My family have stayed here 1-3 times a year over the last 6 years.located 20 minutes from the Orlando Action.
I don't golf anymore but did use the course 2 years ago and found it to be excellent and affordable as well. Deals are available if you stay at the hotel either JW or Ritz which are connected hotels but operate separately.
The hotel rooms were remodeled about 2 years ago from floors tiles curtains and other nice things in the rooms.
If you like your own coffee in the morning the coffee station is perfect which has everything you need located in your room.
The beds are my 2nd favorite mattress next to Heavenly mattresses which are my all time favorite.(Heavenly found at Westins).
Food in any of the restaurants or club room is excellent. The Chefs are first class here and you can see and taste the dedication.Service goes without saying... From the valet, front desk,wait staff,concierge and house keeping.These people are professional and excellent that's all I can say.
The workout facility with classes and spa has some of the best resources I have ever seen in hotels.
Why Stay? If your looking for that class of food,service and room and cost is not the main factor then the Ritz is for you.
Why Not ? This hotel is as you would say in the top tier of hotels.I don't stay here for business because of cost.But when I want to get away several times a year I spend the extra money to enjoy the excellence.
For any of you non-tippers out there you will not enjoy yourselves here.
Tipping is part of what you expect when staying at these Higher end hotels and it's how the staff makes a percentage of their needed income.
