Great Hotel but ou pay for it.Posted Jan 5, 2015
Accommodations, food, staff and all amenities were really great...except for transportation to Disney. They were late and some drivers weren't very competent. Overall great experience but pricey for what you get.

Overpriced; fees upon fees! Look beyond room cost!Posted Jan 3, 2015
Pros: The grounds are very nice and the pool is a wonderful asset to the property.
Cons: The rooms are very small. Be prepared to be stepping all over your personal bags if more than one of you it traveling. Shower disappointing.
Location: The property is cut off from anything close. Walking to anything nearby is an option only if you like walking more than 3.5 miles (round trip).
The JW Marriott is a high-end hotel, no question about that. However, If you are looking for value, look elsewhere. The hotel is nicely appointed and staff very attentive. The room was small however, and the food was "over-the-top" expensive. If two of you are staying (for example) be prepared to pay from $60 to $150 per meal, even for the most basic salad, sandwich or soup. Walking to a nearby off-property restaurant is not an option either because this hotel is cut off from the rest of the city unless of course you have a rental car and are willing to pay $30/night to self park. There's also a mandatory 20% gratuity in many instances for services. Expect to pay a premium for other services such as tennis, golf or guided tours. If you are the type of person who feels better when paying more for things, then this is the place for you. Five star prices will be paid for 3.5 star food.

Nice Family VacationPosted Jan 2, 2015
Pros: Beautiful pool area, several pools connected with canals. Kids had a blast.
Cons: More dining options in the hotel, there are just 2 restaurants in the hotel. The Rooms appear a bit jaded, closets and carpets old.
Location: close to MCO and all major parks. about an Hour from beach
Excellent resort, less than 30min from all major attractions.

December in OrlandoPosted Jan 1, 2015
Pros: Pool was awesome - lazy river. Beautiful grounds. Internet speed is fast (but, not free). Nice wine selection in restaurants and lobby bar.
Cons: Remove basic tasks from concierge responsibilities. They are too busy assisting guests with park tickets. Front desk should have # for taxis
Location: Universal Studios - free shuttle
Very nice, upscale hotel. The location is daily close to both the Airport and Universal. Large complex and includes facilities at the Ritz Varlton. Cons: 32.00 for breakfast buffet. Concierge is tasked with too many responsibilities. Pillow top mattress is too soft. Internet is not free. No items in mini bar.
