Celebration, a residential community created by a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company, includes pastel-colored downtown shops and restaurants.
With its early 1900s Florida-coastal architecture, Celebration Hotel is a tranquil image along the town's lakefront: a three-story building with a brick courtyard in front and a veranda offering wicker-and-leather seating beneath woven, big-paddle ceiling fans
The lobby includes more fans, along with wood rocking chairs, plush divans, a piano, and rugs on hardwood floors.
A sunning-and-sitting deck overlooking Celebration's lily-pad lake runs along the rear of the hotel. A small pool anchors one end of the deck; an eight-person spa tub anchors the other. In between, street lamps illuminate night strolls, umbrella tables provide daytime shade, and a sculpture of Chief Osceola reminds guests they're in Seminole country.
Between the hotel lobby and the deck is a cool, brick veranda furnished with wood rocking chairs and ceiling fans for relaxed contemplation of the water and of joggers/walkers using a path encircling the lake.
