“Bad layout, Bad hardware”
Reviewed 30 August 2010

Please be aware that this review is from a stay a year ago. A year ago, this hotel was not listed on tripadvisor so I couldn't post it then. I actually *waited* a year until this listing was up, to post the review. That's how bad my experience was. However, it has been a year. PERHAPS they've been able to change some things.

Whatever you do, do not bother spending your money at this "new" hotel. I just came back from spending two days there for Oct 1, and the "hardware" has some serious issues! First, VERY inconvenient layout. To reach our rooms from the lobby, we had to take THREE elevators AND walk down 2 small flights of stairs!! While we were on the far end of the hotel, minimum you will take 2 elevators and most likely have to deal with 1 flight of stairs. Second, the room still smelled slightly of paint so if you like to inhale paint fumes, then this is the room for you. Third, our JBL iPod Speaker Radio was already broken. Fourth, we had to move rooms during our stay, BECAUSE the shower stall door wasn't correctly installed and fell and broke over the bathroom floor! Fifth, you walk under a waterfall/river to reach the lobby. Panels of the glass separating us from the water already had cracks running through them! Sixth, because the area around the hotel is new, the ONLY thing open at night to eat are the 2 hotel "restaurants". There are two major sections of the amusement park, separated by cable cars. This hotel is in the newer section. The cable cars stop running around 9 or 10pm though so if you eat dinner late, or want to catch a show on the other side, you need to wait for the shuttle to drop you off at the hotel parking lot, and call for a buggy to come down from the hotel to get you. The food was adequate. Is there a reason to stay here? Spend your money at one of the other hotels.
