Universal Orlando Hotels

Why you should consider staying in a Universal Orlando Resort Hotel first
1
Universal Express Unlimited
Hard Rock Hotel, Portofino Bay, and Royal Pacific include Universal Express Unlimited at no extra cost. This allows each person staying in the room unlimited use of the prioritized "Universal Express" queues at all theme park rides and shows that offer it.
2
Better Room Quality
Many Universal hotel rooms are among the best designed and appointed anywhere. Plus, they're maintained much better than the average hotel room in Orlando.
3
The Best Pools
Pools at the official Universal hotels are well themed, excellently maintained, and larger than most of the pools at offsite hotels.
4
Convenient Transportation
Commuting to Universal Orlando parks using the Universal bus and boat transportation systems is easy. Either transportation method takes about 15 minutes to reach the park entrances.
5
Early Park Admission
Universal Orlando hotels offer 1 hour of early access to select attractions in at least one of its theme parks each day, plus at least 30 minutes of early access to Volcano Bay. This means extra time in the parks that is not available to the general public, and in some cases shorter waits in line for Universal's most popular rides.
