We Recommend…

We love the Universal Orlando Resort Hotels for their convenience, ambiance and amenities. Staying close to all the action means you can enjoy the thrills of Universal Orlando’s theme parks, plus have plenty of time to enjoy what the hotels themselves offer. Whether it’s a family night in the game room, an evening in the lagoon pool or a movie in bed with room service, you’ll make great memories at Universal’s Loews Royal Pacific Hotel.

For the full Universal Studios Florida experience we recommend staying at least 4 nights, with 3-Park Base tickets. This will give you time to not only enjoy your resort amenities but also allows you to experience all three Universal Studios theme parks.

A specialist can help you book available experiences, dining and any room or suite at Loews Royal Pacific for your vacation. Check out our Universal Orlando Resort vacation packages online or call an agent at 855-GET-AWAY.
