Great location with easy access to the Universal parks via the water taxi. This is a nice quiet escape from the full on days in the theme parks. Limited choice of places to eat in the hotel, although very good food should you choose to stay in for an evening. Of course there is plenty of variety of food and entertainment at Citywalk so not an issue. The only reason I have not given this hotel a maximum rating is the poor reservation process. It took numerous emails and calls to make a simple booking for interconnecting rooms for our family and even then they had it wrong when we arrived! This happened on both of the two occasions we have stayed here. Apart from this the hotel is highly recommended and we are returning for our third stay later this year.
