Rated 3 out of 5 by dq101710 Overcharged for a Disappointing Stay
The hotel was chartered by an event planner the entire weekend I visited. The events consisted of pool parties and evening functions that attracted many non-hotel guests. Due to this, I and many other hotel guests were forced to self-park in a strip mall parking lot 2 blocks down the street. The parking was not secure and the walk to the hotel in the late evening by an all-female group of us was not what we expected when we booked the hotel. To add insult to this, upon check-out, I was charged $10 per day for 4 days, for each vehicle for a total of $80.00!!!!! WHen I discussed this with the agent, she stated this was hotel policy and I had agreed to pay the $10 per day upon check-in. Simple as that! As to having to park 2 blocks away, she said, "Well, at least we had parking available for you." Not my idea of customer service, to say the least. I WILL NOT return. In addition, rooms were serviced as late as 5:30PM some days, due to the events taking place and the staff working in other areas of the hotel.

I would like a special mention for Ary who went above and beyond. I was by the pool with mu Autistic Nephew and Ary noticed that he was hot and brought over a drink for him,
This helps restore our faith in humanity...If there are employee awards she most certainly deserves one...

Rated 5 out of 5 by disneymeme EXCELLENT 5 night stay with pet
We will definitely visit this Sheraton again! Everything was simply WONDERFUL! The beds and pillows were very comfortable, giving us great nights sleep! Sheraton has really out done themselves with the pool area! Both kid and adult friendly! All of this luxury at a great price!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jimison47 Services Below SPG Expectations
This facility has overhauled its pool area but has forgotten about customer service. What was once FREE parking will now cost you $10. And where there was once attention paid to customer service there has been a dramatic drop related to detail. Poor recognition to SPG status.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rob13 dirty room
The top bunk bed was filled with some type of crumbs when the covers were pulled down. It was like the maid did not check it because it looked like it was not slept in. Also they need to vacuum more behind the nooks and crannies of the bunk beds and behind tables and chairs

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eart32 GREAT STAY
For price this was an amazing stay. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Our room was clean and comfortable. Pool area was clean and very entertaining for the whole family. Will definitely stay here again. I suggest the older elevators get an update as they are quite slow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SMH05 Room Not Ready
Our room was not ready until after 4pm the day of our arrival. The front desk informed us they would locate our party when our room was ready and they did not. We were told our room would not be charged for the daily resort fee due to our inconvenience, but we WERE charged.

Renovation of hotel is very nice- better than expected. Clean, bright and lovely.
Children loved the heated pool in the 50 degree weather. (Even had staff playing with the kids)
Breakfast with Brenda (every morning) and the Balloon Man (Saturday morning) was a treat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NOLADEE The hotel was comfortable!
I enjoyed my weekend stay as I was in Orlando for a conference. However, I found the staff at the hotel to be the greatest asset! The front desk staff, doormen and room service staff were SUPER friendly and I would recommend the hotel because everyone was so helpful!

We were in town for a conference and to take the kids to Disney. The Sheraton was clean and the staff was friendly. This was an exceptional experience. The shuttle service to Disney could use a little work and the drinks were expensive but everything else was great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debb57 Amazing Staff!!
We just spent Oct 8th through Oct 22 in Florida and 8 of those nights were at the Buena Vista Sheraton.
I must say that the employees at the Sheraton were so polite and helpful each and every minute of our stay.
Usually you might have someone who goes above and beyond ,but everyone ,really ,everyone! that we came in contact to during our 8 night stay was so genuinely helpful in an extremely warm hospitable manner.
We were there for the 2013 International Conference Oct.18-20.
Representatives were there not only the US but many different countries.
The hotel staff was quite tolerant of our
very late night social hours! and I am extremely grateful for that. We do not have this opportunity but twice a year.
The housekeepers were so amazingly sweet! Please Thank them for keeping my coffee stocked!
I traveled from Oregon with my husband and my granddaughter and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of service that we experienced.
You are very fortunate to have such wonderful people on your staff!

I love this hotel for many reasons. Location, service, convenience and comfort. The Sheraton Lake Buena Vista is in a perfect location not only for the theme parks but it is within walking distance to dozens of great restaurants. I will definitely stay again.

The outer door to our building was not locked at night. As two single females we did not feel totally secure at night.
Also - I loved having the transportation provided to the parks, but the pick-up and drop off location was remote and there was no seating.

The hotel was really nice. My room was exactly like the picture , so there was no surprises. I plan to return again whenever I am in the area again. The kids loved it. The food in the hotel's cafe and pool side bar was also very good and service was great.

Everything about this hotel is top notch - location, convenience, amenities, food and beverage and accomodations. And the attitude of the staff is far and away the best I have ever experienced. From start to finish, every employee made me feel like a VIP.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Deb17 Average Hotel
I thought for where it is and what it is, when you add in the resort fees $10, and then $10 for parking you are better off staying in a closer hotel. I didn't like the area either. Should have stayed right in Lake Buena Vista or in the park for the money

Rated 3 out of 5 by staff just ok
On balance a reasonable place, be aware that they charge an automatic 15% gratuity regardless of number of people, and there is a daily resort charge of 16.95. Don't get the pork chop..terrible. The work out room is great & there is lots of pool space,

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ive0216 all staff should be on board
I stayed in the hotel from Thursday 11-29 through 12-2. When we first came in we were greeted by Elizabeth. She made us feel like a million dollars. She really made us feel welcomd. On Friday as we walked passed the lobby and once again greeted by Elizabeth sh. Recomended the breakfast buffet and told us all the wonderful items on the breakfast buffet. Friday night we requested additional sheets and it took the staff 1 1/2 to get us the sheets. No apologies were given, and the follow up phone call was never received. On Saturday as we walked through the lobby there was no greeting and no acknowledgment. On Sunday when we checked out one of the girls answered a question with an attitude. I was unaware of local call charges and her response was " did you not make the calls to 407-....... Her response should have been" I see that you made some local calls and we charge for local calls". I stayed at the Sheraton in Ft.Lauderdale and it was amazing when I got the welcome from Elizabeth I thought it would be the same. I guess I was wrong.

When I looked online it made it seem like everything was included. I had to pay extra for a microwave in my room and parking. It really wasn't worth it. It was small and cramped. The best thing about the room was not being in it, but being in the pool.

After check-in and getting to room, had to go back to front desk and request all coffee items (except the coffee maker) to be sent to room. Also had to inquire to receive my Gold level complimentary wifi, and it was then set up for me post check-in.

Sheraton always offers excellent locations, normal expected support and a great staff. They have done a great job updating the facility. The only complaint is the internet was a bit slow and the elevator was a bit stuffy. Overall, I would go back.
