Travelers looking for a sophisticated lodging option that’s close to Orlando, but far from the hustle and bustle of the tourist corridor, should consider staying in DeLand at the Artisan Downtown.

New owners have given the historic South Woodland Boulevard property a complete top-to-bottom makeover, transforming the building into the town’s first boutique hotel.

The modern, minimalistic design touches of the eight spacious suites wonderfully compliment the hardwood floors and exposed brick of this iconic structure.

The first floor of the Artisan houses Sinatra’s¬†Ristorante, a full-service eatery featuring lunch and dinner options in an elegant setting. The hotel also boasts a rooftop event space that overlooks Woodland Boulevard.

Right outside the Artisan’s front door is one of the most highly-acclaimed Main Street communities in the nation with dozens of charming shops and unique restaurants, all locally owned and operated.

The Artisan Downtown DeLand is located less than 10 minutes from I-4, the interstate that connects Orlando and Daytona Beach.
