Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club
36750 U.S. 19 N
Palm Harbor, FL 34684

A massive pool complex with a 15-foot waterslide and a sandy beach are part of the allure of this sprawling resort.

9301 W. Fort Island Trail
Crystal River, FL 34429

On the shore of Kings Bay, this two-story plantation-style resort is on 232 acres near nature preserves and rivers. Although the resort's exterior looks like that of a huge Southern mansion, the rooms are more comfortable than palatial, with blond-wood furniture and wall-to-wall carpeting. Some rooms have patios.

5 Renaissance Vinoy Resort & Golf Club
Renaissance Vinoy Resort & Golf Club
501 5th Ave. NE
St. Petersburg, FL 33701

Built in 1925, making it the same vintage as the Don CeSar, the Vinoy is a luxury resort in a quiet, quaint neighborhood. Thoughtful renovations keep its yesteryear glamour and place on the National Register of Historic Places. Some of the units are cramped by today's standards, so ask for one of the spacious rooms for more comfort. Those on the bay side have better views of Tampa Bay. A tiny bay-side beach several blocks away is good for strolling (but not swimming). Transportation is provided to better beaches 30 minutes away. Other offerings include access to a Ron Garl-designed golf course with a stunning clubhouse, an expansive marina, and pool attendants who deliver drinks. Pros:

Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota
1111 Ritz-Carlton Dr.

8 Bohemian Hotel Celebration
Bohemian Hotel Celebration
700 Bloom St.
Celebration, FL 34747

Like everything in the Disney-created town of Celebration, this 115-room boutique hotel in the middle of the charming village borrows from the best of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. As in all Kessler hotels, art is at the heart of the design, and eclecticism rules. A total facelift in 2011 has lightened the lobby and the mood, replacing the dark woods and plantation-inspired furniture with pale, gold-splashed upholstry. The restaurant is more casual than the name Chop House implies, and food can be served in the bar, on the terrace overlooking the lake, or in your room. Rooms have plasma-screen TVs and high-speed Internet access. Even though it's less than 1 mile south of the U.S. 192 tourist strip in Kissimmee, the hotel's surroundings are serene, and the restaurants, shops, cinema, and more in downtown Celebration are a pleasant stroll away. Pros:

in the heart of Celebration village; rental bikes and golf carts make touring town a breeze; free shuttle to Celebration Golf and Fitness Center.

Cons:

daily fee for Internet and parking; shuttle to Disney is $25 per family of four, round-trip; need a rental car (or lots of cab money) to get anwhere other than Celebration. www.celebrationhotel.com. 115 rooms. In-room: Internet, Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurant, bar, pool, gym, business center, parking, some pets allowed. Credit cards accepted.

9 Doubletree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld
Doubletree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld
10100 International Dr.
Orlando, FL 32821

On 28 acres just south of the convention center, this hotel with its Indonesian-tinged decor, its mix of low, bungalow-style buildings and 17-story tower, offers families as well as conventioneers a warm welcome, literally and metaphorically. From the warm cookies handed out at check-in, to the lush linens and stylish decor in the guest rooms, and the full-service spa, visitors are offered a serene escape from the hectic I-Drive area. It's about midway between the airport and Disney, less than a mile from SeaWorld, and a five-minute drive from Universal. The hotel is tricky to get to, because even though the address is International Drive, the entrance is around the corner on Westwood Blvd. Pros:

on-site miniature golf course; free theme-parks shuttle.

Cons:

few shops and restaurants within walking distance. www.doubletreeorlandoseaworld.com. 1,094 rooms, 35 suites. In-room: safe, Internet, Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurants, golf course, pools, gym, spa, business center. Credit cards accepted.

10 Gaylord Palms Resort
Gaylord Palms Resort
6000 W. Osceola Pkwy.
Kissimmee, FL 34746

Built in the style of a grand turn-of-the-20th-century Florida mansion, this resort is meant to inspire awe. Inside its enormous atrium, covered by a 4-acre glass roof, are re-creations of Florida destination icons such as the Everglades, Key West, and old St. Augustine. A renovation scheduled for completion early in 2012 brings new carpeting, wallpaper, upgraded bed linens, bigger flat-screen TVs, and ergonomic work stations to the rooms, which carry on the Florida themes with colorful, tropical decorations. With two pool areas and the huge Relache spa, the hotel connives to make you never want to leave. Pros:

you could have a great vacation without ever leaving the grounds; free shuttle to Disney.

