Paramount Hospitality Selected to Manage International Dr. Hotel

 Orlando, FL, June 11, 2012 – It was announced last week that Paramount Hospitality Management, LLC was selected to operate and manage a recently closed hotel in the heart of world-famous International Drive. Paramount’s plans call for the hotel to be kept closed during renovation, and reopened in late Fall, 2012. It will be repositioned and re-named as the Avanti Resort, marketed independently without a “flag” affiliation, serving the upper-mid-market, for both families and business travelers.

Improvements to the 652-room resort include complete renovation of all rooms, featuring all-new bedding, furniture and fixtures. A new, contemporary styling will permeate all rooms and the entire resort.

Some of the resort’s features and benefits will include an expanded pool area with a large sandy-beach area for the children, a kids’ interactive play area, zero-entry section and a new 3′ to 4′-deep pool. An all-new pool bar and grill, interactive game room and fitness center will flank the pool area.

The Avanti Resort adds to Paramount Hospitality’s successful Orlando resort roster, in addition to Floridays Resort Orlando (rated #1 on TripAdvisor of Orlando Hotels) and The Point Orlando Resort (rated in the top 10 on TripAdvisor of Orlando Hotels). “I’m excited about introducing the Avanti Resort to the Orlando and International Drive market,” said Marco Manzie, president of Paramount Hospitality Management, LLC. “The Avanti’s unique configuration of rooms, its innovative features and benefits, complemented by its key location on world-famous International Drive will make it very appealing to a broad spectrum of Orlando visitors.”

Situated in the heart of International Drive, south of Sand Lake Road at Austrian Court, the Avanti Resort will appeal to families wishing to be near Universal Orlando® Resort, Wet ‘n Wild® and SeaWorld® Orlando. A number of dining, shopping and entertainment venues are within easy walking distance from the resort. Frequently scheduled theme park shuttles and the iRide Trolley will offer convenient transportation to the resort’s guests. Plus, the Avanti Resort is less than a mile from the Orlando Convention Center, making it a natural choice for convention/conference attendees wishing to be close-by, without paying the premium price of some of the larger hotels.

More than 3,000 square feet of flexible meeting space will provide comfortable venues for a variety of small groups, family reunions, weddings or training sessions. Full catering and A/V support will be available.

A unique combination of room-types will appeal to small and large families alike, as well as business travelers. Double Rooms will sleep up to 4 on 2 full-size beds. King Rooms (sleeping up to 4) will offer a king-size bed, some with Jacuzzi tub. Some King rooms will have also have one or two Double Rooms directly connecting, sleeping up to 10. And King-Suites will also include a King-size sleeper sofa, with separate living room area, mini-fridge and microwave. Rooms for guests with disabilities and laundry facilities in each building will be available. Further details about the resort, employment opportunities and the progress of the renovation are available at the resort’s Website,, and at their Facebook page:
