Waldorf Astoria Orlando opening in October

The 497-room Waldorf Astoria Hotel is opening near Disney World in Orlando in October, bringing around 400 jobs with it. Hilton, the company that owns Waldorf Astoria, is also opening two other hotels, the 1,400 room Hilton Orlando near the convention center, and the 1,000-room Hilton Bonnet Creek near Disney World. In total, these three hotels will bring 1,450 new jobs to Orlando. For information on jobs in housekeeping, front office, food and beverage, banquets and spa staff go to hiltonfamily.jobs.

On the Waldorf Astoria website, I thought it was neat that amongst the 36 photos on their Photos page, they included 2 photos of Orlando arts events: the ballet and the symphony. Also on their Local Attractions page, they list the Orlando Performing Arts Center, Orlando Museum of Art, Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, Orlando Ballet, Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, Orlando Shakespeare Festival, Orlando Science Center and the Harry P. Leu Gardens
