Universal Orlando and Loews Hotels are promising high-quality at low rates for families with their two new hotels.
The new hotels are set to open in the summer of 2019. They will offer high-value with rooms starting at less than $100 per night – rates well below those of Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort and new offering Aventura Hotel.
The hotels will feature 2,800 guest rooms between them (750 rooms in one and 2,050 rooms in the other). They will include 1,450 two-bedroom suites designed to meet the needs of families of all sizes.
The hotels will be set only minutes away from Universal Orlando’s three theme parks and Universal CityWalk’s dining and entertainment. Between them the hotels will offer three pools, two food courts offering all-day service, coffee bars, poolside bars, fitness rooms, and car rental options.
Although room costs may be less, guests will still enjoy the same upmarket experience. They can gain Early Park Admission to Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure or Universal’s Volcano Bay. They will also enjoy complimentary transportation across the destination and resort-wide charging privileges.
The hotels are being created by the same creative team behind a raft of famous hotels – the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel, Loews Royal Pacific Resort, Loews Sapphire Falls Resort and Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort. The feel will be laid-back coastal, utilizing vibrant yet natural colours and exciting exterior murals.
The site covers 64 acres at the intersection of Universal Blvd. and International Drive. The hotels will be the attraction’s seventh and eighth hotels. These new hotels will raise the overall number of guest rooms at the destination to 9,000. This takes into account the 600-room Universal’s Aventura Hotel which is set to open in August 2018.
Last week Universal Orlando purchased 101 acres along Sand Lake Road to facilitate its theme park and resort expansion plans.
Reservations for the new hotels will open in early 2018.
