No. 1 Waldorf Astoria, Orlando
In Walt Disney’s wildest imagination he probably never pictured a Waldorf Astoria in Orlando. The newest member of the luxury brand is situated on 482 acres of pristine woods, meadows, and marshlands at the southeast corner of Walt Disney World, close to Downtown Disney and Hollywood Studios. The 498 guest rooms (171 of which are suites) are decked out in stylish modern decor and marble bathrooms. Suites feature balconies from which to view lovely Bonnet Creek and the Disney compound. For those who don’t wish to hang with Mickey and Minnie, there are plenty of other sideshows including Rees Jones-designed, 18-hole golf course, two resort pools, a plush Spa by Guerlain with 21 treatment rooms, and outposts of celebrated dining venues from the flagship Waldorf Astoria in New York including Peacock Alley, the Bull & Bear Steakhouse, and Oscar's Brasserie.
