Love the suite life? Here are two new (and one newly renovated) spaces that you'll want to check out...
When it opens this summer, the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort will have plenty to offer a wide range of guests. But we say the top digs will be the Royal Suite on the 16th floor, which can be configured for extended family trips—by adding up to eight connecting rooms, it can have as many as three living rooms and nine bedrooms. In its classic configuration, it covers 3,300 square feet and Its 1,000-square-foot terrace has views of the Magic Kingdon's fireworks and can accommodate eight people for al fresco dining. When the Florida weather is less cooperative, the indoor dining room also seats eight, and families can spread out in a living room, family room and media room. (And when mom or dad needs to get some work done, there's a private office as well.)
Then there's the Presidential suite, which has some nice tech touches, including motorized drapes that are controlled from a central touch pad system. A media screen and projector are concealed in the ceiling and drop down electronically when guests want to watch TV or a movie. And the terrace covers a respectable 800 square feet and includes a dining area for eight.
Bonus: The hotel is offering a "Suites Experiences" top-floor buy-out that combines the Royal Suite and all of its adjacent rooms with the three-bedroom Presidential Suite. When the floor is booked for one party, the elevators to the floor will be programmed to recognize the suite room keys, offering some extra security and exclusive access. A full-floor buy-out also comes with a private concierge. Take a look at the floorplan for the full-floor buyout:
Can't wait till summer? (Neither can we.) In the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh's has just unveiled its Kingdom Suite, which covers the 48th and 50th floors and sprawls out over 3,553 square feet, offering top views of the city and a dining room for 12. There's also a private pantry and bar for those who don't want to go downstairs to eat, and a family media room for unwinding after a long day out. The Master Bedroom has a separate dressing rooms and a private vanity for primping in style.
