Flamingo Crossing Hotels

Photo update as of Thursday, Feb. 25. While the hotels are open, there are still construction details being taken care of. Not every amenity is available yet, but will be soon. (Not sure why I did this....it's not even a Disney property.)

The two hotels share the pool, which has ample seating areas on both sides. Guests of one hotel are not able to enter the lobby or dining facilities at the other hotel, as all doors from the pool area are key fob entry. The large fitness center is in the background.

Between the two hotels at the pool is this yet unfinished interior space on the left, behind the plywood panels. (Snack bar? Recreation?)

The one hot tub is in the background, behind the red barrier ribbon. The fitness center is in the right background.

To the left of the fitness center are self-service, gas barbeque grills.

In keeping with the sports marketing, beyond the parking lot in front of the Towneplace Suites hotel is this shelter with gas barbeque grills, and two batting cages.

That looks to be the exact same setup and layout as the Fairfield and Springhill at SeaWorld.

We've stayed at the Springhill suites 4 times now. No traffic, no parking fees, nice rooms, free breakfast, low cost, nice amenities, amazing short drive onto property. Shh, don't spoil our little Paradise hideaway!

Orlando Business Journal is reporting two more third party hotels comings to the Flamingo Crossing area which brings the total to a number I don't remember. The article is behind a paywall but according to the site which cannot be named they will be a Holiday Inn, an eight-story building with 173 rooms, and a Hyatt House with five-story and six-story building mash up with 148 rooms.

are there any restaurants? Still waiting for IHOP.
 
I'm still waiting to see some of the supporting businesses open there - gas stations, restaurants, etc. Currently, you have to drive either to Winter Garden to the North or Kissimmee/192 to the South. Maybe with this rapidly increasing hotel count we'll see enough folks to support such businesses

I stayed there in January (Springhill Suites). Very nice. While the drive isn't at close as DS, I think it's actually a quicker drive as it isn't in a high traffic area -- yet. I parked at every park so was able to follow the exits directly there easily.

I like Hampton Inns. Considering the close proximity, I will be interested in seeing the pricing compared to the on property Motel 6...I mean value resorts.
