Loews Portofino Bay at Universal Orlando Resort™

Orlando, FL

Welcome to Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando™

Here at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando®, fun gets an Italian accent—and everyone gets to have an unforgettable time. Our property is nestled along the water at Universal Orlando, just like the seaside town of Portofino, Italy it’s inspired by. And with details like cobblestone streets and towering Italian cypress trees, you’ll swear you’re actually in Europe. But the magic doesn’t stop there. Guests of our Italian-themed hotel in Orlando receive exclusive theme park benefits that will make your time at Universal Orlando even sweeter, or as the Italians say, dolce.  It starts with FREE Universal Express Unlimited™* ride access^ to SKIP THE REGULAR LINES in Universal Studios Florida™ and Universal’s Islands of Adventure™ - a benefit worth up to $89 per person, per day^^ (valid theme park admission required. Not valid at Universal’s Volcano Bay™). Plus, there’s Early Park Admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ and Universal’s Volcano Bay™, one hour before the theme park opens. After hours of excitement at the parks, come back to the hotel and take the time to sip an espresso or enjoy a creamy gelato in our Harbor Piazza as you listen to live music. It’s the perfect way to end the day.

Since we’re located bayside, right on the grounds of Universal Orlando, the thrills couldn’t be any closer. Our property has 750 luxurious guestrooms, including 45 suites—plus three stunning pools, including one decked out with a giant water slide that looks like a Roman aqueduct. Complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and in the pool areas means you’re never out of touch. On the event side, our 42,000-plus square feet of function space makes us a picture-perfect wedding location or the ideal choice for your next corporate function. Take time to dine in one of our authentic Italian restaurants or allow us to bring you a cocktail poolside. Come and see why Conde Nast Traveler gave us their coveted Readers' Choice Award for Top 40 Resorts in Florida in 2012 and 2013. And why Travel + Leisure magazine honored us with its Top 50—Best Family Resorts in the U.S. and Canada accolade not once but four times.

Loews Portofino Bay Hotel—all the charm of Italy, with Florida sunshine and theme park fun guaranteed.
