The availability of walking & running courses makes the stay even more pleasant. Don't miss...

I stayed here for a convention. The room itself was fine--I think some rooms are older, some newer. I must have been in a newer one. What I really loved about this property was the service! Our front desk person steered us to a Peruvian restaurant upon arrival that was delicious! The wifi in the rooms didn't work for a...

The location of the Swan hotel is great for visiting Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Our room was clean and spacious. We were on the 11th floor with a beautiful view of the canal to Hollywood Studios, the Haunted Mansion and Epcots World. We could see the fireworks at Epcot and Fantasmic every night from our room. The bus transportation to...

Our stay at the Swan was fabulous. We had adjoining rooms with balconies and a wonderful view. The newly renovated rooms were sensational and very refreshing. The fish sandwich at the pool bar was very good with a draft beer. Highly recommend it. Thanks again Swan for the great time.

We stayed at the Dolphin resort and I can say for sure that this hotel requires a renovation as soon as possible. I heard that the Swan resort was much better.

Stayed at the Dolphin for a business conference. Honestly the place needs to get out of 80's for the prices paid there. I get the location is good, but i have a feeling that they have been leaning on that for 25-30 years now.Next time i'll bring my Miami Vice outfits. There is only so much peach, coral and aqua...
