The Alfond Inn at Rollins College is a 107,000 sq ft, five-story hotel with 112 guest rooms. Intended to provide accommodations for visiting family members of Rollins College students, this high-end hotel is located on a tight site in a residential neighborhood adjacent to the main campus. The lower level boasts a 27-foot-high ceiling in the lobby foyer, 18-foot ceilings, a restaurant and dining room, and conference space. The second floor consists of guest rooms, a spa and fitness room, and a terrace with an outdoor stainless steel pool.
The inn’s interior evokes old Italy, with old world-style finishes, including Venetian plaster. The exterior consists of stucco with cast stone features, a mansard and flat barrel tile roof, and balconies with elaborate metal railings. The hardscape courtyard sits atop a 13,000-cubic-foot exfiltration vault.
The building’s systems include a chiller system, a boiler system, and a traction elevator system. For cost savings, all elevator mechanics are located within the elevator shaft.
