Fantastic Holiday Resorts here In Central Florida!

universal-studios-leaflet-orlandoStay close to the action! Universal Studios is an incredible adventure. So, why not stay here for your vacation or holiday.

Jump into your favorite movie with the hilarious Shrek 4D Show, ride the incredible Spiderman ride at the fun-filled Universal Island of Adventure and now join Harry and his friends at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, opened (2010)

Dance the night away at City Walk. At the end of the day, won't it be great to know you're only steps from your hotel?

Universal hotels features three official on-site resorts: Loews Royal Pacific Hotel, the Hard Rock Hotel, and Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. All three hotels are located in close proximity to the Universal Orlando theme parks.

Where To Stay:

  • Bypass those long lines (queues). Take the Universal Express by showing your key card at the ride entrance.

  • Get around for free. Complimentary transport is provided by water taxi and bus between the theme parks and CityWalk.

  • Lighten your load. Complimentary package delivery lets you send items purchased within the park straight to your hotel room.

  • Have a seat. You'll be given priority seating at select Universal Orlando restaurants.

  • Charge! Resort ID cards allow you to charge your purchases at most merchandise, dining and entertainment outlets throughout Universal Orlando.

Here's a brief description of the three Universal hotels situated in Universal Orlando. You'll also find our recommended website for more specific information to help you make an informed choice.

Loews Portofino Hotel:

Just a short walk from Universal's attractions, the resort hotel features quaint cobblestone streets and relaxed sidewalk cafes.

You'll swear you're in a real Italian seaside resort village.

There are 750 rooms, 45 suites and many amenities for the whole family to enjoy. Take a break from the heat and hit the pools. The Beach pool, Villa Pool and Hillside pool provide hours of fun in the sun for the kids and yourselves.

Loews Royal Pacific Resort:

universal-royal-pacific-resort-orlando-floridaYou may think you're in the paradise of the South Pacific rather than in the middle of a Universal Orlando resort when you stay here.

There are 1000 rooms. Each has a king-size bed or two queens. (Heh, just think big beds.)

All rooms are air-conditioned with standard TV and telephone, minibar, bath, shower, iron boards and in-room safe.

You'll have a choice of two restaurants and three bars (yummy), a fantastic swimming pool area, fitness studio and car park (local charges - check first). Another great thing about this place is the supervised children's program. You parents can chill out and top up that tan while the kids have their own fun.

Hard Rock Hotel:

universal-hard-rock-hotel-orlando-floridaSet within the Universal Orlando resort and just a few minutes walk from the main gate at Universal studios, this place embodies the spirit of 'Rock and Roll'.

It's perfect if you want to stay close to the theme parks, bars, restaurants and busy nightlife of CityWalk.

All 650 rooms have air-conditioning and queen-size beds as well as TVs, bath, showers, fridges, garden views, telephones and room safes.

You'll also find a cool swimming pool with underwater sound system, four styles of restaurants and bars, gift shops and supervised children's programs.

The Voice of Experience

Our family has been to all three Universal hotels, not to stay but just for the experience. From what we have seen we highly recommend all of them.

But we're not the experts! To give you the best information, we've researched a few sites. We find the following website very professional and informative regarding all of Universal hotels.

Do you have your heart set on a Walt Disney hotel or Universal hotel? If not, there are other options. Please take a look at other types of accommodation below in the Sunshine state:
