Property is a bit removed from Orlando's theme parks

Owned by the neighboring Rollins College, The Alfond Inn offers modern accommodations about 20 miles northeast of Orlando's major theme parks. The boutique hotel boasts an art collection, a large sunk-in pool and more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space.

The guest rooms are decorated with homey touches like coffee makers and minifridges, and the marble bathrooms feature glass-enclosed showers.

In 2013, Rollins College opened the boutique hotel using a $12.5 million donation; its income will endow a scholarship program. That makes it both the newest fine property in town and the one with the biggest incentive to keep quality high.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended



This serenely sophisticated building in the heart of Winter Park, just steps from the shops and restaurants of Park Avenue, combines an upscale hotel with an art gallery, and is owned by neighboring Rollins College. In an unusual marriage of philanthropy and hospitality, the net operating income is directed to scholarships at the college.



Public areas are striking and feature hand-picked artwork showcasing various artists. Elegant rooms with vibrant colors, custom furnishings and cozy bedding make it easy to rest at the end of the day. The property is nicely situated across the street from Rollins College and just a short walk from top-notch restaurants and boutique shops.

Condé Nast Traveler


Dubbed Orlando's 'chic cousin,' Winter Park, Florida is home to a bevy of stylish shops and cool museums – not to mention the boutiquey Alfond Inn. Located on the site of the former Langford Inn, which shuttered in 2000, this terracotta-tanned hotel has some pretty high standards to live up to: Its former haunt was known to host high-profile politicos like Mamie Eisenhower and Eleanor Roosevelt, not to mentions the Reagans, who just casually dropped in to celebrate one of their wedding anniversaries.
