We stayed in connecting rooms on the club floor. The suites were large and spacious. It is worth staying on the club floor. We just went for the fast passes but wished we had stayed at the hotel all week. The pool is great too.

Stayed three weekday nights in a club level suite ($575/ night plus taxes). Expected the four star/ club level experience to be just as good if not better than other comparable resorts with club level access. Check in/valet/ luggage service was excellent. These guys rock! Room was ready an hour before said time so after a 14 hour drive with... More

Could not find one thing to fault in this hotel. Had best sleep ever!! Beds were incredibly comfortable. Short stroll to Universal and Islands of Adventure and express passes were worth their weight in gold. Would definitely recommend staying here.

The music is great. The atmosphere is like no other. I've never stayed at a hotel that made me feel like I didn't want to leave. I could walk around all day just enjoying the music. This hotel is in walking distance from Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. They have a gorgeous butterfly garden which also serves as a... More

What a great hotel. We booked a deluxe queen room with a pull out sofa. We were lucky and got one of the newly refurbished rooms. It was beautiful, very spacious, even with the sofa bed pulled out, plenty of room to get around. The bathroom area has a sink out side the toilet/tub area and one in with the... More

We booked in here last minute due to change of plans. Service was amazing and you get express park tickets for the duration of your stay. There was a large concert in the lobby on our arrival so parking was difficult. Car parking attendant therefore parked our car for us at no extra cost. So impressed will re book for... More
