The walk boat to hotel is uncovered & longer but it’s faster to your room once inside. I hate walking extra in general but even I really didn’t find it to be that much. Do you have Marriott status? At SR Platinum & higher get the free continental breakfast delivered so that’s a time saver I love. SR has a pool but no hot tub so if you want a hot tub you have to walk to Swolphin. Do you have an ECV? SR Bell Services holds all ECVs, and charges them for you, to prevent people from parking in the hallways- our ECV user loved that as you walk right by Bell Services when entering the building.Speaking from a pure-room perspective (not factoring in amenities, park distance, dining, etc.) - if offered similar prices, would you advise going for the SR vs S/D? I'd imagine the new rooms would be the selling point but I've stayed at S/D for 20+ years so it's tough for that change. I've never stayed at SR.
I would try it once since you’re a repeat visitor. If you don’t care for it you’ll know going forward, if you like it now you have another hotel option!
