Club level access at JW/Ritz Orlando

Since these 2 properties share a spa and guests have access to both properties pools and restaurants, what is the policy on club level access?
The ritz is about $50 more per night.

If it is like every Ritz at which I have had the pleasure to stay, the Club Level is accessed only by those staying on the Club Level and possibly by some guests staying in suites.

Don't confuse the Ritz Club Level with the Marriott Concierge Level.

If the Ritz Club Level is only $50 more than the Marriott, book it.

The room is $50 more. Will have to see what kind of upgrade my status can bring. Ive stayed at an "Autograph Collection" Orlando Marriott property and got the access.

For the most part, your status will get you zilch at a Ritz.

Is that the Bohemian? Wasn't that a Westin at one point? How was it?

You won't get access to the Ritz Lounge with your Marriott status!

Usually a club room at a Ritz is about $100 extra per night. When we're at a city hotel (like in town here) and relaxing at the hotel the whole time, it is totally worth it. If you're at theme parks all day, it may or may not be worth it - the breakfast is usually wonderful! It is different than Marriott concierge, as the service is higher, the snacks are usually so much nicer, and alcohol is included (usually nice quality stuff, mimosas for breakfast!).

You won't get any points or night credit at a Ritz (darn) either, so if that is important, keep it in mind.

Yes, its a beautiful property, however a bit worn inside. The restaurant is top notch, constantly placing in the top 3 in the hotel restaurant catagory. They have certs. on restaurant.com.
The Ritz, in my case, has buffett breakfast for 2 included at the Vineyard grill, however, no points accrued there, compaired to the JW.
