I recently had the opportunity to be a guest at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek to experience their Marathon Weekend vacation getaway during Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend. This was my fifth year participating in the Princess Half Marathon, and I have always stayed at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel during those weekends. I was a bit nervous about staying off property and worried that the transportation to and from the race would be a challenge. Well, from the minute I entered the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek I knew that my stay would be fantastic and that I could set any worries aside. I will absolutely be making a return visit to this Resort, and I highly recommend booking a stay here, not just during Marathon Weekends, but anytime. Here’s why:
* The Staff ~ The staff members at the Resort were wonderful. The cheerful staff at the Runners’ Concierge were so very helpful in answering any questions. ( before I even had to ask them I might add) I had a little snafu at check-in due to the computer system going down, but the front desk staff member assisting me went out of his way to make sure I could check-in to one of my rooms and relax while they worked on getting my other room ready. (* Thanks so much Tony..you were a life-saver!) I’ll get back to the staff part in a minute but let me go on to my next reason to stay here…..
* It’s BEAUTIFUL ~ The Lobby, The Rooms, The Grounds, The Pool, ….All of it……Take a look:
* The Race Day Staff ~ I mentioned above how great the staff is right? On the morning of the Princess Half Marathon these smiling faces were waiting to greet the runners and cheer us on at 2:45am…yes, 2:45am!!! There was music pumping and lots of drinks and food to fuel us up for the race. Complimentary bus transportation to and from the Race was provided to all Guests participating.
