Hidden Gem

mpay6 (Thousand Oaks, California) on Jul 31, 2021

We had 6 days planned in Orlando and we were booked at a Disney property. Kids were boated with Hollywood Studios instantly after 2 hours. Bought a 3 day Disney ticket and only used 1 day after they discovered Universal. After quickly viewing nearby properties, I chose the Portofino Bay. Unfortunately all days were sold out that I needed. After constantly checking the property throughout the night, I was able to book a 1 bedroom hospitality suite and a 2 queen room. Before our arrival I received a call from a staff member inquiring about an allergy that I had marked off when booking the room. I was shocked as we’ve stay at many high end hotels and no one has ever inquired. They asked what his allergy was and I had responded pet allergy. I love the attention to detail as my husband can instantly tell if a pet has been in a room and he had no complaints about this property. This hotel is worth every penny with the park and Universal walk restaurant reservation perks. I wish I would have known in advance, because it would have made a huge impact on the beginning of our trip!! 5 stars all the way.

21st Anniversary and Wife’s birthday

ChazK1234 (Knoxville, Tennessee) on Jul 31, 2021

I had to get this right! I booked a night with dinner at Bice. Started off a little iffy as we were told the check in was going to be an hour, but the staff at the front desk was so helpful and efficient. We made dinner which was so memorable. We returned to our room to find complimentary champagne which really made us feel like we were looked after. Thank you so very much. We’ve been to PB several times over the years. We will be back without a doubt.
