Chic Travel Luxuries - Marriott World Center

Whether you are traveling alone, with friends, as a couple or with the kiddies, The Marriott World Center has something for everyone. I visited this fabulous destination, located minutes from Disney World, twice in the past five months with friends and am planning to return again in September. The World Center recently celebrated their 25th anniversary and the resort never looked better. 

The focal point is their amazing waterfall pool complete with water slide and Pavilion...and, oh yes a million gallons of water ~ HOLY COW! As a swimmer, a pool is a must for me when traveling and MWC has six including a zen pool which provides quiet relaxation. Golf, a spa, activities for the kids, comfortable and pristine rooms with private balconies and an array of packages make this the perfect chic luxury vacation destination.

I love the Marriott brand and this resort is one of the nicest I've been to, it is a level 5 and is much finer than some of the resorts which they rate 6.

Marriott World Center offers 10 restaurants and lounges including a Japanese Steak House and a Food Court which has many quick and affordable options for lunch and an outdoor eating area next to the waterfall pool...heavenly. There is a Starbucks in the lobby for your morning or afternoon caffeine fix (note this Starbucks does not accept Starbucks gift or gold cards).

I found a great deal for my September trip using AAA, code EA7 which is good at select resorts through December 31, 2011.  Note: I could not find availability using this code at too many Marriott resorts, but this one had several dates to choose from and included parking (typically $7 per day), breakfast for two each day (a huge savings) and a $129 room rate per night +tax. This special AAA rate amounted to $50 less per night than my April trip which didn't include parking or breakfast.

If you are planning a stay at this or any other Marriott, I highly recommend joining their rewards program and applying for their Premier card. The card has an annual fee of $65 (increasing to $85 in October), however, it includes a complimentary night each year in a Level 5 resort (i.e. World Center) plus other perks such as priority late checkout, bonus rewards points and 50,000 points after your first purchase (enough for a two-night stay at The World Center). In other words for $65-85, new card holders will receive enough points for a 3-night stay at this or many other Marriott destinations after their one-year anniversary and making a first purchase on the card.

The resort is a 10-mile drive from Kissimmee Amtrak and 15-miles from Orlando Airport. There is a Hertz car rental and private transportation service available onsite, however, we found calling a local taxi company saved us about $15 for a 10-mile drive.
