    Such a beautiful hotel. Near everything and you also get fast pass access to Universal studios. The rooms are good (but not as clean as other Loews hotels), but the breakfast needs improvement.

    It's a short run from the hotel to the parks and it's easy to beat the water taxis on foot if you're motivated. My son and I had a great time racing back and forth.

    Don't miss Musica Della Notte every night at sunset (weather permitting). A unique blend of classic opera, romantic and festive music, along with 'popera' favorites.
