My 4 Favorite Things About Meliá Orlando Celebration

By Tamika Mapp, Publisher of Macaroni Kid Harlem October 12, 2022

Fall is one of my favorite seasons because it's close to my two favorite holidays — Thanksgiving and Christmas. This year on the first day of fall, I spent it at Meliá Orlando Celebration, and it felt like I came home after a long day of work. This was the first time I experienced a hotel that loves dogs as much as I do and believes that wellness comes first before anything.

1. Clean and Spacious Rooms

Have you been to a hotel where everyone doesn't have any space? Well, this isn't something you have to worry about at Meliá Orlando Celebration, and they made check-in a breeze at 1:04 am. So this was a big plus! 

I love that my kids can watch their movies while I watch mine. Each room has modern-day furnishings, a large sitting area, a big bathroom, a refrigerator, a microwave, a stovetop for cooking, and a private balcony. Our room also had a fold-out couch bed, so whether you are a family of 2 or 7 in size, you can all fit comfortably. 

I appreciate the extra steps Meliá Orlando Celebration takes before and after a guest leaves their hotel, and you notice from the first time you walk into their rooms. I discovered the hotel partnered with Surfacide®, The Global Leader in UV Light Technology. This system uses a trio of light-emitting robots to kill many common viruses and has been validated to inactivate SARS-CoV2. I appreciate this hotel taking the extra steps to protect its guests and staff so I know my family is safe while we travel. 

2. I don't have to leave my dog behind

I often feel guilty about leaving Sparkle (my havashu) behind, especially on long trips. I don't have to worry about that now because Meliá Orlando Celebration is a dog-friendly hotel with a dog park to accommodate pet owners while on vacation. They have plenty of outdoor space for your dog to play and socialize.

I never saw a hotel that loved dogs as much as I do! They even have the cutest steak dinner to treat them with, and you don't have to bring the dog bowl because they provide that as well. Your dog would love the royal treatment. To make your stay easy with your pet, please call Meliá Orlando Celebration for information on conditions and applicable fees.

3. OMG! Their wellness and fitness rooms are AMAZING!!!

If wellness and exercise are important to you, this is the place to be! I have never been to a hotel with special guest rooms for wellness and exercise until this fall. 

I had the opportunity to try out the Mirror Room, and it's worth every cent. The Mirror has over 100,000+ classes on demand to meet your exercise goals. I got to try out restorative yoga there. I assumed it was just another piece of equipment; it was more than that! It helps me maintain the correct posture, and I love that it helps guide me to get the pose correctly. 

The other special room they have is their Wellness room which has a Vitamin C shower to help keep your hair silky and your mood on point.

4. Close to all the main attractions

Meliá Orlando Celebration is close to major Orlando attractions such as Walt Disney World®, Universal Orlando™, SeaWorld Orlando™, and others. If you bring a car, private parking on-site is included in your stay. They also provide free transportation to the parks. 

If you are feeling adventurous with your family, you can hop on the Line 50 bus to the line 8 bus; it will take you 2 hours, but it's $2, and your family can learn and see other parts of Orlando. We spent the day at Disney Springs, and we loved it! The Coach outlet was on the top of my list, and I'm so happy that I came because this cute bag was on sale, and I am the new owner   I also treated myself to a turkey leg; you can't go to an amusement park and not get the turkey leg. I'm so happy that this hotel is so close to Disney Springs. 

The best part is that you can party all night with your family and make new friends simultaneously. I love how this is a home away from home. The staff is amazing, and your children won't want to leave. 

If you are looking for your next staycation, this is it!
