Soon-to-launch 878 room all-suite hotel rolls out pre-opening “no attrition” offer for meetings and events booked by March 10, 2017

ORLANDO, FLA (DECEMBER 2016) --- The Grove Resort Orlando will bring a new option in flexible meeting venues to the bourgeoning area just west of Walt Disney World® Theme Parks in February 2017. Uniquely set on 106-acres that incorporate a portion of central Florida’s conservation grounds, The Grove will present itself as an alternative to traditional meeting hotels. The resort’s comprehensive checklist of leisure activities, luxe amenities, and spacious residential-style accommodations will provide opportunity for both intimate and large groups to engage, indulge, and escape.

With a selection of indoor venues that range from an intimate boardroom with seating for 20 to a spacious ballroom for nearly 250, The Grove’s 6,000 square feet of event space will draw a variety of association, corporate, and incentive meetings. Alfresco affairs will find a home poolside at one of the resort’s four swimming pools, or on The Grove’s lush lawn or garden area – all amid a backdrop of natural marsh, wooded landscape, and lakeside views.

The resort’s contemporary design – inspired by The Grove’s natural surroundings – will be carried through each event area, providing an environment that will motivate, stimulate, and energize. Physical spaces will be complimented by an expert level of service, with event management, on-site catering, and audiovisual support available.

The Grove’s mix of one, two, and three bedroom residential-style suites will be an ideal option for guests looking for solo or shared spaces. Floorplans include generously sized accommodations, ranging between 1,264 square feet and 1,544 square feet with private bedrooms and bathrooms, living and dining areas, full kitchens, screened balconies, and full-size washers and dryers.

For those looking to turn business travel into a leisure getaway, The Grove’s accommodations will be a top choice for those traveling with families or groups of friends. On-site entertainment will be plentiful at The Grove, with a lazy river, multiple water slides, and a dual rider surf simulator at the resort’s Surfari Water Park, opening October 2017; four swimming pools; watersports and fishing at the resort’s Lake Austin Pier; a full-service spa; fitness center; game room; and more. Dining will include multiple food and drink options, as well as a large-scale grab-and-go with hot and cold self-serve food, gelato and ice cream, a barista bar, as well as grocery-style items ideal for stocking the in-room kitchen.

The Grove Resort Orlando is currently offering meeting planners the following “no attrition” promotion for events booked between now and March 10, 2017 and occurring between March 10 and December 22, 2017:
