Luxury is getting all the more luxurious in Orlando now that the local Hilton has decided to step things up and truly put the “space” in its outdoor event space. The whopping two million dollar project has just gotten underway, and with a price tag like that, you'd better believe it's going to be a sight to behold.
The Hilton Orlando is the latest local hotel to add outdoor meeting space, breaking ground Tuesday on a $2.1 million project to be known as the Promenade.
The 4-year-old convention hotel, next door to the Orange County Convention Center, said it will turn more than 2 acres of grassy space near its ballroom into a 50,000-square-foot outdoor venue capable of accommodating as many as 3,000 people.
Designed by landscape architect Jeff Sugar of Orlando-based ITEC Entertainment, the space will be divided into four distinct areas surrounded by gardens, water features and a fire pit. The space is to the west of the hotel, along International Drive.
