Buena Vista Suites or Embassy Suites Orlando

I have already booked Buena Vista Suites at an excellent price for our Feb trip, however, I can get Embassy Suites Orlando for about $10 more. Both get excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and on this board, however people really seem to love Embassy Suites! I know that in addition to the cooked-to-order breakfast there is also a nightly manager's reception, but otherwise the two properties seem comparable. Are there resort fees, parking or internet fees at either property I should be aware of?

Could anyone who has stayed at both of these properties give me an opinion on which property you preferred? Actually, I would love opinions from anyone who has stayed at either. I just want to know if I should spend the extra and change my reservation or if they are basically the same level of accomodation.

I haven't stayed at Buena Vista but have at Embassy Suites. I have to preface by saying that Embassy Suites is one of my favorite hotels for my family. They have a managers reception in the early evening where you can get free alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, and snacks (popcorn, chips, etc). The free breakfast is great (made to order omelets) and this one closest to Disney has a indoor/outdoor pool and shows movies by the pool at night. There are no parking/resort or internet fees. We love it!

Thank you! I've been reading Trip Advisor reviews and someone mentioned a $12 per day internet fee but the booking engine I am using didn't mention any fees so I wanted to double check.

*** There is a special rate that does have internet included = already ***

But this is the standard ...

Wireless Internet Access, complimentary in lobby kiosks, available in guestrooms for a fee <===

^^ according to the Embassy Suites Hotel Lake Buena Vista website ^^

***which is a misprint and therefore deceiving ... it should say ...

Wireless Internet Access available in guestrooms for a fee, complimentary in lobby kiosks ***

I am a big fan of Embassy Suites throughout the USA ...

and this is what I have experience numerous times (pay for internet)

or use the PC in the Business Center

and will do so in the future

if I want free internet and breakfast then I stay @ Hampton Inns (Hilton)

*please excuse me if I miss the point*
