This glittering East Coast destination is home to numerous big, buzzing group hotels, including the famous Caesars Atlantic City.

From Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort to the Hyatt Regency Orlando, these huge group hotels offer great accessibility to the theme parks of the city.
Orlando, Florida is one of the most-visited US cities, so of course there are countless giant group hotels to cope with demand – here are 5 of the best.
Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort
The largest of all of Orlando’s group hotels, Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort boasts 2,200 rooms that are perfect for families and groups of all sizes. The suites sleep up to six, complete with kitchenettes that include a microwave and a refrigerator. This budget-friendly three star is of course part of the Universal Orlando complex, meaning all the individual parks are highly accessible. It’s known for the beautiful Cabana Courtyard and Pool, and the Galaxy Bowl bowling alley. It still feels box-fresh after its 2014 opening, with a retro 60s/70s vibe running throughout the resort that’s at once throwback and modern.
Orlando Marriott World Center
Shortly behind Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort in terms of size and scale is the Orlando Marriott World Center, with 2,009 rooms. It’s a four star hotel with no less than seven suite types: all with a sofa bed for additional guests, and many with balcony views of the hotel’s 18-hole golf course and swimming pool (which has two 200-foot waterslides). There’s also a full service spa on site, plus a shuttle service to Walt Disney World available for guests.
Hyatt Regency Orlando
One of Orlando’s most centrally-located group hotels, the Hyatt Regency Orlando has 1,641 rooms across 32 levels. This actually makes it the second-tallest building in metropolitan Orlando. It almost doubled in size after a massive 2010 renovation. For on-site dining, you could try Floridian food at Urban Tide or perhaps grab a steak at the Fiorenzo Italian Steakhouse. For classic American comfort food, head to B-Line Diner. You’ll see groups of business travelers as well as families and groups of friends here, as the hotel is connected to the massive Orange County Convention Center next door, which hosts huge conferences every week.
Grande Lakes Orlando
With 1,584 rooms all boasting opulent luxury, Grande Lakes Orlando – comprised of a JW Marriott and a Ritz Carlton Orlando – is one of the world’s leading luxury group hotels.

Meanwhile, there are no less than 12 dining options to choose from, plus 500 acres of parkland to explore.

Finally on our list of group hotels in Orlando is the four star, 1,501-room Rosen Shingle Creek, which covers 255 acres. Of the rooms, 191 are suites. It has a distinctive style, combining Spanish and 1900s Floridian tones.

Indeed, the grounds are steeped in natural beauty, with Shingle Creek acting as the headwater of the stunning Florida Everglades. Indeed, this is the perfect spot for exploring the diverse natural landscapes of the second most popular US state for tourism (behind California) – not to mention the theme parks!
From the Hotel Pennsylvania to the Row NYC, these are the most gigantic hotels in The Big Apple with rooms for groups!
Whether traveling as a family or a business, these NYC hoteling behemoths are used to offering rooms for groups – the largest has 1,931 of them!
New York Hilton Midtown
Our first hotel is so iconic, it’s hosted every US President since John F. Kennedy. New York City’s largest hotel, located within walking distance of Central Park, the Museum of Modern Art and the Rockefeller Center, boasts a mammoth 1,931 rooms. This popular four star can also lay claim to the impressive achievement of having the largest hotel fitness centre in Midtown, clocking in at over 8,000 square feet. For brick oven pizzas and seasonal salads, try the hotel’s resident restaurant Herb N’ Kitchen.
New York Marriott Marquis
With 1,877 rooms for groups, the second largest hotel in New York City is another four star and once again enjoys an amazingly central location, among the bright lights of Times Square. Meanwhile, attractions such as Madame Tussauds and Radio City Music Hall are only a stone’s throw away. The hotel’s glamorous restaurant The View specialises in group dining; serving traditional and modern American cuisine, it is the city’s only revolving restaurant, turning 360 degrees every hour and offering an inimitable view of the city at 48 stories.

