"Great Find Away from Theme Park Congestion"
We've stayed at numerous Orlando area resorts over the years (various Disney, Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott, etc.), and have found our new favorite.
The Alfond Inn is quite an elegant property - well designed & beautifully appointed with a terrific collection of modern artwork. The rooms are comfortable, quiet, and spacious. All of the hotel niceties - robe, slippers, morning paper, room coffee service with cream, etc.
Alfond's staff was attentive, friendly, and their valet service is the best I've experienced.
What really stood out (which we didn't expect to appreciate as much), is the location. This hotel is nestled in the heart of Winter Park (a quaint northern suburb of Orlando, about 30-45 minutes from the theme parks). Each morning and evening we would stroll a block or two to take advantage of a wide variety of restaurants, bars, and shopping. Boca's for dinner, The Briarpatch & Barnie's for breakfast stood out
