Whoever opened this hotel it was a brilliant idea and you are going to do very well. 2nd largest university in the country alone is enough to fill this place up on a regular basis and right on campus! 4 Star luxury and service. Kudos to your team. When we arrived Friday night it apparently was during a huge event which turned out to be the UCF HOF! Met Blake Bortles and he spent time talking to my kid when he didn't have to. Great person. Anyway it was extremely busy and I was so impressed by the Front of House staff being able to take care of the VIP guests but also take the time to deal with all of us checking into the hotel. Also was amazed at how the valet staff out front were able to manage the mass of people coming in. It seemed like they split us hotel guests into one lane and the event arrivals into other lanes to manage. They were superb dealing with a mass of cars coming in. I thought we'd be stuck in that line forever when we drove in but it moved quickly. Well done. The stay was perfect. Hotel staff was always around and always helpful. Beds were built to cuddle you in comfort and put you into a deep sleep. Rooms clean and crisply decorated with space theme overtures. Appropriate with UCF becoming known as Space U. Pool and workout areas were great and we were within walking distance of any event on campus including the football game. Shoutout to the Aurora restaurant as well. Really good food and service as well. Loved our stay and will definitely be back again..

The Celeste hotel was a wonderful place for a weekend vacation visit. I took some time away from my family to rest and recover. I had a nice room on the 4th floor which was relatively quiet, given the location of the hotel, which was accompanied with free bottled water and a very nice smart TV setup. The bed was very comfortable. The blinds were great for letting in light when I wanted it and great for blocked out light when I didn't. Additionally, there are plenty of great restaurants across the street from the hotel if you don't want to eat in the very nice hotel restaurant. The pool and gym were also very nice and exactly what I wanted from a hotel. My only gripe was that on the weekend the start the music around the pool a little early for my taste. I would definitely stay here again and recommend the Celeste to others.

Walked into a beautiful entrance not knowing the unpleasant experience I would have at the Celeste. The service at the hotel bar took forever. No one waited on us and had to go to the bar to ask for service. While dinner was very good, the service was very poor. My third floor room was right above all the air conditioning units which were loud and constantly running. To top that off, my room faced an incredibly busy intersection where I heard loud revving cars well into the the night (after 3am and still going strong). I would have expected better sound proofing for rooms facing this intersection. As a Marriott Rewards member, I am very disappointed in this hotel. My child is a freshman at UCF and I planned to base all my stays at your hotel. This will not be happening and I have found a lovely alternative for the next four years.

Thank you for taking the time to inform the hotel about your most recent experience. Your feedback is invaluable in enhancing our operations and future guest experiences. I apologize for the customer service you received in our food and beverage outlet, as well as the noise in your guest room. Due to the current condition, many restaurants are experiencing low staffing levels, but this is still no excuse for inattentive service. Our team is taught to make every guest feel valued and welcomed, and we regret to hear that this was not reflected in your experience. As a teachable moment, we will be sharing your feedback with our entire restaurant team to ensure that this issue does not occur in the future. As for the condition of your room, we do apologize that your room bordered the busy street and air conditioning unit. A peaceful sleep is imperative to a good vacation, and we understand your frustration. I will share your feedback with our front desk staff to help prevent our wonderful Bonvoy members from being placed in noisy rooms. Positive guest experiences are our number one priority, and we apologize for falling short of your expectations. Your experience is not indicative of our property’s standards, and we hope to demonstrate our true commitment to customer service should you decide to stay with us again. Once again, thank you for sharing the details of your experience.

In town for out daughter graduating college at UCF. Such a luxurious hotel right on the school campus. Amazing. Valet staff were super friendly and welcoming. Valet is with an app and you request your car by text. Cars were always ready and waiting the numerous times we came and went in 2 days. They must have been tired of seeing us but never showed it. Always smiling. Front desk Emma was a superstar. Aurora restaurant was really good although the service was pretty slow. There was only one wait person for the entire restaurant that we could see. Breading a la mode for desert! Don't miss that one! Rooms impeccably clean. Pool area with cabanas to rent. We really enjoyed our stay.

The Celeste Hotel appreciates your stellar review! We are so glad that you enjoyed our new valet options. The app feature allows you to spend more time relaxing without having to walk through the parking lot in those hot Florida afternoons! We were glad to hear that you enjoyed the customer service from Emma. She is dedicated to providing personalized guest experiences, and we are glad she started your stay off on the right note! The bread pudding is a new delicious addition to the Aurora menu, and we are glad you got to try it. We look forward to your future stays among the stars at the Celeste Hotel!

Bad customer service from Zach at the front desk. We came to the hotel to view the grounds to book for a family reunion as well as dine at the restaurant. After finishing dinner it was pouring rain and the front desk provided umbrellas to borrow for guests. When we requested one as well just to get to our car and would bring it right back under the covered entrance we were advised by Zach at the front desk that he would NOT let us borrow the umbrella for 5 minutes to get to our car in the pouring rain. Even though we spent over $250 at the restaurant and were planning on booking over 15 rooms for the reunion. Even though it would be 5 minutes to borrow the umbrella and my husband would wait for me to get the car or even leave a credit card or ID hewould not let us borrow an umbrella. This was completely wrong for customer service to a customer. Especially that their slogan is "Customer service that is out of this world". Horrible customer service and completely bad at being a nice human. We will not book our uocoming family reunion here and even though dinner was excellent we will not be back to the restaurant due to the hotel front desk lack of compassion. As a local resident I will look for better customer service at another hotel. Zach ruined our experience.
