Hotels at Universal Studios Orlando

Hotels at Universal Studios Orlando

If you’re planning on staying in the Universal Studios area in Orlando, you’re going to need a little information on the hotels. It’s better to be informed than it is to guess and end up wasting your money. Below we will cover the three top Universal Studios hotels, which are Loews Pacific, Hard Rock Hotel Orlando and Portofino Bay.

Loews Royal Pacific Resort is best known for its value. However, there is more to this hotel than just value. For instance, it’s a great option for both business travelers and families. For the business traveler, there is a business center and conference facilities. For families, or any leisure traveler, there is a game room, massage, fitness center, concierge, pool and sauna. Then again, business travelers also have the option of taking advantage of these amenities. One of the neatest features at this hotel is the tiki-bar restaurant with an open kitchen. A close second is the superb food and drinks by the pool.

Hard Rock is for the more active traveler. If you like to listen to rock and you want access to a fitness center, game room and sauna, this will be the best option for you. If you’re traveling with kids, be sure to try the in-house ice cream. Many of the rooms are adjoining, which is a big plus for large groups. Another neat feature is the free ferry to Universal Studios.

Portofino Bay is the most visually pleasing hotel in the entire Orlando area. It offers most of the same amenities as the two hotels above plus Harbor Night and wine tasting. Portofino Bay has more than one pool, but the Villa Pool is the best option. This is also a great hotel for corporate functions and banquets.

Summer Time Hit The Beach

If you're looking for a fun place to visit this summer, then here are a few
you might like to try. Catalina, or Santa Catalina Island, is one of the Channel
Islands of California and is located about 20 miles off the coast, near the city
of Los Angeles. With its quiet small-town atmosphere, Catalina Island is a great
place to get away from the bustle of the big city. This summer, the Catalina
Country Club is hosting unplugged and jazz nights on Thursdays and Fridays, and
is a great place to visit any day of the week. Great
Cheap Catalina Hotels

If you happen to live north of Los Angeles, then
Pismo Beach, in San Luis
Obispo county, is also a great place to kick back and enjoy the weather. Try a
relaxing stroll along Pismo Pier or the boardwalk and then remember to check out
the 26th Annual Classic at Pismo Beach car show. The show features over a
thousand classic cars, and the Hot Rod Bar and Grill will make sure you don't
leave hungry.

With nearly 15 million annual visitors,
Myrtle Beach
, South Carolina, is one of America's most popular resort
cities. Known for its miles of beaches and hundreds of golf courses, Myrtle
Beach is also the home of the SummerFest at Barefoot Landing. This festival runs
from June through September and is a lot of fun for the whole family.

The Hamptons are New York's upscale beach towns and are a great place to
recuperate from the stress of the Big Apple. Favored by celebrities, the
Hamptons are known for their charity events as much as for their pricy beach
houses. If you need
cheap Long Island hotels

Lions Club will hold its 57th
Annual Strawberry Festival
between June 17th and 19th, in the town of
