Let’s take a look at the top hotels in Orlando and why we like them.

Meeting organizers are constantly on the lookout for the best hotels in every city (if you need help with site selection and negotiation, let us know!) and Orlando remains a favorite among corporations as a premier convention destination.

With a convenient airlift from most of the country, world-renowned theme parks, a vibrant culinary scene, and beautiful Florida sunshine for most of the year, this location offers an ideal setting to consider for your upcoming conference.

Why we like it: It’s near Disney but doesn’t feel like Disney

Walt Disney World has always been a popular choice for attendees considering a conference in Orlando.

This hotel offers the captivating appeal of being near Disney, yet its interior design is centered around professionalism, featuring a minimalist aesthetic and sleek lines.

These thoughtfully designed spaces are ideal for branding and cultivating the desired atmosphere for your conference, all while maintaining a distinct separation from the Disney experience.
