I needed somewhere to stay to visit Universal with my cousin of the opposite sex. I booked a two bedroom suite, and left a note asking that my cousin be let in when she arrived before me. The staff handled this extremely well. The bedrooms were really good - two bedrooms with their own bathrooms and a central living area. There were two double beds in each room - it would be ideal for a family or a group of friends. The price and location were perfect. We went to TGI Friday's for breakfast. The buffet was $11 each including drinks - very reasonable. My only disappointment was the lack of espresso coffee, but this is an American problem in general. We were able to buy our tickets to Universal in the hotel lobby and avoid the queues. We walked to Universal - it takes about 15 minutes to actually get to the main gate. There is a shuttle bus, but you need to book in advance. I would definitely return.
