Post Photos of Hotels Here...DLH, HoJo, BWPPI, DI&S, CCI...etc.

I know that there are multiple sites to visit to see photos (interior and exterior) of the DLR hotels as well as the neighboring hotels, but I thought that a thread that collected all of photos in one place would be nice. We have yet to visit but will be staying at HoJo next week.

Soooo, does anyone out there have hotel photos to share?

You would think I should have Paradise Pier, HoJo, and Anabella pictures, but I don't.

However, I have some (grainy) in-room pictures of the Carousel!







(the bathroom that flooded dramatically, and got so steamy it set off the smoke alarm when I opened the bathroom door)


Closet



The room was almost exactly the same as our room at Anabella. They are sister hotels, and it was kind of spooky (NOT knowing that) walking into the Carousel room just a month after being at Anabella. Only difference was that our first floor room at Anabella had wood floors (which I loved).


Here's the view from outside my room at Carousel.



Bit of zoom:

Here are my pictures from the PPH last year. We were made the 'Big Kahuna Family' so we were in a very cool suite with an awesome view.






Sorry for the mess, this was on our last day and we were packing.



Looking at these pics reminds me of how sad I will be to be in DL at the Desert Inn and not onsite! Oh well, the budget only allowed that luxury once!

That first picture of EMAW's, just the bed area, looks just like the normal theme park room we were upgraded to at PP. So for frame of reference, that's what our room looked like. There was one loveseat (which I do have a picture of, but my private brother is on said couch so I can't post it) near the windows, but it wasn't a suite, just a room!

Here's what was on the other side of the bedroom side of the suite:





Sounds like it is similar to a regular room- it was nice! The bathroom was nice too but I didn't think to take pictures of the bathrooms.

2 bdrm Suite at DLH (Wonder Tower)

We were on the 12th floor with a Pool/DTD/Theme Park View. Our rooms were actually so that we had both rooms at the very end of the hallway. Our two bedroom suite was a 1 bedroom suite and what would probably be a deluxe or premium room as the 2nd bedroom. We had two full bathrooms plus a half bath. Here are some pictures.

Living area (in the 1 bedroom suite side) please excuse the mess, I took this one morning as we were getting ready to leave for the parks. The couch folded out into a queen bed, but we didn't need it.



The kitchenette area, this isn't a great picture, but it's a granite bar with some bar stools, a coffee pot, a bar sink, and refrigerator. Oh, and that's the half bath that the door is opened to. I didn't get a picture of the inside of it, but it looked like the other bathrooms, just without the shower



The master suite, we had a King bed and this bedroom was huge!, we had plenty of room for the pack n play the hotel provides. There was even a nice chair with an ottoman in this room, but I don't think I got a picture of it.



The TV armoire in the bedroom, you can also see a shot of the door, very nice, everyone could be out watching tv together and someone could still nap and it was surprisingly quiet.



Two pictures of the sink/mirror area of the 1 bedroom suite, I didn't take a picture of the bathroom, but it was nice that dh could shower and I could still use the mirror and sink to get ready and I didn't have to worry about him steaming them up since it was a seperate area.




The 2nd "bedroom" and vanity/bathroom.
2 queen beds, and also there was a fridge in this room, it's own TV and DVD player, and a couch with a pull out here as well, which we didn't need to use.





When we go without MIL, a 1 bedroom suite would be plenty big for the 5 of us.

tripadvisor.com has a lot of candid pics taken by travellers. These are a lot more revealing than the stock photos the hotels release!

I agree! I love tripadvisor and use it all the time.

I also love the pictures everyone has posted here with their comments. I have really come to trust the information from our fellow Disers and especially love seeing where some of our 'Dis friends' prefer to stay.

There are also some pictures in the Hotel Sticky, but most were from 2005, so I thought things may have changed somewhat since then.

My hope in starting this thread was that it would be an accumulation of photos and reviews that would be especially helpful for those just beginning their research. Honestly, it was hard for me to look 'outside the box' of the normal, well known names where we generally stay. For someone who is more familiar with the Orlando area...to stay someplace w/ the name Candy Cane Inn would be a huge stretch unless I saw pictures and great reviews from people I trusted.

Thanks All for your contributions, and I hope others will post candid pictures of HoJo's, Candy Cane etc too.

Here's a few from the outside of CCI. I never think to get any good pictures of it when we're there for some reason, though.

Here are some more pictures from Paradise Pier Hotel:












The great view we had.


This shows up on the side of the parking garage at night.

Thank you for posting these!
I LOVE each one!
We leave tomorrow and will be at HoJo's, so perhaps when I return I'll be able to figure out how to post pictures of the room there.
