Hilton Orlando has started construction on an outdoor event site adjacent to its ballroom foyer. The new 50,000-sq.-ft. space will cost $2.1 million. It will accommodate receptions for up to 3,000 people and is expected to be completed by early fall.
“This new space, which we are calling The Promenade, was specifically designed around the guest’s experience,” said general manager Doug Gehret. “The Promenade will have four distinct spaces and lawns for large scale events, or more intimate gatherings surrounded by unique gardens, a centerpiece fountain and will be event-ready.”
He adds that the hotel’s award-winning culinary team will support events in the new outdoor venues.
