We just returned from our trip in March and we stayed at the HBC. I loved it and would definitely choose this hotel again. Everything about the place was great and the pool area was really nice. I can't wait to go back!

We were there friday and my kid was glued to the pool, we never made if off the hotel complex. At 8:30 pm, they set up a huge movie screen at the pool and show movies. Friday nights movie was Despicable Me, our first experience with a "dive in"

We will be staying there in a few days too for our first night in Orlando

On last minute travel, if you pretend to add a car rental to your hotel, you can then press on continue booking and to the right of your screen it will show you which hotel it is!

I just booked Hilton Bonnet Creek for 1 night and I got a message saying they couldn't confirm my request because the deal was sold out and they have to see if they can get additional rooms. They say they will let me know within 48 hrs.---keeping our fingers crossed as we are staying at the Bonnet Creek Resort from Tues-Friday so this would be so convenient for our 1st day.

I got the same message about it not being available. It said they would get back to me within 48 hours. This was last night. I still haven't heard back and we leave in less than 24 hours. yikes. Hope we get something soon. *fingers crossed*

For those of you who booked through LMT...

What type of room did you get? We would have to have at least 2 queens.

Thanks,
Ron

It's great to see so many positive reviews of HBC, we are staying there for the first time next week. Our flight lands at 10:30am, we were planning to try and check in to HBC then - is that a waste of time? I know at many Disney Resorts you can check in early even if your room isn't ready. If we don't check in then, we won't check in until we return from Epcot/dinner around 10pm. Not sure which is better. Anyway, thanks for any insight!

When we visit we plan to check in early & head to Epcot. Like you we will not get back till late and I dont want to get the bottom of the barrel for checking in late. I would check in early even if your room is not ready just so they know you are and hopefully you will get your room preferences!

We ended up on the top floor (18). The front desk was very accomodating. It was the last room (farthest from the elevator) down the final hall. It was a room with 1 king and it faced the front of the bldg. (woods-parking). It was a great view and you could even see the lights from that amusement park on International Drive near the outlet mall.

Exactly my thought! I suppose it's worth a shot!

I recently returned from the Hilton Bonnet Creek - booked through lastminutetravel.com. This is a really beautiful hotel. We were on the 17th floor with views of the Wyndham Bonnet Creek and Downtown Disney. We had a room with two queen beds - comfy bathrobes too. As a Hilton BC guest you can use the facilities at the Waldorf Astoria as well. When I wanted to swim laps I used the Waldorf pool - very relaxing atmosphere. Towels were available at both pools. Hilton Harvest Bistro had a great breakfast buffet for $19 - we had dinner there as well and it was very nice.

I'll try to post some pics!
