We decided to stay here as we wanted to spend a day at Universal. The hotel was OK, the staff excellent. We ate there on the first evening in the bar/restaurant and the food was excellent. Location was very good as close to almost everything. Free self parking easy, valet parking absurdly expensive, so not used.
We stayed in an "Executive" room and it was roomy, and pleasant, but the bathroom was really very, very small and not really up to the description of "executive". We used the Lounge for complimentary breakfast which was good, but the room itself was very tired.
Reasonable value, so hard to complain too much.
One pet peeve, the hotel foyer had in it a sales person trying to sell tickets and time share type things. I find this very intrusive and not something you want to deal with when you have got off of a transatlantic flight!
