First Look: New Town Center Hotel


Plans for a new hotel in the innovative Lake Nona community were unveiled today. The iconic 16-story tower Town Center hotel will be located in the heart of Lake Nona’s premier entertainment and shopping district, echoing the energy of the Lake Nona Town Center with its modern, exciting and social vibe extending throughout the property. 

“The Town Center hotel will be a defining anchor within Lake Nona’s premier entertainment, dining and retail district,” said Jim Zboril, President of Tavistock Development Company. “It’s iconic and thoughtful design will offer Orlando visitors a first-class location with fun and exciting amenities. With the south terminal expansion underway at the airport, we believe that this unique property will cater to airport travelers as well as those who intend to make Lake Nona their final destination.”


Designed by renowned architecture firm, Arquitectonica, the Town Center hotel boasts a sleek exterior, grand motor court entrance, sophisticated lobby, ballroom for 200, plus a vibrant rooftop pool and lounge with private event capabilities.

With convenient transportation available to all guests for access throughout Lake Nona, the hotel will also offer frequent connections to the neighboring Orlando International Airport, providing easy access to Orlando’s 68 million visitors annually. A unique partnership with BAGS, Inc. offers guests the convenience of seamless baggage delivery to and from Lake Nona.

Guestrooms and suites are thoughtfully detailed, providing effortless spaces for work and relaxation. Efficient workspaces (sculptural console that functions as a desk) with ergonomic seating and integrated linear lighting will appeal to the sophisticated business professional, while spacious rooms with unique bathrooms and dressing areas will offer a first-class experience for all hotel guests.

Situated within Lake Nona, the world’s most sophisticated wellness community as noted by the Global Wellness Institute, the hotel’s design and offerings are complementary with the community’s forward-thinking wellbeing initiatives. The 24-hour gym will feature first-class equipment and on-demand fitness by Lake Nona Institute partner Technogym, who recently aligned with Lake Nona to create the first seamlessly connected fitness ecosystem in the U.S.

Hotel guests will also have access to Lake Nona’s fiber network providing internet at speeds approximately 200x the average.

In addition to the hotel’s 80-seat restaurant and rooftop bar and lounge, hotel guests will find themselves immersed into the social center of the Lake Nona neighborhood with dozens of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues just steps away.
