The Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando is reaching the final stages of its inspired $18 million redo, which began in June 2022. First to open up was the Bosendorfer Lounge, along with the addition of an on-site Starbucks coffee shop, meeting spaces for VIP and C-suite gatherings and the hotel’s signature restaurant, The Boheme.
The Altira Rooftop Pool + Lounge made its debut earlier this year, a sophisticated space with swanky seating pods with couches, bungalows, canopies and cabanas around the chic new pool, with an all-day menu serves up seasonal dishes and hand-crafted cocktails. The final stage of the transformation, a revamp of the guestrooms, is expected to be completed in late 2023.
Grand Bohemian—Grand Style
The $18 million transformation saw a return to the hotel’s Secession influences with a deep dive into modern luxury. Originally inspired by Vienna’s Secession Building—created by artists who sought to break free from traditional styles—the hotel has kept hints of its past (think ornamental details and a blend of geometric and organic forms) while moving firmly into the future with a blend of modern art, furniture and finishes that still respect the past.
In addition to the Altira Rooftop Pool + Lounge, the Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando offers upscale European-inspired dishes at The Boheme, light bites, cocktails and live music at the Bosendorfer Lounge and two private dining spaces, the Peacock Room or the Wine Room, with capacity for 26 or 14 diners, respectively. Of note: The hotel offers a unique Sunday Jazz Brunch, with bottomless mimosas, live jazz performances, an extensive wine list, food stations and family-style options.
The last stage of the Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando’s renovation will result in 246 total guestrooms, including one Presidential Suite on the 15th floor and 32 1-bedroom suites (16 with a Jacuzzi tub). Expect these to be completed by the end of 2023, though the public spaces are already open and welcoming guests.
