As the one and only luxury hotel on the campus of the University of Central Florida, The Celeste provides unbeatable accommodations for any and all UCF visits! And with the fall academic year edging closer, now’s the time to book your astrally themed room or suite with us.

The University of Central Florida and The Celeste Hotel: A Match Made in Heaven

Here at The Celeste Hotel, we’re honored to have become part of the UCF fabric. This is an incredibly dynamic and vibrant educational institution, ranking among the very largest public campuses in the country and offering better than 200 outstanding degree programs.

Our grand opening as the campus’s first luxury hotel is only one of the latest chapters in the UCF story, which started way back in 1968 with the establishment of what was originally called Florida Technological University. Just a hop, skip, and a jump from the Space Coast, UCF has always helped nourish the U.S. space program, and its “Reach for the Stars” motto comes reflected in our own celestial theme.

Accommodations at The Celeste Hotel put you close to all the campus services and attractions, including the UCF Art Gallery and Addition Financial Arena. Taking a campus tour, cheering on the UCF Knights at the Bounce House, attending commencement ceremonies and other special events: We’re the perfect on-campus home base!
