Property sits about 5 miles away from Walt Disney World and roughly 4 miles away from SeaWorld
Daily $35 resort fee applies

The JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes is a comfortable, reasonably priced option that's about 8 miles northeast of Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Recent lodgers describe this JW Marriott property as a good hotel for both business travelers and families (and even better, business travelers who happen to be traveling with their families). Many of the rooms have balconies, but past guests suggest asking for a room that faces the lake for the most scenic views. No matter which room you end up in, you'll find it outfitted with a coffee maker, a 65-inch flat-screen TV and wireless internet (which is covered by the property's daily $35 resort fee). Together, the JW Marriott Orlando's ballrooms alone account for nearly 80,000 square feet of meeting space, and there are also a few places on the grounds that can host business functions and special events. And what is any Orlando hotel without a stellar pool? The JW Marriott Orlando boasts a massive heated lazy river that's surrounded by palm trees. Or, guests can take a dip in the adjacent Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes' pool, as the two properties share many amenities with each other. What's more, Marriott Bonvoy members may earn and redeem points by choosing to stay here.
