Cons:For some reason roomservice came knocking on the door at 8:30 when check out time was 11am. Also I called down to the front desk to ask a question and the lady was very rude to me. The o oh good experience Inhad was the gentleman who checked us in, he was nice and very courteous. For a four star hotel I would have expected more.

10.0 Excellent
Pros:Looking for a clean hotel with a Starbucks, tastey cookies, onsite ticket options for Universal and Disney, free shuttle to Universal and cheaper option than Disney Parking (uber is cheaper). Comfortable beds, nice views, couldn't have asked for a better vacation!
Cons:Had no problems, but $16.00 per person for a shuttle to Disney is extremely high. Parking at Disney is only 22.00 total.

Pros:Overall my visit was very enjoyable. However my first night I was greeted with the information that valet was $23 and self parking was $19 per night. This price seemed a little high for me.
