An Upscale, All-Suite, Boutique Hotel, Perfect for the Modern Professional.

January 19, 2016 in Hotels by cipcipTrip

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.
