I recently had a stay at the Hilton Grand Vacation Club Hotel at SeaWorld, Orlando, Florida.

Check In

When you get to the property, you can park on the side of the road in front of the main building to go through check-in first.  Once checked-in, you can drive over to your assigned building  There is plenty of complimentary parking at this property.  Check-in starts at 4PM.  Perhaps it was because of the holiday traffic, but check in was agonizingly slow.  We waited in line, along with everyone else, for at least a half-hour.  They even had staff handing out small bags of popcorn, and at one point, a staff member even brought in a box of pizza.  The wait was long, but the check-in itself was uneventful.

All the room types are suites.  We booked a 2 king, 2 bedroom suite.  There are two entrances to the room, and it’s basically two connected rooms.

The suites are very clean and spacious, and the hotel offers free shuttle service to SeaWorld, Aquatica, Discovery Cove, Universal Orlando.  During my stay, the only downside was the long wait at check-in.  Otherwise, this is a very safe and comfortable property near SeaWorld and a good option for a family stay.
