The Plaza is one of the boulevard's originals, but renovations during its 25 years (including a multimillion-dollar makeover a couple of years ago) have kept it in quite good shape. A favorite with the budget-minded, its hallmark is a friendly staff (some of whom have been there since the hotel opened) that provides excellent service. The well-sized rooms sport quality furnishings and amenities (pull out sofas, plasma TVs, and more) and have enough space for five. Poolside rooms have balconies and patios; the tower rooms have separate sitting areas, and some offer whirlpool tubs in the bathrooms. If you want a view from up high, ask for a room facing west and WDW; the south and east sides keep a watchful eye on I-4 traffic. The inner courtyard offers a quiet escape where you can sit by the pool and soak up the Florida sunshine surrounded by scattered palm trees.
Facilities: Restaurant; lounge; heated outdoor pool; 4 lighted tennis courts; fitness center; whirlpool; guest-services desk; children's activity program; complimentary bus service to WDW parks; transportation to non-Disney parks for a fee; Disney gift shop; limited room service; babysitting; guest laundry; valet
