Best Western Lakeside Hotel converts to Maingate Lakeside Resort

Richfield Hospitality will oversee a multi-million dollar renovation of the 475-room Best Western Lakeside Hotel as it converts to the Maingate Lakeside Resort, an independent hotel. The refurbishment will include upgrades to hotel rooms and public spaces.

Located at 7769 W. Irlo Bronson Highway in Kissimmee, Florida, the resort is just 1.8 miles from the main gate entrance to Walt Disney World Resort and just minutes South of Orlando. Guest rooms include cable satellite television with ESPN and the Disney Channel, high speed Internet access and refrigerator. Hotel amenities include three swimming pools and two children's swimming pools, exercise facilities, arcade and an on-site miniature golf course. Guests can choose from a variety of restaurants on site, and the hotel offers a ‘kids eat free’ program. Additionally, the resort features over 3,200 square feet of quality function space accommodating up to 100 people in its event rooms.

The Maingate Lakeside Resort is close to several attractions and activities including the annual Daytona 500, Firecracker 400, Bay Hill Golf Classic, Disney Golf Classic and Disney's Magic Music Days.
