Now Open: B Resort & Spa

By Collaborate Staff, January 12, 2015

Experience a new side of Orlando—without breaking up with Mickey Mouse. The new B Resort & Spa artfully captures the essence of the destination without being in-your-face Disney (though it does still have a free shuttle service to the parks, and Downtown Disney is a 10-minute walk away).

The 394-room property has complimentary Wi-Fi and quirky local accents. As part of the resort’s B Artistic program, original photography, sculptures, paintings and mixed media works are displayed within meeting spaces and pre-function areas to showcase Central Florida’s art scene.

B Resort & Spa has more than 25,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space for meetings. In addition to two ballrooms, 11 breakout rooms and a spacious terrace, the resort also has inventive spaces for small groups of up to 20. Each can be rented out for unique gatherings, such as a Zumba or yoga session in its relaxation room, a brainstorming session in the llibrary, or presentation in the theater, which has its own popcorn machine. Large Monscierge touch screens in meeting and public spaces will help attendees navigate everything from the weather forecast to local restaurant recommendations. Flight schedules can also be viewed, and boarding passes can be printed at the front desk from any Monscierge board on-site.

At on-site barbecue hot spot American Q, the flatbed of a 1951 Ford F1 pickup truck is home to an all-you-can-eat buffet, and a large communal table is ideal for keeping a group together during mealtime. A semi-private dining room for up to 40 people is also available, and the entire restaurant can be rented out for private functions for up to 200.
