The dual-brand Hilton Garden Inn Orlando Downtown and Home2 Suites by Hilton Orlando Downtown is now open in Orlando, Florida. It is owned by Peachtree Hotel Group (PHG), is led by managing principals Mitul Patel and Jatin Desai.
The eight-story property includes 224 rooms total, 123 on the Hilton Garden Inn side and 101 pet-friendly Home2 Suites rooms. It is near the Orange County Courthouse, Amway Center, Camping World Stadium and Exploria Stadium. Peachtree Hospitality Management, a division of PHG, will operate the hotel.
The hotels have their own lobbies and dining areas. Shared amenities include a rooftop pool with views of downtown, a restaurant and lounge, an on-site Starbucks, and a fitness center.
“Bundling two category-leading hotel brands allows us to achieve maximum return on our investment in popular space-constrained urban core markets,” said Greg Friedman, PHM’s CEO. “This concept appeals to a wide variety of travel needs and price points from business travelers in town for a meeting or families vacationing, and conventioneers or contract works coming to the city for a week or more.”
In May, PHG completed a $5.3 million renovation of the Hampton Inn by Hilton Baltimore-Downtown Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland. That hotel also will be operated by Peachtree Hospitality Management, a division of PHG.
