Fodor's Review

Built in the style of a grand turn-of-the-20th-century Florida resort, this huge building is meant to inspire awe: inside its enormous atrium, covered by a 4-acre glass roof, are re-creations of Florida destination icons such as the Everglades, Key West, and old St. Augustine. Vast meeting spaces mean lots of conventioneers, but families are definitely not ignored. The Cypress Springs Family Fun Water Park and Splash n' Screen movie events are just two of the family-friendly

entertainment offerings, and there are two other sparkling pools. Rooms continue the Florida themes with colorful, tropical decorations. Between in-house entertainment and the huge Relache spa, the hotel connives to make you never want to leave.
