Today, Marriott International, which owns and operates the Swan and Dolphin hotels, announced a new hotel, The Cove. This new hotel will be apart of the Swan and Dolphin complex near Epcot but across the suite from Marriotts existing hotels, near the Fantasia Mini Golf Course.
The Cove will be an additional tower at the Swan and Dolphin and will include 349 rooms. When it’s finished, Marriott will have 2,600 rooms between the Swan, Dolphin, and Cove hotels.
Fred Sawyers, general manager of the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resort said, “I’m sort of like a dad. I love the Swan, I love the Dolphin, but the newest baby is going to be something special.”
Marriott says The Cove will be group-oriented and even- or convention focused, which will allow many groups that had outgrown The Swan and Dolphin to now be accommodated.
The Cove will include a rooftop venue for weddings or VIP groups to rent. Like the Swan and Dolphin hotels, The Cove will have walking access to Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Boardwalk, Yacht, and Beach resorts.
Sawyers said that he expects The Cove to open in less than two years.
