Antonio Baez, Managing Director of the Melia Orlando Celebration hotel, has been named Hotelier of the Month for March in Spring 2022 by the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association (FRLA), nominated by the Regional Board of Directors and the Allied Ambassadors Committee for the organization’s Orlando Chapter.  Baez will receive an award of recognition at FRLA’s December Members of the Year celebration.

“It’s an absolute honor to be recognized by FRLA among the top hoteliers in Orlando and in Florida,” said Baez.  “We strive every day to reflect our goals of achieving excellence.”

Since its opening in September 2011, Meliá Orlando Celebration has grown into one of the most popular hotels in the greater Orlando area, and a sought-after destination for families seeking a more relaxed downtown setting. The 289-room property offers old-world charm with new-world design and contemporary comfort. Beyond the hotel, quaint stores are just a short stroll away, allowing guests a break from the theme-park crowds, but not the excitement.

An official Walt Disney World Good Neighbor® hotel, Meliá Orlando Celebration is located just five miles from all the Disney parks, and within close proximity to other major attractions including Universal Studios, and SeaWorld.  The hotel will be opening a brand new two-floor restaurant this summer called The Wilson, owned and operated by In Good Company Hospitality (IGC), a New York-based restaurant group overseeing several venues across Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.
