JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes

Orlando’s refreshed luxury hideaway

Tucked away from the theme park-hopping crowds, JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes presents a more luxurious side to a Central Florida escape. Lush landscaping and chic alfresco eateries complement the elevated experience you’ll find within these walls, made all the more sumptuous with the recent debut of a multi-million dollar refresh. The recent renovation puts the focus on family time, with a brand-new waterpark, poolside restaurant and the introduction of multi-room family suites with bunk beds.

But it’s not all child’s play here. A reimagined lobby lounge and upgraded accommodations property-wide ensure even the most discerning Orlando traveler will find comfort here. Of course, all of the high-end hotel’s luxurious trappings remain, including an 18-hole Greg Norman-designed golf course and a 40,000-square-foot spa.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Newly debuted family suites make traveling with toddlers an actual vacation. A dedicated hospitality team provides a VIP check-in, coordinates your reservations and even provides age-appropriate amenities for little ones, from bath toys and mess-free markers to stuffed rocket ships.
  • For the ultimate Orlando escape, check into a newly renovated Presidential Suite. Top-floor views of the resort’s 500 acres can be enjoyed from your eight-seat dining room table and cozy living room, or you can work up a sweat on your private Peloton before relaxing in the deep-soaking tub.
  • JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes' new waterpark promises fun in the Florida sun for all ages. Waterslides and a lazy river are complemented by calm, cabana-lined lagoons and an Oasis VIP firepit lounge for a well-balanced aquatic experience.
  • When you stay at JW Marriott Orlando, you enjoy access to the entire Grande Lakes complex, which includes the 40,000-square-foot Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Ritz-Carlton Spa Orlando, Grande Lakes. Indulge in Florida-inspired treatments designed to whisk you away from the frenzy of a family vacation.
  • A convenient location between Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Orlando makes this high-end hotel a luxurious option for park-hopping groups, but lush, expansive grounds help the property retain an air of tranquility.

The Restaurants

  • Among the elevated upgrades is a redesign of the Mediterranean dining room Primo. Helmed by award-winning chef Melissa Kelly, the space focuses on farm-to-table fare sourced from the property’s Whisper Creek Farm and restaurant garden.
  • Inspired by the bounty of nearby central Florida farms, Whisper Creek: The Kitchen serves bistro-style fare with a wide variety of craft beers. Birria pork tacos, smoked brisket with strawberry-jalapeño barbecue sauce and sweet potato-crusted fresh catch are just a few of the highlights.
  • Newly debuted EvrBar provides a chic space to unwind with a cocktail and light bites at the end of the day. Grab a spot on the spacious terrace to bask in views of the sprawling Orlando resort’s gardens and lakes.
  • Poolside burgers receive a gourmet upgrade at the hands of chef John Tesar at Knife Burger. Handheld bites and fresh salads are served alongside a substantial selection of shaken and frozen cocktails.
