Now Open: Everything You Need to Know about the New Universal’s Aventura Hotel
Minutes ago, I had the most amazing experience of my career as I opened the front doors of Universal’s Aventura Hotel to our first guests.
The hotel business is 24/7/365—once our doors open, they never close. And to be honest, it’s a moment I could have never imagined when I started working as a banquet houseman at a hotel in the UK at age 14.
From then until now, I’ve always thought of the hotel experience as a journey, and I think your clients are going to love it here. From our sleek lobby to the pool deck to the guest rooms, bars and restaurants, everything has been designed to appeal to today’s traveler. What makes the journey through Aventura Hotel so special? For me, it’s many factors, but perhaps the three that stand out the most are the views, the food and drinks, and my team.
Whether your clients are in a guest room or at Bar 17 Bistro, this hotel offers some of the most spectacular views of any hotel I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen and worked in my fair share of hotels around the world). Look one way and they’ll see Volcano Bay (be sure to tell them about our dedicated walkway that takes them straight to the water theme park) and our sister hotel, Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort. I especially love the view at night of Volcano Bay from Bar 17 Bistro.
Look another direction and they’ll see one of our sister hotels, Loews Sapphire Falls Resort. Look beyond and there’s an awesome view of Universal’s Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios Florida, and Universal CityWalk. And you don’t have to be on the roof to see these views—the floor-to-ceiling windows in many of our guest rooms showcase these views brilliantly.
The Food and Drinks
As a former executive chef, I’m a foodie at heart. So, we’ve meticulously crafted our menus and cocktails to bring guests something out of the ordinary – great food in a casual, welcoming setting that puts everyone at ease.
What are the must have’s? The bao buns and the Wagyu beef sliders at Bar 17 Bistro. A specialty cocktail at any of our three bars – barVentura in the lobby, BarSol at the pool or Bar 17 Bistro on the rooftop.
But perhaps my favorite aspect of this entire project is our food hall in the lobby, Urban Pantry. Visit one of our four stations for breakfast, lunch or dinner and see how we’ve mixed fresh and flavorful with casual that’s affordable to create something new for Orlando’s theme park food scene.
Every minute of every day, those of us who work in hospitality are focused on one thing—our guests and your clients. Each one has a story, and our job is to be a part of your clients’ story in a meaningful and memorable way. Whether they’re visiting from a few miles away or half a world away, our team is here to take care of them, letting them escape the “everyday.” Guests at Aventura Hotel will see our team’s undeniable passion as they experience this new hotel and all the endless opportunities for fun at Universal Orlando Resort.
Best of all, Aventura Hotel is a Prime Value property so your clients can get all of this at an affordable price-point. If you haven’t already booked their stay, now is the time. Rates at Aventura Hotel start at just $116 per night for a four-night stay. And for a limited time, you can secure your clients a $50 hotel dining credit when booking them a stay at Universal’s Aventura Hotel for four nights or longer.
