"Walt Disney Dolphin"
Everything was awesome!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable and convenient family hotel"
The staff is very friendly and makes you feel like family. It was a great location to the WDW parks and is close to other Orlando attractions as well. There are many amenities to make you feel restful or keep you entertained. The room felt spacious and comfortable. The food and parking is rather pricey so bring lots of money. All in all, a great place […] for the family to vacation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Needs to improve parking"
We have stayed at this hotel many times. Everything was great except the Valet and Self Park. Both are a mess and disorganized. Our check in was great and the front desk was welcoming and helpful. Our room was clean and large enough that when they added a roll-a-way we still had plenty of room. Elevators are fast, large and convenient. The hotel is […] a little awkward in the set up and can be a little confusing. We love the service and food at Blue Zoo restaurant. Lobby Bar needs some work but staff is great. Valet Parking is absolutely a mess. Even when we called down to get our car it took a long time before we would get our car. Then when checking out they lost our keys and it took them well over 40 minutes to find them. The last time we used their valet the had to pay for damage to our car. I guess we do not learn but self parking is not set up well here either. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall, stay was OK. Upon entering room, it smelled like food. Upon opening refrigerator, someone had put a box of leftover food in there with a cup of something. Obviously, it was there for a while. It should have been checked by housekeeping before the room was reused. The room, upon entering, obviously had a strong smell of food. Room next door […] must have had a bathroom flood issue because a wet towel was placed on rug outside door in hall and the door was partially open the entire 3 nights we were there. A little unsightly. It was just a little less than what I expected of the Dolphin (which I have stayed in a number of times in the past). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. The staff fall all over themselves to help you. The only thing keeping this hotel 4 stars in place of 5 stars, (in my experience), is that the mattress in my room was several years past its prime. I was surprised that it wasn't replaced years ago.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walk to Epcot"
We had a beautiful room on the 17th floor. The room was large and very clean, comfortable beds and fresh, crisp linens. It was very quiet at night, although I believe that the hotel was not full and we had empty rooms on either side of us. Great view overlooking the Boardwalk and you could see the Epcot fireworks/light show from our windows. While the […] desk service was excellent, we did come back to our room tired and hot one afternoon at 3:30 or 4:00 and the cleaning staff was just arrived to our room. I told them to leave fresh towels and coffee and go. We were too hot and worn out to leave our room while they cleaned. There are several restaurants on the premises, but we did not eat in any of them since we ate at the Disney parks. We will definitely stay there again. Really convenient to the Disney parks and nightlife. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable and close to it all"
A wonderful family spot that has it all. Our teenage boys really enjoyed the pool, ammenities, close proximity to WDW parks, and eateries. My husband and I enjoyed all that as well as the security, gym, and friendly laid back atmosphere. The customer service was top notch. We were truly sad to leave. The only negative is you need to bring lots of extra […] money for food and parking. I thought the cost of food was excessive, however, no more so than what you would find throughout Disney.

"One of our favorites!"
They were deep cleaning the room just across the hall from us.The cleaner was very strong, and could've done without the 5 gallon cleaning buckets everywhere.There were room service trays left in the hallway for a good while,which I found strange for the Dolphin.It is still a great place and will stay there again,often.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall good deal. Watch out for hidden charges. Bathrooms very smallGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel for disney stay"
We had a great time staying at the Dolphin. The hotel was perfect for our family. My 3 year old loved the pools, and I loved that there was a kiddie pool perfect for her! The shuttles to and from the Disney parks were very convenient. The Dolphin was very reasonably priced and had great accommodations. We will definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Disney let me down : ("
The hotels resort is beautiful but if you are going to the parks don't plan on using the pool an such since it's open the same hours as the park. The room was small and dirty. The bathroom was probably the smallest I've ever been in for a hotel. It was quite the let downGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walking distance to Epcot and great dining"
We have stayed on Disney property many times, and the Dolphin was just as great as we hoped. You are walking distance to Epcot and the Boardwalk, and paces away from great restaurants. Shula's and Boardwalk's Kouzzina are among the best.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great time had by all. Will definitely go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good, but not up to standard"
A few things to be aware of. They charge you $15 to park yourself and they charge a resort fee of $19 to your room each night...for two bottles of water and wi-fi. The Dolphin was not up to Disney standard inside. Paint was chipping in elevators and hallways. Maintenance crews were blocking hallways. It is close to the Boardwalk, which has some good […] food. But if you want to head to Downtown Disney, be ready for a long bus ride (depending on traffic) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location to Epcot and Hollywood Studios"
Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Weekend getaway with my family. Never stayed here. We loved the Dolphin. I would defiantly stay there again. Loved it!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The best for Epcot and Hollywood!"
