The Lakeland Area

We hope you’ll find our Lakeland FL hotel to be a highly convenient location for all your needs during your stay in Central Florida. Courteous staff will greet you upon your arrival. We’re just off Interstate 4, adjacent to the Lakeland Square Mall. Midway between Orlando and Tampa, Lakeland is known as a favored location for many company headquarters. Business travelers find that we’re just five miles to the Lakeland Convention Center, and even closer to medical centers, Webster University, and the headquarters for Publix and  Pepperidge Farm, among other businesses. Leisure travelers visit Cypress Gardens, Walt Disney World, Busch Gardens, and other famous attractions easily reached from Lakeland. And, before heading out for the day, we serve our guests a delicious free Bright Side Breakfast® each morning.

Here in Central Florida there are dozens of pretty, swan-filled lakes in and around the town. Lakeland is right off the I-4, which connects us to Tampa, Orlando, and Daytona Beach. Enjoying a mild climate with temperatures rarely dropping below freezing even in winter, the area is located in the heart of an important citrus-growing area. Home to the Detroit Tigers in winter, Joker Marchant Stadium is a busy spot. We’re also proud to be home to several centers of learning: Southern College, Webster University, Southeastern Bible College, Southeastern University, and Florida Southern College, where the campus has the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings found anywhere. Open every day, the Lakeland Square Mall has dozens of stores, shops, and restaurants while downtown offers a delightful antique shopping district.
