Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RoyUK Looking forward to next trip!!
Having just returned from yet another rip to Florida and again staying at this hotel, we have not been disappointed.
The facilities that are provided, and, those that are near by are excellent, and the hotel staff are constantly trying to ensure your stay is an enjoyable one.
It as always starts with the first impression which is provided with the car valet's Ernie, Alex and Paul.
Followed by the check in staff of which Spencer, Nichole and Adriana stand out.
The bartender Fouad, provides an excellent service in the art of relaxing after a hard days work in the theme parks!!
The hotel is well maintained, clean and a 'home away from home'
which is why some many guests return.
The new management team have added a few extra's such as movies projected on to the wall to keep the small ones entertained whilst dining in the evening.
There is plenty to do just around the hotel, with Market Place a five minute walk away, and numerous restaurants in the opposite direction

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FinnGirl Beds were great, location too
Room was nice, need new floors. Beds were great. Air conditioning blows too hard, straight to another bed. We turn air conditioner warmer and low, but still it felt too cold.
Location to theme parks is good, Down Town Disney is like 400 meters. Shuttle to Disney works great. Universal Studios needs to take taxi, but it costs only 25 dollars (+ tip).
Breakfast was eatable, not any fancy. But waitress were kind.

The service and friendliness of this hotel was very impressive. You would expect a large hotel like this not to know or care so much about people. But they do! Thanks for the best hospitality!! First class.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PJOKC Quiet and cared-for stay
I had a full 4-day conference at the hotel. It was enjoyable to see the sunrises from the 11th floor. Housekeeping kept me well stocked with coffee each day (I'm an early riser and like my cups of coffee#. Due to the tight schedule, arrangements were made to offer a lunch buffet. The staff handled our beverages promptly and bread served with the sandwich buffetd was as fresh and moist as you could get. Being a member of the IHG Rewards Club provided extra bonuses, the little extra really made me feel welcomed and appreciated. The room was fairly small, but sufficient. I slept well in the comfortable bed. When I first arrived, I checked out the exercise equipment #was concerned that the treadmills would be busy), but I never had to wait for a treadmill to be available. I enjoyed my stay.

My husband and I stayed here before but made the return trip for our 34th anniversary. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and accommodating! The young lady at front desk, had the chef prepare and send up chocolate dipped strawberries and wine as a surprise for our anniversary! It's little touches like this that makes a hotel a winner in my book!!
The view of Downtown Disney was awesome and the fact that we could see the fireworks from other Disney properties was a huge bonus!
The only downside I found was that I thought the pool felt a bit too cool for my liking but it was a minor thing.
Rooms were always serviced and clean. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed here on a recent trip to visit Epcot for the Wine & Food Festival. We were greeted by the excellent front desk staff. We were quickly registered and even upgraded. Our room was well equipped, very clean, quiet. After a day in the part, we enjoyed wine at the bar and the beautiful pool/sauna area was very welcomed after a day walking the parks. We were frequently asked how we were enjoying our stay and any request we had was quickly fulfilled with a smile. To our surprise, we were able to enjoy fireworks from 2 Disney parks on our own balcony. The bedding was so comfortable, affording a great nights sleep. I would not hesitate to return to this hotel or recommend to anyone. Special commendation to Darrell, Spencer and Connie at the front desk. They are certainly the greatest people to respresent you at the welcoming entrance to your hotel.

Staff was super friendly, helpful, pleasant. No matter what staff we interacted with (restaurant, front desk, housekeeping...), all we're wonderful. We also loved the breakfast!! If we come back to Orlando, this is where we'll stay. Thank you for making our vacation so terrific! Oh, one more thing, kids loved the pool. It was huge!

Didnt know where to stay for our trip to disney, found this hotel from the reviews online, and it was a good if not better then what the reviews were. Great location to walk to Down Town Disney, very clean and nice pool. We had a room that faced the highway side, thought it would be an issue with noise and it wasnt. The only noise that woke me up was from the open courtyard people dinning in the morning and the wait staff clearing plates. If came back wouldnt think twice about booking here.

