Incredible Benefits of Staying at the Universal Orlando Resort Premier Hotels

Universal Orlando Resort Premier Hotel: Hard Rock

Guests of the Universal Orlando Resort Premier Hotels are afforded benefits that make booking a reservation hard to pass up.

Universal Orlando Resort provides four levels of resort accommodations to choose from: Value, Prime Value, Preferred, and Premier. When comparing accommodations (and prices), guests often find the Premier Resorts (which consist of Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Loews Royal Pacific Hotel, and Hard Rock Hotel) actually provide the best value! How could the most expensive resort tier on the property actually provide the best value? Let’s dive into it!

Universal Express Pass Unlimited

The #1 reason guests that I assist with Universal packages find the Universal Orlando Resort Premier Hotels to be of the best value is the inclusion of Universal Express Pass Unlimited. Guests often find booking at a Premier resort and taking advantage of this included upgrade is actually a lower price than staying at a less expensive resort and purchasing the Express Pass Unlimited separately!

Universal Express Pass Unlimited allows guests to skip the regular lines and enter through the express pass lane unlimited times for all rides that accept Express Pass (currently, Velocicoaster and Hagrid’s Motorbike Adventure are the only two rides that do not accept Express Pass). The Universal Express Pass Unlimited allows you to avoid spending precious park time waiting in line while also affording you the ability to re-ride your favorite attractions! Universal Express Pass Unlimited is included in Universal Orlando Resort Premier hotel stays for the duration of your stay, including check-in and check-out days.

Park Transportation

17. Water Taxi

When on vacation, I enjoy not having to drive (especially if I am in an area that is relatively unknown to me). Those staying at the Universal Orlando Resort Premier Hotels can travel to and from the parks in style, as these resorts provide a water taxi service between the hotels and the parks. With an average travel time of fewer than 10 minutes, Water Taxis are my favorite way of traveling around the Universal Orlando Resort.


1. Preferred Exterior

The Universal Orlando Resort Premier Hotels feature AMAZING theming.

Loews Portofino Bay Hotel allows you to travel to a seaside village in Portofino, Italy. The amenities at the resort match what you would find in such a village, including outdoor cafes, shops, and delicious Italian cuisine.

3. Exterior Pool

Loews Royal Pacific allows guests to travel to the South Seas with a resort that is filled with amazing elements including a lagoon-style pool, food options that are on-theme, and the Wantilan Luau.

Universal Orland Resort Premier Hotels: Hard Rock

Hard Rock Hotel provides theming that lives up to its name, featuring a swimming pool that plays underwater music, rock memorabilia, and chefs that provide food options ranging from a top-tier steakhouse to classic American cuisine.

Additional Perks


If the Express Pass, Park Transportation, and Theming were not enough reasons to stay at one of the Universal Orlando Resort Premier Hotels, additional perks include Early Park Admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (up to one hour before the parks open), and Priority Seating at select Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal CityWalk restaurants (when reservations are booked via the hotel concierge)! The Water Taxi will also take you directly to Citywalk, where you can enjoy an array of restaurants, stores, and activities well into the evening.
