With more than 2,000 guest rooms, Marriott World Center in Orlando is one of the biggest resorts in the world and has been attracting visitors for nearly three decades. Sprawling over 42,000 square meters of event space, restaurants, shops and recreational opportunities, the golf and spa resort is a premier venue – and one where elevator downtime can result in an unpleasant guest experience.


A popular leisure destination as well as prestigious conference site, Marriott World Center is populated by a blend of vacationing families, business professionals and conference attendees. Routine high occupancy translates into heavy elevator usage, a factor complicated by occasional bursts of conference-related traffic. When the decision was made to modernize aging elevators, Marriott turned to KONE for a comprehensive solution. The result? A complex project completed months ahead of schedule. KONE returned back to the site to complete interior upgrades, including replacement of dated décor and installation of info screens used to keep guests informed about what’s happening at the resort and local attractions.
