i have not stayed here but if you call marriott reservations they should be able to give you some info. In my experiences they have been pretty good.

They are all nice. Since you are familiar with the brands, you know what to expect from each. I like that you can use all the amenities of each hotel while you are staying there. They even have a mini-food court. There are a number of good restaurants are within walking distance as well. I cant speak for the transportation though.

Hope that helps.

We've stayed at the Fairfield Inn a few years ago. It was just like all other Fairfields. Clean. Free Breakfast. Decent pool.

Last year we stayed at the Spring Hill Suites in the Village. The rooms are larger and have a nice sitting area with chair and couch. It also has a wet bar with fridge and microwave. The breakfast was always crowded but plenty of food.

I would stay there again. You can use any of the pools in the village.

I'm not sure about the transportation since we had a car.

It is also close to the outlets and Publix market. Transportation is provided to the outlets. There is a bahama breeze in walking distance and a gas station across the street with a convinence store.

We were at the RI LBV a few days this week. Literature in the room stated the shuttle options...3 pick up times in the morning to take you to the parks, and 3 pick up times in the evening to bring you back. They drop you off/ pick you up at Epcot and say you can use Disney transportation from there. It also stated that the shuttle service was shared with other hotels and that you needed to make a reservation to use it.

It's been awhile since I've stayed at MV but recall a similar setup. Hth

It's my favorite of all the Marriotts in the area and we've stayed at them all, several times over. If you are there mid-week the serve a light dinner and free wine and beer (6-7:30 pm, T-W-Th). Staff is great too. Rooms very clean. Best breakfast of all the others. Have fun!

P? I also like this hotel because it is very, very quiet. I never hear noise from guests in other rooms.

We stayed at the Residence Inn Lake Buena Vista on points in a family suite, and it was GREAT! They have Mickey waffles for breakfast too!(free). They do offer transportation, but like all of them, they only take you to Epcot, then you have to use WDW Transportation to get wherever you want. The earliest bus was at 8:15 I want to say. It's very close to stores, restaurants and DTD.
