Courtyard Orlando Downtown Welcomes the New Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center

The Orlando Florida Hotel Offers Complimentary Shuttle To and From the Brand New Performing Arts Space in Downtown Orlando Florida

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Nov 24, 2014) - Orlando recently welcomed the brand new Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts to Central Florida's vibrant entertainment hub, following the space's Grand Opening on November 6th, 2014. The new center is a unique collection of venues, each with its own vision and purpose, showcasing everything from live shows, to charity events, and intimate gatherings. Courtyard Orlando Downtown is located just one mile from the new art space, and is inviting guests to enjoy some of the best events of the season just moments away the esteemed property.

The Orlando, Florida hotel provides a complimentary shuttle to and from the Performing Arts Center, and just minutes from some of the city's top restaurants and hotspots. Guests can easily stop by the ever-popular SoCo or Kress on their way to an evening show, and afterwards grab a drink in the hotels' Bistro and enjoy even more downtime. Entertainment is always within reach and easily accessible.

The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts is the culmination of a years-long effort to revitalize the downtown entertainment district, and spans two city blocks along Orange Avenue and South Street. It replaces the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre, originally built in 1926, and will host everything from Broadway shows to rock legends in its Orchestra-style Walt Disney Theater, which seats thousands. 

The venue's Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater will host eventful galas, stage performances, cabarets and private events in a space that offers amazing acoustics and a colorful ceiling of abstract artwork, while its smaller function areas and lobbies create ideal settings for receptions and more intimate affairs.
