Every one of the 1,010 accommodations has been reinvented to delight guests with serene and bright textiles and furnishings inspired by the lush grounds and lakes that adorn Grande Lakes Orlando. Seven new executive suites offer growing families the choice of two and three bedrooms featuring built-in bunk beds for teens and children, king-sized beds for parents, and separate living areas.
A Reimagined JW Marriott
Experience Welcomes Guests
The JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes was a part of a property-wide, multi-million-dollar renovation that has led to a thoroughly reimagined guest experience. The transformation includes a new, world-class waterpark, a celebrated poolside restaurant, an upgraded lobby lounge, the introduction of inspired executive family suites, and refreshed guest rooms and suites throughout.
Reinvented Rooms and Suites
A Grande New Waterpark
The new Grande Lakes Waterpark is sure to be a splash with guests seeking both rip-roaring family fun or exclusive relaxation and escape. Exciting and refreshing, Grande Lakes Waterpark features six distinct zones and is home to a lazy river, Headwaters Slide Tower with three waterslides, restful lagoons, and the Oasis VIP firepit lounge. There’s something for everyone, including a new poolside eatery.
Tasty Eats Poolside at Knife Burger
Renowned chef John Tesar’s steak and seafood restaurant, Knife & Spoon at The Ritz-Carlton, earned one Star in the inaugural MICHELIN Guide Florida 2022. Now chef Tesar brings much of the same tantalizing flavor poolside for creative and casual fare at Knife Burger. Guests can enjoy the best-tasting burgers in town without leaving the waterpark, all sourced from high-quality Texas cattle, and paired with favorites like crispy fries and handspun, frosty shakes.
Ever Delightful, Ever Inviting, EvrBar
EvrBar is the reinvented, re-energized lobby bar. Inspired by the nearby headwaters of the Everglades and the natural beauty of the lush grounds, EvrBar features signature cocktails, craft beer, and light bites. Located next to acclaimed restaurant Primo, EvrBar overlooks the new Grande Lakes Waterpark and is ideal for relaxing with your favorite drink.
Mediterranean and Italian Fare from Primo
Primo continues to be led by two-time James Beard Award-winning Chef Melissa Kelly, though the space has been redesigned and refreshed, including a completely new layout and a 50-seat terrace. The design incorporates Chef Kelly's notion of being stewards of the land and interconnectedness with nature. The inspired menu of the MICHELIN Guide Florida 2022-recommended restaurant focuses on a farm-to-table experience sourced by Whisper Creek Farm and the Primo garden.
