Starwood Hotels and Resorts is opening its third Element hotel in Florida with an Orlando hotel.
Element Orlando North is scheduled to open in July 2015 as part of the redevelopment of Orlando Fashion Square on Colonial Drive. It will be the brand’s third hotel in Florida following Element Miami International Airport and Element Miami Doral. Owned by a joint venture between UP Development, StaySharpe and LBK Hotel Ventures, Element Orlando North will have 151 rooms.
Element Orlando North will rise eight stories, built above remodeled shops and restaurants at Orlando Fashion Square on Colonial Drive. Located 20 minutes from Universal Orlando Resort and less than 30 minutes from Walt Disney World Resort, the new Element is across the street from Orlando Executive Airport and three miles from the central business district of downtown Orlando and the Amway Center. Also nearby are the neighborhoods of Baldwin Park, Thornton Park, Audubon Park, College Park, Winter Park and the Mills & 50 District, as well as numerous golf courses.
