The Ritz-Carlton in Orlando is physically paired with a JW Marriott. While there for a conference we were not alone...several other moderate to large sized conferences were going on. There was never any time when we had to hear the other conference speakers or videos. The breakfast and lunch items we were served were 5-star quality and flavor. Our conference rooms were pretty standard and just fine. The restaurants at both hotels were high priced as is often seen with such convention oriented hotels/resorts. Primo at the JW Marriott was a great place to eat. After being there with my wife for the better part of the week we determined that despite being a pretty busy place it was a good place for a weekend get away. It did have a great spa according to my wife and others we talked to in the Orlando area. The golf course (didn't play) looked gorgeous and like many Florida courses with lots of water (and interesting wildlife). Our room was supposedly an upgrade though I believe that referred only to being on a very high floor. Otherwise it seem like a standard Ritz Carlton room, very comfortable, clean, great room service, and a winner. Bottom line...would return in a heart beat for a conference and strongly consider it for a couples weekend.
