    Something I have never done before, booked a hotel before flights but didn't want to miss the price error. Thanks to scottishgirl87 :goodvibes for posting. $152.29/night intead of $262.33 ($236.10 Annual pass rate)
    Can cancel for full refund(1 night deposit) if a better rate appears.:thumbsup2
    Didn't know which to go for, just spent about an hour looking at Royal Pacific or Portofino Bay, neither of us liked look of Hard Rock. Portofino was only about $30/night more but we liked look of Royal Pacific more so went for that, smaller room but not bothered about that, won't be in it much.
    1st time at Universal hotel, after lines this August we said we would have a few nights onsite next year for front of line access, it will no doubt be even worse with Harry Potter land.
    Royal Pacific August 5th-8th

    We had a great deal last year through netflights, club level 5 of us £70 per night absolute bargain, but if we go back next year wouldnt hesitate in paying the normal price for it - as i said a great hotel, good food options, fab pool and front of line. Get those air canade buisness class booked now mate, heathrows not that far and if you want to drive halfway the night before we can put you up for the night no probs (as long as we are not in florida lol!!)

    Been from Heathrow twice, it is always there as a last resort but really prefer Manchester. Not bad at all going(unless you miss the flight as we once did from Heathrow) its coming home, almost fell asleep at the wheel last time. Taxi to Man is far easier.
    If time was running out I would book it but too early yet.

    I have to credit The Dibb for finding this! It wasn't me!!

    I'm a bit gutted to see everyone taking advantage of this deal and not me!! Glad to see some people getting to though :) Although I actually want to book the 7 nights at RPR or HRH but don't know if we can justify £730 on it! Is definitely a fantastic rate, but we still have to find accommodation for our other week as well!

    Hmm, tried a few more times, the first couple all dates after March were grayed out, third time all dates were available, booked 5 nights in August at the Hard Rock, $160 per night including tax!!, a fantastic price.

    We have stayed at the Hard Rock and RPR before, they are both excellent.

    Thanks to Scottishgirl87 and Wayneg for posting, a real bargain!! :yay::yay:

    Now Wayne all you need to do is sort my flights out :rotfl2:

    Brilliant link!!! Thank you, guys!!! :worship:

    Just booked 6 nights at RPR in a suite for December 2010. Had intended to go there for NYE but this offer was just too good to ignore. :goodvibes Will stay onsite at the end rather than the start of the trip... Anyway, it's all good and I can't thank you enough... :thumbsup2
