Having welcomed over 62 million visitors in 2015, central Florida needs lots of beds for them to sleep in. Thanks to a new partnership between the Canadian Delta Hotels chain and Marriott International, the first Delta Hotel has opened in Orlando, Florida.
For Americans unfamiliar with Delta Hotels, they have 136 properties in more than 35 locations across Canada and are known for offering travelers a comfortable, dependable and stylish place to stay at budget-friendly rates.
With 241 rooms and suites, the new property is not just in Orlando, but it is the closest non-Disney hotel to the Walt Disney World Resort. After a busy day at the theme parks, families can chill out at the Delta Orlando Lake Buena Vista which features an outdoor heated pool with cabanas, a whirlpool and a 24/7 fitness center. Opening this summer will be the Splash Zone where kids can spray each other with water cannons on a pirate ship-designed water play area. If it gets chilly, the outdoor firepit will warm up the family. The Kid Zone is an indoor play area with PlayStation 4, Wi U, Foosball and board games.
The rooms are crisp, clean and comfortable and most offer two queen-size beds; larger rooms are available. Complimentary high speed internet access is available in the rooms and common areas. The guest laundry is a real convenience. There is a full time concierge and Walt Disney World Resort tickets are sold on site, saving you time and having to stand in line to purchase your tickets at the park. There are complimentary shuttles to WDW, and shuttles to Universal Studios Orlando and Sea World Orlando are available for a nominal fee. The decor is very modern, yet inviting.
On site dining and beverage options are at the D-Flats Restaurant, a bar, Peet’s Coffee Shop, Room Service and from the small shop in the lobby.
Family golfers will enjoy six area courses. Family Shoppers will enjoy the two nearby Outlet Malls and Mall of Millenia.
The Delta/Marriott partnership plans a global expansion of the Delta brand with 80 properties in the US, Europe and China, beginning in New York, London and Shanghai. Marriott Rewards Members discounts apply.
