Universal Orlando’s new Aventura Hotel will be “affordable chic”

ORLANDO — Universal’s Aventura Hotel, set to open in summer 2018, is being positioned as an “affordable-chic” resort experience for “connected and value-savvy” clients headed to Universal Orlando Resort.

The 16-storey glass tower will consist of 600 guest rooms, including 13 kids’ suites. It will bring the total number of on-site hotel rooms at Universal Orlando Resort to 6,200 when combined with the 400-room expansion of Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort opening in 2017. Aventura will be Universal Orlando’s sixth on-property resort in an ongoing hotel construction boom for the company.

Aventura will neighbor Loews Sapphire Falls Resort and will be just steps away from Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal’s Volcano Bay opening in early summer 2017.

Universal CityWalk, the destination’s dining and entertainment complex, will also be accessible via walking paths or shuttle service.

According to Universal Orlando, the hotel will feature the destination’s first-ever rooftop bar and grill, offering small plates and craft cocktails with panoramic views of Universal Orlando and the surrounding tropical landscape. Hotel guests can also dine at a modern food hall offering five cuisine options in a marketplace setting just off the lobby.

Amenities exclusive to guests staying on-site will include Early Park Admission to Universal’s theme parks, complimentary on-site transportation, a relaxing pool with a hot tub, kids’ splash pad area and fire pit, fitness centre, gift shop and car rental facilities.

Reservations will be accepted in early 2017 and information on packages and pricing will be announced at a later date.
