isn't what they told me when I reserved the room. They told me I could have a room facing the highway or one facing the hotel next door. After reading other reviews about the noise from the highway, I took the one facing the hotel. There wasn't much of a difference, and the ones facing the highway had balconies, ours didn't. Their website said that the free drink reception was from 4-6pm, but it was really 5-6pm. Our room was very humid, and we could not get the room really cool. The beds were very soft, and if you have a bad back you will wake up in pain. Now for the good. It was very close to Downtown Disney and the walk was very nice. There is a very nice pond with fountain in front of the Hilton that you pass on the way down. The pool was very nice, and the grounds were well manicured. The lobby was nice as well. We rented a car and did not use the shuttle buses, but from the people that I talked to that worked there, we made a wise decision. In all honesty, the proximity to Downtown Disney was nice, and I would stay there again at that price, but I would not pay more than the original price listed on Expedia for $79 a night. You could stay at the All-Stars on Disney property or many other hotels almost as close and the room would probably be comparable or better.

Got a great rate on Priceline $29. This was a quick trip, to burn the leftover day on hoppers. The rooms were large & the staff was great. The location was perfect. I would stay here again at the begining or end of a disney trip. I don't think I would have liked stay for more than the days we stayed.
