“Very good experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We had a king sized room overlooking the pool. Although we thought the room to be a bit small at arrival, it was well designed and roomy enough to fit a love seat and an oversized chair. There was also a small balcony. The bed was very luxurious loaded with pillows and reading lamps above the headboard. The bathroom was spacious and offered all of the amenities needed. The hotel staff was always very polite, courteous, and very helpful. Primo Restaurant was delicious, and the hotel also has a Starbucks and another coffee shop next door that makes excellent breakfast sandwiches. We chose the hotel for its pool, and were not disappointed. Guests also have full access to the Ritz-Carton which is only a short walk connected via tunnels in the hotel, both inside or outside. The fitness center is state of the art. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend this hotel. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Request a room with pool view.

We have been staying at this property for many years. The rooms and grounds are kept in such pristine condition it looks the same as the day it opened. The lobby is clean and full of good energy, the front desk staff are true professionals. The grounds , including the pool and gardens transform you to a tropical getaway. The JW shares property with the Ritz, and we love to use the Spa at the Ritz. We've had everything from hair cuts to massages and always they are handled by talented staff members. Primo is our favorite spot for dinner. Local fresh ingredients with a changing menu. We stay in Orlando at least once a month and this property is our home away from home. Whenever we have to stay some where else in Orlando we are reminded how much we love it here. The kids activity list is enormous, we even did fishing this past weekend out on the Grand lakes. This is a not to be missed property.

Room Tip: Love to get a room with a balcony. Refreshing to have a breath of fresh air while in a room for a f...

My husband needed to stay here for a business trip so I tagged along and we stayed a couple extra nights Hotel was impressive. I used The pool and the workout room and it was impressed with both. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Larger bathroom and shower. The fridge in the room isn't exactly a fridge since it only gets to about 68°. The staff called it more of a cooler. Concierges were very helpful with all of our questions. Hotel is within walking distance to so many great restaurants and bars. There is also a grocery store right down the road. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in LA.

If your planning a large group for a meeting. This is a great place!

Service and rooms are great. Along with the food service.

All meals were ready on time as well as a wonderfull staff that would greet you by name when the would see your name badge.

Room Tip: Request a room on the lake side. Unless you enjoy a parking lot view.

I've been to lots of beautiful hotels. My husband travels a lot for work and I sometimes accompany him. Currently staying here to celebrate birthdays/baby moon . It's a very large property shared with the Ritz Carlton . It's feels very resort like with beautiful swimming pool with lazy rivers and beautiful landscaping. It's has such a pleasant aromatherapy fragrance when entering. This hotel has several dining options . I'm used to metro area prices and its no worse than anywhere else. I'm pretty sure this will be our go to hotel while staying in Orlando. The level of service is excellent. The food is above average with a full service Starbucks. My hubby used the gym which is located at the RC. I did not use the spa services. My husband is a gold member and the wireless Internet fee was waived. We also was given the option of free parking and 500 points. We chose the parking since it saved us 18 dollars a day. We love it here. Can't wait to return.

Great location away from the the Disney rush. The pool was excellent with lots of chairs. Staff over all was excellent except for the front desk. First time I have ever complained about checking into a Marriott. Front desk was not very friendly and non-accommodating with reservation that was booked. Manager refused to speak with me when requested ( standing 10 feet away talking about personal issues). All other staff were excellent. Food is very good and hotel was spotless. If not for front desk. I would highly recommend.

This is a large vacation/convention hotel located on the outskirts of Orlando, near SeaWorld.
Reservation: seemlessly made on line.
Check-in: a little understaffed for a conference but very fast and courteous.
Room: large, modern, well furnished and quiet, but quite a hike from the elevators. Great shower and bathroom. Nice flatscreen TV. Comfortable bed and high quality linens and towels. NO refrigerator however.
Pool: great for lounging. BUT the lap pool is only open free of charge from 5 am - 9am...not too good if you have breakfast meetings unless you want to get up before dawn. Otherwise, it is THIRTY dollars to use. That's right $30!~~~
Internet: fast enough, but once again $10 per night AND even if you pay for it it doesn't work in the conference center attached to the hotel. It is free in the lobby however.
Parking: for surface lots, expensive even if you self park.

Room Tip: Ask to be close to the elevator banks unless you like to hike down LOONNNGGG corridors.
