Wonderful hotel, great location!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

This Marriott has all the amenities, services and cleanliness that one would expect from a fine hotel. Our rooms have always been well appointed with comfortable beds/pillows, etc. No complaints.

Unique Quality: The website makes this hotel look super POSH and and while it is very nice, it is comfortable ... not stuffy. We've been here on a company trip where we dressed nicer and since then, have been with family/children and we feel very relaxed in shorts and coverups. It is nice though, no swimsuits in the lobby, etc.!

The pool is the draw for us. We live in sunny, hot, humid Florida and this hotel's river pool is 80% shaded!!!! We get up in the morning and stay out all day with little worry of getting burned. It's a nice change! Also, floating around the pool and having a bartender standing around the river bend is pretty cool!

We've stayed 3 times and are going back at the end of this month. Our now 3 year old granddaughter goes each time and we love taking her here. In addition, on holidays they have activities around the pool, bounce houses indoors and out, live tropical music by the pool, fireworks at night and even a marshmellow roast! It adjoins the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes, so if you can't get in here, book there. You can use the pool and other amenities in both hotels.

The only negative is that there are no indoor dining areas for children. There is a buffet, but no cafes/casual. This created a problem the first time we stayed. During the day, you can eat by the pool, but at night....you pretty much have to go out, eat formal or eat buffet. A small cafe with burgers would be nice. There are close places to eat nearby, so that's really not a problem.

Take your own big tube to float on, or buy one there. It's yours to keep at $8. (I believe that's the cost.) Really a fun expereience! And they have specials all the time.

Directions: Very near Discovery Cove and Sea World. Great location NOT in Disney.

I always have an amazing experience with the JW Marriott, so I was expecting a good time when I booked this hotel, but the Orlando JW Marriott blew me away. I was in town for LASIK eye surgery and needless to say I needed a very chill place o recover.
The JW Marriott staff went so far out of their way to assist me. The rooms were able to pitch dark even in the bright of day. True to Orlando form, this hotel is awesum for kids with activities, pools and a lazy river. But its stellar for adults with a sprawling weight room which includes a Smith machine if you're serious about training, and on property Starbucks, Primo, a full service Italian restaurant for an excellent dining experience, large rooms and close proximity to the airport, downtown Orlando, Kissimmee, St Cloud and Universal City Walk. Its true that you can come to Orlando and have a terrific experience without ever stepping foot in the parks.
Every hotel experience depends on what you wanna get out of it. What I needed was a quiet, chill place to recover from a complicated surgery and for me the JW Marriott of Orlando was the perfect place. Its a sprawling, quiet, calming refuge with all the amenities you'd need in order to never have to leave the hotel property. Kudos to a very helpful staff.
