If you’re attending a program at the OCCC, you’ll likely have a choice to transfer through a motor coach or it could take you about 20 or 25 minutes to walk outdoors through the maze of covered walkways (which I really enjoyed).

But Hilton Orlando is its own convention destination as well. There’s 225,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Highlights include:

  • 3 grand ballrooms, 9 boardrooms and 21 meeting rooms
  • 50,000 sq. ft. of new outdoor event venue
  • Restaurant-style banquet serving for 10 to 3,200 people
  • 1,500 sq. ft Meeting Planner Office & Registration available for group use

The hotel has seven dining options ranging from full-service restaurants Spencer’s Steakhouse or David’s Club, a trendy gastro pub, to quick service at The Marketplace featuring Starbucks coffee.

The hotel offers a full-service spa and fitness center, two pools, a lazy river, water slide, whirlpool, cabanas, fire pits, nine-hole putting green and a variety of recreational courts.

For nearby activities and evening options, Pointe Orlando offers a collection of outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment options. And many of the restaurants offer a range of private event options.
