One year ago, in August 2013, The Alfond Inn opened its doors in historic Winter Park. Since opening, the Inn has established itself as a venue for The Alfond Collection of Contemporary Art for Rollins College, an extension of the Cornell Fine Art Museum at Rollins College's collection on display in the hotel's public areas. The Alfond Inn earned a prestigious AAA Four Diamond status just eight months after opening and has become the hub for top-tier CEO association meetings in the greater Orlando area. Weddings and fundraising events are also a specialized niche in Winter Park's very social community. Hamilton's Kitchen, the Inn's restaurant, has quickly become a bright light in the dynamic restaurant scene in Winter Park, and a dining destination for Greater Orlando.
