Stayed here for 2 nights withy wife and 2 sons (19 & 10). Fantastic frontage on arriving by car. The hotel looks fantastic. Check in was a breeze ( I made the reservations online a couple of days beforehand). The rooms are very comfortable with well stocked mini bar. We ate at the kitchen restaraunt on both nights and found the food to be delicious, be aware that the portions are HUGE.
The big added advantage of staying here is that if you are going to visit the Universal studios and island of adventure you get courtesy express passes for the rides and you get into the parks 1 hour earlier than the general public. We used both of these perks to our advantage the next day, managing to visit both parks and do all of the big rides, The Hulk (3 times), dragon challenge, Harry potter, Rip ride rockit, Spider-Man, transformers etc etc. The express pass was fantastic, the longest we queued for anything ( other than Harry Potter) was 10 mins when some of the normal queues were 70-80 mins.
A great hotel with great perks.
