Wyndham Orlando Resort, a hotel on International Drive in Orlando, Fla., revealed its new name, Wyndham Orlando Resort International Drive, which accompanies a multi-million dollar re-imagination that ushers in a new era in its 40-year history. With anticipated completion in October 2013, guests will continue to see changes unfold in coming months before the grand re-opening.
In addition to the new name, the hotel will unveil a revamped look for all 613 guestrooms and suites, adorned with modern, "resort-chic" decor.
The revitalization also includes an enhanced guest arrival experience with a path leading to a grand porte-cochere and newly constructed lobby with views of a Grand Lawn, complete with manicured greens. The creation of 60,000 square feet of meeting space will host events, while renovated indoor function space -- now unified into one building for ease and convenience -- allows meeting attendees to stay connected with the addition of a technology lounge.
Wyndham Orlando Resort International Drive will be positioned as a center of attraction, with the addition of surrounding I-Shops, bringing hosts of new dining and shopping options, as well as development of I-Drive Live, including the Orlando Eye (inspired by London Eye Ferris wheel), Madame Tussauds Wax Museum and SEA LIFE Aquarium, planned for one block away.
