Perks to Staying Premier at Universal Orlando Resorts

Updated: Sep 21, 2022

Does paying more to stay on property actually benefit you? Let's find out!

As frequent Universal Orlando guests, my family and I learned fairly quickly that staying on property was the only way to go when it came to enjoying everything that Universal had to offer when on vacation. Did you know that currently Universal has 8 hotels of which 3 are Premier level Resorts? They are the Loews Royal Pacific, The Hard Rock, and Loews Portofino hotels. Each of these hotels offer a different theme and vibe to cater towards a wide variety of guests but theme aside, staying at one of these premier resorts truly takes your vacation to a whole new level and here are a few reasons why.

It starts with location. As a guest of one of these beautiful hotels you are a short water taxi ride from all of the fun and immersive experiences that await you. Not a fan of boats, each of these hotels is within a 10-20 minute walk to the park. You also get early park admission which is a huge perk. When new rides have opened such as Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure or Jurassic World's Velocicoaster, guests head straight to those rides to avoid the lengthy wait times that will occur once the park is open to the general public.

Sometimes long lines can really put a damper on one's plans for the day however, by staying at one of these exquisite Premier resorts your hotel stay also includes Unlimited Express Passes!! This offering is exclusive to Premier level resorts. Premier Hotel guests can use their Unlimited Express passes to bypass the regular lines at participating rides at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. These passes are good for the entire length of the stay including check-in and check-out day and there is no limit to the number of times you can use it.

Finally, the amenities offered at each of these resorts simply cannot be beat. From the wide array of dining options, the massive pools, and the spacious rooms booking at a Premier Hotel is the only way to experience this immersive destination. Thinking about visiting a theme park? I highly recommend heading to Universal Orlando Resorts.
