They might be budget, Wayne, but they look immaculate - I'd happily stay there!

ok UK DEB, you win cant compete with those hotels, where exactly are they?
LOL! Reunion Grande is at the Ginn Reunion Resort about 6 miles due south of WDW. The Ritz-Carlton, Grande Lakes is near Sea World. The Rosen Shingle Creek is 2 miles from Pointe Orlando near the Convention Center (currently more-or-less on its own on fairly recently broken ground). The Ritz-Carlton and Rosen Shingle Creek are actually very close to one another.

    Like I have always said, some people like yourselves make the hotel part of the holiday and enjoy the luxury, others like myself see it as somewhere to sleep for the night and get away from, we never use any resort facilities. Florida is best place in the world at catering for eveyone.

    In post #18 there is a Pooh bear on the bed, he has been on every trip since DS was born, In 13 years he has been abroad 47 times. Xmas will clock up his 50th, maybe we should have a party to celebrate.:rotfl:

    It's a lovely resort isn't it.

    I don't know why but I don't think I took a picture of the room :confused3 or at least if I did then I must have deleted it! If you've got one Deb then could you post it please?

    The first time we stayed, in May, 2003, we had a lovely room (to the left of Thirsty Fish in your second photo). It had a big balcony and shutters between the bedroom and bathroom. The bathroom had a huge tub and separate shower. Elder dd somehow managed to wipe an entire memory card, comprising all our PBH shots. We have video footage, but no photos. :guilty:

    In July, 2004, our room was nowhere near as nice. It was on the opposite side of the bay and, again, on the top floor with views towards HRH, but we didn't feel inspired to take any photos of the room.

    Debbie, I have always wanted to stay the the Ritz Carlton, but now my kids have got the Disney bug I find it hard to fit in.

    But looking at your photos of Renuion Grande I may have to change my mind. What sort of room was that you stayed in?

    How do they compare to the Ritz Carlton ?

    Thanks
    Melissa

    Thanks Claire, I will take some of inside the room next month if you don't find them, staying there for 3 nights after our cruise.:cloud9:
    Thanks Wayne...if your room is the same layout as ours was then I might have to pinch a copy for my photo album! ;)

    The Reunion Grande is a condo hotel, and you can choose either a one or two bed unit with a lounge/kitchen/dining area. At the Ritz-Carlton we stayed in a regular hotel room, although suites are available. We were lucky enough to stay at both (as well as Rosen Shingle Creek) shortly after they opened so, not only was everything shiny new, but we got unbelievably great rates. Reunion Grande still has that newness in its favour over the Ritz-Carlton. I absolutely adore Reunion (we also have 3 villa stays under our belts), but I would also happily stay at the Ritz-Carlton again. The service there is second to none.

    I'm loving everyone's photos - what a great resource! It's definitely worthy of "sticky" status, but I think we should hold off until activity wanes - sticking threads sometimes has the effect of killing them.