Close proximity to Epcot and Hollywood studios. Well kept grounds. The hotel looks nice inside. The room was nice. Blue Zoo in the hotel tastes fantastic!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel in the Heart of Disney World"
The Dolphin is a great hotel located near both EPCOT and the Disney Studios. The rooms are clean and noise is not a problem. The rooms are, however, fairly basic for a hotel of this magnitude. Perhaps my favorite part of my trip was dinner at the Blue Zoo restaurant. Both the food and the service was excellent. Although not for the budget minded, if […] you are going to EPCOT first class, this is the way to go! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great time at Food and Wine Fest"
Top quality. Service was impecable. The in-house bar scene was a lot of fun. If you haven't been, book it now! Walked to the EPCOT Food and Wine Fest. Great fun!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our stay at the Dolphin was awesome. Had some issues with our reservations but hotel straightened it out. We ate at Shula's Steakhouse and it was top shelf. The hotel was great. Pool was a bit cold but other than that it was worth every penny. Will definitely stay there from now on.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice place to stay close to Epcot"
We stayed in a double room with pool view. I was very pleased at how spacious the room was and the view from our room was nicer then I expected. Room was fairly clean and very comfortable. Only issue was with dining. We ate at one of the on site restaurants. The food was not very good. We went during the seafood buffet night and the crab legs and lobster […] were way over cooked and flavorless. Dessert and disney characters visiting our table were the redeeming factor. I would stay at the Dolphin Resort again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"extra charges for everything"
don't stay at Disney properties unless you don't mind being charged for resort fees, outrageous parking fees and even charges for bread and butter at dinner. The Television didn't work for 3 days and I was so frustrated that I left on the fourth day and stayed off property and had better comforts. Nothing good to say and I'm a Florida resident who won't […] be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place for adults"
We stayed 2 nights and had a great time. If you'd like to stay close to the parks and don't mind not being greeted by everything Disney every second of your stay this is the place for you. (Kids may not like it as much as adults) The price is right, transportation is provided to and from all the parks. Beds are comfortable, pool area is huge. We didn't […] eat at the hotel (no time!) so I can't vouch for the food. Would definitely stay at the Dolphin or Swan again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location but needs maintenance"
The location was great for the money. Although I don't expect the fanciest place for the rate, some regular maintenance things were needed. The AC drip pan was overflowing, making the carpet damp. The TV was flickering on every channel. When I told the staff about the TV they said they knew and it happens in every room. They also said they would send […] someone to fix the drip pan.

Awsome. Stayed here before. Gets better everytime. Love the pool and the closeness of the Boardewalk and Disney Parks. Excellent assortment of resturants. Perfect weekend get away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It's Disney. What more do you need to know?"
Yes, OK, it's actually run by Starwood, but the Disney touch is everywhere. Staff isn't staff, they're "cast members," just like throughout the rest of the park. And the "cast members" are perky, happy, helpful, and... well, Disneyesque. The hotel is gorgeous. It's a short stroll to Disney's Boardwalk, and a very easy walk to EPCOT (the back gate). […] Or you can ride a boat over. Busses are available to take you to other Disney parks, and all the transportation is free. The Swan, just a sidewalk away, features Kimono's, a wonderful sushi restaurant that is, every time I've gone, is inexplicably lacking a big crowd and lines out the door. It's a very fine sushi restaurant, and you can walk right in and take a seat. OK, you're at Disney, and although this is a bit of an upscale resort (solidly between the cheesy properties like Pop Century and the really elegant ones like Grand Floridian or Contemporary), there is a certain screaming-kid factor. But, hey, it's Disney. Enjoy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was very nice! :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Rooms are great in size but a bit dated & the bathroom cleanliness was not the best. It has a very convenient location so it makes it easy to walk over to Epcot & not have to deal with the park buses. That's the big plus for usGenuine Hotels.com guest review
In the hotel too cold. But very convenient location. Liked it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice hotel - but..."
