“Lovely hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

My husband attended a conference here. We arrived early, but there was a room available for us. The room was large and comfortable, and we appreciated the fact that the Internet was free. My only complaint was that there was no refrigerator. Even though there was a conference, the hotel was not noisy or crowded. In fact when I went to the pool, there was only one family there. We liked the fact that there was a nice choice of restaurants within walking distance. They gave our group a very reasonable rate for such a nice place to stay.

Very pleased with my week long stay at the Lake Mary Marriott. The real stars are the staff. During the week I had interactions with a few at the front desk, the maids, the hostesses at the concierge lounge - and all were extremely pleasant, helpful and professional. The room was large, meticulously clean, quiet and every thing worked. The concierge lounge was a wee bit of a disappointment. During the breakfast service, there were not enough tables/seats to accommodate the customers and the food/drink selection is very limited. It was a little better in the evening - fewer people and slightly more interesting appetizers. I did not eat in the lobby restaurant but did order room service a few times and it was surprisingly good (tasty, hot and on-time). [There are several very good food options (at least 15 restaurants) within an easy walk. Especially liked Liam Fitzpatrick's across the main street. Avoid Fishbones at all costs.]

The outdoor pool is sparkling clean and large enough to swim real laps. The gym is the usual small room crammed with treadmills.

The property is not particularly convenient to Orlando attractions - at least a 25 minute drive to nearest park. This wasn't a problem for me but might be a consideration if the parks are your destination.

I would stay here again with no hesitation.

Room Tip: Even numbers look southwest. Odd look northeast. Concierge is on 9. The parking lot can be busy at t...

This Marriott is extremely comfortable with a very welcoming staff. The concierges in the concierge lounge went out of their way to have good food, whether it was hors d'eouvres or breakfast. The Sunday brunch was the best I have had anywhere. The pool area was quiet. We would come to this area for the sole purpose of staying at this hotel. The restaurant mall across the highway was enjoyable also and there is a very upscale mall not too far away - Millennia Mall. All in all, an enjoyable weekend spent while we attended a wedding nearby.

A fan of Chihuly glass-art in Seattle/Tacoma, I was thrilled to see Dale Chihuly's art displayed at this mega-hotel which housed the Florida Writers Association conference. Most guests don't experience the excellent service available for conferences of up to 600 attendees, but they can enjoy a pleasant stay. Meals at 1501 Bistro can be had under a dozen ceiling-sized Chihuly chandeliers. Enjoy Starbucks coffee at Colbalt's, while appreciating Chihuly's art. The location is on the north side of Orlando, away from themepark attractions, but that may be a good thing.

DeanMurphy2020,

Thank you for the kind comments regarding your recent visit to the
Orlando Marriott Lake Mary and I am happy that you enjoyed the food,
art, and excellent service. I have to be honest, the Starbucks Coffee is
from Seattle but the Artwork was custom made for our hotel and was
created by a local Artist named Thomas Long from St. Augustine. Nonetheless
we appreciate you fine eye for art and hope to see you at future conferences!

All is fine with the hotel ,so comfortable rooms after a hot summer day at walt disney. That is good place to stay and have fun at Walt Disney and of course save money and time. The rooms and the bathrooms are so large and clean. The best month to visit Disney should be November I think

This is an ok Hotel. The staff is very nice and friendly. The room service is ok. I stayed here for business, I had no issues the room was clean and the hotel was very quiet. It has an older feel. I am not sure if I will be staying their again but if you want a clean place to stay..this is it.

I travel on business half the year and frequently stay at Marriott brand hotels. Comparing this Marriott to other Marriott's--> it's not as good because they don't provide many food options at the nightly concierge lounge reception. For instance, one night they just had meatballs, cheese, crackers, and chips and salsa. I've been conditioned by other Marriott's to expect pretty much a full meal. Most others have soup, salad, and hot entree-type item in addition to the other typical options. So, that was disppointing.

Otherwise, this is a pretty standard Marriott. It's a nice hotel, lovely decor, standard furniture. I will give them brownie points for an awesome night's sleep. It's away from the street, so there's been no street noise!

Overall, it's a good hotel choice. Last year I stayed at the Residence Inn and it was comparable in amenities. They're right next door to one another and luckily they're both walking distance to some awesome restaurants!

Thank you for your 4 Star rating and we hope to earn a 5th Star on your next visit.
I did pass your comments along to our Chef about the selection of food items
in our Concierge Lounge but truthfully it is never intended to be a Full Meal.
We are Happy that you had an Awesome nights sleep free of noise, and rated
us as a Good Hotel choice!
