No matter your travel style and budget, NerdWallet has you covered with their latest roundup of various hotels near Universal Orlando that provide all-inclusive Universal Studios vacation packages, redeem hotel points or offer budget-friendly options that don’t compromise theme park amenities. NerdWallet’s list of Hotels to Stay at Universal Studios Trip Packages covers every type of traveler: on-site Universal hotels, nearby value or moderate hotels as well as off-site options offering special ticket discounts at Universal Resort park tickets.
On-site Universal Studios hotel packages are an excellent way for families and anyone else who’d like to be closer to the parks to save up to 12% on both lodging and tickets when purchased together instead of individually.
Universal Studios hotels provide something to accommodate every type of traveler. Their Value Resorts provide clean and simple accommodations at a budget-friendly rate that suit many families’ needs.
Premium Resorts provide guests with unique benefits they won’t find elsewhere, like staying at the Hard Rock Hotel where guests receive a Universal Express Unlimited Ride pass allowing them to bypass regular lines at most attractions at Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure for the duration of their stay.
Music fans should make time to visit the Hard Rock Hotel, an iconic Premier Hotel that takes its inspiration from rock ‘n’ roll culture with plenty of memorabilia on display and Old Hollywood architecture inside. Plus, its proximity to Universal Studios means being first in line in the morning or popping back over after an exciting day at Universal is ideal!
If the rock ‘n’ roll theme of Hard Rock Hotel is too loud for your tastes, try Cabana Bay Beach Resort as an on-site Universal Studios hotel that is more family-oriented: an elevated 1950s-60s motel known for its remarkable value among theme park adjacent hotels – perfect for families or anyone interested in mid-century modern design. Cabana Bay may be further from the parks than some others on site, but offers free water taxi, shuttle bus and walking path transportation to reach them.
Those familiar with Hyatt may want to redeem their World of Hyatt points at one of two outposts near Universal Studios Florida: Hyatt Place or House offer category 2 redemption rates starting from 6,500 World of Hyatt points; suite redemption starts at 9,000 points. Both provide complimentary breakfast as well as shuttle transportation directly to the parks.
