The 516-room JW Marriott Orlando Bonnet Creek Resort will open the first quarter of 2020 at Bonnet Creek, a 482-acre, mixed-use resort community near the destination's famed theme parks; construction is set to begin later this year. Eighty of the guest rooms will be suites, including 16 two-bedroom units with optional connections to create four-bedroom family suites.
 
The hotel will have 50,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 23,000-square-foot ballroom. Other property offerings include an indoor/outdoor restaurant; a rooftop bar that will provide panoramic views of local evening fireworks; two pools; a spa with 10 treatment rooms; a fitness center; and an amenity deck where guests can play tennis, basketball and shuffleboard.

"This project is a testament to the strength of our brands, loyalty platform, best-in-class associates and relationships with visionary development partners."
