Rooms

At 455 square feet each, the 586 guest rooms at Shades of Green are larger than those at the Grand Floridian.

  • Room with Queen Bed(s) and en-suite bathroom
  • Balcony or patio
  • Dresser with drawers
  • Full-length mirror
  • Wireless Internet (Wi-Fi)
  • Flat-panel TV
  • Coffee maker and starter supply of coffee pods
  • Ironing board and iron
  • Hair dryer
  • Digital thermostat
  • In-room safe
  • Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and bar soap

While the rooms are certainly large, nicely appointed, and immaculately maintained - not to mention a great value for those who qualify to stay here - they are indistinguishable from the rooms at any number of decent midpriced hotels; there's no discernible theming or wow factor.

Dining

Restaurants include Mangino’s, an Italian eatery; the Garden Gallery buffet; two quick-service options; and a sports bar and grill.

Amenities
