Didn't get to see too much of the hotel as only stayed one night but liked what we did see. Great one night stay mainly to get the express passes for Universal which was great. Checked in early, got express passes, left bags, off to the parks and then they text you when your room is ready. We had a...

We have just spent 9 nights at the Hotel, great location and queue jumper made the universal studios experience one to remember! Good entertainment at the pool during the day and the kids loved watching the movies in the pool in the evening. The kitchen restaurant and bar is inexpensive, with happy hour offered 15:00 - 17:00 daily. The Palm...

My 12 year old son has severe food allergies to dairy, egg, tree nut and peanut. For that reason, I always book on the Concierge level so that we can have a relationship with the chef and they can prepare him safe food for breakfast and evening snack. I pay quite a bit of extra money for this service. We...

We weren't sure what to expect from this hotel. We booked it because of the proximity to the parks - which are within an easy 5 minute walk - and it totally exceeded our expectations. I was worried it might be a bit gimmicky and be popular because of its reputation but it is truly a great place to stay....
