Orlando World Center Marriott completed phase one of its multi-million dollar transformation. Enhancements were made to the North Tower guestrooms and meeting space, Hall of Cities meeting rooms, 110 guest suites, on-site Starbucks and an expanded pool deck and lawn for poolside events and activities.
Various undertakings were done for the phase one project. Five hundred and four guestrooms and 10 suites in the property’s North Tower have been completely renovated including all soft goods and casegoods. Additionally, the 13 meeting rooms in the North Tower - offering nearly 14,000 square feet of total meeting space - have all been refurbished including carpet, vinyl, new air-walls and electronic door cards.
Orlando World Center’s 14 Hall of Cities meeting rooms, which are the gateway to the hotel’s 230,000-square-feet of ballroom space, present a fresh new design.
Located in the lobby, the on-site Starbucks has been redesigned alongside 110 guest suites, which have been remodeled with a contemporary design. With nine different suite types, options range from the 4,000 square-foot International Suite located on the 28th floor to the 477-square-foot Promenade Suites located near hotel restaurants and pools.
Also refurbished is the new pool deck that has high performance pavers, a tiered seating layout allowing each deck chair an optimal visual and circulation connectivity to the main pool, while the outer edge of the pool deck rises to meet the lawn area.
Orlando World Center’s new upgrades are the beginning of a multi-faceted overhaul to the destination. The 200-acre tropical oasis will remain in full operation throughout phase two of the renovation, currently underway. Phase two will enhance the Falls Pool inclusive of a poolside Bar and Grille, Splash Zone offering kids a zero entry pool and playground, as well as a new Icon Slide Tower with two, 200-foot winding waterslides and one, 90-foot speed waterslide, in addition to a Kid’s Activity Zone and urban Italian restaurant, Siro. The slide tower is slated for completion June 1.
