Because Hilton Garden Inn Orlando is an official hotel partner of SeaWorld, guests receive complimentary transportation to SeaWorld Orlando, Aquatica (a giant, ridunculously cool-looking water park), Discovery Cove (where you can swim with dolphins), and Universal Orlando (as well as Epcot).

Those staying at the hotel can also pick up a ticket at the concierge desk the day of your SeaWorld visit to receive complimentary Quick Queue, SeaWorld’s front-of-the-line access.

Hilton Garden Inn guests even get 10 percent off dining for Sharks Underwater Grill and the All-Day Dining Deal at SeaWorld and Banana Beach Cook Out at Aquatica. A 10 percent discount is also available on retail purchases of $50 or more at the Gift Shops at the Waterfront at SeaWorld and Aquatica’s Kiwi Traders and Adaptations.

Additionally, hotel guests can enter SeaWorld and Aquatica parks early on select days throughout the peak travel season.

This summer, on Saturday mornings a caricature artist is on hand in the lobby drawing pictures of children for interested guests. On Sunday mornings, a balloon artist makes the rounds through the on-site cafe twisting balloons into all manner of shapes for kids.

The large outdoor pool and whirlpool spa at Hilton Garden Inn Orlando was a lovely spot to unwind after a long day exploring the parks.

I have told you before why I like Hilton Garden Inn for families: affordable prices, great locations, welcoming lobbies, hot breakfasts on-site in the mornings, free WiFi, 24-hour pantry for snackies, and friendly lounges for drinks in the evening. (I also appreciated the in-room fridge and microwave at the Orlando location!)

The real reason I love this brand? The people. Every time I stay at a Hilton Garden Inn, the front desk and other staff go above and beyond to make sure my travel mates and I are comfortable and content.
