Ramada has advanced its domestic strategy to grow its Plaza tier with the opening of the Ramada Plaza Resort & Suites Orlando.
The Ramada brand is focused on growing its premier Plaza tier in the U.S. by maintaining and attracting full-service properties in center-city locations, gateway airports and resort areas. Equipped with the modern amenities that today’s travelers covet, including free Wi-Fi and multiple on-site food and beverage options, Ramada’s Plaza hotels appeal to discerning consumers looking for contemporary accommodations at an affordable price.
“Ramada Plaza properties are our brand’s upper-midscale tier and the Ramada Plaza Resort & Suites Orlando is a welcome addition to the nearly 80 Ramada Plazas we have globally,” said Mark Young, Ramada brand senior vice president.
Set along the banks of Sandy Lake on the popular International Drive in Orlando, Fla., the Ramada Plaza Resort & Suites Orlando showcases a brand new 131 all-suite tower that stands adjacent to the original 164-room Ramada hotel. In addition to the standard Plaza amenities, the new suite tower features unique offerings including a complimentary deluxe continental breakfast, a club level food and beverage outlet, an outside terrace overlooking the lake and a rooftop swim-in-place current pool and bar area called The Oasis. Totaling 295 guestrooms and suites between the two towers, this resort-style property is located within 10 minutes of Orlando’s major attractions.
The main function space option is The Tropical Room, a 2,775-square-foot space that can seat 185 people and can be used for meeting and banquet events. The Tropical room can be separated into three spaces: (1) The Poinsettia Room is 1,075 square feet and can seat 70 people; (2) The Sabal Palm Room is 800 square feet and seats 50 people; and The Orange Blossom Room is 900 square feet and can accommodate up to 65 people.
