Or does it turn out a hotel is just a place to sleep? We've been looking at all the cool resorts outside of Disney (and there are some bargains out there!), but we're thinking of just staying at a chain hotel (in a family suite at the Fairfield Inn Buena Vista Lakes) instead. Here's why: 1. Whenever we travel we stay at a Fairfield Inn because they are the same wherever we go...we know what to expect. 2. Their beds are SO comfortable. 3. They are always clean. 4. The service is consistently good. 5. They offer a free breakfast. 6. The family suite offers the kids thier own space, beds, and t.v. 7. We're going to be running around all day...really the room is just to sleep. 8. Even though we're planning on fixing some food to take with us to the parks, I can't imagine I would turn on a stove or oven (I'm on vacation!). The small fridge and microwave seem plenty. 9. Maid service is included. 10. Internet it included. 11. Three pools, but nothing fancy. (But we have 2-3 days of water parks planned) 12. They have a small food court with a pizza hut, etc. 13. About $75 a night. Am I REALLY depriving my family (Two adults/Two 9 year-olds) of something special if we don't don't stay at a 2BR/2BA condo with a water park, etc? For a little more money we could get a condo, but I'm thinking KNOWING something will be comfortable/clean is better than taking a chance on someplace I've never been. I do want to give my family a memorable experience. Opinions, please!
