Orlando in May - define "reasonable"
The Doubletree Downtown is close by (mile and half or so) and should run about $150/night.
There are many others about Courtyard at Lake Lucerne is close by as well as Crowne Plaze and maybe about the same pricing.
If you want to get it down under $100 you will need to go further out from the center of town. Either towards the parks or east toward Altamonte. But do consider the travel back and forth in the mix.
You can also jump on the 408 and go over towards the college and nab something over that way.

Good luck.

Im staying at the Embassy Suites, about 1 mile or less away, its close to the Downtown bars also for some Friday night activities. It was reasonable priced at 150 a night. Also they do free breakfast and free drinks during happy hour. haha I sound like a salesmen for ES. I can assure you, I am not.

Hmmm. Three Florida dates.
If you want an experience, go to a Jimmy Buffett concert.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Life is short, live long!!

I'd rather be a wiseass than a dumbass.

3 Florida dates is merely 3 more chances to tailgate and enjoy life a bit more than normal.

I just got my tickets yesterday for the show! I am pumped and excited for this as it is my first Florida Buffett show. I have been to a number of outdoor venues for my concerts so the tailgating is easy. When and where is the best place to go to for pre-concert tailgating? Thanks and Fins Up!

Top of the Geico parking garage is where we will be. Other tailgating is spread out over multiple lots about town.
