Rated 5 out of 5 by 27Jackie Hotel stay at the Sheraton Orlando
The beds were comfortable, the pillows were great, the pool was nice but not heated. The hotel is nice, and the front desk agents were very professional, and helpful. Nice play to stay, and centrally located with easy access to I-4

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jeremy3 Not up to par
Was disappointed in our short visit. Rooms were old and needed to be updated. Not up to Sheraton standards. Because of time constrains, did not get to use the pool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JustRelax1 Trouble sleeping, Lots of road traffic in area
This is a hotel that locals call the Safari. I guess this is a hotel that has been rebranded too many times. Road noise is impossible to get a solid night sleep. The pillows are too too soft. the bathroom configuration is weird.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Carlo123 This hotel needs improvements
First we got stuck in the elevator. the phone in our room did not work. The shower has very poor water pressure. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the overall condition of the lobby and pool area was neat and clean.

Went to Disney for a day with family. Staff allowed us to stop by the hotel on our way to parks to check in early because we wouldn't be returning until late in the evening.
The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kat68 Sheraton Lake Buena Vista
We are gold level SPG members, and I had reserved 2 rooms (1 for guests of ours). Very kind that they upgraded our room to the executive suite- however the other reservation remained the same. We were disappointed that we could not get connecting rooms- that was really the only request we had asked for, however we were arriving at the back end of the 4th of July weekend, so I understood that availability might be limited. I believe connecting rooms could only be accomplished by putting both of us in Jr. Suites, however there would have a been a monetary charge to do so, so we declined. We were using points for both rooms. The executive suite was exceptionally comfortable in the bedroom. Odd that it was 2 queen beds instead of a king, but we still very much enjoyed the comfort of the beds and the room was extremely large. Our son slept on the pullout sleeper in the living area. The living area is extremely spacious as depicted in the photo gallery however it was strange that the only windows in the suite were located only in the bedroom (also no balcony / fyi). The staff were extremely friendly and the room service menu was very tasty indeed. Every thing was on time with our orders. The traditional room for our guests was quite narrow and a little tight, but they did have a balcony, which was nice. The split bathroom in the traditional room was a little odd too, but useable.
Our kids LOVED the pool, which includes a water flume/slide and a kids area with volley ball net. We enjoyed the outdoor bar.
All in all the hotel was as expected. We were on an overnight trip for Epcot - so the hotel was very conveniently located.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tata56 Aircon needs repair
We arrived late at the hotel after visiting the park tired and sleepy so did not bother calling for maintenance to check on the AC. It made a loud noise when compressor kicks in. We kept the temp high to control the noise.

Perfect for the Disney Area, the renovations have been worth it since the last time I stayed there. Bed is the best! Very relaxing for the madness of the Orlando Area, great restaurants near by...Room service was a savior!

Management blew it.
Everyone knew this hotel because of the snake slide and the safari theme.
The parents came here because the kids liked the snake slide.
Now it is just another one of the hu
ndreds of hotels in Orlando.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lisa28 Excellent Stay
The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. The pools are very inviting and refreshing. We would definately stay again. The elevator doors are to close to the stairwell exits so it was hard to accomodate others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nrod720 Great Resort To Stay and Relax.
My family and I had a great time the 6 days we were at the resort. If you sit at the restaurant to have dinner or by the pool to enjoy the sun, you get with a warm family treatment that makes you feel very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tomrossi77 Great get-away!
Really enjoyed this hotel! Excellent pool, excellent rooms and facilities! The fact that they had games and balls scattered around the pool shows they are willing to go above and beyond to make things fun for the kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FortuneCJC Poor Front Desk Experience w/Ernest Justin
I've been coming for about 10 years with my brother and his wife. Never have I experienced such poor customer service, as I did on Jan 16th. The front desk representative, Ernest Justin, was extremely rude to me. He was in the process of assisting me with printing my boarding pass and he abruptly stopped helping me and began to help someone who had walked into the line. I asked him why he wouldn't complete printing my boarding passes and he just ignored me and continued helping the other person. I would not have asked him to help me except that the printer in the lobby was inoperable and I was told to ask for assistance from the front desk staff. Eventually, another your lady assisted me, but that was after about 10 minutes. I was late taking photos and was not in the mood to take pictures at that point. This young man has no idea what "customer service" means, if he will drop one person in mid-stream to assist another. This was the only bad experience that I encountered during the entire week. I'll be back Jan 2015 and hopefully he will have better customer service skills.

My wife and I stayed three days, and on each day the A/C unit in our room was replaced because the units would not cool the room. The last night we finally got a unit that worked efficiently. Very disappointing.

This is a poorly ran hotel and very surprised it's in the Starwood family.
I had so many problems with this hotel I'm not even going to get into detail, but I would advise an inspection to keep in system.