Cons:

daily $20 resort fee; rooms are pricey; not much within walking distance (although the hotel is so big that you can take quite a hike inside the building); shuttles to Universal and SeaWorld are available for a fee. www.gaylordpalms.com. 1,406 rooms, 86 suites.

11 Ginn Reunion Resort & Club of Orlando
Ginn Reunion Resort & Club of Orlando
7593 Gathering Dr.
Reunion, FL 34747

It's on 28,000 tranquil acres of a former orange grove, far from the bustle of I-4, and yet it's only 12 minutes from Disney. A stay here includes access to three private world-caliber golf courses designed by Tom Watson, Arnold Palmer, and Jack Nicklaus. (And the property adjoins the ANNIKA Academy, operated by LPGA great Annika Sorenstam, if you want to polish your game.) The resort was developed as a residential and vacation-home complex, but its condo-style villas are available on a per-night basis. Activities include walking and horseback riding on meandering trails. Kids love the swim pavilion with a winding lagoon, wave pool, slide, and beach volleyball area. Pros:

secluded atmosphere; proximity to Disney and ChampionsGate area.

12 Hilton Orlando
Hilton Orlando
6001 Destination Pkwy.
Orlando, FL 32819

The target clientele for this award-winning hotel is clearly corporate groups, but Hilton doesn't forget the families: conventioneers appreciate the vast meeting space, the direct walkway to the Convention Center, the substantial restaurants and bars and the work desks with ergonomic chairs; the families, on the other hand, get three pools, a kids club, a basketball court, a tennis court, full-service spa, and shuttles to theme parks. From the spacious entry, with its striking chandeliers, to the restrained decor, the hotel exudes elegance. Pros:

three pools; free shuttle to SeaWorld; direct walkway to convention center

The hotel is part of the Bonnet Creek resort area, tucked into a corner of Disney World's own vast forest lands. Connected to the Waldorf by a convention hall, the hotel offers guests full use of facilities such as the Waldorf Astoria Spa by Guerlain and the Waldorf restaurants. Pros:

nothing within walking distance; you will need to rent a car; daily parking fee. www.hiltonbonnetcreek.com. 1,000 rooms, 36 suites. In-room: safe, Internet, Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurants, bars, golf course, pools, gym, spa, children's programs, business center, parking. Credit cards accepted.

1500 Masters Blvd.
ChampionsGate, FL 33896

Omni took over a 1,200-acre golf club with two Greg Norman-designed courses and a David Leadbetter academy to create this huge Mediterranean-style complex south of Disney. With a 70,000-square-foot conference center, the resort definitely attracts the corporate crowd. But there's family appeal, too, thanks to a lazy-river-style pool and excellent children's programs.

20 Rosen Plaza Hotel
Rosen Plaza Hotel
9700 International Dr.
Orlando, FL 32819

Harris Rosen, Orlando's largest independent hotel owner, is cornering the market on hotels in the I-Drive area; this one was totally renovated in 2010, with new tile in bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, and mini-refrigerators. Although it's essentially a convention hotel, leisure travelers like the prime location and long list of amenities. The caricature art in Jack's Place restaurant is worth checking out, as is the food. Rosen's father, Jack, worked at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York, and drew caricatures of many of the famous guests. Another plus is the BAGS service, which allows you to get your airline boarding pass and check your suitcases in the hotel lobby, so you can go straight to the gate at Orlando International. Pros:

within walking distance of I-Drive eateries and attractions; guests in all Rosen-owned hotels in Orlando get priority reservations at the 18-hole golf course at Rosen's Shingle Creek, a couple of blocks away; free shuttle to Universal.

Waldorf Astoria Orlando
14200 Bonnet Creek Resort La.
Orlando, FL 32821

Rooms are decorated with understated elegance, using black-and-white highlights against rich beige-and-gold neutrals. Beds and linens are as plush and comfy as you'll find anywhere in the world. If you want a butler, one is available. If you want a massage, the Guerlain spa exudes relaxation the minute you walk in the door.
