Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Castle Hotel, an Autograph Collection by Marriott property stands out from the rest with its palace-inspired décor. Guests enter the hotel through ornate glass gates to find a lobby adorned with royal purples and golds, eclectic artwork and chandeliers. The guest rooms also feature whimsical decor.

On-site amenities are geared more toward adults than children. There is a swanky cocktail lounge and three on-site restaurants, including the fun Café Tu Tu Tango tapas bar, where live musicians play on select nights. Post theme-park relaxation can be found at the Poseidon Spa, where treatments are inspired by the Roman Baths, or at the outdoor pool lined by cabanas and lounge chairs. After dark, guests can head up to one of two “sky terraces” to watch the Disney and Universal fireworks.

The property sits on Orlando's famed International Drive, complete with shopping, dining and entertainment options. The Disney and Universal theme parks are less than a 20-minute drive.

Little hard to find...but a real gem. Staff very professional and helpful. The pool bar is the best. We had breakfast one morning at the bistro. Eggs Benedict was prepared well and delicious. Grits were good and the potatoes were hot and fresh. Hotel is within walking distance of many restaurants. Very nice!
