Endless Summer Resort Opens at Universal Orlando Resort
Universal Orlando Resort has opened first value category hotel, Endless Summer Resort – Surfside Inn and Suites. The property marks the resort’s seventh hotel opening and features two-bedroom suites, a casual dining café called Beach Break Café and a surfboard-shaped swimming pool.
The 750-room hotel’s suites feature a kitchenette area, picnic table, bathroom and vanity areas. Guests will be entitled to early park admission, resort-wide shuttle bus transportation and can charge purchases to their room key.
Rooms are priced from U.S. dollars 73 per night for a seven-night stay and more than half of the rooms comprise the two-bedroom suites which can sleep up to six and offer rates from U.S. dollars 111 per night for a seven-night stay.
The new hotel’s sister property, Universal’s Endless Summer Resort – Dockside Inn and Suites, is due to open in March 2020. The two new hotels will add 2,800 rooms to the destination bringing the total room count at Universal Orlando to 9,000 rooms.
Russ Dagon, senior vice president of resorts development at Universal Orlando said that their plan was to always have an offering in every price category. It is important to have a hotel at a lower price point.
For years, it was Portofino, Hard Rock, and Loews Royal Pacific, which are all four-diamond properties. All of their guests are not of the same socio-economic groups. So the idea was to have an offering that they could offer to everyone who’s attending our parks.
