Be Among the First to Enjoy the Gaylord Palms Renovation

The Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center boasts the full effects of a $50 million renovation project, completed since SLAS was last there in 2011. Included in the renovation are two new dining venues offering lower priced entrees, a brand new "Coquina Lawn" area with open lawn for leisure activities, three fire pits for informal networking, and two new pool areas. The new two-story sports bar is centrally located between the hotel guest room atrium and the convention center space, making it a great meeting place and the perfect transition point between work and community. Additionally, all guest rooms have been upgraded with contemporary furnishings and the highest levels of functionality, along with details including fine linens and flat screen TVs.

Guests staying at the Gaylord Palms also have access to free scheduled shuttle service to and from Downtown Disney to enjoy dinner or off-site functions, as well as discounted airport transfer/shuttle service between the Gaylord and Orlando International Airport.
