Lavish Luxury, Disney Style

elliottp297 (Skokie, Illinois) on Jun 19, 2021

One look and it’s obvious: this property is the architectural envy of all Orlando. The stunning, sweeping vantage points of the Swan and Dolphin’s grandiose exteriors, surrounded by water and palm trees, awash in lush tropical vegetation and neon lights—it’s enough to take one’s breath away. Is this resort as good on the inside as it appears on the outside? Almost. Let’s dive in. The service here is accommodating and helpful. While rooms are only cleaned once every three to four days during the era of COVID, staff members always seemed happy to provide any room services my family needed without a hitch. We needed them since the air conditioning needed fixing our first night, and the cable—despite the engineer’s best efforts to fix it—never worked properly during the duration of our stay. The rooms are modern and clean with large, comfy beds (which are a bit on the firm side, but still quite nice). The restroom features a luxurious shower setup, but cheap and flimsy toilet paper. The view from my guest room window was gorgeous, with Hollywood Studios’s Tower of Terror right in my line of sight. The hotel is usually quiet at night, with instance of loud guest neighbors being the exception, not the rule. The pool area here is vast, well-cleaned, heated, and generally top-notch. I counted three hot tubs, though I was told there was a fourth (and perhaps a fifth) on the other side of the recreational space. (Really, it was that huge!) It features a water slide, a playground, poolside games such as giant connect four, drink and food service, and a no-swimming beach for relaxation. This was a perfect spot for me to unwind after a long, tiring day exploring the theme parks. The Swan and Dolphin share their wealth of restaurants to satisfy every possible taste and pallet. The Java cafe in the Swan has wonderful grab-and-go offerings such as Mickey waffles and overnight oats. My favorite dining experiences, however, took place over chocolate chip pancakes at the Swan’s beautifully designed Garden Grove Cafe as well as peanut butter ice cream at the Dolphin’s more raucous and crowded Fountain ice cream shop. This hotel is reserved at a slightly higher price point than the Dolphin—even as the less architecturally grand of the two—and boasts a more quiet, businesslike atmosphere than its neighbor. While subtlety is the strength of neither resort, the Swan prioritizes tasteful elegance while the Dolphin’s star-struck lobby and giant fountains are every bit as visually impressive as Epcot’s Spaceship Earth. The Swan offers transportation via boat and shuttle bus to all the parks and Disney Springs (though the latter’s shuttle comes far too infrequently). As a Westin Marriott property, be warned that it offers no airport shuttle like other Disney property hotels. Furthermore, be prepared for shockingly high resort fees after your stay. Overall, in a city with hundreds of great lodging options, the Swan is a very good choice. The wow factor here is basically unmatched. The property is easily visible from nearby parks and from the sky as flights from MCO fly over the Lake Buena Vista area. This is lavish luxury at a price, done only as Disney (and Marriott) can do.

Good experience

ReachMoon (Fairfax County, Virginia) on Jun 19, 2021

We are here 4 nights in June. Overall good experience. As Marriott platinum member, we were upgraded to resort view room.. A 20 food credit each day. They put lots of bottle waters in our room. The room is not big but you will be in Disney park all day so doesn’t matter. They only clean your room every 4 days but the respond to requests for changing towels, cleaning trash, requesting coffee supplies are very quick. The Japanese restaurant Kimono on site is very good. We choose to get take out due to pandemic, they even put the udon and gyoza in the heating oven to keep the temperature before we arrive to pick up the food. The resort also have bug pool and lake. The boat to Epcot and Hollywood studio are very convenient. Especially after a long walk during the day.
