Here’s your first look at Universal’s Endless Summer Resort – Dockside Inn and Suites

ORLANDO — With its grand opening just three weeks away, Universal Orlando Resort has revealed a first look at its newest and eight hotel, Universal’s Endless Summer Resort – Dockside Inn and Suites.


The lobby at Dockside Inn and Suites

Set to open on March 17, Dockside marks the eighth hotel launched in partnership with Loews Hotels & Co., and the second hotel in Universal Orlando’s Value category. Upon completion, it will add 2,050 guestrooms to the destination by the end of 2020.

It features both standard rooms and spacious 2-Bedroom Suites that sleep up to six, with rates starting at US$79 per night based on a five-night stay during value season. With each stay, guests receive exclusive theme park benefits, including Early Park Admission, complimentary transportation to/from the theme parks and more.

The first-look photos highlight the resort’s guest areas, including its casual dining food court, Pier 7 Market, as well as the hotel lobby, resort-style pool and 2-Bedroom Suites. The décor is meant to evoke the feeling of being surrounded by the sea from the shore and catching the sunset from beneath a pier.


The onsite Pier 8 Market

Dockside Inn and Suite’s sister property, the 750-room Surfside Inn and Suites, celebrated its grand opening last June as the destination’s first Value Category hotel. Together, both Dockside and Surfside will add 2,800 rooms to the destination, bringing the total room count at Universal Orlando Resort to 9,000 rooms by the end of the year.
