Exploring the New Wellborn Boutique Hotel - Downtown Orlando
Nothing says classic Art Deco quite like the Wellborn Hotel in the heart of Downtown Orlando. There are big exciting plans in the works currently to refurbish and redesign this historic property, built in the early 1900s.
The owners of the estate are the Mawardi brothers- Orlando’s most well known young entrepreneurs. Their company Team Market Group, who also owns Celine, Mathers, and The Robinson, have now added this incredible hotel real estate to their portfolio.
At the present time , people can grab coffee and use their WiFi to work out of the hotel’s cafe section on select days. Keep in mind as of today the hotel is still under renovations in some areas. The team is working to have all of the hotel rooms completed by this fall to begin accepting hotel guests. On hotel sights, you are able to book select hotel rooms now, at prices ranging from $120 - $150 per night (subject to change).
More exciting news for us locals- Wellborn will act as an event space venue and soon have a full functioning restaurant on site ( you can now start reserving Wellborn for any upcoming events). As of today during Friday’s and Saturday’s from 5PM-2AM, guests can come by to enjoy their cocktail and drink menu at the bar. They even have an antique car turned into an outdoor bar in the garden area for people to purchase some cool cocktails. Be sure to follow them on Instagram @thewellbornhotel for questions and updates.
I absolutely love the character of the entire property- it is clear that the team is striving to preserve the hotel and hold on to its charm and character. In the dining room where the restaurant will be held, some of the Victorian style artwork seen is actually a part of the original estate. There are numerous sunrooms and big windows throughout, surrounding the spaces with light and views of the lush outdoor garden . There is so much to explore here, with the property being home to not one, but THREE historic homes.
Each room welcomes you to a different era- Victorian, old classic Florida style rooms, retro themes, all working together cohesively to this newly renovated historic gem.
In terms of the location- I don’t think you could get any closer to the main spots of Downtown Orlando than this. You are a stroll away from Church Street, Lake Eola, Dr. Phillips Center, and Camping World to name a few main places. The hotel is also less than a half hour to the theme parks.
