JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes Review

With more than 70,000 square feet of meeting space, this lush resort caters to a convention clientele, but leisure-seekers and families are certainly not ignored: a European-style spa, a Greg Norman–designed golf course, and a lazy river–style pool complex offer plenty of family fun. Rooms have ergonomic workstations and flat-screen TVs. The organic garden supplies the restaurant with produce. A long hallway connects the hotel to the Ritz-Carlton, where Marriott guests may use room charge cards in restaurants and shops.

    Warm and welcoming

    The JW is a gem in Orlando. The hotel shares some of the same imenities with the Ritz Carlton, which it shares property with. The valets were gracious and the front desk staff welcoming. The lobby is grand and lime with marble. There are numerous shops and restaraunts on site. The rooms are spacious and elegant. Bed linens were superb. Clean and charming. The pool area includes a wandering river that gently floats you around the amazingly landscaped grounds. The golf course is brilliant. My score is still a hot topic for me. The JW is within driving distance of Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World and Discovery Cove. Shopping outlets along with supermarkets are close by. The JW shines even though it is in the shadow of the Ritz Carlton. My family and I will be returning this winter.
