Sharing is caring!

The DoubleTree Resort in Orlando at SeaWorld’s  28-acre oasis is the perfect spot to recharge after exploring the theme parks or before conducting business meetings. With comfortable guest rooms, delicious dining options, and two outdoor swimming pools, it’s practically a destination itself.

The DoubleTree Resort at SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida, is welcoming whether you’re there on vacation or for business.  The spacious lobby is bright and airy and a good spot to meet up with friends.  There you can get a glass of refreshing spa water or one of DoubleTree’s famous warm chocolate chip cookies at check-in.

DoubleTree Resort Fun

At the DoubleTree Resort, there are two generous-sized pools.  There’s no need to pack your beach towel because the resort has plenty for guests to use.

At the adult pool, there are plenty of lounge chairs where you can soak up some sunshine or, if you dare, pull out your laptop and get some work finished.  If the idea of working is too much, head over to Barefoot Bar and order a cocktail or soda, and then go back to your lounge chair and shake it off.  At Barefoot, you can also order lunch and enjoy it poolside.

The other pool is child-friendly and surrounded by native palms and is an oasis away from it all.  There’s even a hot tub nearby for parents to enjoy while keeping an eye on their little ones.  On Saturdays, guests can enjoy a Dive-In Movie at the family fun pool.

Even if the weather is not cooperating, kids can still create and play at Hideaway Cove.  For a small fee, kids can participate in crafts and other special activities geared just for them.

Guest Rooms

King bed.

There are over 1,000 rooms at the DoubleTree Resort.  All of the rooms come with a 42-inch HDTV and the amenities that you need to make your stay enjoyable:  an in-room coffeemaker, digital keys, hairdryer, in-room safe, and high-speed internet.

There are pet-friendly rooms as well as PURE® Wellness rooms.

The PURE® Wellness rooms have special air-handling units and medical-grade air purifiers that remove up to 99.99% of pollutants and allergens, exceeding HEPA standards, so every guest can breathe easily and rest peacefully. All of the surfaces are treated to reduce allergens and resist molds, spores, and dust mites.

Sofa with decorative throw pillows.

A two-room suite would be ideal for those who need more room.  There you can spread out in the large living room with a sofa bed, get some work done at the work desk,  enjoy a drink at the wet bar, eat at the in-room dining table, and cover up in plush terry towels in the bathroom.

The DoubleTree Orlando at SeaWorld hasn’t forgotten those with special needs. Their accessible guest rooms feature additional clearance so guests can get around their rooms with ease. Roll-in showers or bathtubs with grab bars are available, allowing for a relaxing and worry-free visit.

Fitness Center

Just because you are away doesn’t mean that you have to forgo your exercise routine.  The resort’s modern fitness center is located on the first floor of the tower.

The DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Orlando is a great resort to combine work and pleasure.  Guests can walk to SeaWorld from the DoubleTree and transportation is available at the resort to Universal and Walt Disney World.
