History of the Orlando World Center Marriott
The Orlando World Center Marriott was first opened in 1986 and was the largest hotel in Florida. Currently, it is the largest Marriott in the world, with 2,008 rooms. It stands 28 stories tall and has a 9-story tall atrium in the lobby.
In 2002, the hotel built a new tower to hold an additional 500 rooms. The completion of the tower made it the world’s largest Marriott, and it has remained so.
To expand its convention center space, the hotel started construction in 2007 on what would become the Cypress Ballroom, an area with 104,000 square feet of meeting space. Now, it’s connected to the Convention Center to make access even easier for guests.
Since opening, the hotel has added a total of 6 swimming pools, opened 10 restaurants and lounges, and created a 200-acre golf course. It also boasts over 338,000 square feet of convention space along with the world’s largest pillar-free ballroom.
