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.

Not only the hippest place to lay your head, Hard Rock Hotel is also the closest resort to Universal's theme parks. The exterior has a California Mission theme, and the lobby's walls are decorated with concert posters and musical instruments.

Category: Premier
Location: Universal Orlando Area Area
Transportation: Boat, Bus, Walk
Good For: Easy access to both theme parks
4.3/5 from 135 reviews

If you want the ultimate European-style, spare-no-expense on-site experience, look no further than the Portofino Bay Hotel. Universal's top of the line hotel evokes the Italian seaside city of Portofino, complete with a man-made Portofino Bay past the lobby.

Category: Premier
Location: Universal Orlando Area Area
Transportation: Boat, Bus, Walk
Good For: Great theme and luxurious amenities
4.1/5 from 216 reviews

A favorite of young families and solo travelers, the Royal Pacific Resort is the least expensive and most relaxing of Universal's top hotels. We especially enjoy the South Seas-inspired theming. 370-square-foot, two-room Jurassic World kids suites are a good option for families.

Category: Premier
Location: Universal Orlando Area Area
Transportation: Boat, Bus, Walk
Good For: Good value. Boat transport to parks.
