re: theme and generic look
A lot of hotels look bland from the 500 ft view provided. Don’t worry about it yet. We’ll get more looks at the rooms, lobby, and amenities that will add more character and charm to the property.
I don’t know why anyone is worrying in the first place. It’s a sub-$100 room that’s off-site from either property and you have to bus to the parks.
Anyone expecting incredible- or even moderate theming is going to be disappointed.
Look at pop, all stars- and honestly, AoA (which I feel is extremely overrated- it’s still a S-hole). Doors on the outside, crappy dingy rooms- AoA has an “ok” pool- the other ones suck.
Compare those to this, and this is WAY better. Theming here will be generic and bland- as it should be for a sub $100 room. But you’ll get Loews service, inside-corridors/doors, and the pools are significantly better.
Are these huge? Oh ya. Will pools be crowded and lobby’s be busy? Yup. But if you want quaint, better service and better theming- then pony up more than $100. Can’t have champagne taste on that beer budget.
But as a value and quality comparison vs Disney- this is significantly better.
