Upon checking in I received room #9062 east tower So I proceed to my room only to find out my key would not work, called front desk they explained I was in room #9062 west, so off I go to the west tower only to find their isn't a 9062 west. Back on the phone only to find out that my room # is 9162 west tower, off again to room, key works but only to find that the room has not been made at all, dirty bathroom un made beds just dirty. Call front desk they were very sorry switched my room and gave an in house credit of $100.00. Still very disappointing coming from a starwoods property

This is a good option for those looking for a good cost benefit ratio. I recommend the hotel.

We booked our hotel last minute - came for the Disney Marathon weekend - and were very pleasantly surprised. Our room was on one of the refurbished floors and was very nice. The only negative aspect would be that WI-FI is not included in the price... Had a wonderful meal at the Trattoria in the Swan Hotel next door :-)

We had never vacationed at the Dolphin before. From check-in to departure we had a wonderful experience. We arrived to the hotel (and a pretty busy front desk) at 11:15am not expecting to check in until later, but our room was ready. We were checked in and off to the room in approximately 10 minutes. The lobby was beautifully decorated for the holidays, staff was friendly & helpful and the room was well maintained. The room was near the elevator (literally on the other side of the wall to our room), but was quiet. We didn't have the noise others complained about on the message boards. The elevator was also the fastest we have ever seen. We never waited more than 20 seconds for it to arrive after pushing the button. The Dolphin is in a great location. Near Epcot, Hollywood Studios and the Disney Boardwalk. Would and will definitely stay here again.

The balcony room is an added plus. Nice view. Service was good but got woken up because I was told someone called 911 from my room. Water in tub wasn't draining correctly. View was great! Room service was worth the price and found their pizza tasty and lower priced than other places at the park. The lobby was decorated quite well for the Christmas holiday with a large white tree in the center. The buses to the parks can take a bit longer than normal so plan accordingly. I recommend singing up for the spg loyalty program as they treat Gold and Platinum members a little bit better.

Waiting line at the reception is always too long. More staff required for the exhausted visitor flying in from abroad.

The hotel has a great location and service was good. however, I was missinformed about the Disney Extra Magic Hours. I specifically ask if this means a free entrance tickets to the parks and was answered affirmatively. I had a long waiting time at front desk and the attendant couldn't find the reservation.

When got to the hotel we were upgraded to a room with two balconies, unfortunately we found an unused nettle on the floor. When we let the staff know they apologized and added $150 to our room credit. While a nettle on the floor was not a good welcome they dealt with it quickly and apologized.

Personally, I think the Swan and Dolphin are due for a major facelift; they still have that 1980s look. But, the room we stayed in was comfortable and recently redone, so it was okay. We like this property because it lets you walk very easily to the Boardwalk entertainment area, and from there it's just a short distance to the back entrance to EPCOT. There appear to be a lot of dining options at the hotel, but we didn't experience them. The one place we went was the bar at BlueZoo, which was very nice, but closed early (11:30).

The Dolphin and the sister hotel The Swan are beautiful, light, and a close walk to Disney's Boardwalk and on to the rear entrance to Epcot. Inside the hotel are some good restaurants, neat shops, and the rooms are lovely with very comfortable beds. We would stay there again and again!

Everyone was pleasant, more business guests than family which was fine. Bed and pillows were excellent. Great laundry room. Food and choices of restaurants excellent. Pool could have been cleaner. Excellent and quick access to Hollywood studios and Epcot. I walked to Epcot in 12 minutes! All the disney amenities(extra park hours) and at a much better price. The bus service to magic kingdom needs improvement. Overall an "A"{

Long lines for our check-in and only 2 attendants on duty. Otherwise a confortable hotel with lots of things to do. The Disney Boardwalk offers good entertaining for the late nights after the theme parks. Plenty of dining options. Very confortable beds with good pillow selection. They are very into environmental conservation.

This hotel was an awesome find for a getaway for my wife and I. As soon as you pull in and park there's nothing left to do. You can either walk to Epcot or Hollywood Studios or take a water taxi. You are also a short walk from The Boardwalk. We really enjoyed this trip and definitely plan to do it again in the future.

Beware , there is no free airport shuttle via the disney magical express. you can only use the free magical express if your hotel is disney swan which is just next to disney dolphin. counter staffs are friendly and helpful but room service and cleaning up is horrible . Called them 3 times for a cup of water and waited more than 4 hours yet i didnt receive any water.

Wonderful. Our favorite Disney hotel for this price-range. The Animal Kingdom Lodge is an experience like no other, but is easily twice the price. Thanks!
