I travel the world over, but I have to say that one of my most satisfying and relaxing vacations this year was at the Four Seasons Resort Orlando. Imagine a 5-star resort where you can actually feel relaxed in the middle of theme park craziness. And what a fantastic time we had in one of the resort’s 2-bedroom Grand Suites. I think I’m spoiled for life! Tour Four Seasons Resort Orlando on the Glass Slipper Concierge YouTube channel.
The suite’s welcoming entry hall of marble mosaic tile flooring leads into an expansive living/dining area with striking patterned wood ceiling, modern black and white carpeting, oversized dove gray sectional sofa with kiwi green accents, and two white leather Mid-Century modern, Barcelona-style chairs, all seating up to 10 people. An oversized TV sits on a credenza, and in an alcove, you’ll find a desk and chair.
The great room’s dining table, where we had breakfast from room service each morning, seats eight, and the adjacent wet bar holds a small refrigerator and counter seating for two.
Just off the wet bar is a great service pantry with Sub-Zero under-counter refrigerator, Miele coffee machine, microwave, another sink, and a nice assortment of cups, plates, wine glasses, flatware, etc.
Off the entry is a very contemporary half bath with a cylindrical sink and stunning marble patterned wall. Our suite boasted three deep balconies, one running the length of the living room, where we spent many a relaxing hour enjoying the views of the resort’s pool, golf course, and the Magic Kingdom’s nightly fireworks display. And we enjoyed soaking up the warm Florida sunshine.
Extra luxury touches include a Bose sound system, motorized touch drapery, and a touch lighting system. And, as in all guest rooms, is an IPad LaunchPort used for a variety of services: in-room dining, ice request, housekeeping, valet parking, concierge requests, wakeup calls, luggage assistance, stock your minibar, and more. We enjoyed selecting room service from the easy-to-use menu, even ordering up our breakfast the night before and setting the exact time we wanted it delivered.
The master bedroom’s cushy king bed is adorned with an accent wall in a black and white floral pattern, and at its foot is a black leather bench. You’ll also find a desk, white easy chair, and another balcony. The bedroom’s two-sided walk-in closet is a luxury, one side for hanging and the other with loads of drawer space.
The first thing you can’t help but notice as you enter the spacious master bath is the gorgeous freestanding tub behind which is a sparkling tile mural in black and white floral. Also expect dual Carrera marble vanities—one with a very convenient high vanity stool and makeup mirror, and both with an in-mirror television—oversized shower with multiple high-power shower heads (hand-held, rainfall, and two body spray panels), and a separate room with a bidet and toilet.
The 2-bedroom Grand Suite boasts 2,200 square feet. My daughter’s family had a Park View Room connecting on the opposite side of the living area, and we barely knew we had two young children in the same suite due to the suite’s spaciousness.
