Hotel recommendation

Hey Guys! I'm visiting Orlando next April for a couple of weeks and although we are staying onsite for the duration, I've been thing about booking one night near UO/IoA so we can enjoy a couple of days at the parks and an evening exploring CW in between. Any recommendations? It's just me (age 29) and my boyfriend (age 33) who are going. Thanks!!

If I were you I would book at one of the Universal onsite hotels for one night. It will give you front of the line access to the US/IOA attractions from the morning of your check-in through the entire next day (with the exception of Harry Potter). Royal Pacific has the cheapest room. It's pricey, but its a great perk.

Oh - and you don't have to book through Universal's website. You can book through the Loews site and apply an AAA discount if you have that.
