Buena Vista Suite

I'm looking into BVS for a quick stay this December...

Just a long weekend Saturday night until Tuesday night. Looking for some feedback, the good, the bad, the different. TIA!

I love Buena Vista Suites!! Stayed there about a month ago and loved it. Wonderful free breakfast buffet, the rooms are large and very nice. beds are comfy. room service is quick and the food is great.

Here is a link with all of the info. if you have any questions, please let me know.

BV Suites

From a former Jersey girl to another....! We were in Orlando last week and stayed at BV Suites for 2 nights and really liked it. Beds were comfy, room was clean, staff was friendly and the FREE breakfast buffet had a lot of choices, some healthy such as cereals, fruit, yogurt, and oatmeal.

We didn't use the pool or the workout room, we spent all our time at the parks. Oh yeah, another great thing BV Suites has is FREE transportation to and from the parks! Just look at the times though because we went to see Fantasmic (the show at Hollywood Studios) and got out of there at 9pm. The last bus Mears bus (the free one) to BV Suites left Hollywood Studios at 7:30pm so we had to take a taxi back to the hotel.

I would really recommend this hotel for all the freebies and nice staff. Just stay away from the guy at the booth in the lobby trying to sell you tickets and other things to the parks. It's more expensive than the deals you can get out there. We got our park tickets through Undercover Tourist.com via Mouse savers.com. Tickets are cheaper thru them....we saved $60 on a 5 day, one park a day tickets.

We are having post-vacation blues!!! Have a great trip!

Thanks!... I'm an AP holder so I don't need tickets, but thanks for the recommendation! I am also having post-vacation blues! (I was there a few weeks ago)

BV Suites

One more thing I forgot about BV Suites....try not to use the phone for local calls or else they will charge you 86 cents per minute! I almost called the pizza place across the street for them to deliver a pizza to the hotel and thought I better ask if there was a charge for local calls. I'm glad I did! The girl at the front desk said I could come down to the lobby and she would make the call for me, as in for free.

I'm from Chatham and went to Kean College for a year! Small world! I love and miss New Jersey! We're going to Chatham for Christmas and we're taking our girls to the Radio City Christmas show and I can't wait for them to see it!
