According to Hospitality Design magazine, “The Holiday Inn Walt Disney World Resort has spent $35 million to relaunch its hotel within Walt Disney World Resort this fall. The 14-story, 323-room facility will feature a lobby outfitted with a glass ceiling atrium, a citrus scent, lush foliage, and floor-to-ceiling views of the zero-entry tropical pool that connects to a lap pool.
Contemporary guestrooms will offer crisp bedding that comes with two pillow options, enhanced bathroom amenities, LCD TV, and balconies in some rooms. Additional amenities include the Atrium Restaurant (left), a lounge, a fitness complex, a jogging path, an outdoor hot tub and sun deck, and a game room.”
There is also A Kids Eat Free and all-day dining plan, an on-site Disney store and comp wife and parking.
Also, the hotel offers complimentary transportation (every 30 minutes) to Disney theme parks and guaranteed access and preferred tee times at Walt Disney World golf courses.
As part of the opening celebration, guests can now reserve rooms with rates of $57 (this year is the 57th anniversary of the Holiday Inn brand). Other rates of less than $70, double, include a $20 breakfast credit (per room, per day). These are regular rooms of no more than 4 persons to a room.
I checked several sites and for booking a stay from November 19-24 – with five people – the Holiday Inn WDWR was averaging just about $94.20 per room, per night (I needed two rooms for the stay.)
The Hilton, located in the WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort for the same stay was offering up a 1 King bed Junior Suite with Sofa bed for $219 a night.
Both offered Exclusive Extra Magic Hours Program featuring extended time in a selected park along with complimentary transportation to WALT DISNEY WORLD theme parks and attractions. Both are also within walking distance of Downtown Disney.
