Overview

With its enviable location tucked between SeaWorld Orlando and Universal Studios, The Westin Orlando Universal is a prime spot for those looking to stay close to the action. And this Westin property features all the brand perks that guests love, like the WestinWORKOUT center and Heavenly beds. Yet past guests expressed mixed opinions of their stays here. According to some, the accommodations here are comfortable thanks to amenities like 32-inch flat-screen TVs, spacious desks and furnished balconies. And most guests can agree that the room rates here are hard to beat. On the other hand, some visitors say they expected better customer service and that the cuisine at the on-site restaurant, Fiorella's Cucina Toscana, didn't dazzle. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, both Starwood Preferred Guest members and Marriott Rewards members can earn and use points here.

The best feature about this hotel is probably its free-form pool, set on a nice deck with a lot of comfortable wood loungers, palm trees and pleasant music.
