We stayed here for 3 nights while attending a conference. I was impressed with the friendliness and knowledge of the staff, and with the food we enjoyed. The room was pleasant, but much smaller than I anticipated. And WiFi was $15.95 per day! I was very shocked at that.

Stayed for 4 night with my family. The hotel is lovely, we couldn't complain about anything but we felt that it was more of a conference hotel than a family hotel.
Very busy with conference attendees didn't see many kids.
Food is very expensive and the kids menu is really very dire !
Nothing vaguely healthy.
Our tea/coffee facilities were never replenished. We had to keep contacting housekeeping to refresh these each day.
The room was lovely with a great bathroom, we upgraded for an amazing view. The pool is fantastic. It's why I booked the hotel. But I wouldn't go back. The hilton at bonnet creek beats it hands down and it costs less.

Room Tip: It's worth paying more for a great view

We recently finished a 2 night stay at the JW and can't wait to come back! The hotel and rooms were fantastic, the setting, the food, and the service was top notch! Citron's breakfast and lunch were next to amazing, the buffet leaves nothing to the imagination. The vibe was great, its a perfect hotel for couples, with a great spa, great golf, and food all right there, no reason to leave, unless you are going to Disney of course! The property provides a respite away from the tourist and disney scene. So if you are going to Disney just be ok with a 20 min drive to the mouse. Got kid? they have a great pool and activities but the hotel is not cheep, so might be better to put the funds towards a disney hotel if that is the goal of the trip. The vineyard grill at the ritz is great the wine guy Chris rocks, so ask him to help u pick some wine out. If u are a AAA member look for deals to help with the costs, it really helps. Also tues are discount days at the spa, so keep that in mind. Above all the service was just fantastic, love loved this place!

My family went to Orlando on vacation and hotel hopped to stay at a few different properties. I chose the JW Marriott because of the excellent pools and lazy river. I figured we’d have a ‘down day’ and play in the pool (and not have to pay for a water park). Alas, the weather didn’t cooperate and it was too cold to swim, but the property was beautiful. I would highly recommend it for corporate events, business travel and incentive trips. It would also be lovely for vacation travel with older children. If I had it to do again, I would not have chosen the hotel for a family vacation with younger kids. While the hotel was lovely, I felt we were underdressed coming and going from theme parks and it was a long drive from the activities we wanted to do.

Room Tip: We had a lovely pool view on the 24th floor and my kids enjoyed mapping how the pools all connected!

This is a wonderful luxury hotel. The staff will go out of there way to meet your every need. Ratings: Beds - great; Pillows - very good, they really only have hard and very soft; Sheets - soft and comfortable; Towels - soft; View - great; Location - very good, only about 15 minutes to the Disney parks and 5 minutes to International Drive; Bathroom - great, there's a separate shower and bathtub and there's everything you need such as lotion, shampoo, mouthwash, conditioner, cotton balls, Q-tips, etc.; TV - great; Service - great; Valet Parking - good, can be a little slow getting your car so give them 15 minutes notice if you don't want to wait. Our grandson sums it up best, "This is the best hotel I ever stayed in, they even put chocolate on your bed every night".

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the view of the pool area and golf course. The little store in the lobby area st...

Used our Marriott points to stay here and were so pleased. Upon arrival the front desk staff were warm and welcoming and put us in a beautiful room overlooking the entire property with views for miles. The hotel is pristine and the grounds are too. It was quiet our first night in, but then the conference go-ers began arriving. This hotel was in full swing and the staff never missed a beat. Turn down service was exceptional. It was a treat to stay here, enjoy the pool area and be close to all that Orlando has to offer. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Higher floor with pool views are the best
