Construction set to begin on 516-room, JW Marriott Hotel in Orlando

Marriott International reported that the construction of the 16-story, $282 million JW Marriott Orlando Bonnet Creek Resort will begin in the fourth quarter.

The 516-room hotel will be built on the last available site zoned for hotel use in Bonnet Creek, a 482-acre, mixed-use resort community near Orlando’s popular theme parks. Marriott International’s turnkey management solution, Managed by Marriott (MxM), will operate the hotel when it opens in first quarter 2020.

The JW Marriott at Bonnet Creek is owned and developed by DCS Investment Holdings, a private equity group based in West Palm Beach, Florida. The company is owned by Dwight C. Schar, co-owner of the Washington Redskins and founding chairman of NVR Inc.

When it opens, the JW Marriott Orlando Bonnet Creek will offer visitors luxuriously decorated accommodations including 80 suites. In addition to two presidential suites, there will be 16, two-bedroom suites with optional connections to create four-bedroom family units.

The JW Marriott Orlando Bonnet Creek will have multiple food and beverage outlets, including an indoor/outdoor restaurant and a 9th story rooftop bar. The resort will include an expansive pool with decks and terraces and a pool area for younger guests.
