Love this hotel! I booked a 3 night stay here because i wanted a place inside universal that is affordable. I placed my booking even before this hotel opened thru booking.com. My family of 5 travelled halfway across the globe and got to the hotel at 7pm. There was a bit of confusion with my booking but the lady at the front desk was patient enough to get things sorted. The family suite is fantastic. I loved that there is a kitchen area with a fridge, coffee/tea maker and a microwave. The beds are comfortable and the divider is a nice touch. Wifi in our room at the 4th floor of the starlight building is good and strong. We were also near everything else, the lobby, the restaurant and the bus pick up points to universal. The pool and slide are wonderful! We had a great stay, in fact my kids claimed that it's the best place we stayed at in orlando. The early park admission is a much appreciated add on, especially because my kids are such fans of wwhop! The food at the food court is way better than I expected. The burgers are great!
The only downside I can think of is, I wish there were two bathrooms for more privacy instead of the single spacious one they provided. Plus, shuttle from the airport isn't free so I booked a pick up with murray hill transportation. The van pick up was prompt and way cheaper than the universal's airport shuttle. I paid 65$ for 5 people inclusive of a 15minute stop at publix supermarket.
Oh and one major plus, telephone check out was easy and hassle free!
