Fodor's Review

A pair of 56-foot-tall sea creatures bookends this 25-story glass pyramid, a luxe resort designed, like the adjoining Swan, by world-renowned architect Michael Graves, and close enough to the parks that you can escape the midday heat for a dip in the pool. Both hotels underwent a complete face-lift in all rooms and public areas in 2015. All rooms have either two queen beds or one king, with pillow-top mattresses, down comforters with crisp white duvet covers, and overstuffed pillows. Rooms have flat-panel TVs with an interactive resort information system, along with views of Epcot, Disney's BoardWalk, or Hollywood Studios. The pool's cave and waterfall are so inviting that the kids will happily leave the parks for a relaxing cool-down.

Disney's best Hotel in Orlando, Florida

I really love Dolphin hotel. Best special rates for $169.00. I can't wait to stay in the Dolphin. I give this hotel a Excellent mark. Disney keep the nice work.

One Shot Convention Hotel

The public areas are generally nice, but the hallways are vaguely claustrophobic. The room layout was interesting, but not bad. The room furnishings are what is expected at this price point in this locale. Thankfully, there are good restaurants here, because the room service food quality is atrocious at this price point. I have stayed in hotels ranging from $35 per night to over $350 per night. I have never encountered such a high percentage

of uncaring and miserable staff people in one hotel. I guess that they assume most people are here on conventions and won't be back. The staff certainly does whatever they can to ensure no returns.
