Best Hotels in Orlando: Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes

Courtesy of Ritz-Carlton, Orlando

No. 2 Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes

The relative isolation of this property on 500 acres of undeveloped, well-tended land about two miles east of SeaWorld results in a pleasing quiet otherwise unknown in these parts. A businesslike hotel with a surfeit of Italianate pink marble, the Ritz has 584 rooms spread through a U-shaped tower. Large California-meets-Italy rooms have king-size beds, chaises, and balconies; bathrooms have separate bathtubs and showers and Bulgari toiletries. Outside, there’s a pretty pool lined with spouting statues, a 40,000-square-foot spa, a Greg Norman–designed golf course, and an elaborate free-form swimming pool.
