“Wonderful stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

We enjoyed this hotel so much. It is truly an experience! We loved modern decor and the art throughout the common areas. The hotel is new, upscale, and stylish. The proximity to Park Avenue was perfect. It was easy to enjoy all of Winter Park's best features within a short walk. We enjoyed breakfast at Hamilton's and drinks at the bar. A few small things could have been better. There was a mix up at checkout about our room rates. This was easily corrected because I had a printout of my reservation information. If I had not had the information, I am not sure how it would have resolved. I wish that self park were available. Overall, a wonderful experience and I recommend it highly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the pet rooms (we had to change rooms after we heard barking from our first...

My wife and I stayed here the nights of March 20th and 21st for the Winter Park Art Festival. The hotel is brand new and is a welcome addition to Winter Park. The room was very nice and comfortable and overlooked New England Avenue. The room was quiet and the bed was very comfortable. We had breakfast and lunch in the restaurant and all the meals were very appetizing and the service was professional. The interior of the hotel is amazing with eclectic touches of the mid-east and Europe. All the net profit from the Alfond goes to Rollins College scholarships. The roof top pool is a nice place to relax in the evening with the blue lighting. Winter Park has been needing this type of hotel for years as the only choices are two dated hotels in dire need of refurbishment. Will definitely return on my next trip.

My daughter and I stayed at the Alfond when she was re-visiting Rollins College in February and we were very pleased with our stay. The hotel is very convenient to the college and Park Ave so we walked pretty much everywhere and left the car with the valet. The lobby and public areas are very clean and attractive. The room was spacious and well-appointed. The staff was friendly and helpful. Should my daughter choose Rollins this will definitely be the place we stay when we visit.

like having a room ready upon check in time which is 4PM-no room until after 5PM. Basic room, clean. We had asked for a courtyard view and got a view of the ugly rooftop. Nice lobby area. Location to Park Ave. was convenient.

Finally, an elegant hotel in Winter Park. Spent 2 glorious days here during an event. Walking distance to Park Street and a short taxi ride to my other favorite restaurants. The hotel itself is artsy and the staff is very helpful. Only had breakfast in the restaurant but it was wonderful. Our room was perfect. Very cozy beds and lovely amenities. A refrigerator that actually works! The rooftop pool is furnished very nicely.
I live less than 2 hours from Winter Park and am always looking for reasons to go back and stay at the Alfond. It truly is a gem and not far from Orlando without all the ruckus. Many great restaurants in the area make a great destination for adults looking to get away from the Disney scene. Treat yourself!

Location: Ideal if you are going to be in Winter Park, or really even visiting Orlando in general. Just a short walk to all the shops and restaurants on Park Avenue, Rollins College, Train Station, Morse Museum and a short ride to downtown Orlando and beyond.
Property: The grounds are beautiful, the building architecture is a perfect blend of Spanish Mediterranean and modern amenities, just like the Rollins College campus.
Rooms: We stayed in a double queen room and it was very nice. I liked the larger television.
Pool and Restaurant: The pool and deck area are great, very old school Florida.
Gym: My son and I used the gym and we both thought it was great. Because of its great location, I also went for a jog down Interlachen Ave.
Restaurant and Bar: We had breakfast each morning in Hamilton's Kitchen. Good breakfast. I also had a beer at the bar and that was equally nice.
The Staff: I did not notice them so that is typically a plus.

We used to live in Winter Park so are very familiar with the area. It was so nice to be able to return and enjoy the city while staying at a nice hotel. The property is well designed/laid out. We stayed in a Parlor King room which was nice/spacious. . .needs better lighting, however. I'm not sure why hotels have gone away from dressers/drawers. . .just not a fan of shelving for my clothes when unpacking. TV and internet were good/high quality/speed. The housekeeping service isn't quite up to other fine hotels in terms of quality of cleaning and timeliness (asked them to come back in 15 min for turn down and when we returned 2 hours later they hadn't come). The public spaces are great, especially the Courtyard and pool area. We didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on restaurant or room service. The staff was nice but not much of them, except on Friday night when there were quite a few Managers floating around due to an event. We will definitely stay there again, just hope it doesn't get much pricier as it's quite high especially for what it is.
