Stayed here for 4 nights at beginning Feb. Chose this hotel purely for location (proximity to Universal Studios parks) and fact that we got it for free as reward nights.
We were upgraded to a suite as hubby is a platinum member and were delighted with the accommodation. We were originally given a room on top floor but asked to be moved after 1st night as the rooftop airconditioning unit was so noisy.
The suites are a lovely size for a family of 4.
Was within a good 10 minute walk of Universal along a very pleasant footpath.
Short walk to a McDonalds and Wallgreen store (expensive but handy for cold drinks etc).
1 Kid eats free with each paying adult at the attached TGI Fridays. We had the buffet breakfast first morning but was pretty unimpressed, however, had our evening meal there one night and were really pleased as costs a third less than TGI,s in UK.
Would definitely stay here again due to ideal location.
