The Portofino Bay Hotel

We stayed at the Universal Studios Orlando Resort this past weekend, the Portofino Bay Hotel to be more precise.  The room was nice and big, the service was excellent, the spa was a great experience, and the location was perfect.  I highly recommend this hotel, especially if you have kids, because whether you bring them or not, you will appreciate all of the added touches that make the resort romantic, yet kid-friendly at the same time.

If you order room service, get the French Toast.  The Omelette was good too, as were the breakfast potatoes.  Skip the fruit plate though, it was over priced and a lot of the fruit was not ripe.

If you have to come and go, definitely use valet, its convenient and will save you a lot of time.

I didn’t have time to ride the water taxi to City Walk, but that is definitely one of the perks to staying at the Portofino.  I can’t wait to go back.
