    My husband and I are planning to stay at one of the official SeaWorld hotels to get the early admission and shuttle service, etc. The prices on many of them are quite similar, so we're looking for advice.

    In particular, the Fairfield Inn and Springhill Suites are attractive because they are the only two that have free breakfast. The rooms at the Springhill look like they are larger but the layout looks weird, with the bathroom doors right in front of the bed, and in the photos it looks like the bathroom doors are transparent, which seems odd. Plus, the TV is not right in front of the bed, which is inconvenient. On the other hand, the Fairfield Inn rooms are only 270 square feet, which sounds snug.

    The other one we are strongly considering is Hilton Grand Vacations at SeaWorld. No breakfast, but parking and wireless internet are free and the rooms look pretty big.

    So, does anyone have feedback about the official hotels? THANKS :cheer2:

    Unfortunately, it looked like the Residence Inn only offers queen bed rooms, and my husband and I are too accustomed to our king bed to adjust to that, but thank you for pointing out that I made an error regarding free breakfast offerings :blush: I don't want to mislead other vacationers!

    The HGV does offer nice grounds and pools! Plus, the king studios are 400 square feet, which is even bigger than the Royal Pacific room where we'll be for the Universal portion of the trip, so that's a plus. Of course, after Discovery Cove and Aquatica, I'm afraid we might be too "pooled out" to want to use it too much, but the beauty of the property is attractive.

    I stayed at HGV in April and highly recommend it. My room was in great condition, the staff was so friendly and helpful that I thought I was at Disney, and the grounds were beautiful. Seriously, I have NO complaints about that stay (at least none related to the hotel). Really great place! And while there's no free breakfast, there's a little shop off the back of the main building that has reasonably priced pastries.
