Demolition Starts for The Delaney Hotel and Delaney’s Tavern in Downtown South

The Delaney Hotel and Delaney's Tavern in Downtown South

The Delaney Hotel and Delaney’s Tavern has moved into its next phase of construction, with official demolition beginning this week.

The demolition event of the 39,000-square-foot building on October 18, was attended by elected officials, business leaders and members of the community, and gave an inside look into the highly anticipated hotel and restaurant.

Attendees then donned hard hats and picked up sledgehammers to help kick off the second phase of construction.

The $12 million project will include complete renovation and interior rebuild of the three-story building conveniently located across Orange Avenue from the Orlando Health campus, and adjacent to the historic Delaney Park neighborhood.

Projected opening date for the 54-room boutique hotel, and 6,000 square foot bar and restaurant is scheduled for May 2017. For more information on the hotel, visit, or for information on the restaurant.
