Wasnt exactly the "Ritz"

The hotel itself was nice, close to everything but not in the middle of all the hustle n bustle! Came into town for the George Strait concert & we were running a lil late but the check in staff was speedy & pleasent! Was happy with the room, the beds are quite comfy w lush pillows. Was disappointed w the website stating room had jaccuzi tub when actually thats an upgrade! But overall I would stay again!! Just save your money & eat breakfast somewhere else... ;)

A lot of variety in the vicinity. Also, the hotel restaurant is very good. The price in the area is excellent, eventhough its a touristic area.

Perfect getaway

The hotel was great. The shuttle service to Universal only came back at 7, 745, and 830. If u wanted to leave the park earlier u had to walk. We did this one night and it wasn't that bad but it is 1.8 miles.

Very Relaxing Weekend

The Crowne Plaza Orlando Universal was very nice, we were on the 12th Floor of the hotel which is a "Quiet Zone". The room was very clean and decorated with very clean and simple lines. We had breakfast in the cafe, which was very good. I definiately stay at this hotel again. We went to Universal Studios, the outlet mall and the hotel location was really convenient.

Great Stay

For a very large hotel during a peek holiday weekend- we had great service. We had room service- great sliders and fast delivery. We needed a pull-away bed- I called from Universal Studios- and when we returned to the room it was dressed and ready. The room was very clean and the housekeeping department was terrific.
