Reviewed 31 July 2011

Just returned from our 7th visit to this hotel from Leeds in the UK. Wouldn't go anywhere else and already booked to go back next year. Staff friendly especially in the deli bar and the grounds are beautiful and well kept. Rooms nice and clean and location near Sea World and Aquatica ideal. We have stayed at other hotels on i-drive and this is by far the best. As long as you get a garden facing room. Roll on next year when we will be back. And don't forget the Orena Sports Bar over the road. Best sports bar ever.

Stayed: July 2011, travelled with friends

Stayed a week at the Doubletree with my 2 daughters (15 and 18 yrs old). Room (not in the Tower) was an OK size, bathroom was tiny/cramped which was a negative. Would have liked the room to have had a small fridge. No free room wireless though you could get free wireless in the main hotel lobby/swimming pool. There was also an internet area with PCs but another negative point was how slow the internet connections were, and also that the PCs were all set up differently and on some PCs you could access some content but on another PC the same content couldn't be accessed. Frustrating. Other (minor) negatives: on two days after spending all day out we came back to find our room hadn't been made up; keycards stopped working on several occassions and had to go to reception to get cards re-programmed. I wasn't the only one experiencing this problem, each time I did this there was someone before or after me with the same problem. We didn't take any meals at the hotel. Breakfasts were taken at the Village Inn, a diner literally across the road from the hotel. Good value (<$10/person for a substantial breakfast) relative to what you'd pay/get at the hotel. Made mistake of having dinner one night at the Village Inn: not a great experience.

Had to pay $10/night (excl. tax) for parking.

Plus points, good location - literally next door to Seaworld, 15-20 min drive to Universal Studios and Disney theme parks, and to the Florida Mall and Premier Shopping Outlets.

Overall, OK hotel, good location. Some minor negatives which the hotel management could sort out easily enough. Would I come up - hmmm, possibly.

We were pleasantly greeted. The first front desk person was a very nice trainee who got our rooms wrong but they apologized and quickly correct the problem. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. To get to Sea World you can either take the free shuttle or walk out the back gate and cross over into Sea World even faster. The hotel also gives you discount passes and free express pass to be able to skip the lines on the rides.

The hotel property has several pools, a wonderful hot tub and lots of other thing to do. They also have a kid’s area if the parents need some time to themselves. The restaurants are nice include a little quick serve area that includes mini pizzas, wings and fountain sodas with free refills. We loved our stay here and will be back.

Room Tip: We loved the pool side rooms.

It is great that the location of the Doubletree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld worked well for your recent stay! The hotel has many amenities and should parents want some down time after a day at the parks, letting the kids head over to the Kids Club is a great idea! Thank you for your input regarding our hotel; we look forward to seeing you soon!

This hotel is great and the location is perfect. Because we were staying here we got great deals on sea world that you don't get anywhere else. But I do recommend you to ask for the special offers because they don't tell you. That's something that I recommend for the hotel to do in the future.
The cookie they give you when you get in is AMAZING.....

The only thing I would really recommend is that with so much.hotel competition.in the area they should at least give you free breakfast. Also parking is 10 $ a day. For us, we stayed 9 days and that was 90 dollars plus tax.

But over all its great, just a few things I recommend., for everything else the hotel is great.

Stayed at the Doubletree at Seaworld on a recent trip to Florida due to the affiliation with Seaworld and proximity to Discovery Cove, Aquatica and restaurants on International Drive. We stayed in the hotel "tower" which was well very cleaned and well maintained. Overall this hotel is conveniently located with easy access to Seaworld and sister parks. Staff was very welcoming and friendly during our stay. Great pool area with bar to relax. Only draw back was the entry and exit to the hotel property can be a bit confusing, and getting to the tower can be a walk depending on where you park. I would certainly stay here again on my next trip to Orlando.

There is a tower building and some detached buildings. It looks like they combined two previously separate hotels.

I stayed in the detached hotels which were basically like motel rooms. Was not overly impressed with the room. It didn't have the Doubletree feel that I am accustomed to.

The lobby of the tower building was very nice so I suspect those rooms are better and more Doubletree quality.

Staying at the Doubletree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld provides guests the opportunity to choose from multiple room type accommodations. To learn that your room did not exceed your expectations is disappointing. If there is ever anything we can do to improve your stay, we hope you won’t hesitate to bring it to our attention before leaving less than satisfied. For future stays, we would be happy to assist with finding the perfect accommodations for you and achieve the experience that you’ve come to anticipate from Doubletree.
