Critic Reviews

Fodor's

READ MORE 

In a bold move from kitsch to classy, this hotel was transformed from a pink and purple cartoon castle to a sophisticated refuge of white and silver, filled with art. The rooftop terrace offers views of Universal – and Hogwarts Castle – along with the nightly fireworks, and the 425-foot-tall Orlando Eye observation wheel and its dining-and-entertainment complex.

The interiors are splashed with purple fabrics and gilded mirrors. ... The theme, ostensibly, is medieval, although you'll find no showy manifestation of that like dragon water slides or characters in the corridors.
