Orlando Airport Marriott Lakeside

7499 Augusta National Drive
Orlando Florida 32822
407-857-6211

Often times, here in Orlando, we take our vast array of hotels for granted. We locals mostly think of other places to go outside of Orlando, or we keep an eye out for a great place to stay for tourists. Although it is very close to the Orlando International Airport, and is indeed a great place for tourists, the Orlando Airport Marriott Lakeside is a great place for locals to take a weekend getaway.

This property features 30,000 square feet of contemporary event space with on site meeting planners and catering readily available. Bike and fishing pole rentals allow guests to get out and enjoy the scenery around the hotel on Lake Michelle. Of course if fitness is your thing you can stay in shape with a 24 hour state of the art fitness center, or go for a swim in the indoor or outdoor pools.

When it comes to dining options, the locally sourced cuisine at Crimson Tavern presents an impressive array of delights for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I did a review of that fine establishment earlier in the year that you can see here. The restaurant can fit 80 people, the private dining room can seat up to 16, and semi-private dining on the upper deck is up to 30 guests.

Spacious rooms and suites boast soundproof floor-to-ceiling windows and pillow-top mattresses for a peaceful night's rest.

This was the view outside of our room, with a beautiful view of the pool and Lake Michelle.

Speaking of Lake Michelle, guests can relax lakeside, or you can make use of the free fishing poles to go fishing. We had a blast fishing off of the dock as well as at this nice and shady location.

The pool at Orlando Airport Marriott Lakeside is set up pretty nicely with a portion of it flowing inside next to the fitness center. In the inside portion of the pool, you will also find the hot tubs.

At night, the poolside area comes to life with fire pits and plenty of seating for a quiet romantic evening for your weekend or weekday getaway.

Located just a mile from Orlando International Airport, the hotel does offer a free shuttle service if you are visiting, but if you are an Orlando local, don't miss out on this gem in the Marriott portfolio. We really enjoyed our stay and slept like babies on those pillow top mattresses. Our day was filled with plenty of swimming, fishing, and poolside drinks with snack food provided by Crimson Tavern. It was a very relaxing stay and provided the perfect getaway, even if it was just a few miles from my house.
