The Buena Vista Palace Resort & Spa

The Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace is a 1,014-room resort located on 27 acres (11 ha) directly across from the Disney Springs Marketplace. The 23-acre (9.3 ha) hotel, which opened in March 1983, is among seven hotels that make up the Disney Springs Resort Area. The Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels are located on the property of the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, United States, but are not operated by Disney.

Branding history[edit]

The Buena Vista Palace Resort & Spa was rebranded and renamed as the Wyndham Palace Resort & Spa in November 1998 (the hotel's owners, who had acquired the hotel a year earlier, had purchased Wyndham earlier in the year). In 2005, the Blackstone Group acquired Wyndham and announced plans to launch a new brand LXR Luxury Resorts. LXR Luxury Resorts would consist of 21 premium properties wholly owned by the Blackstone Group, including the former Wyndham Palace which reverted to its original name in 2006. The hotel was sold to the Hilton Corporation in 2015, and has since been renamed as the "Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace".

Hilton acquisition[edit]

In 2015, the Hilton Corporation acquired the hotel. With the acquisition, a multi-million dollar renovation of the entire hotel commenced.[citation needed]
