They don’t call Orlando, Florida “The City Beautiful” for nothing—as you can readily find out for yourself on a getaway to The Celeste Hotel!

Our star-sprinkled luxury hotel—the first to grace the campus of the University of Central Florida in East Orlando—gives you unique and well-appointed accommodations just a hop, skip, and a jump from Downtown Orlando. You’ll be perfectly positioned to day-trip your way around The City Beautiful, content in knowing you’ve got top-tier Tribute Portfolio hospitality awaiting you back at The Celeste.

The Joys of Downtown Orlando

Dining, shopping, sightseeing, recreation: Downtown Orlando has it all, presented to you under the ample and friendly sunshine of Central Florida.

It’s a pleasure strolling around the city, or perhaps hopping aboard one of the rentable bicycles or electric scooters for a bit faster-paced touring. Walk or pedal the three-mile-long Orlando Urban Trail, which runs from Lake Highland to Winter Park’s Mead Garden with multiple bodies of water and oodles of loveliness along the way.

Feed the swans—and take a cruise on a swan paddleboat—at famous Lake Eola, which also happens to be a fabulous place to take in the sunset. Head over to the fascinating Orange County Regional History Center and nab a selfie or two with the alligator sculptures outside.

And speaking of, you’ll find a fantastic collection of public art—sculptures, murals, and more—scattered throughout Downtown Orlando, providing a fine excuse for getting out and about around the city. The same goes for the Orlando Historic Districts Walking Tour, a self-guided exploration of Downtown’s history and architectural heritage.

Then there’s the diverse and extensive lineup of restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, boutiques, performance venues, and greenspaces. In short, there’s a heck of a lot to see and do in Downtown Orlando, and The Celeste Hotel is the perfect springboard!