All rooms boast 37 inch flat screen HDTVs and the exclusively-developed Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Bed, known for its high cotton count sheets and feather down/hypoallergenic pillows.

Dine on steak at the hotel’s The Statler Grill, or grab a light bite at the City Perk cafe in the lobby, which is open an impressive 24 hours a day. Nearby attractions include the Empire State Building, Macy’s department store and Madison Square Garden.

For hotels perfect for groups of travelers with a focus on cool, look no further than The Hoxton, the Z et al
First on our list of group hotels is this fabulous four star is located, somewhat confusingly, in London’s enduringly cool east London neighborhood of Shoreditch. (The area actually known as Hoxton is five minutes north of here.)
There are plenty of edgy coffee shops, statement restaurants on The Hoxton’s doorstep, but the hotel’s own sprawling reception area, with its plush trendy furniture, is known as a hang out area/work base for arty locals. Meanwhile the Hoxton Grill, with its leather booths and open plan kitchen, always has a buzzy atmosphere.
Known for its chic rooms and good value for money, the hotel has been such a hit since opening in 2006, that other properties have since opened in Paris and Amsterdam, along with a second in London. More are slated for New York City, Chicago and LA.
The Ace Hotel London Shoreditch
The Ace Hotel Group of course originated in Portland, Oregon, also known as the birthplace of the hipster. (Check out the TV show Portlandia). Its Shoreditch outpost is one of its biggest openings in recent years. (It the four star Ace Hotel London Shoreditch is. The glamorous rooftop bar boasts a stellar view of east London.
Like The Hoxton, one of The Ace Hotel London Shoreditch’s most defining characteristics is the gigantic co-working space that greets you on arrival. The fashionable crowd that populate it are typical of the area and the clientele in the strikingly austere rooms upstairs.
Also, be sure to check out the rooftop bar – it boasts one of the best views of East London around.
Nobu Hotel Shoreditch
For the more monied and international hipster, the first London hotel from iconic hospitality brand Nobu (co-founded by Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro no less), opened last year, offers the ultimate in sophisticated cool.
Opened in 2017, it’s an oasis of five star and style that might have felt more natural in well-heeled Mayfair, but in reality contrasts pleasingly with the ramshackle warehouses and graffiti-strewn streets of Shoreditch. The flawless Japanese-influenced decor adds a heavy dose of international flavour, and the cuisine, of course, is world class.
The coolest thing about The Nobu Hotel, though, apart from its location on the quiet Willow Street, is its unforgettably modern architecture: it’s the most visually-stunning of this list of group hotels. Jagged, overhanging floor slabs at one end giving the impression of a rectangular building that’s been snapped in half.
The Z Hotel Shoreditch
Conversely to Nobu’s offering, the Z Hotel Shoreditch is one the most affordable stopovers in the area, and skews towards the younger hipster. Double rooms start at a very reasonable £75, and how’s this for added value: there’s complimentary wine and cheese offered to guests each evening between 5pm and 8pm, and free ice cream after 11pm. Oh, and free Wi-Fi!
While other budget hotels are often literally devoid of style and personality, The Z enjoys a cool, colourful and quirky aesthetic.
The hotel also enjoys an enviable location: the well-connected transport hub that is Old Street station is a short walk away. It’s definitely one of the busiest and nosiest pockets of East London, but you won’t know it at The Z, as every room is expertly soundproofed.
M By Montcalm London Shoreditch Tech City
Finally on our list of group hotels is the M By Montcalm London Shoreditch Tech City. It’s got a pretty grand and futuristic-sounding name, and a pretty grand and futuristic-looking exterior to match.
With its pointed tip, this 18-storey tower built in 2015 seems to jut in impossible directions, playing tricks on the eyes. It’s like something out of a science fiction movie, and is easily the most striking building in the neighborhood, and something of an emblem of East London Tech City geek chic.
It’s techy inside too: guests are checked in with iPads, and in-room tablets can be used to adjust the air con and lighting. There are also 37-inch TVs in the rooms and free, high-speed Wi-Fi. The look and feel is impeccably modern.
