Nice Hotel

Hotel was very clean and friendly. Room overall was comfortable and the grounds were very nice and family friendly. The price I paid was appropriate for the accommodations. On the down side, the staff was very friendly but poorly managed and lacked order. Room service menu lacked variety and was way over priced for the quality. Lastly, they were too aggressive with trying to get us to look into their point/time share program. Hotel was only close dinning options. With all the fine hotels in the area, I'll probably look elsewhere next time I'm in Orlando. However, for the price this would be a good backup.

Great family vacation place

We really enjoyed the lazy river and pool. We were on visiting for a weekend but will definitely come back. Overall experience was great except the outside pool dining experience - the flies enjoyed the meal more than we did.

Great oasis in Orlando!

This beautiful, isolated resort complex (just minutes from all the main attractions) seems so far away from all the craziness of the Orlando tourist areas. Very friendly staff, a lovely room, great fitness facility and spa, beautiful grounds. Really loved it, would definitely go back!

Weekend Getaway for Two

I decided it was time for a little "R&R" for the two of us. I didnt want to travel to the beach or deal with a B&B. JW Marriott came up as a possible choice. Good decision to stay here. It is a BEAUTIFUL hotel with great amenities and a friendly staff. Pool is gorgeous and the lazy river is.....well....lazy and fun. Convenience of the pool/bar staff is great and the food down at the pool is very good and reasonable priced. The main bar and the restaurants are convenient and the food is very good. The sushi bar in the middle of the main bar is a great touch and we made a lot of friends. On the downside there are a TREMENDOUS number of kids.....the hotel does "nickel and dime" you a bit. Valet parking is $25 per day, tubes for the lazy river are $7 each, drinks at the pool are astronomical, and carry plenty of singles because EVERYONE expects a tip. Valet, bell hop, pool waiters, servers, bartenders, housekeeping, etc. All in all a great weekend, not an "economy getaway" but really great. Id definitely go again.

Good Hotel to stay.

We stayed at the JWM for 6 days.A very good hotel with pretty good staff. However the prices at the restaurants were a bit pricy I felt.The poolside setup was excellent.

Overall our experience was very good. Pools are great, rooms are great, hotel staff is very nice. Food offerings leave something to be desired but are fair. We were supposed to get free children's meals with the price and never did get it or could find out how.

Great time at Orlando JW Marriott

Can't wait for my next vacation to stay at JW Marriott Grand Lakes. We stayed there for a week in April and enjoyed every day. One day it was raining non stop and my 8-years old was bored. We went to the Ritz and Marriott kids clubs and he had a great time there. Hotel grounds are beautiful, you can go for a walk and enjoy beautiful small lakes that surround the hotel. Lazy river and pools were lots of fun. During our week stay hotel never felt crowded. Room and bathroom were very clean. Breakfast buffet in the hotel is VERY good. Fruit selection alone included fresh raspberries, blackberries, slices of kiwi, slices of mango, watermelon, melon, pears, orange, strawberry, grapefruit etc. Everything was very fresh. Free shuttle bus to Universal saved us tone of money on the taxi. Shuttle was always on schedule, you just need to book an evening before you needed.

Wonderful family vacation

This was one of the best hotels we've stayed at. It's a beautiful place. But more important the staff was always polite and willing to help. The rooms where very clean and the bathroom sparkled. The food was delicious. It was a wonderful vacation.

Great hotel!

I stayed at the JW Marriott in Orlando for a professional meeting located on the grounds. I was a bit leary since some of the Marriotts I have stayed at are rundown and not very enjoyable. This hotel was not at all like those others in anyway. The lobby is gorgeous, the rooms were large and comfortable, the restaurants were very good and reasonably priced for a hotel. The lobby bar also had great sushi and drinks. The entire hotel must be fairly new and didn't appear to need renovation anywhere. Finally, the staff was great--well trained, helpful and friendly.

Just like the strip in Las Vegas, this hotel isn't far from the Orlando airport but all of the transportation is expensive ($50) as would be expected for a long commute. You might want to check into the different shuttles before you get there.

GREAT STAY!!!

We were at the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes for a family wedding close by. From start to finish, staff were not just friendly, they seemed to genuinely enjoy giving good service. Compared to other trips, this one was wonderful. Pool is excellent and an event all by itself. There are tons of things to do alone or with children.
