When the Waldorf Astoria Collection became just that — a collection of hotels, not merely one storied entity in Manhattan — Hilton tacked the brand onto a few already-standing properties that warranted an extra push of posh.

But scheduled for Oct. 1, the “first-ever newly built Waldorf Astoria outside of New York,” the 497-room Waldorf Astoria Orlando, will open for business alongside the new 1,000-room Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek. Together the development is being described as Hilton’s largest project in history.

And even though it’s affiliated with the fancypants old-school Waldorf-Astoria moniker, Bonnet Creek is being hyped with some social networking gimmicks that are totally on trend. Recently they offered a free night at Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek to each of the hotel’s first 90 fans on Facebook. Not bad!

Of course, they’ve surpassed the 90-fans mark now, so don’t go rushing off to get your free room. But we’re thinking (and hoping) that it’s a sign of more freebies to come, so you might want to become a fan if Orlando is on your radar. In their words: “Don't be discouraged if you aren't one of our first 90 fans. We will be posting our page with updates and specials exclusive to our facebook fans so stay tuned!”
