Poly vs. GF- Please help us decide!

I know it's been asked many times and it really is a matter of personal preference, but we can't decide where to stay!
Last May we stayed at the Poly with our 1 & 3yr olds. It was the best vacation ever and we loved the resort. My only "complaints" about the Poly were the worn, dated rooms. It was clean and spacious so I wouldn't let that stop me from staying there again, but it was definitely something we noticed. I also didn't love that we had a short walk to the lobby if we wanted coffee or snack but that would be the case at the GF too (can't afford main building).
The pool area was also just okay, in my opinion. It was crowded and there were never enough chairs.
We did visit the GF and when we first walked in we just felt the calm and serenity that you don't experience anywhere else in Disney. There was a sense of class and elegance that the poly doesn't have. We said we'd definitely stay here next time. We even loved the pools and grounds. All that being said, after our vacation was over we realized there is a certain energy and disney-vibe at the poly that you just don't get at GF. We also love the food options at Poly.
So... Now we're hoping to go back this May. GF is a little more money, but we're willing to splurge if it's worth it.
I'm hoping to hear feedback from anyone who has stayed at both resorts. How did the rooms compare? What about the overall experience? Do you think it's worth the extra $ to stay at GF? TIA!
