I agree the rooms are often nothing special but it does amuse me when people complain about the 2 double beds situation. No one expects 4 adults to share a room just because there is room to do so. Of course an adult daughter and her fiance need a seperate bedroom. There are loads of villas and suite style hotels or simply book two rooms. When I was a child and travelled to the UK we had to have two rooms with only 2 adults and 2 children because none of the rooms could sleep 4! Even now the family rooms in Premier Inns don't suit 4 adults. Most American hotel rooms are simply more flexible to suit different groups. Hotels also don't expect adults to sleep in single size beds so have 2 doubles to suit 2 friends traveling together.

The dark furniture is simply different tastes. The kitchen showrooms here are full of expensive dark kitchens. Most Americans would find the British high gloss white ones just as strange.

Thise curtains are just awful. That's why the movies reburbished rooms with sliding door are winning at the minute for me.

Shower curtains dont seem to be an issue though in the US and have watched lots of report on rooms on YouTube and none make mention of it.
Would agree with DonnaD, dont think I would like to have been sharing a room at any stage of my relationship with DH with my parents or his.

I wonder what the new Star Wars Hotel will be like if we put to one side the theming which will probably be outstanding.

Will it have shower curtains?

As an aside I see it's slated to open next year as it's only a 2 storey building.

Its definitely location that youre paying for. Have to say though, I really love the Poly studio rooms. I think theyre well themed and really well appointed 👍🏼

Whilst I am in a family group, I will invariably spend the majority of any Orlando vacation in a villa for all of the reasons identified in this post.

When my boys have flown the nest, then I may reappraise things and stay in a hotel with complimentary breakfast... but never on site.
