We booked this room because it was close to Universal (not as close as they claim however). We were able to get a 2 bedroom suite which was a great space for a family of 4. Both kids got their own bed and Mom and Dad got their own room. The shuttle service is a bit of a pain, only...

We rented a 2 bedroom/ 2 bath suite at a great price. Amazing location if you are visiting Universal Studios. We decided to skip dining at the TGIFridays based on the poor reviews. If you have a rental car there are numerous restaurants less then a 3 mile radius. THANK YOU TO Darrion who works the evening front desk shift....

We stayed here for 10 nights with 2 kids (13 & 11). Universal was going to be a big part of our holiday so the location was a large reason for picking this hotel. It's just a 20 minute walk (approx) from an entrance to Universal which crosses a couple of main roads but both have pedestrian crossing. The hotel...

The hotel has a great location for Universal. You could walk over but we took Uber. To save on parking and you get dropped of with the least amount of walking to the entrance.

You are free to check all of my posts for perspective, at best, all are honest and seek to accentuate the positives and keep fellow travelers well informed; this on the other hand was an exhausting trip with ill family member where Avis (airport) losses rental car reservation and offers "cargo van" as replacement for premium SUV.

We stayed for 3 nights and were already surprised by the quality of the service on arrival. They immediately asked if we wanted to visit the parks and sent us to the guest service department, where Matthew gave us a lot of tips and helped us with transportation. Guest services also booked the park and bus tickets, along with advising...

We stayed four nights with plans for Universal fun for 3 days. The hotel, though getting a bit old, was clean and comfortable. The 1 bedroom suite was quite large and sufficient for our family of 4 (two adults and two teens). The kitchen was well appointed and a full size frig; everything except a stove.
