ACCOMODATION IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA. Marriott Orlando World Center Resort & Convention Center
The world's largest Marriott with 2,000 rooms has an abundance of amenities, including two children's pools, six swimming pools and a 106-foot waterslide, a play room off the indoor pool with games, toys, videos and a TV; a video arcade with ping pong and air hockey; ; and organized daily fun like pool games, bingo, and craft projects.
Guests can enjoy the next-door championship golf course, Hawk's Landing Golf Club, or pamper themselves at the resort's spa. Children have their own activity center and the resort offers family friendly activities
There are comfortable rooms for families of four. Two double beds plus a small sofa that converted to a second bed gave the layout a junior suite feel. A flat-screen TV shared space on the long desk with a minibar.
The bathroom, also, is well-planned for more than one person with the bathtub/shower combo and toilet in a separate room; outside, a wide vanity with plenty of counter space held a single sink. Lightweight waffle robes in the closet were a nice touch.
The breakfast buffet at Solaris is a lavish affair, with an abundance of fresh fruit, an omelet station, and a continental breakfast/International section with smoked salmon and prosciutto. There are other restaurants ranging from sushi and Teppanyaki at Mikado to Italian at Ristorante Tuscany, to steak and seafood at Hawk's Landing. There is a Lobby Bar and Terrace, which serves up martinis and lobster quesadillas along with a view of the palm-tree-lined swimming pool.
Older kids slid repeatedly down the water slide, while parents of younger children relaxed by a hedge-protected sandy play area (the younger children adored it). Several hot tubs were popular, including one in a grotto surrounded by dramatic waterfalls on three sides. Every hour or so comes an announcement of a new supervised activity (like "spin art" and "key ring craft") kids can do. In between, little kids can find plenty to love about the children's air conditioned activity center, which has creative toys, books, TVs and games. Adjacent is a large, well-lit arcade older kids adore.
Waterfalls, rock and palm trees bestowed a relaxing atmosphere and affordable options await just inside the hotel off the pool, where a food court had a variety of affordable fast-food options (pizza, burgers and hot dogs).
Marriott Orlando World Center Resort & Convention Center is located adjacent to the Hawk's Landing Golf Club.
