Themed around the Mediterranean village of the same name, the Portofino Bay Hotel is a charming and romantic destination – even if you never step foot in a theme park. From the Mandara Spa to the pillow top beds, no detail here escapes a sense of quality and elegance.
As the flagship hotel of the Universal Orlando resort, the Portofino Bay Hotel is arguably the best hotel in Orlando. The sun-filled lobby is adorned with marble and has a spacious, comfortable seating area. Step into the hallway and suddenly it’s nighttime with strings of overhead lights illuminating the colorful walkway.
Dining options at Portofino Bay Hotel range from upscale dining at Bice Ristorante to classic Italian fare at Mamma Della’s Ristorante.
Portofino Bay Hotel has the same benefits as the other deluxe Universal hotels including Universal Express Passes, early entry to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, boat transportation to the theme parks and CityWalk, and valet service.
