Every child who has walked into one of these suites is completely captivated by what we created and their stamp of approval means we hit the mark.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) October 11, 2008
Some of the most popular characters at Universal Orlando Resort's theme parks have now checked in to new kids' suites at the resort's on-site Loews Hotels. Designed using elements from the stories of the beloved Dr. Seuss, and the thrilling Jurassic Park movies, the new themed two-room suites offer ample space for traveling families, and the peace of mind of one-door access from the children's room into the adult's room. By staying on-site, families also enjoy complimentary Universal Express ride access, which allows them to bypass the regular lines at Universal Studios and Universal's Islands of Adventure.
A Room with a Who
At Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando Resort, the new kids' suites feature a brilliant splash of colors, patterns, characters and whimsical designs from everyone's favorite Dr. Seuss stories. The Cat in the Hat, Horton, the Grinch, and the Sneetches seem right at home among the wacky furnishings and Seussian décor. Designers successfully created a three dimensional, larger-than-life experience that immerses kids in their favorite characters from Seuss Landing at Islands of Adventure.
Across the lagoon, at the South Pacific-themed Loews Royal Pacific Resort, the world's first Jurassic Park-themed hotel suites let kids escape into the lush island jungles of the wildly popular movies. From raptor cage light-up headboards, to custom wall murals, furniture, and artwork from the making of the movies, these dino-suites bring the thrill of the Jurassic Park ride at Islands of Adventure roaring back to life. At Hard Rock Hotel, music-inspired kids' suites make the little ones feel like rock star royalty. At all three on-site hotel kids suites feature two twin beds or bunk beds, a king bed in a separate room for mom and dad, a flat panel TV in each bedroom, and a table and chairs or desk in the children's portion of the suite.
"As a parent who travels with young children, I know the challenges of keeping everyone entertained while on the road," says Loews Portofino Bay Hotel General Manager Paul Leclerc. "Every child who has walked into one of these suites is completely captivated by what we created and their stamp of approval means we hit the mark."
Appetite for Fun
Each on-site hotel - Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel and Loews Royal Pacific Resort -features character dining on select nights. Clapping and cheering is proper etiquette for kids who get to meet Scooby Doo, Shrek & Fiona, Curious George and some of their other favorite characters from Universal Orlando Resort as they enjoy their meal.
Each hotel also features spectacular pools and fun for the whole family, with activities throughout the day, dive-in movies on select nights, and a special welcome amenity at check-in for children age 10 and under. Plus, the trio of on-site hotels offers kids' camps with organized activities in the evening, so mom and dad can enjoy a night of fun at Universal's CityWalk or a quiet dinner alone. Day camps are offered at both Loews Portofino Bay Hotel and Loews Royal Pacific Resort, if mom wants to enjoy a spa treatment while dad gets in a round of golf during the day.
