The Westin Orlando Universal Boulevard unveiled its newest event space, The Lotus Ballroom, in February. The room measures 5,394 square feet, including pre-function space, and brings the hotel’s total meeting space to 13,685 square feet. The hotel is across the street from Orange County Convention Center.
The Lotus Ballroom can accommodate up to 300 for banquet and classroom settings, and up to 400 theater-style and for receptions. It can be divided in two 2,312-sq.-ft. rooms. It has floor-to-ceiling windows on one wall, which provides natural light and views of the surrounding area. The new space joins five smaller meeting rooms, which range 840 to 1,650 square feet in size. The largest of these, Como, has 14-ft. ceilings and can accommodate 120 for banquets and 200 theater-style. The smallest, Nona, holds 20 to 90 attendees depending on configuration. Audiovisual equipment and Internet access are available. A 180-sq.-ft. private dining room has room for 10 diners, and the patio of Fiorella’s restaurant can accommodate 48 for private dinners and 120 for receptions.
The Westin Orlando Universal Boulevard has 315 guest rooms. The heated outdoor pool is open year-round. A fitness center is on-site, and the hotel provides three- and five-mile jogging maps around the property for attendees seeking fresh air.
