Very pleasant and convinient place especialy for children. Rooms are clean and recently renovated. Location of hotel near to Disney theme parka in walking distance is very helpful for those who are traveling with small children. Food was avaerage but nearby at Disney Boardwalk there are some excellent restaurants.

Next to the boardwalk where you have some good street performers performing in the evening. Your evenings would be great. Walkable distance to Epcot. Convenient bus service to all parks. Late night cafeteria Picabu is good value for money.

The rooms are not great, actually average or a little below average. The rooms are dated, I was not impressed. The resort itself was beautiful with plenty of options for entertainment, dining and pool time. I would not stay here, sorry Disney🙁

Based on the reviews, I was nervous about staying at the Dolphin, but I was pleasantly surprised. Our room was large and very clean. I'm not sure if we got a renovated room as the sink was inside the bathroom not outside as most reviewers state. We had a nice view of the Boardwalk and could even see the France...

Overview: The Swan - Dolphin resort is a conglomeration of two hotels, owned by Starwood / Marriott which are located directly across from each other. It is a terrific place to stay with proximity to EPCOT Center and boat transportation to Hollywood Studios. Walking through EPCOT gives you access to the monorail's direct transportation to Magic Kingdom and golf courses...

Stayed here for a conference. Room was on the east side, I had read reviews about east side rooms needing to be updated, ours would fall into that category. Room was a bit musty, hall way to room was very stinky, enough so that we would try and hold our breath from elevator to our room. Good qualities were the...
