Hotel in Orlando

Can anyone recommend a hotel in or around Orlando? We're going to Universal Studios for part of our honeymoon and need a hotel. We're considering the Polynesian resort inside Universal. Thank you.

    I have stayed at The Dolphin and it was pretty nice. There is a boat to take you to the parks.

    Doesn't Universal have its own set of hotels? Portofino Bay and a couple of others? Would those work? Also, just to let you know, the Polynesian is a Disney Resort. :) If I think of any that are closer to Universal than Disney, I will post! Good luck!

    If you are strictly going for Universal you could stay at one of their hotels. Hard Rock, Portofino or Royal Pacific. 

    My mom usually stays at the Polynesian, it is on the monorail line for Disney

    Some other hotels in the area near universal (but would need to drive to universal) that are nice are:
    The Peabody (just remodeled and added new wing)
    Rosen Shingle Creek 
    Ritz & JW Marriott (farther from universal)
    Hilton & Waldorf (newer hotels in area)

    Ones that I have stayed at and love:
    Portofino (great beds!), Hard Rock (its a fun hotel! and great pool) and the Ritz (which is a little farther than the other hotels from universal but its quiet and relaxing)

    I was just there and we stayed at a brand new Westin Hotel.. It was right on universal blvd. Literally 10 mins away. But if possible I would try to stay on Universal Property aka Hard Rock Hotel, Portofino ( which is a A+++ Hotel and Italian Themed), or the Royal Pacific which is a Hawiian themed hotel. The universal hotels have a lot of great offers which you do not get if u stay off the property.. Good Luck
