    Missed the mark for an overnight stay

    We decided to try out the J.W. Marriott for this overnight stay this time vs. the Ritz-Carlton the last time we had to overnight in Orlando. While the facility itself was impressive, there were things that just missed the mark. On the top of the list were exorbitant additional fees. Valet parking wound up costing $57.51 (self park was not significantly less) and the resort fee was $53 that they so nicely pointed out is actually a "$261 Value"! - all for things I'd never use for my 1-night stay except for high speed internet that I get for free because of my Bonvoy status. As for my room upgrade that was subject to availability - I could have booked an upgraded room on the app while being told by the check-in clerk that upgrades were not available, suddenly became available with push-back. The suite that we had was in good shape and I presume was renovated within the past few years, however, the decor was very drab and depressing along with very dim lighting. I understand that decor is a personal preference and may not be a problem for others. We left a privacy tag on our door when we went out to dinner as we did not need turndown service or want anyone entering while we were away, and returned after dinner to find that a welcome amenity was delivered while we were out. Knife and Spoon was advertised as closing at 7pm and when we arrived at 5:15, we were told it closes at 5. We did have a very good dinner at Whisper Creek Farm. We also enjoyed the excellent breakfast buffet at Citron. This is not the place to stay for an overnight stay, however, if you're visiting with family/kids and want to take advantage of the waterpark and various amenities, by all means this is a great option.

    Great Staycation!_Great for kids

    We had a "staycation" with my 8 year old grandsons, and daughter. The property is beautiful, including the interiors and grounds are amazing, The boys loved the large water slides went up about 30 times, did not want to leave the property. The lifeguards at the slides were amazing and so kid-friendly. The staff was great. Only negative feedback is the Kitchen restaurant off the lobby, expensive and the food is not great.

    Home away from home

    We’ve been coming here ever since it opened. This is really one of those rare places that gets even better with time. Lazy river ist still amazing, propery well kept as ever. Food at breakfast restaurant is exceptionally good: I still drem of those chia oats. Kerima and Noel that work there: wonderful people that make this place so special. Thank you guys! If I have minor remarks, it is about leased restaurant on the property: Primio had terrible service and mediocre food- it is supposed to be posh and upscale. It is kind of sad that you cant get a plain burger at an american hotel.

    Great resort

    This is a very beautiful property. They have multiple restaurants here along with an amazing pool and slide area (not just for the kids but adult size, which is awesome). The service is great, staff is pleasant and the rooms are comfortable. Thank you.

    We love the JW Marriott but GET RID OF THE DAY PASSES

    We have come here for the last 5 years for the Memorial Day weekend and we always have a great time. However when you pay 600 for your room a night and you have to deal with over crowded pool and amenities because they sell day passes its ridiculous. Marriot these rooms are expensive and the food and drinks are expensive. Stay to true to yourself and your a luxury hotel please stop letting outside non-guest come. If they want to experience your hotel make them buy a room.
