Iconic Orlando Pool Has Reopened With An Array Of Enhancements, In Addition To Multi-Million Dollar Renovations Property-Wide
ORLANDO, Fla. (September 7, 2021) – The Orlando World Center Marriott’s Falls Pool was already known as one of Orlando’s coolest pools. Now, it’s even more impressive. After officially reopening on Thursday, September 2, 2021, the zero-entry, large scale lagoon style outdoor pool with sun shelves throughout has been reinvented, featuring private cabanas and daybeds, expanded food & beverage service, a kids’ splash zone, and much more. Falls Pool’s new elements are part of Orlando World Center Marriott’s ongoing multi-million-dollar renovation project, which has added a wealth of enhanced experiences to the property.
“Our renovation solidifies the Orlando World Center Marriott’s position as one of Central Florida’s finest full-service resort options for leisure and business travelers,” said Robert Bray, General Manager at Orlando World Center Marriott. “The enhanced Falls Pool experience is a centerpiece for our property, offering thrills, relaxation, and plenty of splashes.”
The reinvented pool now offers ample poolside lounge chairs, daybeds, and additional private cabanas with TV/Wi-Fi, mini refrigerator/ceiling fan and dedicated service. Fall Pool Bar & Grill overlooking the pool area, has been further elevated with expanded food and beverage offerings, which services poolside guests, as well as guests of the resort through the mobile dining application.
Kids (and the young at heart) will love Falls Pool even more now, thanks to its zero-entry pool area with shallow depths for little ones to enjoy safely, three water tower slides, an outdoor jacuzzi, a kids’ splash zone, and a lawn area with a mini-golf course, oversized lawn games. Fun poolside scheduled activities are also available for all ages to enjoy, including water balloon tosses, kids crafts and Gatorland animal interactions.
Additionally, Orlando World Center Marriott celebrated its 35th anniversary in June 2021 and to commemorate this special milestone, the property is offering a length of stay offer, which features up to 35% savings for guests. The hotel has also recently completed several improvements throughout the property and is expecting a handful of new enhancements over the next few months, including:
Transformed Guest Rooms
The property has recently finalized the transformation of all guest rooms and suites, which feature a muted color palette of blue and grays with warm wood accents including a new hard surface floor. All rooms feature a full-size balcony with two chairs and there is an option to upgrade to a view of the main pool which features a nightly laser show. Additional upgrades included the conversion from double/double beds to queen/queen beds, a changeover from bathtubs to walk-in showers for the majority of the guest rooms, as well as new furniture, draperies, bed linens and décor.
Redesigned Golf Course
Hawk’s Landing Golf Course’s exciting new design, which was introduced in 2020, features three completely rebuilt holes, including the signature finishing hole #18, which is now a 204-yard, Par 3 island green. The new 18th Hole island green has become a memorable highlight, challenging players to hit their best shot to finish their day on the course. These changes are a culmination of a multi-year improvement plan, which included a complete bunker renovation with capillary concrete liners, and a conversion of all putting greens to Diamond Zoysiagrass, which receive rave reviews for speed and consistency.
A Reimagined Restaurant
Mikado’s Japanese Steakhouse (Teppanyaki Style) is currently undergoing renovations and is expected to reopen in December 2021. All entrees at Mikado will be prepared at hibachi tables in a display of flashing knives and exotic aromas, which will continue to allow guests to enjoy watching chefs fire up the steel grill.
A New Water Park
Slated to open in spring 2022, the new River Falls water park will feature an iconic slide tower that empties riders into a plunge pool before joining a 575-foot-long lazy river. At a height of 50 feet, the slide tower will feature three innertube slides for 1-2 people, each with thrilling elements for twists and turns around every corner: a Boomerango, Aquasphere, and a Tailspin. Along with stepped entries along the river course, swimmers can wade into the lazy river through an adjacent zero-entry pool, which features eight kid-friendly bubbling nozzles at the water’s edge and two tall spraying vertical leaf elements. Ample lounge chair seating and private cabanas will also be available.
Expanded Meeting Space
Slated for completion in June 2022, the property will add 24 meeting rooms of 1,200 square feet each. This will add 60,000 square feet of total space, bringing the property’s event space to over 500,000 square feet of flexible function space to accommodate meetings and events of all sizes. This new meeting space, called Magnolia, will enhance the hotel’s existing convention center, and provide even more options for planners.
Additionally, the property currently has several offers and packages for guests to take advantage of, including:
- In honor of the property’s recent 35th anniversary, the Length of Stay offer features up to 35% off savings for guests staying 5 nights or more through June 2022.
