I can tell you that the hotel is kind of old, but it is still well maintained. The hotel adopted a movie theme, with a nice design and decorations.

Universal Studio's ticket cost about $60/person for the one day admission and charge $9 for parking. If you are planning to visit Universal Studio maybe you should do some research online to find a cheaper tickets, such as http://www.discountthemeparkvacations.com (I just found this today... after my vacation) or you can get a cheaper ticket by attenting a timeshare/resort seminar in Orlando for about 90 minutes. I got two 2-days tickets to Universal Studio for $55 after attenting the Sheraton Resort seminar in the morning.Universal has many great shows and rides. My favorites are:1. "Fear Factor Live," where you can see six people compete in three Fear Factor events/stunts...Read More
