    Not part of Disney's properties but on the same lagoon as Boardwalk Inn. A very nice hotel with comfy rooms.

    Hotel was nice - the property seems pretty large. We stayed at the Dolphin and the Sean is right next door. Between the two you have a decent selection of restaurants to choose from. It's walking distance to the boardwalk and the ferry service will take you to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. For the other theme parks, there's a shuttle service right outside. The laundry facility could have been a little cleaner though. There's a kiddie pool, family pool and adult pool here.

    Stayed here to attend a conference. Very convenient to restaurants on the Boardwalk and Walt Disney World. Love riding the boat instead of the shuttle.

    This hotel is JUST OK.
    not so memorable...average....service was ok.
    The reason I gave it 3 Stars is because of the location.
    It is well located and has a Disney Shuttle.

    These are the equivalent of the Contemporary, Grand Floridian and Polynesian hotels near the Magic Kingdom, in that you are so close to both Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot.
    You are a boat ride away (or if you choose, you can walk) from both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios. Not actually Disney-run hotels; an anomaly for their location.
    Both have great amenities and enjoy some great views depending on the room you are in.

    Location, location, location, and comfortable beds. I'm an EPCOT and Disney Hollywood Studios lover--blame it on my love of drinking around the world. Needless to say, I love the location of the Swan hotel. Their heavenly beds and park views make this an excellent hotel.
    The lobby has happy hour type events and between the Swan and Dolphin, there are several restaurant options.
    It's about a 2 minute walk to the middle of the Boardwalk area where even more dining options exist.

    Not the best Starwood Hotel I have been to. Customer service was lacking.
