We stayed here for two nights this past weekend and it was absolutely lovely. The club level service is exceptional. They are very nice to everyone and make you feel at home. We had an emergency and we had to leave early but they helped us get a taxi and check out quickly. The food was very good every day, but it may not fill someone who is used to eating more food at meals. Our rooms were cleaned daily and turned down every night. Overall the service at the sugar loaf club level is great! Read less

Loved every aspect of our two day stay. Exceeded our expectations. We had a lovely room on the fifth floor outer building over looking the pool. The high ceilings in our room were really cool and the decor in the room was very pretty and not over the top as still was very comfortable and honey.the beds and pillows were very comfortable! Temperature in the room was 68 but could use a fan for noise at night. No ceiling fan. I could not figure out how to change the temp in the room. Room was very large and spacious. I appreciated the Keurig coffee maker and coffee for the morning and mini fridge in our room. The decor and ambiance of this resort is stunning. Very clean and fresh feel to it. Smells amazing too even in the public bathroom s. Luckily my daughter got a great cast discount to stay here otherwise it's very pricey per night but I'm so glad we were able to stay here and experience the beauty and comfort and convenience of a Disney luxury resort!

Our second trip to Disney with our 4 year old. Last year I looked across the water and couldn’t wait to stay at Grand Floridian this year! Massive property with gorgeous grounds feels like it’s own little world. All staff we encountered were so welcoming and nice. I wish I could remember the name but the young man who helped me get bags out of car he was so helpful and welcoming. Perfect Spot right on monorail! So easy to get to the parks. Only reason I gave 4⭐️instead of 5 is I didn’t go a day out of our 6 nights without killing at least 1 bug of some kind. Nothing major just gnats or ant type bugs that maybe were even carried in from outside. Just seemed odd to be every single day. With that said I’m already planning next years stay at Grand Floridian!

We have been to Florida several times and have always wanted to stay at the Grand Floridian and finally this year my dream came true. I am pleased to say that it was everything I’d hoped for and more. We arrived in the morning and were greeted by the friendly staff who took our bags, we were able to check in and collect our Magic bands although our rooms weren’t yet ready. When we returned later we were taken to our rooms with our luggage by Donny who was so incredibly helpful, especially when there was a mud up with the rooms. My grown up children need two doubles and not a king and Donny immediately contacted reception and not only arranged this but also changed our room so we had the room next door . The rooms were lovely and we had an amazing view of the lake and we could also see the castle which was a pleasant surprise. We ate in two if the restaurants at the hotel which were both really good, particularly Narcoossee’s where we were able to watch the fireworks from the deck. We also visited the pool and had cocktails at the bar, the margaritas were delicious and the bartender was excellent. The whole experience of the Grand Floridian was magical from beginning to end and staying there made our whole Disney experience perfect. It just proves you’re never too old for Disney! Read less

This is one of the best hotels we’ve been to, it’s similar in appearance to the pink hotel in Paris but on another level with some of the amenities. The hotel soap shop and Princess maker are great and we’ll get involved in the latter when our daughter is older. Magic.
