Downtown Orlando Guest Rooms Provide the Perfect Place to Recharge While Seeing the Sights

Courtyard Orlando Downtown Is Eager to Experience Orlando's End-of-Summer Events

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 29, 2013) - Proving that the end of summer can be even hotter than the beginning is Orlando's event calendar for the season's final months. From festivals to farmer's markets, sporting events to concerts, there's nothing visitors can't do in the Theme Park Capital of the World. (And that's not even counting what's happening at the actual theme parks.) As travelers pick and choose what to do, one consideration that doesn't require a second thought is the hotel. That's because the Courtyard Orlando Downtown offers a prime location and superior service, allowing visitors to focus on the reason for their trip: the activities.

Guests at these 200 hotel rooms and suites in Orlando can easily settle in before hitting the town. Complimentary high-speed Internet, for example, allows visitors to double-check times and locations before heading out, and in-room coffee and tea service mean they don't have to waste time stopping for caffeine. Instead, they can head straight for the Orlando Science Center to catch the "Blue Man Group -- Making Waves at Orlando Science Center" exhibit before it leaves on September 2, 2013. Or, for a taste of what the Florida sunshine can grow, they can visit the Downtown Orlando Farmer's Market on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The hotel's close proximity to a number of local restaurants provides alternate ways to experience dining in Orlando, Florida, too.

But gastronomic pursuits aren't the only reasons to visit Orlando this summer. The hotel, which is close to Orlando's Amway Center, puts guests just minutes away from family-friendly entertainment like Disney on Ice (September 13 to 15, 2013) and high-impact sporting events like September 18, 2013's match between Tampa Bay Lightning and St. Louis Blues. And music lovers shouldn't miss Il Volo's performance at the Center on September 22, 2013, or the free WMMO Downtown Concert featuring Eddie Money on September 21, 2013.

This Orlando hotel may be near Universal Studios, but kids aren't the only ones who are promised a good time. The Orlando Science Center will host a Science Night Live for adults on September 28, 2013, for grownups to indulge their inner child as they explore the touchable exhibits and film presentations that make the OSC a must-see attraction. Runners, meanwhile, can choose from a number of events, including the Run With the Herd 5K on September 7, 2013, which benefits the Florida Hospital for Children.

Whether visitors are running, learning or watching their way through Orlando, the Courtyard Orlando Downtown promises a comfortable home base for their vacation. As a repeat recipient of TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence, the hotel boasts a proven record for top-notch service, while amenities like media pods in the lobby and 60 HD channels in the guest rooms mean visitors can stay connected even as they're getting away. And the guest rooms' plush, pillow-top mattresses allow everyone to get a good night's sleep and stay energized for whatever events the next day holds.
