Where to stay in Orlando

Orlando is famous for its high concentration of budget, mid-range, and luxury hotels. The city caters to every tourist's needs, with accommodations ranging from inexpensive hostels and motels to five-star resorts and lavish private villas. Orlando is a busy city all year long, so plan ahead and book your stay well in advance. To avoid the crowds of the big theme parks, consider renting a vacation house or condo just outside the city, or explore one of the area's campgrounds or RV resorts.

  • Artegon was original, light and airy and I was a must if you were tired of shopping and the parks, it was quiet and none of the hassle of silly tourits (even though I'm a tourist myself ha) but it was...  more »

  • This place was very interesting to walk through, unfortunately for us 75% of it was closed. It looks to be a co-op of Artesian with only Pro Bass and Ron Jon Surf Shop being the exceptions. They are a...  more »

  • Even though the place was nice before it closed i just felt the Festival Bay Mall was more of a "unique mall with character". Artegon Lacked many stores and was very dead but the ceiling was well lit. I felt that if they got tenets for the Festival Bay mall it could of been better. The mall before just felt more tropical and cool yet hip. Just sad what happened.
  • The only thing left here is Bass Pro Shop and The Movie Theatre. The seating at the movies here is phenomenal, and I absolutely love it, but I don't understand why everything in this mall constantly goes out of business? Artegon was a great concept, and I truly love art and loved the uniqueness of each vendor. I have to say, that I'm sad to see them go. It's like a ghost town in there now. "Wow!"
  • I can't believe this place shut down. It was a true mall. There were dozens and dozens of unique vendors. Every single shop was very interesting and worth a look. It's so unfortunate all of these small businesses were kicked out. I don't know where else you can go to find this environment. I guess people just prefer the same bland mall that only has overpriced clothing instead. :/
  • Movie theater has a new bar, new sits updated. Early morning my market place is beautiful, alot of options. From paintings, to clothes, to furniture. It is truly breathtaking.
  • I am not one who enjoys malls, I do most of my shopping on Amazon, but this is a unique and interesting place. Local vendors, art, and stylish from one end to the other. I am unsure of its future, but it will be missed if it closes. The glow golf was fun!
