Hotel Happy Hours in Orlando

How many times did you want to attend a hotel party in high school or college because you thought it would be amazing? Now that you’re an adult, it’s hotel party time any time you can have a staycation at one of our lavish hotels in The City Beautiful. To help you (and us) out, we've compiled a list of hotel happy hours in Orlando for you to explore with your date!

The Wellborn Hotel

With Lake Lucerne just a short distance away, a picturesque garden lit with hundreds of lights, and a historic setting, The Wellborn is made for a staycation. Conversely, a date night featuring drinks at The Wellborn and dinner at one of the many nearby restaurants would be great if a stay isn't in the plans. You can score happy hour specials Wednesday-Saturday from 5-7pm. The menu includes four cocktails and three small plates for only $6 each.

Happy hour at the hotel's W XYZ Lounge is offered weekdays from 4-7pm and includes specials such as $6 well liquors, $5 house wine and $4 domestic bottled beers.
