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.

Ground transportation Services:

Ground transportation companies vary widely in the types of services offered, so please be specific about the details of your experience. Things to mention in your review:

· Destination. (Airport to hotel, airport to cruise port, hotel to theme parks, etc.)
· What type of vehicle. (Sedan, limo, van, shuttle, bus, etc.)
· How many people in your party and rate paid.
· 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: Price, Vehicle Comfort / Cleanliness, Driver

Future visitors will certainly appreciate any extra information you can provide: how long was the trip to your destination; who paid for parking / tolls (you or the driver); were car seats offered or available, and at what cost; did you have to share the service with other customers; were grocery stops included in your trip; how knowledgeable was the driver.

We stayed at the Spring Hill Suites at the Marriott Village. We were very impressed with all 3 of the hotels there. Very clean, newer hotels. The continential breakfast consisted of mostly cold breakfast items, fruit, cereal, bagels, yoguart, milk and juices. It was nice to have a couch in addition to the bed to sit on. Also, having a refrig and a microwave with seperate sink was wonderful. The bathroom was a spacious area. A very quiet, family friendly hotel. The bus service to the parks would have had a "charge" added. Fortunatly, we rented a car while we were in Orlando. We'd stay there again when we have the chance to visit Disney again.

We try to stay at Marriott properties as much as possible, because of their customer loyalty program. During our last visit, we tried the Fairfield Inn. This time, it was 4 nights at the Courtyard. On our next trip in May, we'll be checking out the SpringHill Suites.

All three hotels are located in the "Marriott Village," a gated complex that includes the hotels, parking areas, and a common food court / activity center. The village is located on Vineland, (Apopca, for old-timers), just off the I4. The Downtown Disney entrance to WDW property is just about 2 miles away. There is a Bahama Breeze and a Golden Coral restaurant within close walking distance.

The common area includes a Pizza Hut express, counters that serve hot dogs, grill items, deli sandwiches, coffee, frozen yogurt and bakery items, all located in a small convenience food mart. Across the walkway are a video arcade, and a Mears Transportation office. All three hotels share shuttle bus service, which can mean a longer wait during busy times, but the busses are pretty frequent.

The Courtyard has a very nice pool area, which includes a sloped entry outdoor shallow pool, and a covered lap pool. Water fountains and a water curtain look like fun for kids. There are outdoor and covered whirlpools, and a pretty shaded gazebo.

The hotel has a Hertz rental car counter on site, and the requisite Marriott time-share booth. There is a full-service restaurant for lunch and dinner. For breakfast, the restaurant offers a buffet, including an egg-and-omelet station, and made-to-order Mickey waffles. There is a decent selection of fruits, cereals, breakfast meats, and breakfast breads.

The rooms are typical bed, couch, chair, coffee table, desk, dresser, closet, TV, night tables, etc. Our room had a small patio, overlooking the pool area. The rooms have an ironing board and iron in them, which are nice no calling to the front desk to borrow one. They also have a coffee maker and fridge in every room. I believe all rooms have a Playstation, and some have WebTV service available. There is a business center on the lobby, where you can check e-mail and make copies, but the fees are pretty steep.

As our trip was during the typical Florida spring break season, we expected the hotel and village to be overrun with wild spring break crowds. We were fortunate despite a school group of 100+ teens, the hotel apparently put us on the no kids floor ABOVE all those running, stomping feet.

All in all, weve been very impressed with our two stays in the village, and were looking forward to trying the third hotel.
