Great Anniversary Trip!
Reviewed 19 hours ago

Our stay at the Dolphin was great. We arrived early. Noonish... Self parked, which was easy and close and they had a room ready for us! That helped tremendously because we wanted to hit food and wine then head to dinner.
The location is prime. The Dolphin is not a Disney resort but the perks are the same. The best perk. Room prices. Almost $200 cheaper than a Disney Deluxe resort.
I highly reccomend the Dolphin. Room was spacious and clean, Pool and bar are great. Staff was awesome and the boats to the parks were great!

Great birthday weekend at the Dolphin
Reviewed 2 days ago

Celebrated my birthday with my husband and 4 children at the Dolphin 10-12 thru 10-14.
We were upgraded to a gorgeous two room suite. My other 2 rooms were beautiful as well. The staff are awesome and a special shout out to Brandon at the front desk for taking great care in our accommodations. Thank you Zaheer for the fruit tray and chocolate covered strawberries. We have stayed at this hotel numerous times and will be back again in March for the Epcot Flower Show.

Not a Good Look for Disney or Marriott
Reviewed 2 days ago

I'm a seasoned traveler. I stay at Marriott Hotels 75-100 nights a year. I stayed at the Dolphin for a conference. They've updated the lobby, but the hotel rooms are old. The Carpet is old... and the interior is that of a cheesy hotel from 30 years ago. Most Marriotts I stay are better. I would never bring family here for a special week. Overpriced and outdated. This hotel needs to be shut down for 6 months, and completely overhauled. 2 stars for being close to my conference venue.. nothing more.

Great update to hotel and Check In!

Checked into The Dolphin Hotel today and had a great check in service by Brandon then took advantage of the great new lobby, well done guys! Has a cocktail enjoyed the fountain and even though the big event took a lot of the parking the front desk made the experience terrific.

Really worn out. I know 30 years ago it was great, I stayed here then. Desperately needs new carpet. Elevators are old and smell like chicken teriyaki and BO all day and night. I had water flies in my bathroom. I know its Florida and only a couple but still. Generally just worn thin and overrun with conferences. Very few families.
