Good Family Fun...spring for the suite!

Very nice property. Lots of options for swimming and playing with small children. Dining options are expensive, sparse, and not that great for kids. Standard room was too small for our family, with two kids (1 year old in a crib and 4 year old in one double bed)...we upgraded to a executive suite for a couple of nights which fit our family much better (what is the point of a vacation if you and your spouse have to go to bed with the kids?!) I'd go back for sure, next time I'm going to check out the marriott condos across the street!

The only dining options are in the hotel and theyre not cheap, so make sure your room has a mini fridge not a mini bar and bring in your own snacks and easy lunch or breakfast items...

Beautiful property with excellent staff

The public areas of the J.W. Marriott were first class. The customer service afforded by all of the staff was beyond the normal higher class hotel experience. Our room was spotless,functional, and comfortable, but nothing out of the ordinary for a hotel of this class. The bath was the same. The pool area is spectacular; perfect for adults and children. The mojitos were quite good!

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.

Hotel review

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.

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.

We went to Discovery Cove and Sea World. It was on the same road as hotel and only took a few minutes to get there. That was great.

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.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

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.
