Loews Portofino Bay Hotel presents value as the new luxury near Universal Studios, an ideal Orlando luxury hotel for business and leisure guests.
A lot of my friends stayed here while we were in town and they all loved it! Don’t forget to swing by The Thirsty Fish for a great view of the lagoon and some adult beverages. Ciao!
Stay at one on-site hotel, enjoy complimentary access to the pools and amenities at the other two on-site hotels (just be sure to carry your room key with you).
8 different restaurants and lounges, 3 themed pools, and Italian opera singing at night... perfect.
It is about a 15 minute walk along the waterway to get from Thirsty Fish (bay-side bar & cafe at Portofino Bay) to the turnstiles at Universal Studios Florida. Or take the watertaxi every 15 minutes!
Beautiful resort! I've stayed here twice and I've had such a great time. Highly recommended by me.
This place is first class! Beautiful suites, amazing restaurants, and just a water taxi ride to the Parks.
This hotel is amazing. So fancy!
Getting the Club Level villa is completely worth the extra money. Free food the whole day is pretty deck.
Beautiful hotel and dog friendly what more can you want
Try Harbor Nights at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel for some tasty gourmet food, wine tasting and great music.Check the Loews hotels events calendar.
Hey Hector M. I understand you think the $15/night parking is steep but I'm from San Fran where people pay $60-$65/night! So on the bright side... It could be worse!
Hot chocolate samplers with marshmallows in the lobby - super rich and creamy! Try it.
Going to Universal Orlando during your visit? Take your room key to a lobby kiosk, have your photo taken (cheese!), and grab your Universal Express Pass to skip the regular lines.
Whitney at the front desk is gorgeous.
The level of VIP services here is outstanding!!!!
If you see Didi the Bellman come say hi at Luggage Services also request him to take your bags up because he is just THAT rad.
This place is awesome. Single cup coffee machines in your room, your room key is an UNLIMITED use Express pass, AWESOME!!
Had a panini at Sal's Market deli- good. All staff are very friendly.
If you miss the water taxi, the rickshaws are a nice alternative. Some of them have some great info about the parks.
this hotel is amazing! best place to stay if you're going to universal!
At this hotel, you have the esteemed privilege of paying 15 dollars a night for self parking. Or if you really want to feel honored, pay 22 dollars a night for valet parking.
The villas at this hotel are the best option.
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.
The Hillside Pool (on the east side of the property) is more quiet and secluded than the other pools--fewer screaming children!
You can wait at the fountain while dad checks you in!
They dropped our room and forced us into a smaller room without a reason.
Plan on spending lots of time @ the pool. The waterslide is legit & the waitstaff is friendly. Try the riviera cooler. Paradise!
Fancy and fun.
Get a room on the bay... Totally worth it! You get the 7:30 opera show. Bring your dog... It is pet friendly!
Don't get the coffee at the cafe near the ice cream shop... $3.45 for a small..built for dumb
Back at the hotel! I feel like I'm back in venice!
Staff is incredible. Very attentive, courteous, friendly, helpful...to name a few.
Sit on the Piazza for breakfast, performances at 8pm- make your reservation for 730pm ahead of time!
Love The hotel and The view from our room.
Staying at the hotel gives you a free fast-pass for the park!
Tried the Caesar Salad at Sal's? We seriously think it's one of the most delicious around.
Mama was it was the best
The one-cup coffee is an awesome amenity.
This place is very nice. The scenery and interior decorations are fun as well. Make sure to visit Tratorria De Porto for breakfast!
If you have 3+ in your group spring for the 'Club Access' free wifi, use of computers and lots of great food all day long. Really great food!
Check out the spacious, themed swimming pools which are the ideal places to relax with the whole family.
Beautiful setting with many outdoor eating options. Try their Harbor Nights events several times throughout the year. Take the boat over to Universal's CityWalk--very romantic.
Definitely a place to get away and enjoy with your significant other =)
Beautiful hotel and overall friendly staff but had a problem with Alexa at concierge, she was totally rude and nasty!
Beautiful hotel, nice staff, very clean rooms. Enjoy a drink at the Thirsty Fish and take the water taxi to Universal Studios or City Walk. Great place to stay!
Great place for a honeymoon
I've stayed at a lot of hotels and this one is easily in my top 3.