It is avery nice hotel but I had a few complaints. First of all, beds are double beds-- too small to be comfortable. Parking was awful!! Both nights the self-parking was full. If I'm paying $15 a night to park there- I expect there to be a space. We were told to park at the Swan and walk over-- not acceptable in my opinion. And lastly, the hot tubs […] are awful-- very weak jets--they need to be updated or repaired. Beware of all the extra fees they charge - $15 parking, $17 resort fee, and $25 for a rollaway bed-- per day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"not very impressed"
It was a good trip overall they have nice pools, restaurants and bars. The BOARDWALK being onsite was the best part of this stay. The negative- Found an insect, a roach to be exact in the cabinet with the mini fridge. -_-That just killed my experience. I may consider staying there once more on the swan side of the property just to be fair.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved being so close to Epcot and Hollywood Studios! We could either walk or take the boat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Family overnight stay-walt disney dolphin resort"
Great location! Service was good and prompt but view could have been nicer. Concierge failed to advise us that buses go to different places and every bus does not go to parks. We wasted 1 hour until we asked... Poor customer service on part of hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little bit of heaven"
We stay at the Dolphin every time we go to Disney or Universal. There is no better hotel than the Dolphin for courteous and top-of-the line professionalism. From the front desk to the housekeeping staff the service is wonderful. We go so often that even the valets know us. It is so close to the Boardwalk and entry into Epcot without moving your vehicle. […] The fountain restaurant is great for lunch or that needed chocolate sundae. The Blue Zoo Restaurant by Todd English is wonderful also. I only wish I could live there, that is how much we love it. Can't wait to be there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"perfect hotel for all shapes and sizes"
We are 2 adults traveling with out kids. We breezed through check in- but we are SPG members so there was no line there. I wont go on and on because there isnt one complaint. Hotel gorgeous and clean. Well set up and spread out. Plenty of fast elevators.The room was spacious with a super comphy bed and pillows. Plenty of drawer space, mini fridge, closet […] with a safe and iron board. I liked the extra vanity outside the bath. Coffee station there and your ice set up. My husband did work the whole time sadly and the internet was fast. Plenty of light in the room. The hotel as everything you need a 24hr buffet/market///a ice cream fountain eatery/some great high end restaurants --so convenient to walk down the steps to such great food--but save up cause like all of Disney some place cost alot, but i feel the quality is worth it, just as in NYC and such The property is well maintained and huge pool area with a grotto and outdooor bar with snacks. An easy walk to the back door of Epcot--which we took advantage of and the Boardwalk is steps away. Remember if booking on a site you will get the $17 a day resort fee, why they just dont add it on is curious? This covers internet and bottled water and use of the the well appointed and clean gym. You will also have to pay $15 a day parking, and this is one of the only Disney hotels that does this--Also there is a very large laundry on the lower level on your way out to the pools. I saw a kids club and outdoor sports. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great proximity to Epcot & Hollywood Studios"
My husband and I really enjoyed this hotel. The pool area was fantastic - 3 different pools to choose from, including one with a large waterfall, grotto and slide. Lots of comfy lounge chairs and waiters to bring your favorite cocktails and food. There is also an awesome cabana bar and lounge plus a beach area. There are several restaurants to choose […] from inside the hotel, but we chose to eat at the Disney Boardwalk and Epcot, which are both within walking distance. If you can't walk too far, you can take the boat to the Boardwalk, Epcot and Hollywood Studios. It was very convenient. Our bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet and well appointed. We would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was okay but the price i thought i was paying was not right. They did not tell me i would need to pay a parking fee everytime i left the parking lot and also another fee for the pool and bottles of water even if you didnt use either. i will never go back.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Ok stay but they have room for improvement!"
The hotel was beautiful and beds were very comfortable. Glasses and tray from previous guest was left outside my assigned room for 24 hrs before someone pick them up. I have to request for more soap and shampoo they don't provide with much!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient location to Epcot and Hollywood Studios"
The hotel is conveniently located to Epcot Center and Hollywood Studios. We enjoyed the short boat ride to both locations.
