Location is everything for the Crowne Plaza Orlando-Universal. Situated on Universal Boulevard overlooking International Drive, this towering hotel, modelled on classic Art Deco architecture, puts the guest right at the heart of all the theme parks that Orlando has to offer. Complimentary shuttle services to a variety of attractions are all part of the immaculate service that the Crowne Plaza Orlando-Universal prides itself on.

Rooms

A smart, modern setting greets guests at the Crowne Plaza Orlando-Universal. A choice of rooms ranging from standard, which is immaculate and modern to executive deluxe, which provides extras that include complimentary toiletries, cable/satellite TV and daily housekeeping. The option to choose allergen-free suites is a thoughtful touch aimed to put customers at ease, and the luxurious Sleep Advantage package is a very enticing prospect, promising a sleep-enhancing CD, an eye mask and lavender spray, all conducive to an excellent night of sleep after visiting theme parks. Crowne Plaza Orlando-Universal guests can also relax in one of the on-site swimming pools or go for the burn in the fitness center.

Beautiful hotel, was very satisfied with my stay. The only thing I did not like was how rough the bed's comforter was, it irritated my skin. Other than that, very happy.

Visiting

It's a bit pricy and of course, a lot of tourist but, that's Orlando. The traffic is hectic and at times un-predictable. Plenty of places to eat and drink at.

Best LOcation & Friendly Staff

The location is the BEST anywhere in Orlando. You are close to everything you want to be near. Twice I ordered room service and twice the food came cold. In the bar café I ordered a spinach salad with chicken and the chicken was raw both times. Value not good with the limited food they have for breakfast. The room was clean, the pool good and the staff always friendly and helpful. Stayed here two times and this will be the only hotel I use in Orlando. Thanks Crowne Plaza for another great stay!

Ask Doug, the hotel concierge, for anything and he will deliver. He knows the perfect directions to get you anywhere you want to go and he has all kinds of great ideas and suggestions.

Awesome vacation get away

Everything really was great with the hotel honestly, the only thing I wish there was a free shuttle from the airport to the hotel. Other hotels was picking up their passangers pretty quick and we had to wait around an hour until a cab was available. But we rode back to the airport in style a little costly; but it was worth it.

Ask about the back roads to get around International drive and up to I-4 so you don't have to be stuck in traffic.

Disney Vacation

The hotel wasn't too bad, nor the location. Bad thing is that if you go to Disney is not that close by. There aren't many food choices around, go to Kissimmee to have better food selection as well closer to Disney. But food could be pricey either in downtown Orlando and Kissimmee. Renting a car is a MUST!!!
