The hotel

An oasis right next to Walt Disney World, the Orlando World Center Marriott has fun-for-all down to a tee. Whizz down the waterslides, and take a dip in one of a choice of pools — kids will go crazy for the splash zone! Treat yourself to some R&R in the spa, or have a round of golf. You’re spoilt for choice with places to eat, you won’t need to head out to find some good food. And when you’re ready to hit the parks, you’re just a short drive from Orlando’s adrenaline-packed coasters.

They have the rudest and most inconsiderate managers that don’t know anything about customer service. If your flight arrives in the middle of the night, they charge you for the previous night!!!! I called a month and half in advance about the situation and the lady told me they don’t charge for the previous day and it’s for the day of arrival… Read more
They have the rudest and most inconsiderate managers that don’t know anything about customer service. If your flight arrives in the middle of the night, they charge you for the previous night!!!! I called a month and half in advance about the situation and the lady told me they don’t charge for the previous day and it’s for the day of arrival despite the time. I went over the arrival times with her. Flight was booked and then on arrival at 2am the following day they said they will be charging for the previous night!!! How is that fair??? Why say one thing over the phone and then something different after a 10 hour travel day and then not be considerate for the customer???? Managers Aquasia and Tim were very rude and and don’t understand customer service skills! Monica was very pleasant and tried to help the best she could!! If it’s a policy then make sure all your staff is aware so customers that pay and travel far don’t get misled and treated horribly. Read less

I recently spent 4 nights here for a conference. The hotel is nice - there are lots of activities to do.

I recently spent 4 nights here for a conference. The hotel is nice - there are lots of activities to do. They have a nice large pool, golf, an arcade for the kids, a mini water park with water slides, and a really nice convenience store that sells just about everything you would need. My only complaint is the lack of restaurants for a hotel this size. The conference had about 2,000 attendees and some of the restaurants were closed on certain days so there was not enough places for all of us to eat without us having to catch an Uber or taxi to go elsewhere. The grounds are so large, that it would be difficult to walk somewhere to get something to eat. Other than that, the hotel is nice and is perfect for families wanting to visit Disney World as it's right down the street. Read less

We have just come home from a 2 week (yes 2 weeks!) stay here and we had a fabulous time! We were worried about other bad reviews and even considered changing hotels but we are so glad we didn’t. The aim of the trip was to do Disney and Universal, mixed in with chill days at the pool and the resort worked well for this. Sure - the resort is huge! And more staff would always be beneficial (the whole world is short staffed right now!) however all of the staff we encountered were excellent and always super friendly. We went during a very quiet period (on purpose). There were several conferences on but we were always able to do what we wanted. You are not going to get personal service at such a large resort so adjust your expectations and you will have a fab time. 1. Very quick check in and check out. 2. Great location for the parks, used the transport to and from Disney and easy to get Ubers to Universal 3. Good food options: pantry is excellent, everything you need. We enjoyed Falls poolside bar and grill, great couple of bar meals at the sports bar High Velocity (big shout out to Irish Patrick for making our first night great fun!) and also loved Siro. Fab breakfast at Longitude and Latitude. Also Starbucks as a bonus. A couple of gift shops which also stock more snacks/drinks/any drugs you may need. 4. Pool area absolutely fantastic. Very quiet mid week, always plenty of beds, great quick service (especially Nick!) for drinks/food. Pool is zero entry and has a sun shelf too. Bliss. Yes music can be loud at times which is not necessary but you just don’t sit near the speakers! It never stopped us reading/sunbathing. Kids activities never interrupted our use of pool area. New water slides and lazy river area was great fun, also has a drinks bar. 5. Rooms are modern, clean, comfortable and spacious. Good wifi. We had housekeeping call in every day but not a full service each day, just topping up towels/water etc. full clean provided when we requested it in advance. We stayed in east tower, great location. Only issue was a very loud air con unit outside, so loud we couldn’t use our balcony but we were down by pool anyway. We arrived back to the room on the first night to an unexpected surprise welcome gift for booking via BA, thank you!!! Overall, a great stay and would wholly recommend it especially for those visiting the parks and want an excellent pool area. Visit outside of national holidays for a great experience. Thanks to all the staff trying their best. Read less