This reasonably priced hotel is a gem located in the middle of a hotel row. Nice to park your car safely then ride the bus to the Disney parks...then home to the comfort of the HI. This hotel must have recently been refurbished. Pleasant staff. We'll be back!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by edzie unexpected parking fee
My husband and I stayed at the Buena Vista Holiday Inn about 2 weeks ago. Everything was fine and it is a beautiful hotel. Upon checking out however, I was shocked to discover a $10.00 per day parking fee on our bill. No one mentioned this fee when we checked in, in fact, the employee that had us sign the parking pass receipt did not mention the fee, he was in a hurry and just said sign here. I have been coming to Walt Disney World since 1974 and have never paid a parking fee at a hotel. The girl at the check out informed us that the hotel did not charge a resort fee, they charge a parking fee instead. I really do not know if this is the norm now. The parking fee was also never mentioned in the AAA booklet. Needless to say, I find it hard to believe that all hotels in the hotel plaza blvd. area now charge parking fees. I have stayed at others in the past with no fee. Beware.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 good place for a conference
I stayed here for a conference and it was nice. within walking distance to down town Disney. the also had a bus but when I was there the weather was cool so the walk was a nice way to stretch my legs after sitting in meetings.
staff was nice and the food for our conference meals was presented very nicely and was good also.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyBunny13 Wonderful Holiday
Having read all the good reviews before staying I was concerned that the hotel would not live up to our expectations but from the first moment we drove into the car park and went up to reception to the moment we left nothing was too much trouble, everybody was very helpful and extremely friendly. The maid service was excellent. More British tour companies should add this " little gem" to their offering.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by carlosfsm Great Customer Service
We were here for 5 days for a conference followed by some fun in the Disney Parks. The staff treated us very well from the front desk to the Palm Breezes. Drevis and his banquet staff were amazing. They treated my little girl like a princess. They made every effort to make all conference attendees comfortable and happy. The meals and snacks were presented beautifully and made the long hours in conference a little more tolerable. Our room was on the second floor facing the pool, so the music from the pool could be heard late into the night which made it hard to fall asleep. There were dishes left in the hallway for about 3 days before they were picked up. Overall, the staff made up for that.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Waltgolf Very enjoyable experience after a long trek
Bed very good. Comfortable furniture in the room. Pleasant view over the pool. Staff at desk was very pleasant and helpful.
Although there was a convention or workshop of young folks at the hotel, their presence was not a distraction at all.
Only negative was the meal. Ordered top of the menu steak for $25. Service was slow. The meal did not include a salad or bread dish. Steak was ok but nothing to write home about. Looked like the $9.99 pasta bar would have been a better choice.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and while it was nice ~ there was nothing outstanding. Maid service was OK ~ I left a $5 tip each day and asked for additional coffee, the sencond morning ~ the tip was gone and NO coffee. There was not a problem getting the coffee from the front desk ~ but it was just time consuming....
Roms were fine and appeared to be clean ~ tub drainged slow, shower had very LOW pressure and was hard to adjust.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ltm54 Excellent conference experience
From the time we pulled into the driveway until we departed, I cannot emphasize how wonderful this hotel and it's staff were. The hotel is very clean, well organized, the room was spotless. We even had room service twice a day. While my husband relaxed at the nearby attractions, I attended a conference on-site and can not brag enough on the professional attention to the set-up of the room, food service, and other amenities. Everyone had a smile and went out of their way to assist.
The transportation to the nearby theme parks was very reliable and we could even purchase tickets in the hotel. We will definitely consider another visit.

The staff here is exceptional! The bell staff is super friendly and extremely accommodating. Paul and Ernie always made sure to greet me by name and ask how everyone was doing. The front desk staff is always smiling....and trust me I witnessed a guest behaving poorly to the staff and they handles it with grace. I would definitely recommend the hotel to others not for the hotel but for the exceptional staff. These employees deal with a wide array of people and personalities and handle with professionalism, grace and dignity! Job well done and kudos to this staff! They are the reason I would return and stay here!

I was recently at the Holiday Inn Lake Buena Vista for a work conference, and was pleasantly surprised at how clean,comfortable, and accomodating everything and everyone was. The hotel looks like it was updated recently and it is a very relaxing and comfortable atmosphere for both work related and leisure related stays. It is conviniently located, right down the road from Downtown Disney and within 10 minutes drive from all the Disney parks. I would recommend this hotel for buisness travelers and families alike.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DandG64 NOTHING TOO MUCH TROUBLE
This is our 3rd stay at the Holiday Inn, Lake Buena Vista, near Downtown Disney. The staff are welcoming, courteous and helpful as previously experienced before.
This hotel has a great pool and our room was one that looked over the pool and we were also able to view Downtown Disney area from the balcony and view the theme park fireworks which was great.
The buses to the Disney Parks were on time and the drivers were very courteous which was a pleasure.
The great thing about this hotel is its location where you can walk to different restaurants without have to drive anywhere and so can enjoy a few drinks. We ate in the hotel only a few times but what we did eat was good.
We will definitely be going back!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mcham338 A little disatisfied
The room and the staff are great. I booked the room and breakfast combo, I booked this hotel because of it's transport to the Disney Parks. BAD choice the first and only day we took the bus to the park we waited more than the time stated, to get on the bus and then a lot more than the time stated to get back to the hotel. It took over 50 minutes to get back to the hotel which ran into my dinner reservations, which of course we lost. Which resulted in a $60.00 charge to my credit card. ( Cape Mays at the Harbour Hotel). The breakfast at the hotel is less than average, the hotel states it's free, Sure it's free if you take the buffet which is sub standard. The shower in the room is water saver to the extreme, don't they realize it just takes twice as long to take a shower. I resulted to fill the tub, that means they didn't save any water. Next time I will not book this Hotel it cost me more than staying at a Disney resort.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by flyry73 Small rooms and dirty pool
The rooms are small, the pool was dirty, and we lost power one day. My family and I stayed for 9 nights and the sheets on the beds never got changed. One day they did not even make the beds. The hotel advertised they are across the street from Down Town Disney and they are more like down the street from Down Town Disney.
