My boyfriend and I decided the morning of our stay to head to Orlando to attend SeaWorld and discovered the Fairfield Inn on Kayak. This hotel is located directly off of International drive less than 1/2 mile from the park. We came in late at night and grabbed drinks at the TGI Fridays just beside the hotel, nice easy walking! What made this hotel perfect for us was proximity and ease given our travels. We were able to purchase our tickets at the front desk, and had the shuttle access to and from the park. Staff was friendly to us and hotel was extremely clean and well kept. Shares a property and pool with other Marriott brand- Spring Hill, which looked equally as nice. Probably can't go wrong with either location.
My only two comments on feedback for any one staying at this hotel: the hotel offers a shuttle service to and from the park. But make sure you are EARLY. We had a shuttle at 8:30AM, walking to the stop we watched the shuttle leave at 8:27AM. We ended up walked to the park which was about .5 mile (so not to bad)... But be at the shuttle stop before the scheduled time! Second note: staying in this hotel grants you fast passes which is awesome, and the reason we chose this spot, when I inquired about the passes while purchasing the tickets at the front desk I was told they were added to my ticket. Once I got to the park that was not the case. We traveled on a weekday therefore lines were relatively short so we didn't see any reason on looking into it, but make sure if you are attending SeaWorld you double check on the fast pass access. I was told at the park it is a separate card from ticket. Don't be like me and ask! Otherwise we had a wonderful time, I now have an annual SeaWorld pass and will certainly use this hotel again!
