Spacious, comfortable room, would appreciate more outlets near the desk for those who attend a conference at the hotel and need to work. I value a quiet night's sleep and hot shower in the morning. The noise outside the room and absence of hot water detracted from my first 2 days. Each issue required 2 calls to hotel staff. Fortunately... More

Hotel is a Sheraton SPG preferred facility located on Disney property. Easy access by walking or free water ferry to Epcot and Disney's boardwalk entertainment area. There are complimentary shuttle buses to all other Disney parks. The hotel is clean, decor is excellent. There is a magnificent pool and playground area. Several good restaurants on site, including Shula's Steakhouse. This... More

I made my reservation at this hotel for an extra night so that when I got to the hotel I wouldn't have to wait for them to prep a room. I have been traveling all day with a 15 month old - you can guess why I have been in lobby for 2.5 hours because the rooms I reserved didn't... More

I'll follow this up - off to a bad start but a better ending. Toilet bowl wasn't clean and had pee stains. The rest of the room was good. They brought housekeeping and they cleaned it well. On another note, my son got a bad cut because he fell and we didn't have access to the gift shop because it... More

This hotel is updated and looks very nice on the outside. To say the least it was very comfortable. I would stay here again. However, for next night of my stay things changed. As I go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. I look at the mirror and I see something large and black moving. I focus... More

Contrary to other reviewers, we found the staff plentiful and very pleasant and helpful. Our room was pleasant, without being anything special. The location is good, and the proximity to the Boardwalk and lots of restaurants is a plus, as well as the bus and lake boat if you want to hit the parks. The cons for us were the... More

Stayed at the Swan for a long weekend in November......and what a treat! Several swimming pools, lovely room and transport back and forth to Disney with no problems! The only complaint was the lack of restaurants or anything reasonably-priced for that matter. The boat rides to the boardwalk were terrific as was the resort in general. Looking forward to returning.

We have stayed at the Swan many times now but this year was the best. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. The property is clean and very handy to everything Disney. The boat service to Epcot and Hollywood Studios is very convenient. We had some great Guest Service Coordinators ( Alex, Amethyst and Nicole) who really went out... More
