Property is located 7 miles northeast of Walt Disney World Resort and 4 miles southeast of SeaWorld Orlando
Daily $38 resort fee applies
The JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes is a comfortable, reasonably priced option that sits 7 miles northeast of Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Recent lodgers said this JW Marriott property is a good option 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 access (which the property's daily $38 resort fee covers). The JW Marriott Orlando's ballrooms account for nearly 80,000 square feet of on-site 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 resort 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' main pool, as the two properties share many amenities with each other. What's more, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and redeem points by choosing to stay here.
