It truly pays to stay where you play. Here are the top ten reasons to stay at a Universal hotel during your next Universal Orlando Resort vacation, which will make you never want to leave.
1. Immerse Yourself into a Themed New World
Just because you’ve left the parks doesn’t mean you have to go back to reality. Keep living your best vacation because our hotels are themed to perfection:
Loews Portofino Bay Hotel – relax within an Italian seaside village.
Hard Rock Hotel – live like a rock star.
Loews Royal Pacific Resort – escape to a South Seas paradise.
Loews Sapphire Falls Resort – unwind in a Caribbean island retreat.
Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort – revel in retro fun with a Florida twist.
COMING IN 2018: Universal’s Aventura Hotel – experience a new, modern lifestyle.
2. Earn that Unlimited Free Universal Express Access
Three of the five hotels on property—Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel, and Loews Royal Pacific Resort—include Universal Express Unlimited access with their stay. They’re valid at all attractions at Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure. That means you get to skip the regular lines and ride more rides during your time in park.
3. Quick and Easy Transportation
Whether you’re taking the famous water taxis, shuttle bus or walking, you’re never more than a few minutes away from all the action of Universal Orlando’s three theme parks. That extra hour of sleep in the morning will work wonders.
4. Three Words: Early Park Admission
…Or don’t sleep in and take advantage of Early Park Admission. Each day, one or more theme parks and their most popular attractions open an hour before the scheduled time for on-site hotel guests. Those parks and their attractions include:
Universal Studios Florida
Universal’s Island of Adventure
Volcano Bay rides, slides, and attractions are available during Early Park Admission.
5. All the Amenities
It’s true – we’ve got all the things you didn’t know you needed. Looking to rejuvenate at the spa? Got it. Want to work off the big dinner you had last night? We have complimentary fitness facilities. Craving some friendly competition? Step into our game room, my friend.
6. Afternoons at the Pool
After a long morning of exploring the parks, it’s about time to grab a drink and pull up an inner tube. Our refreshing hotel pools will help you rest up before heading back out for the evening’s festivities.
Pro Tip: spend a day pool-hopping and see every resort’s oasis, from the sand-entry at Portofino Bay Hotel all the way to the lazy river at Cabana Bay Beach Resort.
7. Surprises only Universal Orlando can Provide
Name another hotel where you might be greeted by a Minion… We’ll wait…
8. Free Delivery of that Merch You’ve Been Eyeing
And don’t worry about carrying large, heavy bags. Have your souvenirs delivered directly to your hotel.
9. Dance the Night Away at Universal CityWalk with a Complimentary Party Pass
10. Are You Not Entertained?!
As if all of the above wasn’t enough, staying on-site puts you right in the heart of the best entertainment Orlando has to offer.
Feast and hula at Loews Royal Pacific Resort’s Wantilan Luau, party island-style during the Caribbean Carnaval dinner show at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, watch a live show at Hard Rock Hotel’s Velvet Sessions, enjoy an evening out under the stars at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel’s Harbor Nights, or head over to CityWalk and dance to the beat of the famous Blue Man Group.
There’s no question you’re going to be staying here during your next vacation. Which resort is the object of your affection?
