Go clubbing with the tanned and toned in the bars surrounding the Grand Bohemian Orlando (from $149), a 248-room, Art Deco hotel on central Orange Avenue. Avoid the hotel’s gaudy nineteenth- and twentieth-century art gallery, but check out the live jazz on Saturday nights from 9:30 to 1 a.m. in the Bösendorfer Lounge.
Relax in the rooftop jacuzzi at the Eõ Inn & Spa (from $99), one of the city’s few boutique hotels. Several worthwhile restaurants are just two blocks away at Thornton Park.
Wile away an afternoon soaking in the two blissfully uncrowded zero-entry pools at the ten-month-old Waldorf Astoria Orlando (from $199), the first Waldorf built outside New York. Spring for a north-facing room for an Epcot view and the accompanying nightly fireworks show at 9 p.m.
