Best Hotels Near SeaWorld Orlando
DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld
An official hotel partner of SeaWorld Orlando, DoubleTree is the top choice for families spending a lot of time at SeaWorld. Amanda Williams has this to say about DoubleTree by Hilton:
“There’s a reason it is called DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld…proximity to SeaWorld couldn’t be better. Really we just had to walk around the pool area and follow the signage to SeaWorld. After crossing one street that wasn’t too busy we were there! You walk right through the parking area where buses and shuttles pick up and drop off, so you’re saving the parking fee and walking just a few feet more than the poor saps that drove. Plus, you’re getting warmed up for the walking you’ll be doing around the theme park!”
Another TravelingMom said it was perfect for toddlers because of the playground and mini golf course.
TownePlace Suites by Marriott at SeaWorld
We recently stayed at the TownePlace Suites by Marriott at SeaWorld and loved it so much that we gave it the official Eat, Drink, and Save Money stamp of approval for affordable family travel.
We loved that it was close to SeaWorld, had a full kitchen, and had a delicious free breakfast every morning.

TravelingMom Tip: One of our favorite things to do when taking a vacation is to hire a photographer for family photos. This is a special gift and souvenir that we cherish. We use Flytographer to book a local photographer located in the area that we're traveling to. Use this link and you will get $25 off your photo session.
These are some of the hotels that are recommended by TravelingMoms:
Cabana Bay Beach Resort
Checking out Universal too? Consider staying at Cabana Bay Beach Resort because it’s not a far drive to SeaWorld, about a 10-15 minutes drive. The resort has a free shuttle included.
Lake Buena Vista Resort Village & Spa
If you are hoping to check out Disney and SeaWorld, Lake Buena Vista Resort Village and Spa is in a great location. It’s only a 15 minute drive, or you can take the free shuttle.
