For our honeymoon, we are going on a cruise and going to Universal Studios in Orlando after.
I need some help on planning the Universal Studios part. In a previous thread, the majority of you advised to stay off-site instead of in one of the Universal Studios hotels.
Pls help me with suggestions for good, not too expensive, hotels which are in the neighborhood of Universal? THX!

I’ve stayed at the Hilton down there, and I think it was about a “moderate/deluxe” in Disney terms of pricing. It was really nice and the breakfast each morning was great. You may want to look at buying points for a timeshare in the area too, I’ve heard some good things about them.

Look for hotels off of International Drive (North side). There are LOTS!
There is a Holiday Inn Express on I Drive that is about a half mile from Universal Studios.
If you want something fancier, check out Pointe Orlando Resort, Coco Key Hotel and Water Resort, International Palms Resort, and Westgate Palace.
Most of the hotels in the area have shuttles to and from almost all the major theme parks, though you may have to pay extra for them.

The Marriott Autograph Grand Bohemian is very posh, gorgeous and lovely, although a bit pricey by Orlando standards (well worth it in my book though). There’s also the Hard Rock which is an easy walk to Universal and has a very non-Disney atmosphere (nice rooms too).

I’m loving these suggestions and immediately checking the sites online. You girls are great!
