“Winter” in Central Florida means something different than it does in most other parts of the country.

If you’re dreading the prospect of icy roads, mountainous snowdrifts, bone-chilling cold snaps—or maybe already dealing with that sort of thing—it’s high time you escaped to warm, sunny Orlando for a Celeste Hotel getaway!

With temperatures typically ranging from the 70s to the 80s—and a “cold snap” implying maybe 50- or 60-degree weather—you’ll be sitting pretty down here in Central Florida, and meanwhile soaking up all that our Marriott Tribute Portfolio hospitality has to offer.

Winter Activities in Central Florida on a Celeste Hotel Escape

On the front-end of things, you’ll find no shortage of holiday happenings on offer in Greater Orlando—including such Celeste festivities as our Breakfast With Santa event.

From a holiday ride on the seasonally decorated Orlando Eye to New Year’s Eve fireworks from SeaWorld to the Orlando Museum of Art, you’re well positioned for merriment with a home base at The Celeste Hotel.

Winter weather in this neck of the woods is ideal for outdoor activities. Hit up some of the nearly countless golf courses in and around Orlando, including the Stoneytown East Golf Course, Winter Park Golf Course, and Disney’s Palm Golf Course.

Or beeline for regional hiking trails, sampling subtropical Central Florida ecology and scenery—from saw palmettos to gators—at nearby preserves such as the Charles H. Bronson State Forest and the Lake Jesup Conservation Area.

Tribute Portfolio Hospitality for an Orlando Winter Vacation at The Celeste Hotel

The above summary—well, let’s just say it’s decidedly non-exhaustive. There’s plenty else to see and do in our attraction-packed corner of Central Florida during the winter: concerts at the Amway Center and the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, culinary explorations from charming Winter Park to the heart of downtown Orlando, shopping expeditions to the downright epic Florida Mall. And that’s not even touching on events here on the University of Central Florida campus that we’re proud to call home, including exhibitions at the UCF Art Gallery.

Come join us for our annual Christmas Day Brunch Buffet at Aurora! Our hotel spaces will be transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with huge assortments of chef-curated displays as well as a variety of holiday décor.

Come spend the holidays feasting at The Celeste Hotel; adults are $85, children 12 and under are $25 and children 4 and under are free!

And through it all, you’ll enjoy top-shelf luxury accommodations here at The Celeste Hotel, right at the entrance to the UCF campus. There’s no better place to kick back than one of our Tribute Portfolio guest rooms or suites, decorated with astrally inspired art and mere steps away from the standout dining available at our Aurora restaurant.
