What is the world's best theme park hotel?
Published: May 16, 2006 at 10:25 PM
In this category, we consider only "official," on-property hotels. I know that reduces the number of potential nominees, but... we really need to reduce the number of potential nominees. At what point away from a theme park resort is a hotel no longer considered a "theme park" hotel? One mile? Ten? The easiest way to draw the line is at the property line.
(Of course, we provide plenty of opportunities for readers to rate, review and book off-property theme park hotels. But we're just considering the on-site ones for the annual award.)
For those of you new to the site, here's how the awards work: click on the Browse Parks and Find Hotels links at the top of the page and browse to the attractions, restaurants and hotels you've been to in the past year. Submit your rating and review for each. We'll tally the ratings and the places with the highest average rating for the year win the awards. For parks, we take the highest cumulative rating for all the attractions and restaurants at the park.
Here are the leading contenders, in alphabetical order by resort, as of today:
Walt Disney World:
- Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
- Disney's Grand Floridian Resort
- Disney's Old Key West Resort
- Disney's Polynesian Resort
- Disney's Wilderness Lodge
- Walt Disney World Dolphin
