Just north of Downtown, this hotel is a gem for business guests, with a clubby, leather-chair-filled lobby, and easy access to the central business district, but it doesn't neglect families, who can occupy themselves at the nearby Orlando Science Center, Museum of Art, and Shakespeare Theater complex. The property has a full-service restaurant, high-tech fitness center, and rooms—a full renovation was completed in 2014—with deluxe bedding, work desks with ergonomic
chairs, and free Wi-Fi. The heated rooftop pool offers views of Downtown or Lake Ivanhoe and its jogging paths. A handful of small restaurants and antiques shops are close by, and a free shuttle runs to Downtown Orlando's clubs, the Amway Center, Center for the Arts, restaurants and even as far as Winter Park's Park Avenue.
