ORLANDO, Fla., May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wyndham Orlando Resort, an iconic hotel on International Drive, proudly announces its new name, Wyndham Orlando Resort International Drive, which accompanies a multi-million dollar "re-imagination," enhancing the guest experience at the resort and ushering in a new era in its 40-year history. With anticipated completion in October 2013, guests will continue to see changes unfold in coming months before the grand re-opening. In addition to the new name, the hotel will unveil a revamped look for all 613 guestrooms and suites, adorned with modern, "resort-chic" decor. Fusing hues of poppy red with elegant, sleek furnishings, the guestrooms evoke playful sophistication, capturing effortlessly casual yet refined style. The revitalization also includes an enhanced guest arrival experience with a meandering path leading to a grand porte-cochere and expansive, newly constructed lobby with views of a sweeping Grand Lawn, complete with vast manicured greens. The creation of 60,000 sq. ft. of meeting space will allow for seamless events while renovated indoor function space -- now unified into one building for increased ease and convenience -- allows meeting attendees to stay connected with the addition of an ultra-contemporary technology lounge, a place to meet and grab a drink after a long day. Wyndham Orlando Resort International Drive will be positioned as the epicenter of excitement with the addition of surrounding I-Shops, bringing hosts of new dining and shopping options, as well as development of I-Drive Live, including the Orlando Eye (inspired by London Eye Ferris wheel), Madame Tussauds Wax Museum and SEA LIFE Aquarium, planned for one block away.
