This hotel is Probably Commendable but it tips the scale into Outstanding for its proximity to Epcot. If you are sans-kids you probably spend most of your time in Epcot and being a 10-minute walk from the International Gateway makes this hotel a prime location for that park.
The one drawback is the total absence of a Food Court so, if you are like me and like to start the day out by walking down to get a couple of refillable-mug coffees for Her Majesty and me, you are largely out of luck. You are left with the bakery on Boardwalk or the bar on the lobby level which get pretty busy the later you go in the morning.
We lucked out in October 2007 when we checked in for Food & Wine and were given a 5th floor room overlooking the back of the French Pavilion. Every night was Illuminations night from our balcony and, on the night of 1st October it was an extra-long programe due to the 25th Anniversary of the opening of Epcot.
Have found that Beach/Yacht Club is more in line with our needs due to the presence of the mini-Food Court in the BC. Next planned Epcot area stay will probably be at BCV since we've recently figured out the magic of renting points from DVC owners.
BW has excellent, close access to many great restaurants in DHS, Epcot, on BW, in the BC/YC and the Swolfin complex.
