We stayed in this hotel from 3/25-3/28 while we went to Disney World. My family has stayed at many Marriot properties, and I have to say this is one of the best I have been to! The hotel has a sort of sea theme to it (which makes sense since it's right by Seaworld). The lobby was nice and spacious, there was plenty of seating for the free breakfast in the morning. There was also an internet cafe, concierge desk, and it even had it's own Starbucks! The front desk was very welcoming (make sure to grab some Chupa Chup lollipops in the bowl by the desk by the way, they're good!).
The room itself I thought was very nice. It also had a sea theme to it (lots of blues and greens). When you walked in, there was a sitting area with a couch that made out to a bed, as well as a small fridge and microwave off to the side. A desk and some frosted glass separated this area from the two beds on the other side. The other part of the room included the two beds, a dresser, flat screen tv, spacious closet, and two bathrooms! Although the two bathrooms weren't both full bathrooms (one was larger and had a shower and large vanity, the other was smaller and just included a toilet and small vanity) I thought it was great. Both bathrooms were separated by a sliding frosted glass door as well. It made it easier in the mornings to get ready with two bathrooms since we had three people staying in the room.
Free breakfast was great in the mornings! There were lots of pastries, breads, fruit, scrambled eggs, bacon sometimes, and cereals. They had waffle makers, and even this quaker machine that made oatmeal. It was all the typical breakfast-y types of stuff, and I really couldn't say anything bad about it.
They had a pool area that we never visited, but it seemed good! There was a bar there I believe where you could get snacks and drinks. I'm sure younger kids and adults would both enjoy this.
I don't think we had any problems with the service. Everyone who worked there that we talked to seemed kind and friendly. The maids were outstanding! The rooms were always nice and clean, and we always got the extra towels we needed. One day our maid even made us a towel swan! The only thing I can sort of complain about in that area is that we went back to our room one day around 4:00 and the maid was still in the room cleaning, but I do understand that they have many rooms to clean in such a short amount of time, and it was really no big deal.
Also, the drive for us to Disney was not bad at all. It really only took a good 5-10 minutes to actually get to the parks, so don't put this hotel out of the running for you just because it's a little farther away. And if you're going to Seaworld, this would be an excellent choice considering how close it really is. If you enjoy staying in the nicer part of Orlando, this is definitely the hotel for you. There was a CVS and TGI Fridays very close to the hotel, so if you need anything or just need somewhere to eat, it is very convenient.
My only other complaint about our stay was that the beds were sort of uncomfortable. The pull out bed was apparently very springy, and the other two beds were not comfy in some areas. This wasn't such a big problem, and definitely doesn't affect whether we would come back or not, but I still think it's an issue.
All in all, we would stay here again in a heartbeat! It's great that we've found another Marriot hotel to be able to book at when we are in the Orlando area.
