Hotel Landy opens in Orlando

Hotel Landy, a Tribute Portfolio hotel, has opened on Orlando’s Universal Boulevard, close to the city’s theme parks, the Orange County Convention Center and Orlando International Airport.

Formerly known as Hotel Kinetic, the renewed concept is owned by Monarch Alternative Capital and managed by HHM Hotels under its Echelon Luxury and Lifestyle division.

Each of the 400 guestrooms, ranging from standard and premium double queen and king configurations to junior and presidential suites, are family- and pet-friendly. With views of nearby Universal Studios and other Orlando landmarks, the guestrooms feature geometric shapes and patterns along the walls in rich teal and orange hues to evoke kinetic art, designed by Parker-Torres Design. All rooms are also outfitted with a fridge, science-focused literature for kids and custom, chemistry-themed La Bottega bathroom amenities.

“Hotel Landy’s one-of-a-kind narrative, with its fun patterns, bright colors and curated art throughout the guestrooms and public spaces, truly promises to stand out within Orlando’s booming hotel scene,” said Ian Glastein, cohead of real estate/managing principal, Monarch Alternative Capital. “This revitalized property is a testament to the ability of the asset management team and other partners to execute high-quality and complex repositioning projects, and we are proud to contribute to the perpetual energy and innovation in the heart of Orlando’s theme park action.”

Amenities include a resort-style pool; Landy Lawn, an open green space; nearly 10,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space; a yoga studio and gym; three dining venues conceptualized by hospitality management and concept development group APICII, including a poolside beverage truck; the 24/7 Kinetic Game Room featuring retro arcade games.

Hotel Landy will soon partnr with The Edit Retail to offer shoppable activations throughout the hotel, from curated boutiques to rotating poolside pop-ups.
