I don't remember ever riding the monorail here but I have to say it is pretty magical to see the castle pop up in the distance and then Space Mountain. We had a choice between the monorail and the Ferry but had just missed the ferry so we'll take that on the return journey to the parking lot.

Early start today with the plan to get to Epcot by 9am for the rope drop (Opening time for those not fluent in Disney lingo). That plan quickly changed as we drove through the morning downpour. Since Epcot is all about walking around the lake and visiting the different countries,we figured it would be better to save it for a dry day. Plan B was to …

Now I see why The Walking Dead is set in Atlanta! When we finally make it to Orlando, it is torrential rain. Hello.........this is the Sunshine State. I am the driver, the windscreen wipers do not go fast and my body clock is telling me it is 4 am. Great!! Somehow we make it. Never have I been so glad to lie ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Orlando at SeaWorld
We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in March 2004. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was just okay but the waiters did a good job. Our daughter's birthday was on the second day of our stay. I had emailed the manager with a request for a birthday balloon to be left for her in our room. We were very surprised and pleased to find not only a balloon but a card signed by the staff and a birthday cake.
The entire hotel was clean bright & new looking...a pleasant offering for the money, at approximately $100/night. Location to Sea World, Discovery Bay, and the Convention Center can't be beat. Do not stay on the east side of the building. You will overlook a juvenile detension center which has a walled perimeter and barbed wire around the building entrances......kind of a downer when on vacation. The pool was cold.
Nice hotel big rooms clean. Well positioned especially for Disney and especially Seaworld. Quick tip when we went to seaworld we actually ended up parking nearer the hotel than the seaworld entrance. Its worth saving the $8 and just walking over.
On junction 71 of the I4. You need to take a sharp left just after the exit junction so be prepared to cross three lanes of traffic to get there
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for six days in February 2004 and were very pleased.
The rooms were clean and spacious with excellent facilities (TV, fridge, air con, microwave).
The i-ride trolley stops at the front door for easy access to bars and restaurants.
Pool and spa were a bit cold and cramped, but the fitness room was excellent.
Within easy walking of SeaWorld, but we didn't try the hotel courtesy bus to other parks.
Although I am in Orlando, for Valentine's Day my husband and I went to Sea World and the luau dinner and wanted to avoid the traffic and tolls of coming back for the 2nd day at Sea World. The room was very clean and had a coffee maker, microwave, and refrigerator. Very close to Sea World.
Nice Clean Hotel
We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn Seaworld for 4 days between Christmas and New Year's - and we were very pleased! It was great to be able to check in after a 2 day drive from Canada with no hassles. The Hotel was clean, the room was quite large with a microwave and fridge.
Location to Disney and Seaworld was perfect - 15 minutes at the most.
The kids really enjoyed the pool! The staff were friendly and the rooms were nicely cleaned each day.
It would be nice if the restaurant would serve an a la carte breakfast instead of only offering a continental and full buffett.
We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn Seaworld from December 22-26, 2003 for our honeymoon. We arrived at the hotel around 10am, and the staff was so kind to allow us to check in early and rest a bit before heading to the parks. They all cheered for us when we walked in and called attention to the face that we were newlyweds. The staff continued to make us feel special on every day of our trip, always saying good morning and good evening to us and making conversation.
The Only Way to Go
I recently stayed at this hotel in May because the other Hilton I wanted at the Walt Disney World was booked, so I took a chance, and I'm glad I did. The staff is wonderful and thoughtful from the moment you walk in and the rooms are fresh, new and inviting. There's a sink with a fridge and microwave so if you have to eat your left over food from room service, you can place it in the fridge and warm it in the morning. The hotel is a short five minute drive to Walt Disney World, and if you want to drive to the parks you can, if not you can leave your car at Downtown Disney and enjoy Disney's free bus transportation.
The Hotel is very clean and cozy, and it's great place to stay in Orlando.
A great place to stay
We could not fault this hotel. We stayed here 3 nights during our family vacation to Disney World. It was more like a mini resort than a hotel, although at very reasonable rates. Only a short drive to Disney World (we found driving a better option than the limited shuttle service, although you pay $7-8 to park at DW each day), and just a few minutes down International Dr the other way to abundant restaurants and shops. The swimming pool was simply awesome! Rooms very clean and comfortable, and hotel staff were very helpful. The only shortcoming was the unappealing breakfast offerings, although if you stick with cereals, juice and fruit you can't go wrong. Overall, a great place to stay! Next door to Seaworld but we didn't go there.
Visit a fine hotel!
My experience at The Hilton Garden Inn Orlando at Seaworld was an excellent one. Not only was I impressed with the opulent look of this hotel but also with the service. From food and beverage to housekeeping, every employeei met including the managers of those two departments were extremely polite and helpful. The hilton Garden Inn at Sea world is a fine hotel and i look forward to visiting again soon
