Waramaug Hospitality, a private investment group, completed a total renovation of the Sheraton Orlando North led by VOA Orlando. The 389-room property underwent a makeover totaling $4.5 million, or $12,000 per room.
The work included all new guestrooms and bathrooms, corridors, club lounge, public spaces and lobby, meeting rooms and conference facilities. The property also upgraded its exterior and landscaping. Guests staying at the hotel can now enjoy the new coffee outlet added to the lobby located adjacent to the Sheraton Link, while staying connected with Microsoft PC terminals and complimentary Internet access.
The renovated guestrooms now come complete with a Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed, dark mahogany and walnut furnishings, an oversized desk, mini refrigerator and LCD flat panel television.
In conjunction with the renovation, the traditional Irish pub An Tobar – which closed in 2005 – was re-launched. An Tobar has a 60-foot solid wood bar and three levels of Dublin streetscape decor, all constructed in Ireland and reassembled by Irish craftsmen at the property.
The hotel has 19,000 square feet of meeting space that can accommodate up to 900 people. It also has a 7,500-square-foot Grand Galaxy Ballroom with a 15-foot high ceiling.
Other facilities include a business center, concierge floor with private lounge, Sheraton Fitness and outdoor pool with fountains and Jacuzzi. Similarly, available is a dining venue encounter under the glass-domed Atrium.
Waramaug Hospitality is a privately held investment group focused on acquiring legacy branded assets throughout the US.
