Universal Orlando Resort, which last November announced the
construction of two budget-priced hotels, will name them the Surfside Inn and
Suites and the Dockside Inn and Suites. Together, the two hotels will comprise
Universal's Endless Summer Resort.
Loews Hotels & Resorts will manage the properties. Universal
said both hotels' daily rates will be as low as $73.
The Surfside Inn and Suites is slated to open in 2019 with
1,450 rooms. More than half of those rooms will be two-bedroom suites that can
accommodate as many as six people and will have kitchenettes and dining areas. Rates
for the two-bedroom suites will start at $111 a night.
The Dockside Inn and Suites is scheduled to open in 2020.
Both hotels will offer what Universal calls a "relaxed and easy vibe, and
fun surf and beachy details."
More than half of the 1,450 guestrooms at the Surfside Inn will be two-bedroom suites.
Endless Summer Resort guests will be able to enter the theme
parks in the mornings before they open to the general public. The will also get
free shuttle service throughout Universal Orlando.
Loews operates five hotels at Universal Orlando: Loews
Portofino Bay, the Hard Rock, Loews Royal Pacific, Loews Sapphire Falls and
Cabana Bay Beach. Loews is slated to open the Aventura Hotel in August.
