Nice, but noisy!

The hotel was nice. We only stayed one night. They had great transportation services and a lot of options for food, beverage, and even a nice gift shop. It's super close to Universal & Wet & Wild. However, in the morning we could hear the people next to us getting ready like they were in our room. We could hear absolutely every word of their conversations. We could also hear everyone in the sitting area on the floor below us. The walls are apparently made of paper! It was a decent hotel, but the noise was a big downfall.

Satisfied

The room was clean and suitable for a family of 4. The air conditioner was a bit noisy, cycling on and off throughout the night. The staff was friendly.

Everything and More

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Universal while going to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. The room was very comfortable with a view of the pool. We had a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and safe in the room. The concierge was extremely helpful! There were a few negatives - the shuttle to the parks had a very limited schedule and the food and beverages were expensive. On a positive note, taxis to and from the amusement parks were inexpensive and the hotel was very close (easy walking distance) to many restaurants.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The Crowne Plaza is very close to International Drive and the many souvenier shops there. It is also right next door to a small strip shopping center which contains a liquor store that also carried other beverages and snacks. Also in the shopping center was Giordano's, home of the original Chicago style pizza (delicious and reasonably priced). This pizza is very filling so you don't need to buy a very large one. We couldn't finish a 10" pizza between the two of us.

The Orlando Summer Vacation

Only minutes away from Universal and Sea World theme parks. Also, Wet & Wild is within walking distance from the hotel. The concierge always helpful! If you have smaller kids and your considering a water park.....head to Aquatica immediately!

Great Orlando Location

The hotel served as a great base for our exploration of Universal and Disney. It's location close to Interstate 4 made it easy to get to the various locations we wanted to visit.
