Perhaps the best part about staying at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Studios isn’t the Mediterranean design inspired by the seaside town of Portofino, Italy. Sure, the hotel’s waterside piazza has cobblestone pavers, gondolas on the bay and serenades from second-floor balconies. And it’s hard not to appreciate the colorful townhouse-style buildings and Italian cypress palms lining the square. Even the rooms are designed to reflect a European sensibility, with cream and espresso shades on the walls, high thread count lines and richly colored bedding and draperies.

For many, the real perk about this hotel is that all guests receive Universal Express Passes to skip the regular lines at both Universal Studios Orlando and Universal Islands of Adventure. After a day of roaming the park, take the hotel’s complimentary water taxi back home and grab a sweet treat from the hotel’s authentic Gelateria.
