I think this is so great of you to do for people...allow them to use your discount voucher! Wish the world had more people like you in it! Again, thanks so much!!
They aren't done yet and it doesn't look like they will be for some time but I have no idea as to when they will complete everything - it looks like it will be more than a year. It appears to be a huge project so I am not sure when they will be relaunched officially. It appears that the hotel will be 100% improved when they are done though. That isn't a bad thing.

can you tell me which one this is? what street is it on, and do you know if they charge for parking? thanks
This one is in Lake Buena Vista close to the Sunspree. I believe it is Polynesian Isle Boulevard. I can't remember if they had a resort fee, but if I remember correctly, they don't. But, the parking was free from what I remember.

I think I will be - if not (and the job offer would have to be really, really, really good to leave IHG), I will be sure to post another IHG employees code, and keep updating the info. Regardless, it will always be a link in my signature.

Incredible!

I can't believe the deals through this link - thanks so much! We're booking a surprise trip for my kiddos for their birthday (happen to share the same one), and this just made it so much easier. Yay!!!!!!

I am glad that so many of you are finding a benefit with this discount. I hope this allows more people to visit their families during the holidays or other special events. Enjoy your visit with your kids in college!

Depends on what you consider the criteria for the nicest would be. All the hotels I have personally stayed at WDW in have been nice. The key is making sure if you stay at a Holiday Inn or Express that you are choosing hotels with the new logo. Anyone who doesn't relaunch will be out of the system soon so that will make things easier. There are different things that make properties nice. I liked the Holiday Inn DTD for how close it was to DTD, and buses. The decor is very cool and the rooms are comfortable and it is more full-service but you have to pay for all your food. I liked the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Lake Buena Vista mentioned earlier in the thread because the rooms were comfortable, the staff was friendly and free breakfast was a plus. I haven't had a bad experience yet at any of the hotels I have decided to stay at regardless of if at WDW or Disneyland. I haven't had a chance to check out all the properties yet but I liked both of my choices.
