In most cities you’d travel to for business purposes, you’d likely get a hotel room as close to your convention center or other business-related location as you could. However, with so much to do in Orlando, this isn’t always the best choice. Let’s take a look at a few different options you have as you consider the best spot to stay when visiting Orlando for business purposes.
Rent your own vacation home
This is often the last thing business travelers consider – especially if they’re traveling alone. However, the reality is that these homes have many advantages. First of all, because these vacation homes start at just $99 it can be more affordable than staying at a convention center hotel. Second, you’ll have a dedicated extra bedroom to use as your office. If you need to entertain clients you’ll have an excellent home base in which to do so.
Stay at a fabulous resort hotel
Who says that just because you’re going on a business trip you can’t enjoy a little vacation yourself? It’s true that Orlando is more than an hour from any beach, but you’ll find plenty of Orlando resorts with a beach-like atmosphere. Come into Orlando for business, go to your conferences or business dinners in the day and early evening, and then come back to relax at these incredible resorts.
Save money near the convention center
If you’ll be spending most of your time at the convention center then you may find this the most convenient spot to stay. Note that you’ll likely see chain hotels, which is a disadvantage because you’ll miss out on much of the unique charm of Orlando. However, the plus side is that you can likely use your points – or rack up plenty of new ones. If you’re coming to a popular convention you’ll want to make your reservations as far in advance as possible because these hotels do fill up.
Consider a split stay
Remember that you don’t have to commit to a single option for your entire trip. You could travel to Orlando a few days before you need to and stay in a vacation home or resort, or you could extend your trip a few days. This gives you the optimal opportunity to get the convenience of hotels close to where you need them, yet allows you excellent flexibility to also take in all that Orlando has to offer. Beyond the theme parks that everyone is familiar with, there are also exceptional restaurants, many museums, and tons of nightlife options. Make your trip to the Sunshine State count!
