We were in 1313, Tower One, 3rd floor. (Lobby level) We never heard noise from the elevators or whatnot, everything was absolutely perfect. I can say with 100% certainty that we will visit this hotel again.

We were SO IMPRESSED with the pool area. It may sound silly, but the fact that they offered complimentary water stations, sunscreen, pool noodles and beach balls completely blew me away. It's just way more than we've ever gotten at at WDW resort pool. And the staff that runs the afternoon pool games daily from 12pm-6pm is fantastic. Prizes are ice cream, smoothies, and for the adults, cocktails! We were blown away by the RPH, I wish we were there right now!

Does the hotel charge a fee if you used the Keurig, Fiji water, etc. on the sideboard with the tv? Or is it all complimentary and replaced each day? Thanks!!

YES!!! Some of the games were for the kids only, but a lot of them allowed adults to play for cocktails as well!

The Keurig and the K-cups were complimentary. Don't touch that FIJI water though, it was $7 per bottle! The left hand sideboard with the water and the cookies and nuts was all charge items. My daughter made a beeline for the water and cookies when we first walked in and I literally shouted, "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

Yeah, it's like the candy stand at the check - out in the grocery store! Not fair for kids.

Beautiful pictures!

I am declining the key for the fridges in the 5 rooms and will request all items that cost anything are removed from the room !! $7 a bottle is ridiculous !!!

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

I sure wish they would replace that fridge with the pricey items with a usable fridge. always amazed me that for the price they charge,there is no mini fridge, at least.

(whilel I'm at it, balconies would be nice, too)

When I last stayed at nice hotels....... I asked them to empty the fridge so I could use it.

Tacky? I guess I don't care. Anybody tried that?

They charge to empty it - anywhere from $25-$35. I have seen many tripadvisor posts on the subject.

You can rent a fridge for a fee or get a Styrofoam cooler (that's what we always do) and keep it filled with ice.
