Why Stay At The Peabody Orlando
Though Orlando's Peabody hotel is enormous in size (1,600 renovated rooms; three-acre pool area; 12-room spa) and convenient to mega-destinations such as Disney World, there are a handful of surprising touches that make it feel intimate and welcoming.
At first glance, Orlando's Peabody hotel might seem like a massive business hotel, with more than 1,600 rooms and a location across the street from Florida's Orange County Convention Center. But the hotel, just a 15-minute drive from Disney World, manages to exude a welcoming feel thanks to surprising, family-friendly touches. The three-acre pool area is filled with palm trees and a 20-foot waterslide, and of the hotel's array of dining choices, the B-Line Diner—a 24-hour coffee shop known for desserts like key lime pie—is a standout. Kids are instantly charmed by the resident duck master, who leads a handful of mallard ducks through the lobby twice daily, while parents find respite in the 12-room spa or beside the junior Olympic lap pool, on a large deck that gets plenty of sunlight.
Don't miss the hotel's Coconuts Poolside Bar & Grill, for Caribbean takes on laid-back classics, such as lobster quesadillas and chicken wraps with mango, and a stiff blueberry mojito.
Instead of driving to Walt Disney World or calling a cab, just hop on the hotel's shuttle, which is just $10 per person round-trip.
