“Nice Hotel close to Universal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

Stayed one night, and liked the hotel very much. Great value for the price and location. A couple miles from Universal and very close to Wet and Wild. The Premium outlets are close too. The Hotel has an upscale feel and the room was clean. It ws nice to get the upgrade to the Executive level with my Priority Club Gold. Had a King bed on the 15th floor with a nice big bathrood, flat screen, and a little sitting area.

The gym was nice very adequate for a hotel gym. 2 eliptical machines that didn't work and about 6 treadmills. It had free weights, a couple bikes, and a universal machine.

The pool was a little small, but nice.

I would stay again.

Had a reward night to use at the Universal property, had a great experience with the check-in process. Recieved a complimentary upgrade and club lounge access. The room on the 15th floor was large, clean and had a hot tub in the bathroom. Parking was free if you self-parked.Would return again.

Room Tip: high floors are best

Attended a meeting at this hotel and it was all fun. The Room was great with enough day light that I love. Even though this is'nt really a meetings hotel, I think the team did a great job. With different groups inhouse, they had to organize buffets all around and they managed that efficiently.

The staff is very pleasant and helpful. The bar is one place to hangout if you are not at the Universal Studios.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floor give you a great view!!

The crown plaza, was not like any other orlando hotel. It was classy but reasonably priced and not too you know touristy. The staff were nice and helpful. The pool is opened till midnight in summer and even though isnt the largest is still a very good pool that isnt over crowded. The gym has good facilities and the rooms are lovely and modern. The beds like all crown plaza beds where comfy. Overall my favourite hotel in Orlando. Also just 5 min drive to all restaurants and Universal :)

Room Tip: Most rooms are nice and have a good view. Ours had a view of Universal and I could see the Doctor Do...

My family and I just finished a 4-night stay at this excellent hotel. Rooms were spacious and clean with comfortable beds and crisp linens. Our room was quiet and had a fridge and microwave. The staff was pleasant, and the grounds and facilities were well-maintained. The fitness center, beautiful pool, and hot tub were in excellent condition. The carpet was a bit stained in our room, but we would stay at this property again if we were visiting Universal or Sea World.

Hotel concierge made our three night stay at Crowne Plaza Universal Studios great, but the room was short of expectations. We had constant view of a light of the lobby parking area. Other hotels were better situated for dining. This hotel well situated for shopping. While searching for child's toy, found old food under the bed.

Room Tip: Don't take 2nd floor overlooking parking area.
