My Hotwire Win!!!

I just took a 3.5* hotel on Hotwire for $52/night and got the Doubletree by Hilton at SeaWorld!! A SeaWorld partner hotel!! Wow!! I'm surprised!!

I needed to save $ somewhere, and this looked like a great way to do it. It looks like there will be a parking fee (many charge this no matter how you book), but I'm thrilled to get to ride the free shuttle to SW!!

When I put in SeaWorld Orlando, it was coming up as the closest one. Closer than I even thought!!

That's a great deal. We looked at staying there last week and the best rate I found was $74 can't remember if it was for passholder or AAA.
It offers a behind the scenes tour of Sea World on certain days for guests of the hotel, early admission certain days, and free quick que.
Enjoy your trip!

Make sure you budget the resort fee in to your costs. We had a great military rate option there but once I factored in the resort fee we decided to go somewhere else. It is still a good rate but maybe not as good as you were hoping.

Yes, I was noticing that many of the hotels have some ridiculous fee. Parking there is $15, but that's for everybody. I was aware that some stupid charge would likely be associated with it when I took it. The good part is that I won't need to pay to park at SW.
