This five-story hotel in Celebration, Florida, offers easy access to Orlando’s theme parks and attractions: Walt Disney World is just two miles away, and Universal Orlando is 13 miles. The round exterior follows Celebration’s classical design scheme in yellow stucco with white woodwork and a brick façade. The interior gets more creative, with rich mauve accents and Spanish Impressionist murals on select walls that point to Melia’s Spanish roots.
Bed and Bath
This all-suite property has 240 spacious units with one or two bedrooms. Suites come with full kitchens that feature stainless steel appliances, toasters and microwaves, plus white ceramic dishware. The property draws a mixed clientele of business travelers, families and extended-stay European guests. The decor is simple: King beds with white duvets and striped headboards, living areas with brown leather couches, side tables, and round dining tables with four chairs. There are small flat-screen TVs in the living rooms and bedrooms, and tubs in all the bathrooms, along with Melia brand amenities.
Inside the Melia’s round exterior is a large central courtyard with a circular zero-entry pool that follows the lines of the hotel. An island hot tub and deck space with ample chairs and tables make it easy to hang out, and the pool stays open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Just off the small lobby is the restaurant. The downstairs gastropub offers tapas, including camarones al ajillo and ham croquettes. A curved white staircase leads up to Fuego, the formal restaurant, which is open for à la carte breakfast and dinner. Try the grilled New York strip steak with porcini butter, paired with one of the Spanish wines available by the glass or bottle. And, although not part of the hotel, guests also have access to the Celebration Golf Course, co-designed by the Robert Trent Joneses, senior and junior, as well as the three-level Celebration Health Fitness Centre & Day Spa, which has an indoor lap pool, a spinning studio, a Technogym and Life Fitness equipment, as well as a full-service spa offering Eminence treatments. An on-demand courtesy shuttle makes stops at the golf course and fitness center, as well as a Publix grocery store and downtown Celebration.
In the Area
A courtesy shuttle offers scheduled drop-off and pickup service at Disney World’s Epcot (which is connected to the other Disney parks via the monorail), along with Universal Orlando, Seaworld Orlando and the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores. Or stay close and explore Celebration, the New Urbanist planned community built by Disney in 1994. Multiple walking and biking paths lead through open park space and down picket fence–lined lanes. The Norman Rockewell–esque downtown features a pretty lake and a few blocks of shopping and restaurants. Don’t miss the Spanish-Cuban paella at Columbia, an outpost of Florida’s oldest restaurant.
How to Get There
As a global travel, I look for location, security, cleanliness, staff attention, feeling of satisfaction with consistency. I have stayed at the Melia Orlando Suite Hotel now my 5th time. This property has high marks for all. I commend the staff for attention to the guests experience from the reservation, front desk at check-in to check-out.
I will continue to stay at this property.
Thank you to all staff!
We have stayed at this hotel a number of times over the past couple of years and loved it. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for this stay. The woman at the front desk GUSHED about how this was the best room they had - even pointing out that it had 2 balconies! I had asked for an exterior room on my reservation but she convinced me this room was AMAZING so I went with it. We get to the room (which was at the furthest room down the hall from the elevator), get all of our things into the room, and start unpacking. Almost all of the dresser drawers were broken (one even falling out on my daughter), the layout was cramped compared to rooms I’ve had in the past (and it only had 1 balcony). After unpacking, I went to look for vending machines for snacks for the kids. Apparently, management removed all vending machines from the premises. The restaurant was closed and there is only 1 ice machine and a filtered water machine on the second floor of my building. My guess is that this is how they force you to buy the snacks they offer in the rooms (which - in sets of 2 - don’t work for a large family with kids). Eric at the front desk was kind enough to offer bags of chips for the kids and offered me a new room when I told him about the issues with the furniture and cramped layout. We chose not to move because everyone was already unpacked, tired and it was late. The room was clean and overall it was fine. Just the daily frustration of broken furniture and a mile long walk to their “best room” was pretty annoying. Shop before you check in and get an exterior room.
Thank You so much for helping our family choose the perfect room after a 13 hour drive. We were exhausted and cranky and Asmaa made our check in nice and smooth!! She gave a quick and efficient tutorial on the resort and sent us on our way!! This review is strictly because of the fantastic service we received.... I am on hour 1 and wanted to make sure I gave credit where it was do.
Our stay was flawless! The moment we checked in, Nicole gave us the best first impression with her smile and friendly demeanor! We travel a lot and have experienced a lot of front desk staff. She is by far the best!
The suite had a large fridge with some snacks for purchase and a table, couch and balcony facing the beautiful pool area. The pool view is the best view here.
The bed was comfy with nice bedding.
Checking out was flawless, as well! Eliana was very helpful with the business center, helping me get something printed and checking us out.
We will definitely be back!
All the employee was very friendly, considerate, always smiling, love their attitude which was very respectful and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and families if they go to Florida
