I stayed here for the last three years for one week at the time. Nice hotel. This year renovations were creating some mess, but it will be worth it. Room was great. Restaurant/bar is excellent with very friendly staff.

Although the hotel was doing renovations, it was clean and the service was great. The breakfast buffet was above expectations and the staff was very attentive. We will recommend this hotel to our friends and family.

We were visiting Universal Orlando for a long weekend and did not want to drive to park every day. This hotel is located just across from the main entrance. The walk is short, about 15 mins along well groomed landscapes via sidewalks. The hotel offers a nice breakfast buffet and also sports a Starbucks in the lobby. Grab your favorite... More

I was there in Nov 2016 for a week long conference. The hotel was undergoing renovations, and thus quite a few places were hoarded up and there were works going on throughout the day. While that posed a little inconvenience to us, it signals an improvement in the decor, which was rather dated. The rooms were large. I stayed in... More

I recently stayed in the this hotel when in the area for business. Nice hotel, older but remodeled and reasonably priced. Only negative I have is they force you to use a third party parking lot that is a not obvious fee when booking and a rip off. ($17/night for self park) . That is excessive in my opinion for... More

While the property was very nice and comfortable we were charged an additional fee for parking everyday that we weren't expecting. The price was competitive until you added $18.11 for each day in parking fees. Clearly the hotel next door with free parking and complimentary breakfast is a better choice.

The hotel is undergoing some serious renovations and this causes some unexpected problems. We were not really made aware of this before arriving, and I really wish we had some warning (might have changed locations). On a positive note, the staff is fantastic! They really try to make the experience pleasant and get most everyone to look past the construction.

Knowing that we would be spending two full days in the Universal Theme Parks, we booked this hotel purely on location. We didn’t need anything too special, so this hotel served its purpose. Check in was fast and efficient and we were soon in our room. Our room was large, albeit a bit dated. However, the hotel is undergoing a... More

The staff was excellent especially the valet service. This is so close to Universal, restaurants, location good. Would definately stay here again. Hilton Hotels are the best. They were getting it very festive for the holiday season, enjoyed watching them work.
