Orlando has the most phenomenal hotels, dining and of course, activities!
Photos taken April 2017
We always take our kids with us on vacation, but we don't always want to stay in the most kid-friendly of hotels. When visiting the Orlando theme parks, we love to stay in a centralized location called Grande Lakes. About 20 minutes to 1/2 hour away from Disney World and even closer to Sea World, it's home to the gorgeous JW Marriott complete with amazing restaurants, large accommodations, and an AWESOME lazy river. Attached is a Ritz Carlton, a "sister" property of the JW Marriott brand which is gorgeous and luxurious.
In the past we've stayed at the JW Marriott, although the photographs below are from our photographer's recent visit to the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes to photograph the exciting Wine and Spirits 74th Convention. It's definitely on my bucket list to get back as a family and experience all of the familiar and new features this property has to offer.
Just look at the lobby of the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes!
The food is amazing at this resort. I love being able to sit in a lobby lounge for a small bite and people watch.
The views are also phenomenal from all of the rooms. From a 9th floor King Deluxe Room, there is a terrific view of Sea World and one of the beautiful swimming pools on the property.
Beautifully appointed and spacious rooms. These are perfect to get two adjoining rooms for a family of 4 or more.
