JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort Debuts Major New Event Space

The JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort has debuted a brand-new meeting and events space, as part of a three-phase, $320 million renovation project that the resort kicked off in 2015. Now in the third and final phase, the resort is working towards the completion of their all-new adult-exclusive Lanai Tower with 93 adult exclusive guest rooms and suites and over 100,000 square feet of new pre-function and exhibit space ­ – all in addition to its beach and other outdoor spaces for open-air events with waterfront views. 

The largest of Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands, Marco Island is located on the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida. Travelers fly into the newly renovated Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers, and in about 50 minutes, arrive at the island. 

Opened March 28, the Lanai Tower meeting space exceeds 100,000 square feet. The Tower’s meeting and pre-function space is found on the first three floors of the tower and has two ballrooms, five outdoor terraces and numerous breakout rooms. As the signature space in the tower, the 30,000-square-foot Calusa Grand Ballroom will be found on the third floor overlooking the Gulf of Mexico with 24-foot ceilings. Full-length windows provide the pre-function space with natural light. The tower will also have the 17,000 square-foot Banyan Ballroom on the first floor with 22-foot ceilings and a Sunset Terrace providing a view of the beach and gulf beyond. Apart from the tower, the existing 10,000 square foot Palms Ballroom, located adjacent to the new SPA by JW, has 17-foot ceilings and waterfront views, and it faces 

The tower will also be home to a new restaurant, 10K Alley, a combination gastro-pub and gaming emporium. This venue will play host to elevated cuisine, over 60 Florida-brewed craft beers and barrel-aged bourbons, milkshakes and games like bowling, mini-golf, and dozens of gaming and virtual reality experiences. 

The JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort has also updated the culinary experience for their group and meeting guests. Each culinary component of the event is focused on fine dining and restaurant quality experiences, as opposed to the traditional banquet-style service, the resort said. The resort’s newly appointed Executive Chef, Eric Vasta, works with groups to customize a menu.
