Welcome to the Amway Grand Plaza, where every stay is marked by a memorable moment. Whether it's a stroll through the Pantlind Lobby, the great view from one of our Glass Tower rooms, the classical architecture, or your first bite of the Forbidden Apple at The 1913 Room. The Amway Grand Plaza is much more than a hotel. It's a true destination.

Since we are an operating business we have certain hours that our building has to be open to the public beyond the Artprize hours. Due to this any artwork on display here has the potential to be viewed above and beyond the minimum set hours. This came in handy for a lot of our Artprize guests last year that didn't want to fight the crowds or had to work in the evening. We had many guests stop in in the morning or early afternoon to view the work as well as some classes that took field trips here. We welcome and encourage this.

Working delightfully as equal yet opposite, both restaurants offer distinctive ambiance and exceptional cuisine.
