Universal Orlando Resort  and Loews Hotel  take to the sky!

Posted on


When it opens in the summer of 2018, guests visiting the new Universal’s Aventura Hotel will arrive at a sleek and stylish space designed to create an affordable-chic experience in the heart of a vibrant and relaxing resort atmosphere.

 

Universal’s Aventura Hotel, designed with the connected and value-savvy traveler in mind, will become the destination’s sixth hotel and continue the unprecedented growth ongoing at Universal Orlando Resort. The 16-story gleaming glass tower will consist of 600 guest rooms, including 13 kids’ suites. It will bring the total number of on-site hotel rooms at Universal Orlando to 6,200 when combined with the 400-room expansion of Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort opening in 2017.

 

The hotel will feature the destination’s first-ever rooftop bar and grill, where guests will enjoy small plates and craft cocktails while taking in incredible panoramic views of Universal Orlando and the surrounding tropical landscape. Hotel guests can also dine at a modern food hall offering five unique cuisine options in a marketplace setting just off the lobby. Amenities exclusive to guests staying on-site will include Early Park Admission to Universal’s theme parks, complimentary on-site transportation, a relaxing pool with a hot tub, kids’ splash pad area and fire pit, a state-of-the-art fitness center, gift shop and car rental facilities.

 

Universal’s Aventura Hotel will offer guests yet another value priced option when choosing from the wide range of on-site hotels at Universal Orlando Resort. The new hotel will neighbor Loews Sapphire Falls Resort and will be just steps away from Universal Orlando’s theme parks, including Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure, and Universal’s Volcano Bay – a first-of-its-kind water theme park opening in early summer 2017. Universal CityWalk, the destination’s dining and entertainment complex, will be accessible via walking paths or shuttle service from Universal’sAventura Hotel.

 

Away from the energy of the hotel’s public spaces, the guest room experience embraces a serene, modern environment with refreshing, natural colors such as sea blue and rose, and floor-to-ceiling windows offering sweeping views of the destination.
