    Re: The Grand Floridian FAQ thread

    http://www.magicaltravel.com/Grand%20Floridian.htm


    Picturesque views of the Seven Seas Lagoon or the Grand Floridian marina are available from more than half of the 900 rooms at the Grand Floridian. Garden views overlook the lush, landscaped gardens, Pool/Marina views overlook the interior courtyard pool or the marina, and Lagoon views offer a view of the Seven Seas Lagoon.

    There are lodge rooms, concierge rooms and suites available as well as standard guest rooms. The following is a breakdown of the buildings and the type of accommodations found there:

    Sago Cay, lagoon/marina view rooms, garden view dormer rooms, lodge tower rooms, hospitality suites and one- and two-bedroom suites

    Sugar Loaf, concierge rooms

    Conch Key, hospitality suites, one- and two-bedroom suites, pool/marina/lagoon views

    Boca Chica, standard guest rooms, lagoon, pool, dormer and tower rooms

    Big Pine Key, lagoon/pool/garden views

    Main Building, concierge rooms and suites.

    Which rooms are closest to...

    ...the beach? - Guest rooms in the Main Building and in Big Pine Key are located just along the beach of Seven Seas Lagoon.

    ...the monorail? - Guest rooms in the Main Building are an elevator's ride away from the monorail station. Rooms in Sago Cay , Sugar Loaf Key , and Big Pine Key are all about equally the next closest.

    The buses? - The bus stop is located just outside and below the monorail station. Room proximity to the buses is about the same as for the monorail.
    The restaurants? - Guest rooms in the Main Building are located only a few floors above all restaurants, with the exception of Narcoossee's. Rooms in Conch Key are actually closest to Narcoossee's. Besides those in the Main Building, rooms in Big Pine Key and Sugar Loaf Key are quite near the main restaurants. Sugar Loaf Key is particularly convenient to both Gasparilla Grill & Games and the Grand Floridian Cafe.

    The marina? - Guest rooms in Sugar Loaf Key and Conch Key are located just outside of the marina. These rooms, as well as those in Sago Cay, all have rooms that overlook the marina.

    The pool? - Guest rooms in Boca Chica, Big Pine Key, and Sugar Loaf Key all are closest to the courtyard pool, as well as the kiddie pool.

    Holidays at the GF are amazing and the main lobby smells of gingerbread. Here are some pictures of the Full size Gingerbread house that they erect in the lobby. The sell candy and treats from it and they are so good.

    It's an ok hotel, but I do believe the Grand Californian offers a better overall experience ;-)
