The lively, upbeat atmosphere of the Crowne Plaza Orlando-Universal in Orlando, Florida, is only one of the reasons why many area visitors choose it as a home base. The resort provides shuttles to and from the major Orlando-area theme parks, including Disney World, Aquatica, The Islands of Adventure featuring SeaWorld, and Universal Studios. Additionally, its location in the International Drive area, one of Orlando's most renowned entertainment districts, means that you're never far from the action.

Highlights

Key facts

The Crowne Plaza Orlando-Universal features a beautiful outdoor pool and deck area perfect for both adults and children. Bask in the Florida sunshine or relax in the cool night breeze with a cocktail and tapas at the poolside Aqua Tiki Bar. For dinner, be sure to stop by Elements, located on the ground floor, which serves a full menu and specialty cocktails.

Don't forget breakfast at Cafe del Sol. If you're looking to venture away from the comforts of the hotel, Pointe Orlando features restaurants, shops and entertainment less than two miles away. When you're ready to shop, check out Orlando Premium Outlets or the Mall at Millenia, both of which are within five miles of the hotel. The Crowne Plaza Orlando-Universal also features conference rooms and catering, making it the perfect place to hold your next company outing.

Love it

This was our second time staying in the Crowne Plaza universal. Love the hotel. It's spotless. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Pool is lovely. Got a late checkout at no extra charge. Always a good atmosphere in the hotel. I'd highly recommend this hotel. Personally I wouldn't stay here with children. Not that it's not family friendly but more because I think a villa would be more suitable. If there was one fault I'd have to say it's the noisy air conditioning. You wouldn't sleep with it on and it gets hot even during the night. Restaurant and poolside food is ok but a bit pricey for what you get. Typical of all hotels in the area I'm sure but there are lots of restaurants and fast food outlets withing 5-10 minutes walk. Hotel location is great with the green iride stopping right outside the entrance and the red line just a few min away giving full access to everything on international drive.

Amazing Hotel and Service

To say our trip to Orlando had not gone as planned would be an understatement. Mudslides, traffic jams, long waits for a rental car, and i was thinking to myself , Maybe i should never come back to orlando. Crown Plaza and their staff changed that thinking. When we arrived, the valet met us at the car with a smile, a bellman met us with a luggage cart and a smile, and the desk clerk made us feel right at home. it was literally the perfect ending to a horrible day. We stayed two nights, and had room service for two nights and their food is ridiculously good for hotel food. Their location is right down the road from Universal and Seaworld, and they have a free shuttle if you dont want to pay for parking. I can honestly say, this is the hotel i will stay at when in town for buisness or pleasure. Fantastic all the way around!!

Great hotel. The only complaint is that they charge you 12.00 a day to park your car. Also the restaurant was expensive beautiful pool area.

Great location

Staff was amazing. We honestly expected the rooms to be a little bigger and nicer. The rooms were just your standard hotel room you would get at a cheaper hotel. There arent even mini fridges in the rooms so you have to spend more money buying cold drinks.

Expected Better

Expected better from this high end of a hotel. Charged for parking, no complimentary breakfast, no fridge to keep our waters in. The A/C and lights were much louder than to be expected. Sorta close, but that is about the only perk- other hotels would be a better find for park-goers.
