    Very nice place to stay. Quiet and clean. Comfortable no matter where you are. Staff was very helpful and friendly! I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Express pss to Universal is not always needed but very helpful.

    The Portofino Bay hotel was THE epitome of luxury. It was said to rival Disney's Grand Floridian hotel... but that was when they opened in 1999. I'm from Orlando, it's my hometown, and I have always wanted to stay at the Portofino. I must say...More

    It is too expensive ! I put our soiled clothes in a trash bag, I packed a few, and then put them in a luggage and wheeled it over to the Hard Rock and used their laundry room while I lounged at the pool.
