Very convenient and in close proximity to WDW.Posted May 24, 2017
Parking lot was under construction and some conventions were going on the week of my stay, May 15-22, 2017. This made it very difficult to find a parking spot. Only options were valet parking or to park at the neighboring Swan. Even then it cost $20 dollars for the night even though the parking lot was a 10 minute walk away.

On the 3rd day of our stay they moved our stuff without informing us. They packed our stuff and some items were missing. I just dont understand what kind of hotel does that, how could they touch our stuff. Very very disappointed, never going to stay in this hotel again. Thought its a disney hotel and would be conveninet to go to disney world parks that why we booked it.

Nice hotelPosted May 24, 2017
Very nice location and close to the theme park. The water park inside the hotel is wonderful. But the people that cleaning the room was not very careful. They kept forgot replace the towel and I have to call the service to bring clean towel to my room.

Stay at DolphinPosted May 21, 2017
The bell boys at the parking are not very friendly. My husband said he will self park but he didn't let us unload our luggage or borrow the luggage stand because they can only do vallet. I had to go inside and check with ththe manager to confirm the self parking and they finally let us do it. It is clearly written on the hotel website is you can do self park or valley. I went to celebrate my sons fifth birthday with our 1 year old. My 1 year drinks whole milk warm and it needs to be warmed using microwave. The only microwave they have is about a mile walk from my room in some restaurant downstairs. Neither did they bothered to give is room closer so that we don't have to walk 3 times a day for that mile. The hotel is undergoing some kind of renovations and the bus services to the parks are not available from th dolphin resort which means you have to walk all the way to the other resort in front of it to get the bus. This even means returning back at midnight with your kids. You try to book a room in Disney resorts for your comfort. This trip was more than tiring to us just because of the improper facilities at this hotel. The location of the hotel otherwise is great but overall I was not very satisfied with my stay.

Great hotel close to Disney parksPosted May 21, 2017
Pros: As hotel situated on lagoon by Epcot and Hollywood Studio, it was very easy to go to the parks and return to the hotel for mid afternoon breaks.
Location: Close to Disney Boardwalk and Yacht and Beach Club resort with walkway paths to both. Boats on the lagoon also take you to Epcot and Hollywood Studios
Hotel had spacious rooms,very friendly and accommodating staff, good variety of restaurants and beautiful grounds. Hotel lobby presently undergoing renovation

Walk to EpcotPosted May 16, 2017
Stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms. Excellent. Note the main lobby is currently undergoing work on the fountain so not its usual welcoming sight.

Sheraton Hotel at DisneyPosted May 13, 2017
Pros: Just about everything
Cons: I didn't observe anything to improve.
Location: Easy access to the Boardwalk and Epcot
After seeing some postings about the hotel on various websites, I had some trepidations about staying there. For SPG we usually stay at Westin facilities. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the lodgings. I knew the room would be small, but the cleanliness, furnishings, bed comfort and quality was terrific.

Badly in need of updating - no comparison to SwanPosted May 9, 2017
What a nightmare this experience was. Our room looked like it hadn't been renovated since about 1970. We paid for a King which I would expect to be decent quality - nope! Room layout was horrible - shaped like a U and the tv was not in front of the bed so no way to watch it from bed. Room smelled, as my husband put it, "like my grandma's house" - deep mold/mildew odor. Furniture was extremely dated. Ceiling was extremely low. Bathroom sink was clogged. Between the room layout, the low ceilings and the horrible view, this room felt like a dungeon. We went to the front desk and spoke with the manager, Leah, who condescendingly said that because we booked through Expedia instead of Disney there was nothing she could do. She repeatedly stated that both the Dolphin and the Swan were at 100% capacity all weekend and there were literally no rooms we could move to. I went back to the room, called Expedia and explained the situation. The representative was extremely courteous and offered to call the Dolphin for me. Less than 5 minutes later Leah called me back and magically had multiple renovated rooms available that she could move us into. However, she moved us into a double room, claiming that was "equal" to the King that we had paid for. I find that totally unacceptable. In addition, even the newly renovated room had issues - beds were uncomfortable, toilet dirty, ceiling paint peeling, shower drain stopper broken, bathroom sink didn't drain well. Will never stay here again.
