The room was absolutely gorgeous! I was so happy upon entering. It was large and tastefully decorated. It had a cute sofa for relaxing, too! The only suggestion I have is that the mattress could be of a higher quality/comfort, but we loved our stay!

Stayed here with family over Spring Break. Beautiful property with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Could easily have spent hours viewing all the original artwork throughout the premises. Having 2 pools, a spa, a restaurant and a cafe made it feel like we were staying at an exclusive, high end resort. Located in the heart of Winter Park just footsteps from museums, restaurants and shops made The Alfond Inn the perfect destination for our family. Highly recommend!!

The experience was not one that I'd ever want to repeat. My husband's Bruno Magli shoes were stolen from our room. Which was incredibly strange, then the hotel denied it, so what can you do? The service was pretty horrid. I think the hotel is mainly there for the locals, not tourists as I get the feeling if you don't live in town, you can expect to get robbed and receive very little service. Asked to see footage from the cameras in the halls and they claimed that they have no cameras in the halls and that noone accessed our room?! Ordered room service was served raw chicken called about it and that was also basically blown off. Other than all the above the place is attractive and the room was comfortable, getting ripped off leaves a not great taste in the mouth. I thought I'd try writing this review after I calmed down so I waited and I find that I'm still disgusted by the management and staff that work here. This is a big buyer beware unless you have some local connections or a good attorney and film everything. I'd recommend setting up a hidden camera in your room if you stay there, I don't want to have to live like that but maybe you have to in Florida. Please note that when we were there you also had to valet park and when you valet park that leaves you with no place to store things and given the treatment from this hotel it makes you wonder if that's not by design. This was all a big first.

I LOVED staying at the ALFOND! Everything about the Inn was simply perfect. The Inn has great amenities - restaurant, firepits, spa, bar, pool, etc.... It was very close to ROLLINS, too. Being able to walk everywhere was a treat. Winter Park is a lovely town. If you are visiting Rollins or Winter Park, I recommend staying at the Alfond Inn.

I stayed at the Alfond Inn recently and absolutely enjoyed my stay. It was beautiful, clean, friendly and just steps away from downtown Winter Park. The onsite restaurant, Hamilton's, is superb! I will definitely stay at The Alfond Inn again!

Atlantic Beach, Fla68 contributions41 helpful votes
We have stayed at the Alfond at least 15 times since it opened. The experiences have been mostly very good. The glaring exception was the A/C ducting in the original section. In the older section many rooms have the A/C ducting blowing directly on the beds. I raised the issue several times, but was basically blown (no pun intended) off by the then GM, Other than that issue (which precluded a good night's sleep for me), the property is outstanding in every respect. We got a room in the newer section which, in itself, was enjoyable, if not a tad overpriced. But that's expected given the location. The activity fee - ?????. We got free water included for the activity fee, do not see what else. The downside this time was the extremely poor service on a couple of occasions. I had called for a few more towels (we had multiple events to attend which necessitated a few showers). This was the second time the house phone just rang and rang and would continuously default to the same loop. Perhaps actually picking up the phone is expecting too much from the staff. I went down to the front desk; the desk personnel were engaged in personal conversation and apparently had more important things to do than actually assist a guest. After interrupting the front desk personnel's personal conversation, I was told the additional towels would appear in 15 minutes. As we had a tight timeline between events and I already wasted 5 minutes on the phone, I stated we needed them sooner. Again - an attitude. Check the security footage on Sat evening 5/23 around 5:40pm. I bumped into a young lady in the hallway on the way back to the room and got the towels. The folks at the front desk on arrival were great. The folks on the front desk this past Saturday evening apparently have better things to do than actually pay attention to the guests. The Alfond is a classy establishment that dedicates its profits towards the students at nearby Rollins College. At its best, few hotels in a 50 mile radius can begin to touch it. I speak from experience having stayed many times at the local JW Marriott and Ritz among other finer local hotels. I hope next time we stay at the Alfond management will have impressed on the staff simple courtesies such as actively answering the house phone and full attention to guests is a minimal expectation. The hotel clearly has sufficient personnel, most being very attentive. Unfortunately, the outliers can darken the experience.
