With the opening of The Celeste—the first upscale hotel at the University of Central Florida—visitors to the UCF campus and Orlando in general will enjoy modern, elegant, and utterly unique Tribute Portfolio accommodations.

But this invitation to experience our boutique luxury and convenient location is also an invitation to explore and engage. As our name suggests, we take our inspiration from the wider universe, and encourage our guests to embrace their curiosity and sense of wonder amid our starry hospitality!

The Celeste Experience

Cosmic accents, galactic flair, and a spirit of adventure and whimsy define the Celeste aesthetic. From each of our 179 rooms and suites to our snazzy and playful public spaces, The Celeste Hotel is more than just a place to stay: It’s its own delightful world.

Our Tribute Portfolio hotel provides premier accommodations in East Orlando and stellar hospitality in more ways than one.

Besides the celestially flavored rooms and suites, we offer a fine in-house American restaurant plus a snazzy lobby bar. You’ve also got our outdoor pool for soaking up that Central Florida sunshine—and pondering the great dome of sky overhead.

Equal parts luxurious and playful—with a little mystery woven in, just like the heavens above—The Celeste Hotel offers a completely new opportunity for an overnight stay on the UCF campus.

Events at the Celeste Hotel

Those accommodations aren’t all, either: The Celeste also serves as one of the best event venues in East Orlando. We offer lovely and versatile spaces ideal for weddings, galas, and other celebrations. Our event floorplan includes the well-appointed Celestial Ballroom and, for outdoor happenings, our expansive Event Lawn.

The Celeste: Your Gateway to the University of Central Florida & Orlando

A perch at The Celeste provides you with ready access not only to the University of Central Florida itself, but such close-by Orlando attractions as the Orlando Museum of Art, Lake Nona Medical City, the Addition Financial Arena, the Amway Center, and Fodor’s Grove. You’ll also find yourself mere minutes from Orlando International Airport, plus the shopping, dining, and other enticements of Downtown Orlando. Beautiful trails in our local parks and greenways await, including routes along the serene Econlockhatchee River.
