Can anyone recommend a hotel near Universal

See they have a 4th night free for the partners hotels. Have not been to Orlando in almost 40 years. Have no idea where these hotels are in distance to park or what any are like. Would like to have one with no resort fees if possible and a nice pool. Any info would be appreciated

If you want a close hotel, try Doubletree, Hyatt Place or Holiday Inn Across from Universal Studios (there are two so make sure you get the closest one)

Parking at Doubletree is $12

We stayed at Hyatt Place Universal a few years ago and it was amazing! It is right across the street from the entrance road to Universal, about a 10-15 minute walk or a $5 cab ride. Our room was HUGE with 2 double beds and a sleeper sofa plus a really big sitting area. There was a flat screen tv and a mini-fridge and free wireless. They also had a free continental breakfast. At the time we stayed there, they had a free shuttle to the parks but you might want to check to see if they still run it.

We have also stayed at the Holiday Inn across the street. It was nice, but not as nice as Hyatt Place.

Thank you. We will have our own car. When you say that US s a 10-15 minute walk do you have to cross big highways or busy roads?

Yes, there is a big road, I believe it is called Kirkman Rd. but not sure. You cross that one and the others are small roads that lead to Universal. We walked once, but it was July and too hot. There is a stoplight with a crosswalk there, so not dangerous to cross.
