We’ve stayed at this JW Marriott on a few different occasions, and it’s by far one of our favorite places to visit. The lobby is beautiful, the rooms are very comfortable and the grounds of the hotel are gorgeous. Our favorite part of our stay is always the pool. We spend hours floating around the lazy river and enjoy ordering lunch and drinks poolside. You definitely feel like you’re on vacation when you’re here, and we can’t wait to come back! Read less

The person (Cody) that delivered my room service at 2am after a flight that was delayed over 3 hours made my day/evening... they didn’t have to do this. Very nice touch. Can’t get better than a hand written note.

I can understand people who aren't staying there paying for parking, but hey what do I know. a nice stay over all. Read less

My fiancée and I recently visited this hotel for a long weekend. There are so many things to do and restaurants to visit you technically don’t have to leave. The pool area is fantastic for both couples and families. The pool provides free tubes and the round trip through the pool takes about 15 minutes. Lots and fun and you can take your drink with you. The only downside were the bugs. While they are harmless and don’t bite...they are annoying and the flag you use to signal you would like pool service also can double as a handy bug swatter. Other than that this place has it all and we would definitely visit again. Read less

I plan lots of events all over NA and this hotel has the best staff! Jessica was my main sales contact and she very accommodating and always pleasant to work with. She was happy to help in anyway. She went above and beyond in many circumstances to add an additional meeting room later in the planning, change headcount, and even got my package to Fed-ex with my label since we were running late to the airport after our meeting! I cannot say enough great things about her and their AV staff. They have a very large AV group (PSAV) available and on the ready for anything you may need. The hotel and property was stunning, clean and offers a lot on site. The food was wonderful as well. Honestly one of the best experiences I have ever had planning a meeting and I've been doing it for 20 years! Hotel and staff were luxury level but, not the price! I had team traveling from around the world for our meeting and all had glowing remarks. You cannot go wrong with this hotel or their staff! It was a wonderful experience all around. We will definitely be going back! Read less
