We spent a week at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando again this year! I can not saying anything but how wonderful the service is at this hotel! From the maids to the waiters, they go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need and want. The room was very nice and it helps to have maid service twice a day, especially if there are more than 2 sharing a room.
The weight room has a lot of equipment to work out on. I usually went there around 10:00am when it was less crowded. There is a paved trail between the lakes and the hotels (JW Marriott is connected to the Ritz), which measures about a 2 miles from the Ritz to the end and back.
Our favorite restaurant was the Vineyard Grill at the Ritz! We ate there 3 different nights. Ask for Mounir as your server, as he is fantastic! The Ritz also has a little coffee stand set up by the lounge in the morning. Two large cups of coffee will run you about $5.65. They also sells muffins.
There was entertainment in the lounge Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
Be sure to ask about any specials they have listed on the web site. We saw they have wine or special drink tastings on Friday's evenings, but when we showed up, we found out it had been cancelled for that evening.
Also, listed on the spa menu is a teenage massage, they no longer provide this treatment.
