11 Best LGBT-Friendly Resorts for Families
11 Best LGBT-Friendly Resorts for Families
From: Family Vacation Critic
Many gay families have enjoyed Disney World and the myriad other Orlando-area resorts for years, as the city and its residents have been leaders in inclusiveness, even before it was politically popular. If you’re not going to stay on property at Disney, The Point is a smart choice. Located centrally on Universal Boulevard—and with a free shuttle service to nearby theme parks—the property has many suite options, including one- and two-bedroom suites, ranging up to 1,100 square feet in size and containing full kitchens and washers and dryers. There’s a pool and fitness center on property, as well. The décor is conservative in nature but pleasing, and the resort has an upscale feel to it. While there is one restaurant onsite, many families enjoy the easy five-minute walk to International Drive, where countless restaurants, chain and otherwise, abide.
Mitchell H. Berman, V.P. Marketing & Revenue Management for Paramount Hospitality Management, explained that the resort doesn’t distinguish between guests, especially based upon sexual orientation or affiliation—or do specific marketing to the LGBT family community.
“We value all of our guests equally and treat all with gratitude for choosing us; consequently, we extend the highest levels dignity, respect, courtesy, hospitality and professionalism to all, at all times,” he said. “To us, this has always been the most genuine form of marketing—satisfying the needs of our guests and exceeding their expectations."
BOUTIQUE HOTEL PERFECT FOR THE MODERN PROFESSIONAL
AN UPSCALE, ALL SUITE, BOUTIQUE HOTEL PERFECT FOR THE MODERN PROFESSIONAL
It’s no longer a secret! Orlando’s ‘Suitest’ hotel, the Point Orlando Resort, is undergoing renovation
ORLANDO, Fla – January 7, 2015 – The Point Orlando Resort, located on Universal Boulevard and only 2 miles from Universal Orlando and 2.5 miles from the Orange County Convention Center, is undergoing an extensive renovation to re-position itself as the area’s premiere, all-suite, boutique hotel.
The renovation encompasses the entire hotel: all the suites, as well as many public areas. The new look and feel was fully evident with the recent unveiling of the updated hotel lobby and remodeled breakfast barista, which evolves a night into the new ‘EVO Lounge & Tapas Bar’.
The hotel has and will remain fully operational during the renovation process.
The rooms will feature a new and exciting furniture package including beds, dressers, sofas, fixtures, lighting and décor.
The multi-million dollar transformation pays homage to its surroundings, capturing the energy and evolution of the Universal Blvd. and I-Drive experience, but providing all the convenient comforts of home. The boutique hotel’s overall persona will offer more of a chic, city-smart space, where guests can balance business with leisure.
This will be the first major renovation for the property, which has only been open for eight years.
Re-imagined by Paramount Hospitality Management’s designer, the property is aiming for an approachable yet modern ambiance that will be achieved through textures, plush carpeting and classic lines – all of which underlies The Point’s ‘chic boutique’ hotel experience.
“The renovations are geared for the well-seasoned traveler – whether in town for business or pleasure,” said David Nimmo, The Point’s General Manager. “We want to offer the comforts and convenience of a home away from home, while providing unparalleled guest services.”
The property features an exercise room, modern business center, on-site parking and complimentary shuttle service to all the major theme parks. Amenities include a heated outdoor pool, Wi-Fi, hot tub and cabana bar.
The Point will have 228-beautifully redesigned hotel guest rooms once completed. 25 additional double-king room types have been added during the renovation. The oversized guest rooms are carefully designed with flexibility to meet the needs and requirements for all guests - whether for the business or leisure traveler. Each suite contains a kitchenette with mini-fridge, microwave, and tea and coffee making equipment. The 1- and 2-bedroom suites also offer full kitchens, washer/dryers and a whirlpool tub.
Many units also have balconies or patios.
Tower one renovation is scheduled to be complete Jan. 17 and tower two Feb. 8, 2016.
