No matter what time of year you visit Universal Orlando, there’s always something fun happening. From sun up to sun down, there’s never a dull moment.

Why Your Family Should Book At Holiday Inn & Suites Across From Universal Studios

You Can’t Beat The Holiday Inn & Suites Location

As their name states, the Holiday Inn & Suites Across From Universal, is so close to the theme park that you can see it! It’s literally across the street. Convenience is a big bonus because you’ll save vacation time getting to and from the theme park. It’s a short walk or 7-minute drive to all of the City Walk restaurants. The hotel also offers complimentary scheduled shuttles for those looking to save their steps for the theme parks.

You’re also minutes away from I-Drive Orlando entertainment and dining options, which would be a short ride-share. If you’re looking to add a day of “magic” to your vacation, Walt Disney World is only a 20-minute drive from Holiday Inn & Suites Across From Universal. Lastly, SeaWorld and Discovery Cove are only a quick 10-minute drive.

Skip The Resort Fees & Save Money

I love surprises, but not when I’m booking my family vacation. Did you know that hidden resort fees occur regularly when you book with “on-property” theme park locations? When you book your room at Holiday Inn & Suites Across From Universal, the price you see is the price you get! There is NO resort fee.

As a Universal Partner Hotel guests can enjoy incredible amenities such as an on-site Universal Resort travel representative to help with resort reservations, a 24-hour business center, and on-site dining.

Holiday Inn & Suites Has The Comforts Of Home

The hotel is the perfect space for families of all sizes with newly refreshed rooms featuring plush bedding, spacious rooms, and a calm, refreshing atmosphere. The suites are perfect for large families– each featuring a separate living and sleeping area with amenities like a sleeper sofa bed, second 32-inch Flat Panel TV, and a kitchenette equipped with a microwave and refrigerator. We love the larger suites, as a family of five, because it gives us more space to spread out. Plus, as parents, it’s easier to find a moment of peace when we have more space.

Bring Your Four-Legged Family Friends Along

Now that family RV life is more popular than ever, famines aren’t leaving home without their pets. Don’t let that stop you from planning your Orlando vacation, because the Holiday Inn & Suites Across From Universal Studios is pet-friendly.

Beat The Heat And Escape The Theme Park Madness

My number one tip for planning a theme park vacation is to allow yourself some down time. Believe me – you can come home from an Orlando vacation and feel like you instantly need another vacation. Spend some time relaxing, and beating the Florida heat, by utilizing the Holiday Inn & Suites pool. It’s heated for the mild Florida winters and there’s a splash pad for the kids to enjoy.
