Horror Nights Vacation

The hotel was nice. Had a lush tropical feel to it. Nice size rooms and a decent shower. The pillows sucked but other than that it was pretty much what you would expect from a nice hotel. The location is great for the Studios which are a convenient boat ride away that runs very often. We never waited long for the boat. Wi-fi was complimentary but slow. They had water in the room for $7.00 a bottle but did have a Keurig for coffee. So all depends on what is important to you. I was happy with my stay. I have no comments on the staff because I barely interacted with any other than checking in.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Universal opens earlier than an hour early for hotel guest. If you are going to Halloween horror nights you can stay in the park and get to the haunted houses earlier than the public and avoid the metal detectors at the main gate. This is a big plus because it get's packed. Thursday was worse than Friday for lines due to the cheaper Express Pass. They let the entire express line go before anyone buying an average ticket so if you want to get it all in I would advise either a Frequent Fear ticket or Fast Pass. (you get one for the regular park staying onsite but not for HHN.

Not as good as last time

Not very good this time, staff were appalling and really not worth club level either, don't waste your money. Was not impressed with the level of staff at all this time. I went last year and it was 100 better.

Beautiful & clean hotel, but overpriced

The hotel was gorgeous, very clean and extremely convenient for visiting the two Universal parks. The extra hour in the morning was great and it was very easy to get your photo pass or get assistance on the parks. The pool was also really nice and the kids truly enjoyed it. However, there are very few amenities at the hotel they don't charge you for. For example, coffee in the lobby is $3.50 a cup, having a fridge in your room costs $15/day, parking is $20/day, kids meals were $12 a plate, etc... The schedule of kids events was very limited and they didn't always happen as planned. One night the staff forgot to show up to set up the kids movie night. Another day the pool staff ran the pool games a couple hour later then the schedule. It was beautiful and a comfortable place to stay but it was very overpriced.

No issues great beds

Pulled up to friendly valet who watched vehicle while we checked in. Room was ready upon check in at 2pm. Self parking lot a short easy walk and I felt the $18 parking fee was very reasonable. Standard room larger than studio villa at animal kingdom lodge and beds, pillows, furnishings, bedding a definite huge step up compared to disney deluxe property. Asked and was granted a 12:30 checkout which was nice for early IOA access. We didn't eat at hotel restaurants but did lay by the pool after checkout, ate lunch poolside with good food and service and very reasonable prices. There is a fitness center stocked with all necessities needed to get ready prior to late flight. Left hotel parking lot at 3:30 pm and had car rental turned in by 3:55 pm at airport. Don't forget to keep room key as its needed to exit parking lot. Cheeptickets with a discount code provided 20% savings but did not receive "you first " loyalty program credit for stay due to 3rd party site booking. Their version of pog juice is tasty and on offer in lobby area along with iced fruit flavored water in lobby and by pool. Definitely worth extra cost to stay here if trying to get everything done with no lines for US and IOA but even if this was not an option it's still a four star hotel vs disney deluxe property which has the excellent themed public areas but three star rooms.

Business Trip

Although nice location for a business trip, room quality was pretty average. Additionally, food selection for vegetarians was fairly poor.

Perfect for a night at Universal

If you are only after early entry into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Express passes for you and your family then this hotel is an excellent choice. The staff were polite, helpful and knowledgable. The hotel itself was a very pleasant 8 min walk along a pretty canal to the park entrance. Our garden room was spacious with 2 queen beds which was fine for the 4 of us. The hotel doesn't have any special decor and our room was fairly bland looking and had a view over some bushes but we didn't book it for any of that! Car parking $18 plus tax per day. The extra benefits to staying here were so worth the money for the overnight accommodation.

Walk along the canal to the park or catch a bike rather than the boat.

Loews Royal Pacific

Location was great. Easy walk to parks, boat was also quick. Pool was great. The pool bar had really great food at very reasonable prices. There was a $10 charge to use the gym, and there was also a charge for in room frige, which I felt should've been included based on the price of the hotel. Overall I thought it was a great location and very family friendly. I will definitely go back again.

If you don't mind the walk, it will be quicker than taking the boat to citiwalk.
