My husband and I stayed here using Priority Club points for two nights when we went to Universal. We arrived at 9 am the day we were to check in and I went in asking if we could possibly park the car in the lot while we went to the park. They allowed me to go ahead and check in AND upgraded us to a nicer suite. They offered a free shuttle to and from the parks but you must sign up in advance and they run only certain times. As we missed the times the first day and wanted to get to the park, we walked. It took us about 15 minutes to get to the Universal City Walk, and another 5 to get to the main gate of each park. The second day we took the shuttle and it was very convienient as well. We couldn't have picked a better hotel for going to the parks. Another perk was the outlet malls. They are across the interstate from the hotel and only took us about 5 minutes to get to. It was a very large outlet mall with many different stores. We also ordered room service from TGI Fridays (attached to the hotel) and it came promptly. The hotel was clean and the service was great.
