Themed hotel designed to look like the real Portofino Bay, with a free boat that takes you straight to Universal Studios. Plenty of shops and food choices although my room was so far away from reception, that became annoying after 2 days. The staff are very attentive and helpful, my room was large, well equipped and had beautiful views. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if on another business trip or vacation based around IDrive. Epcot is about a 30 minute drive away but you need to allow for the traffic. Sea World is 15 minute drive maximum. Cheaper than Hard Rock Hotel but better value and more kid friendly.
