The Alfond Inn at Rollins in Winter Park, Fla., has been recognized for the second consecutive year as the best hotel in Florida according to the results of Condé Nast Traveler’s 29th annual Reader’s Choice Awards. The 112-room independently owned boutique hotel has a pool and fitness center, Hamilton’s Kitchen, the hotel’s award-winning restaurant and 10,000 square feet of meeting space. It distinguishes itself from other hotels through its art installations and offering of college scholarships. Located just outside of Orlando in Winter Park, the hotel is a 15-minute drive from downtown Orlando and a 30-minute drive from Walt Disney and Orlando International Airport.

BIG Wall Décor challenges the notion that owning large, beautiful artwork is only for the wealthy art connoisseur. With more than 20 years of experience printing for luxury brands, the BIG Wall Décor team uncovered a new print/framing solution that makes it easy and affordable (pieces start at $125) to display large-scale, on-trend artwork in trade show booths, at events, in the office, and at home.
