Hotel Highlight: Hilton Orlando

If you are looking for a central location to enjoy Sea World, Discovery Cove, or Universal Studios look no further than Hilton Orlando. Similar to a mullet (look it up kids), this hotel features business amenities in the front, and party facilities in the back.

Hilton Orlando is located next to the Orange County Convention Center and boasts multiple conference rooms and banquet halls bringing in plenty of business clientele. However, the pools, waterslide, lazy river, and splash pad create the perfect family entertainment and relaxation. So, whatever your needs, don’t be shy. The Hilton Orlando is sure to exceed your expectations!

How We Got There

Delta flight into MCO - Orlando Airport. From the airport, we rented a car and drove to the hotel.

The Hilton Orlando charges $24/day for parking. To save money, you could take the bus from the airport to the hotel and catch the I-ride Trolley to Seaworld, or you could park in the I-ride trolley parking lot across the street from the hotel and walk over. 

What We Loved

Lazy River

Our girls absolutely loved the lazy river at the Hilton Orlando. Grab a tube and float along this oasis while soaking up the Florida sun.

Water Slide

Located next to the lazy river this spiral water slide provides plenty of fun for guests of all ages.

Splash Pad

There is a height limit to use the water slide, however, for younger kids the splash pad is the place to be. Our girls were a bit too old for this, but they did have fun jumping from spigot to spigot and watching the water splash around them.

Multiple Pools and Hot Tubs

Hilton offers a gated quiet pool area with multiple pools, hot tubs, and a fire pit for adults only. Even though we didn’t use this feature, I loved that it was provided, because as a parent I didn’t need worry about our girls bothering less adventurous types next to them in the large zero entry pool and hot tubs for guests of all ages.

Fire Pits

Hilton Orlando provides three fire pits for guests enjoyment. These were great for families to warm up after their evening swim, but also a wonderful gathering place for business men and women after working all day in the conference rooms. Purchase some items for smores and roast them on the fire for a late night snack before bed. 

Games

This giant backyard party pad at the Hilton also has a basketball court, volleyball court, cornhole, foosball, and pool tables for those that are in the mood for some friendly competition.

7 on-site restaurants

If you’re having too much fun to leave, which you probably will, snag a meal at one of the seven on site restaurants available at the Hilton Orlando. We recommend the Tropics Pool Bar & Grill for poolside dining, the Bistro if you enjoy a breakfast buffet, and the Scratch Market for an economical pizza dinner.

While enjoying the fire pit, we also overheard business guests raving about the steak at Spencer’s.
