Tower CR, Garden GF, or CL WL

I am trying to plan next summer's trip. I had pretty well settled on CL WL, having just experience my first CL at Boardwalk. Loved CL and the Boardwalk. We discovered though that we really are MK people and prefer the MK resort area. (My husband must have a break during the day for health reasons, particularly in summer).

I have stayed at the WL before and did not like the bus transporation. My sons loved it, so I thought I would try it again. Then, I saw the thread earlier today about wait times to the parks and remembered why I didnt like this resort. Also, I like to sit out on the balcony and the description of the CL balconies being enclosed is giving me pause.

I have stayed at the Tower CR and loved that, too. However, my sons were too young to care about the pool, and it is a plain pool. I would also be giving up CL.

Never stayed at GF. I am taking my two nieces, also, so it's not like I am dragging boys to a fancy hotel. I also hear the pool is nice. Again, no CL.

I am not willing to go to the Poly again during construction (which is where DH wanted until he heard about the construction).

So, kids votes are one for WL and one for BC (which I nixed for because of its proximity to MK). DH doesn't care, but wants to get back to the hotel easily and rest.

Price is about the same for these three rooms. Which would you choose and why?

Hubby needs trumps all else.

Why the quiz? DH health needs trumps all other druthers. CR is an 8 min slow walk from the MK. SAY NO MORE!
OK just one more thing. CR is the first stop on the resort monorail after boarding at the MK station. OK just one more thing NO REALLY. Do a split stay and let the kids enjoy a few days at WL.

I agree with the pp that the CR would be the best choice for getting back to the resort from MK if quick transportation is a priority; however, I think WL CL would be a good choice for breaks and would provide a place for your DH to relax. With that said, my choice would be WL for the CL lounge, the nice pool, and the convenience of the boat for getting to MK. Good luck deciding, although they are all great choices and I don't think you can go wrong with any of them.
