This quaint downtown B&B casts a spell in authentic historic surroundings.. The Scene In the heart of Orlando's business district, this hideaway consists of an eclectic quartet of historic buildings surrounding a garden and brick courtyard. Accommodations include The Wellborn, an Art Deco specimen built in 1946 with porthole windows and classic ironwork; the Victorian Normant-Parry Inn, the city's oldest home, built in 1883; the I.W. Phillips House, a 1916 Edwardian-style estate; and the Dr. Phillips House, a Victorian mansion with gourmet restaurant, original hardwood floors and marble fireplaces.
The Details Leave the workout rooms and swimming pools to the resorts---this inn is about sophistication and style. Parlors here have been painstakingly decorated with fine antiques and period artworks. Depending on your choice of accommodation, you may find yourself surrounded by echoes of the Far East or the retro 1950s. Exquisite details throughout include a grand piano, Tiffany stained-glass window and blue velvet sofas. No matter which house you choose to stay in, a complimentary carafe of wine awaits.
