5 star hotels in Orlando, Florida

Most popular areas in Orlando for 5-star hotels

Bouts of adrenaline-pumping rides in Universal, roaring exhibits in the Animal Kingdom, and lickety-split slides in Wet 'n Wild can get tiring, you know. That's why 5-star hotels are a prime pick for luxury-leaning travelers in Orlando. There's just a smattering of them across the city, offering the most exclusive of services and style. Some are actually inside the Disney resorts, with deluxe suites that overlook the world-famous attractions. Others are in exclusive gated communities down in Kissimmee, with little lakes and manicured cul-de-sacs all around. Some are nearer Discovery Cove and Universal's parks, a whisker closer to the Orlando downtown.

Top 5-star hotels in Orlando

Bringing the clubs? You'll wake up to views of the pristine greens and rolling fairways of one of Orlando's top courses if you choose the Villas of Grand Cypress. The greens there were signed off by Jack Nicklaus, and the resort itself has a private boating marina and spa. Families will love the proximity to the rides that comes with the famous Four Seasons Resort, where sprinkling fountains herald doorstep access to a whole water park. For something roomier and more private, the ChampionsGate Vacation Homes is a villa with a private pool and chic interior.

Where to find the best restaurants in Orlando

The most happening area for gastronomy in the downtown part of Orlando is unquestionably the crossover of Church Street and Orange. It's a matrix of little alleys that's dotted with speakeasy bars, where cocktails clink and haute-cuisine French bistros waft the scents of escargot and garlic-laden coq-a-vin. Closer to Disney and the 5-star hotels nearer the theme parks, Restaurant Row has plenty in the way of high-class eateries – think Tuscan-inspired Italian osterias and sumptuous American steakhouses. Winter Park is also laden with acclaimed restaurants, small boho cafes, and cutting-edge kitchens.

Most popular things to do in Orlando

Make the most of your visit to the home of Mickey Mouse by opting for the full-frills VIP tour of Disney World. Those tailor-made trips see the folk of Epcot and the Magic Kingdom roll out the red carpet. You'll be assigned a private Disney guide who can take you straight to the front of the queue on attractions like the Big Thunder Mountain and the Aerosmith coaster, all with food included and free transfers from the door of your hotel. Once you're done on the rides, how about some retail therapy? The exclusive enclave of Winter Park hosts the Park Avenue mall, which comes awash with designer boutiques and little art galleries, all housed in historic Floridian buildings. Taking to the skies is also an option. Helicopter flyovers promise to glide across the theme parks, the lakes of the Sunshine State, and beyond.

Best ways to get around Orlando

If you really want to navigate the theme park capital of the world in style, it might be worth checking ahead to see if your 5-star hotel offers private limo services. They are chauffeured and on-demand, so you'll be able to head to the domain of Mickey Mouse whenever you want to. Alternatively, you could drive yourself and opt for a luxury car hire. There are loads in Orlando International Airport, touting open-top cars and luxurious SUVs with air conditioning and leather-upholstered interiors.
