Expert reviews

Lonely Planet review:

“Contemporary white-walled elegance, a low-key welcoming vibe, colorful interiors in well-appointed rooms give this Winter Park gem a distinct style. There’s a lovely rooftop pool and an excellent restaurant that serves locally sourced food on courtyard tables.”

New York Times review:

“In the pedestrian-friendly village of Winter Park, the Alfond Inn at Rollins offers resort amenities, including a rooftop pool, a restaurant that champions Florida products, and a rotating contemporary art collection from the local Cornell Fine Arts Museum.”

Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Orlando.

Telegraph review:

“When you want boutique feel but expansive style, Orlando’s ritzy northern suburb of Winter Park has the hotel for you, providing a tranquil alternative to the theme park frenzy. Its primary appeal is to couples and visitors to nearby Rollins College of Fine Arts, and it boasts an art-gallery-chic air of refinement.”

Exceptional propert and staff.

Great hotel. I’ll stay there again on my next visit.

Everyone was so friendly, and smiling all the time. The food was excellent, the accommodations also excellent. I love the way they decorated the lobby with some great art. Here’s the best part. The hotel is a non-profit. All the profits go to scholarships to Rollins College students, a small, local, liberal arts college. It felt good to be part of that process, knowing that my expenses at the hotel (which can compete with any others) goes to students trying to jump start their careers rather than give the money to some corporation.

It was all good.

beautiful, walkable too Town, the art was amazing.



12 June 2023

The service is 5 star, and the facility and it’s art are lovely, but if possible wait until the remodeling construction

Perfect location and very friendly and helpful staff. The art on the walls is beautiful. Hamilton’s has a great brunch.

While the housekeeping kept the rooms clean, the windows were really dirty (maybe due to construction dust). All 3 elevators broke ), but we had to wait at 11:15 pm until a service elevator was fixed so we could get to our room. my elderly mother in law can’t take stairs.

We had a beautiful stay at the Alfond inn. Highly recommended if you are in and around winter park.

Beautiful location! Right next to the Rollins college campus. We loved the winter park area with all the restaurants and lovely shops around.

The WiFi in the hotel was terrible.


30 May 2023

Very good

I can see why the facility is getting renovated. The rooms definitely need an update


20 May 2023

6 April 2023

On going construction is the only negative to this lovely established hotel

Perfect walkable location. Lovely public areas and nice rooms.

When staying in Winter Park - or even Orlando - this is the only hotel to choose!

The gorgeous Alfond Inn is located close to the historic and and charming Park Avenue. The hotel is dog friendly and features lovely grounds for strolling, dining, cocktails, or walking dogs. There are exquisite and unique art installations throughout the hotel. The atrium is positively gorgeous - featuring a grand piano and prismatic art globes that cast brilliant colors throughout. There is a very good restaurant and bar within the hotel and room service is also an option. Meeting and confers rooms are also available. The valet staff is remarkable; the service and professionalism is top notch. The entire hotel staff is gracious and efficient. Snacks and beverages are available for purchase in the lobby. There is also an ATM if needed.

While the hotel is dog friendly, I do wish there were dog waste stations somewhere on the grounds. There aren’t any outdoor trash cans for disposal and I don’t want to bring the dog waste bag inside for disposal. When walking downtown this isn’t an issue, but for late night or early morning quick outings with a pet, it is a conundrum.

happy staff was able to accommodate us for a slightly earlier check in so we could prepare for an event we were attendin

location great, beautifully decorated, staff exceptional, rooms clean, decorated well, beautiful room amenities, good entertainment in bar

Great choice for my mother daughter trip.

I loved the art. the rooms were clean and comfortable and the location was great.

restaurant closed early


5 August 2022

I loved everything about the hotel except the room.

Location was great. The lobby and grounds of the hotel are beautiful. The staff was very accommodating. I liked the shampoo/conditioner in the bathroom and the fact that they weren't small containers creating more waste in our landfills...

Our room was ok. There really wasn't anything special about it. The bathroom was way outdated and blah... The bed was super comfortable with nice sheets and pillows... Too much money for an ok room. Big disappointment after the rest of the hotel being so stunning...


27 July 2022

definitely worth it. would stay again and recommend to friends.

very friendly staff, wonderful building, amazing location, top notch valet parking services.

rooms a little outdated no bar service at the pool


18 July 2022

Friendly and luxe. The perfect stay.

Everything about the Alfond whispers "quality." One of the nicest places I've ever stayed. I've been there at least annually since they opened, and they only get better.

There's nothing to improve upon. Total perfection.


5 July 2022

great getaway spot!!

the staff was awesome, especially EJ!!


21 June 2022

An excepcional hotel, everything to the detail from the beginning to end! Bar and restaurant a plus!

Location, design and every was amazing



20 June 2022

A great stay - while we traveled for kids sports!!

We had an exceptional stay at the Alfond. We traveled with our daughters lacrosse team & families. We all decided to stay at the Alfond because of the location and access to activities (shopping, ice cream etc.) for the kids to do in our down time. We also traveled with our dogs which made us and them SOOOOO happy... We had them with us most of the day ad did not leave them unattended in the room - we will definitely stay there again..

It rained during our stay so kids could not swim - BUT wont hold the Alfond responsible LOL


12 June 2022

Very well located for my objectives. A great stay.

Room was very nice. I was easily able to set thermostat for my personal & unusual warmer room temp. But the room was also quite dark. Having one seating area that could brighten up would help my older eyes.


4 June 2022

Very relaxing and enjoyable stay!

Very nice facility and pool area. The location was great to walk to restaurants and bars in Winter Park’s Park Ave area. The staff was excellent and went above and beyond.

The room was clean and spacious with nice amenities but could use an updating, which appears to be in the works.


21 May 2022

Walkable location, great pool

The staff were friendly and helpful, and the pool area was beautiful. We liked being able to walk to Park Avenue restaurants and shops. The room was nice and quiet. There were robes and an umbrella for our use, which were thoughtful touches.

I found the price of the hotel rather high, and the bed was a little too soft for my back. Emails from staff could be more timely and professional: I never heard back about my request to check in an hour early, and another message was just a simple sentence, like, "Our pool is open during renovation." It was missing politer things like "thank you for your regards" which just take a second to write and present a more caring image. Everything else was nice.

Grateful for the lobby coffee Loved the pool


27 April 2022

Treat yourself to a visit to The Alfond Inn!

Loooove the food! Breakfast is delicious! Bar food great. Recommend the Waldorf salad. Staff is beyond courteous. Love the Alfond. I was there for the wedding of my grandson.
