The 6 Best Hotels for Couples and Honeymoons in Orlando

Jennifer Greenhill-Taylor | January 04, 2018

Whether you are looking for a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon destination or simply an escape from life’s daily demands, dozens of hotels in Orlando are ready to pamper and indulge couples and offer respite from the child-centric frenzy of theme-park holidays.


Castle Hotel, Autograph Collection

Why it made the list

A sophisticated refuge of white and silver, filled with art, this International Drive area hotel offers roof-top terrace views of Universal—and Hogwarts Castle—along with the nightly fireworks, and the 425-foot-tall Coca-Cola Orlando Eye observation wheel and its dining-and-entertainment complex. The courtyard's round, heated swimming pool offers a serene escape from the I-Drive frenzy. Two restaurants, Café Tu Tu Tango and Vito's Chop House, are connected to the hotel by a walkway, and Pointe Orlando, a popular dining, entertainment, and shopping complex, is nearby.

Rosen Shingle Creek

Why it made the list

Sitting amid 230 acres of subtropical landscape, including a cypress-fringed creek and a championship golf course, this award-winning luxury resort offers a golf academy, fishing, nature trails, four swimming pools, basketball and volleyball courts, and a huge spa. The architecture recalls the Spanish Revival palaces you find in Palm Beach, and the history of the area goes back to early Florida pioneers. Despite being near to the huge Orange County Convention Center, the acreage surrounding the resort ensures a serene stay.

Meliá Orlando Suite Hotel at Celebration

Why it made the list

This European style suites hotel near Celebration, a very walkable community conceived by Disney, offers luxe accommodations with plenty of space (most have a kitchen and separate bedroom). The small-town America feel of the town invites couples to wander around the lake, stop in for a meal at one of several excellent restaurants, or grab an ice-cream cone and just sit on a bench and watch the sun go down. Traditional holidays are celebrated the old-fashioned way in this town, and in winter, visitors can even experience fake snow-falls.

Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek

Why it made the list

Florida’s mild climate allows swimming and golfing all year round, thus this hotel complex is a great getaway for golfing couples who also want to be pampered. The full-service spa at the Waldorf, a 3-acre lazy river pool, and 12 restaurants ensure you don’t have to go far from your room to have fun.

Park Plaza Hotel

Why it made the list

This charming, old-fashioned boutique hotel on Park Avenue in Winter Park is reminiscent of New Orleans, with its fern and plant bedecked balconies overlooking the street. Couples can sit on the balconies and watch the café society pass by on Park Avenue, or stroll from one end of the charming street to the other, taking in world-class museums, boutiques, diverse eateries, and the lush landscaping of the 11-acre park itself.

Aloft Orlando Downtown

Why it made the list

This ultra-hip urban hotel, once a utilitarian, midcentury utility building, offers a sophisticated spot for couples or honeymooners. Just steps from the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, the Amway Center, and Church Street’s late-night clubs and watering holes, the Aloft also has its own restaurant and trendy bars. For daytime amusements, downtown offers art galleries, festivals, and Lake Eola, a 43-acre recreational area right in the center of town, where you can picnic by the water, enjoy a concert at the amphitheater, feed the resident swans or stop by the farmer's market on Sundays.

In the heart of downtown, this hip, urban hotel is steps awa Read More
