Just started looking into hotels for a girls night in Orlando (6 or 7 females in 30s). Our tentative plan is to drive over from Tampa early one Sat. morning, spend the day relaxing by pool, maybe have a spa treatment. Go out that night and head back to Tampa Sunday afternoon.
Leaning towards Portofino b/c of vicinity to CityWalk (I have never been). Looks like Ritz Carlton might be far away from any nightlife?
Also are there any Florida resident discounts at any hotels? Which months are cheaper?
Leaning toward month of August- Portofino is about $300/night while Ritz is about $200/night at that time.
Thanks in advance!
