On the 16th of July I took a trip to Orlando World Center Marriot to enjoy the resort and have a good time with my kids and wife and before my trip I searched for nice pool resort hotels to have fun. I found out thru information that was provided to me online that World Center Marriot in Orlando had an amazing facility with nice resort pool that my family could enjoy. Once we got there, after I did an UPDATE on the room with the pool view, that the actual pool was under construction. All you could see was tractors and construction workers. There was no pool for myself and family enjoy with an exception of a small kids pool. What a shame!!! I was never advise and there was no information what so ever that the pool was under construction. It was the worst experience I ever had and wasted of vacation days on this hot summer with no pool. I've being in many Marriot resorts thru the country and never had this experience. Not to mention the poor room service that you could never get someone at front desk and It was really hard to get even toilet paper. Wow!!! Very disappointed!!! Read less

These people must recruit McDonald's rejects for front desk workers. They have no clue how to check in guest. Lines were over 75 deep waiting as the clowns are not trained. Then they say room in on 5th floor but elevators have no 5th floor button and they sent us to wrong tower. Then we find out both pools are closed for rennovation during… Read more
These people must recruit McDonald's rejects for front desk workers. They have no clue how to check in guest. Lines were over 75 deep waiting as the clowns are not trained. Then they say room in on 5th floor but elevators have no 5th floor button and they sent us to wrong tower. Then we find out both pools are closed for rennovation during the summer and they still want to charge a $35 dollar daily resort fee. Where is the resort? They have NO AIRPORT SHUTTLE, Not even a shared shuttle with other hotels . They dont seem to care about guests, Never stay here or you will go thru hell to check in. Told me total room charge with fees was 225.00 then billed my cc 265.45 , They have no maid service unless you request it. Talk about lazy. Using covid as an excuse doesnt work in FLORIDA. Read less

First I love the room. We stayed in the West Tower! It had hardwood floors in the room which I absolutely loved! The bathroom was super nice. The hot water was EXCELLENT which is unusual for a hotel and a pleasant surprise. The towels were nice too. Customer Service was awful from the beginning to the end.

First I love the room. We stayed in the West Tower! It had hardwood floors in the room which I absolutely loved! The bathroom was super nice. The hot water was EXCELLENT which is unusual for a hotel and a pleasant surprise. The towels were nice too. Customer Service was awful from the beginning to the end. Checking in the hotel the front desk clerk was nice but without information. He didn't tell us what to expect or not expect from housekeeping as to the cleaning of our room. 1) we were told that we must request our room to be cleaned. We did that the 2nd night and the room still wasn't cleaned. We did that the 3rd night still not cleaned. Our room wasn't cleaned until the night before we were checking out. Now they claimed Covid-19 protocols, but they came in the room, still doing what they called 'straightening up'. It was more like looking through and making up the bed. Why come in at all? We asked one of the hotel managers, Nicole, who told us after going through one lie after another, that she doesn't clean her bathroom at home. My husband told her that's nasty and she probably shouldn't be over the hotel. The concierge didn't have valuable information. If you asked ten people in the hotel the same question and receive ten different answers. The final straw for me was day of check out and I received a call at 5:28am that my debit/credit card had been turned in. I went down later to retrieve it, the front desk clerk was very unconcerned as I waited for her to find my card, she was extremely nonchalant and announced proudly, it's not here. After losing it a bit, I requested a manager. That was a little better because she listened & attempted to help, however, no one had any answers. Security called my room, not a cell phone and no one had answers or could even verify the call. My card was missing so it wasn't a prank. As the front desk clerk was on the phone, she pranced back and forth like a young lady talking to her boyfriend rather than an adult at work handling business. The bell hop sealed the deal for me as he came to get our bags for one room when we requested two carts. He complained the entire time and sealed the deal by yelling at us and even acting as if he wanted to fight. He said do you know how far your room was? We looked puzzle because the hotel is huge and it wasn't our fault we were in the West Tower?! Obviously he didn't want a tip which he didn't receive. I've always been a fan of Marriott Hotels and it is usually my first choice, but no more. Read less

I checked in after sitting on the tarmac for 6 hours. Hadn’t eaten all day and looked forward to a meal at the hotel. Checked it at 10:30pm and all restaurants were closed. The front desk helped me order room service (closes at 11:00pm) but it never showed up. There’s no food in the minibar (an empty fridge), there are no vending machines, no hotel shop, no nothing. I expect my hotel to be a home away from home. Otherwise I will stay at a motel. Don’t be fooled, this is a gigantic motel. And my room smells weird. Can’t wait to check out. Read less
