My husband, daughter and I decided to go to Florida for a few days for a family trip. Our main destination was to go to Universal Studios. This hotel was perfect! It was across the street from the park. They have a free shuttle that goes to and from the park which helps to avoid the $20 parking fee. There...

We stayed 4 nights here in a poolside room number 4119. The hotel is fresh, modern and clean. Staff are so attentive at all times. The pool area is a real plus point and the sun beds are simply the best. Padded cushions and plenty of shade. Pool is very safe with shallow walk in side, great for elderly or...

First of all, the outside may not look like much, but the lobby and the rooms are amazing. The rooms are decorated in purple nicely. Little accents here and there.

This hotel seemed a lot nicer in the pictures. We were given a room facing the parking lot and a major highway. We didn't pay attention to the reviews that warned about the noise, but we should have. The noise from the road was LOUD, and also the noise from people walking past your room was disturbing. To ensure privacy...

This would 100 percent be my choice if I stayed near universal again. The price was much cheaper than other hotels in the area, and the rooms were clean and renovated. The lobby is gorgeous and they have the most delicious food in the Indian Restaurant inside the hotel. Hands down a great choice. Don't pay for the expensive hotels...

This was suppose to be the closest hotel to Universal. Well I would hate to walk that distance to the beginning of City Walk. There are only two shuttles going out and two coming back to the parks. The rooms bed frames stick out and are a constant source of pain. NO ELEVATORS.
