Best Marriott Resorts in Florida

13

Following my post “Best Hyatt resorts for winter and spring break in the continental United States” I intended to do the same for Marriott.  But then I started looking through their resort list and I was quickly overwhelmed.  Marriott offers more resort properties in Florida than Hyatt does in all of the continental United States (59 vs. 56).  So, rather than tackling all of the United States, I’ll break this down and start with Florida.  What are the best Marriott Resorts in Florida?

I used Marriott’s website to identify properties classified as resorts in Florida.  I added all 59 to a spreadsheet and recorded the hotel’s category (which determines how many points are required to book a free night), Marriott customer average rating, and TripAdvisor rating.

Table of Contents

Highest Rated Marriott Resorts in Florida

I thought I’d be able to sort by TripAdvisor rating in order to pick the 10 best Marriott resorts in Florida.  Then I’d use the Marriott customer rating as a tie-breaker.  That would be easy, right?  Unfortunately, out of 59 resorts, 42 of them have TripAdvisor ratings of exactly 4.5.  Luckily, Marriott’s own customer ratings are more granular.  So, I filtered to hotels with a TripAdvisor rating of 4.5 and then sorted by Marriott’s customer ratings in order to identify the 13 highest rated Marriott resorts in Florida.

Note that this list is missing all vacation ownership resorts because Marriott doesn’t publish customer ratings for those.  You’ll find a list of the best vacation ownership properties later in this post.

Methodology

Using Marriott’s website, I filtered to Marriott properties in Florida which were identified as resorts. For each of these 59 resorts, I then recorded the following information:

  • Resort Name
  • Hotel Category
  • Marriott Customer Average Rating (1-5)
  • TripAdvisor Rating (1-5)
  • Average price per night for a stay from December 26 to December 31.
  • Point price for the 5 nights from December 26 to December 31.  In the rare cases where point awards weren’t available, I recorded peak award pricing based on the resort’s category.

I then calculated the following:

  • Point value: (Nightly rate x 5) / (5-Night Award Price)
  • Point value description:
    • Point value <0.6: very poor value
    • Point value 0.6 to 0.8: poor value
    • Point value 0.8 to 0.9: fair value
    • Point value 1.0 to 1.2: good value
    • Point value 1.3 to 1.5: very good value
    • Point value > 1.5: great value

I sorted and filtered this data in various ways to generate the lists of best Marriott resorts in Florida which are shown above.
