When visiting Universal we wouldn't stay anywhere else. The hotel is top notch, very clean and well maintained with a beautiful pool and lovely landscaping. Love the rock & roll memorabilia...

Excellent hotel with first class service! Located within walking distance to Universal Studios, it is beautifully landscaped, very clean and comfortable. Something for everyone! Make sure you have a very clear understanding of all of the Universal Studios amenities that you purchase as concierge might not explain them correctly!

As a seasoned veteran of Orlando, this year we abandoned Disney hotels and chose this one. Our daughter is fourteen and a huge Harry Potter. The hotel is great, staff polite and helpful and rooms a good size, and facilities excellent. But the big selling point is early entry into the park so you can do all the Harry Potter...
