Standout Southern hospitality in the heart of Orlando

What should meeting planners expect from The Peabody Orlando, the largest non-gaming, Forbes Four-Star, AAA Four-Diamond hotel in the United States? Beyond its state-of-the-art meeting spaces, world-class dining, and prime location, Southern hospitality and modern elegance are what set this property apart from the pack. For 25 years, the hotel's world-class facilities and services have made it the preferred convention hotel of meeting planners.

The Peabody Orlando offers 300,000 total square feet of flexible function space, including the pillar-free, 54,652-square-foot Peabody Grand Ballroom and four other pillar-free ballroom spaces of varying sizes. Meeting spaces are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, and on-site support for audiovisual, production, business, banquet, and catering services helps planners flawlessly execute memorable events. In 2013, meeting planners can also take advantage of special incentives that will help enhance connectivity during their events.

For guests with contemporary tastes, The Peabody Orlando's 1,641 guest rooms are outfitted with the latest in modern amenities — like televisions embedded in the bathroom mirrors. And among the hotel's 10 dining and entertainment options, NAPA offers Wine Country-inspired cuisine while Rocks, a 6,000-square-foot lounge, serves lively libations. Guests can also squeeze in some rest and relaxation at the hotel's 22,000-squarefoot spa, salon, and fitness center. And who could forget the world-famous March of The Peabody Ducks? It's a twice-daily tradition enjoyed by all.
