    Apparently this project was announced in February, but I'm just learning about it. The Grand Orlando Resort at Celebration is being renovated and will become a Delta Hotels by Marriott property. The press release says Fall 2018, but the Marriott website says March 2019.

    This hotel used to be a Radisson before it dropped that affiliation and went independent. Typically when that happens, it's because the owners didn't meet the minimum requirements to stay in the chain. Based on Trip Advisor reviews, that is probably what happened.

    Hopefully, the renovation will significantly improve the quality. As off-site hotels go, it's not a bad location. It's near the intersection of Interstate 4 and 192 (W Irlo Bronson Hwy) but far enough away from those roads to avoid traffic noise.

    Very interesting. Pretty sure that is where DS stayed in January with his friends. They were running the Marathon so asked if he wanted to tag along. Was free for him. He said it was okay, musty and needing work. Glad to see someone wants to bring it back. I remember when it was a highly popular offsite hotel for Disney.

    NOW if something can happen with that ghost town to it's west.
