Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace is a 1,014 room Orlando oasis that recently completed a property-wide, multi million dollar renovation, with further plans of 80 million dollars expected to be spent to finalize the complete transformation.

The hotel has unveiled a series of upscale refurbishments including new restaurants, market places, recreation areas and of course all of the rooms got a complete makeover too.

The highlights of this renovation include all new guest room and lobby design, new lobby bar and outside terrace. The restaurant and market additions include Sunnies, home to a selection of local craft beers and seasonal fares, a new poolside restaurant, Shades, a new alphabet-designed restaurant that is designed to be a modern print shop called Letterpress, and a grab-and-go market and retro candy bar called Citrus 28.

No resort is complete without great family oriented recreational activities, especially in Florida. The new expansive recreation area at Hilton Lake Buena Vista includes a Float Lagoon lazy river, adult lap pool and cabanas with a new event lawn and plenty of kid’s programming.

Other resort gems include the Sunday Disney Character Brunch, retro-themed candy shop, stargazing lessons with glow in the dark mocktails, and rooms where kids can watch firework shows from their windows. Groups can book a cocktail reception with views of firework shows over Disney theme parks at 20Seven, which is the highest vantage point in Disney.

Citrus 28 is the place for those moments when you need to grab a quick meal. The gourmet market and cafe features Starbucks coffee, freshly prepared light meals, gourmet bites and local favorites prepared daily and an old fashioned candy store. Guests can take advantage of complimentary Wi-Fi while enjoying the casual seating area.

Letterpress has an impressive view. This is the place to enjoy the eclectic feel of a modern printing shop while enjoying classic American fare. The newest restaurant features seasonal favorites and cooked to order omelets for breakfast. Lunch and dinner menus feature delightfully plated meals with locally sourced ingredients. While you dine, you can enjoy the gorgeous views of Blake Lake, the new float lagoon and event lawn.

Shades is the perfect spot to pull up a chair and enjoy delicious poolside drinks and cuisine. Shades serves fresh American fare, including the quintessential burger and fries, flatbreads, wraps and refreshing cocktails while lounging poolside in the Florida sunshine.

The Cobb salad at Shades features chopped greens, grilled tomatoes, avocado wedges, griddled egg ribbons, lemon dressed rotisserie chicken, cave aged blue cheese & a charred lemon and Italian dressing.

Local brewery, Central 28 Beer Company, located in Debary, FL, can be found at Shades as well.

The Coastal Fish Tacos at Shades are flour tortilla with fresh grilled local fish, house ranchero, avocado, shredded lettuce, & topped with a fresh cilantro crema.

For dessert, Shades offers a cookie ice cream sandwich made with vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two chocolate chip cookies. The cookies are made in house & can also be picked up at Citrus 28 in the hotel.
