>>Emily Kaufman: If you wanna make the most
of your Universal Orlando® Resort vacation, why not stay in the heart of all the excitement? Right here, at one of Universal’s
spectacular on-site hotels. Each hotel is within walking distance of Universal’s
theme parks and the CityWalk® entertainment complex.
Plus, you can take free shuttle buses, or as a deluxe hotel guest,
these great water taxis back and forth.
This is Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. It’s modeled after the famous Mediterranean
seaside village. Complete, down to the cobblestone streets
and sidewalk cafes. Here, among luxurious surroundings,
you can enjoy three themed swimming pools, and eight restaurants and lounges.
And the whole family will get a kick out of these Despicable Me-themed kids’ suites.
You’ll feel like a rock star at the Hard Rock Hotel®
where you’ll find cool rock memorabilia and a swimming pool with underwater music.
Or, you can kick back in a tropical paradise at Loews Royal Pacific Resort
where you can imagine yourself relaxing on an island in the South Seas.
Each deluxe hotel offers fun kids’ suites so mom and dad can have a little privacy
and the kids can have their own sleeping space. On select nights,
several of the hotel restaurants offer Character Dining.
And on select mornings, Loews Royal Pacific Resort
also offers a fun Character Breakfast. The resort’s newest hotel, Universal’s
Cabana Bay Beach Resort, offers moderate and value accommodations
including family suites that sleep up to six, complete with kitchenette.
This 1950s and 60s retro-themed hotel features not one but two massive pools,
a lazy river, and even a bowling alley.
Come on… There’s great live entertainment at each
deluxe hotel From Musica della Notte at Loews Portofino
Bay Hotel to the weekly Wantilan Luau at Loews Royal
Pacific Resort to the monthly Velvet Sessions concert in
the Hard Rock Hotel® lobby. If you really want a luxury vacation experience,
head over to Loews Portofino Bay Hotel where you can pamper yourself
at the world-class Mandara Spa®. Guests of each on-site hotel
are able to take advantage of the amenities at each of the other hotels,
like the pools and restaurants and it’s all so convenient
because the hotels are so close to each other. And I haven’t even told you the best part
yet! On-site hotel guests enjoy exclusive theme
park benefits like Early Park Admission
to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ one hour before the theme parks open.
And Universal Express℠ Unlimited access to skip the regular lines at most rides and
attractions in both theme parks, free for deluxe on-site
hotel guests. Remember, you can find out more information
about all of the hotel amenities, dining options, theme park benefits, and more at UniversalOrlando.com.
This is the life.
