Official Hotel of SeaWorld® adds 40,000 square feet of modern event and conference space
ORLANDO, Fla. (April 19, 2018) – Spanning 28 acres within the heart of International Drive, DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld unveils today a massive meeting space expansion and renovation, elevating the property to accommodate even more business and leisure groups with new, state-of-the-art venue space and services, complemented by new outdoor lawns, complete renovations to public areas and 1,020 refreshed guestrooms. Adding to the existing footprint, the property ‘branched out’ with this multi-million dollar transformation, building an additional 40,000 square feet of conference center and event space, bringing the property’s total meeting space square footage to more than 100,000 square feet. Nestled within lush, native palms and tropical fountains, DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld offers a relaxing oasis tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city, while conveniently situated in the heart of Orlando, providing guests steps-away access to SeaWorld® Parks, as well as ideal proximity to Universal, Disney and The Orange County Convention Center.
“This hotel is one of the largest DoubleTree properties in the world, and the finalized expansion and renovation adds to the already-impressive portfolio of services, amenities and on-site venue offerings at DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld,” says Russ Flicker, co-founder and managing partner, AWH Partners. “Our ownership team is proud to be here today with hotel management, local industry partners, leaders and media to share the new conference center and event space in this beautiful setting.”
With the addition, DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld is now large enough to handle in excess of 2,000 meeting attendees in complete comfort. With expansive grounds and strategically designed common spaces, other hotel guests can still enjoy a leisurely, uninterrupted experience separately within the resort footprint. The previously existing 60,000 square feet of conference center space, comprised of dividable indoor space and the option of theater, reception, classroom or u-shape set-up, was also upgraded during the renovation and expansion. A talented service staff provides delicious on-site catering with menus inspired by DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld’s, Executive Chef Alberto Correa.
