Editorial review:

This is a great place to get away from the kid stuff of Disney, but it's a nice family-friendly hotel that is close to all of the parks. The location is great, there are restaurants for every taste, and the rooms are contemporary and have incredible beds. Some thought that it's depressing or tacky, but it's still loved by many.
