Disappointing Customer Experience!!!

I've an upcoming reservation with Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Universal and emailed the hotel requesting for the waiver of the hotel's handling charges for taking delivery of my Amazon purchases but was turned down flatly by the Guest Service Agent, a Ms Kathy.This was despite explaining to them that Orlando was my last destination before we head home (some 23 hours away) and it would have greatly facilitated our packing to have the items delivered here instead of our earlier accomodation. Besides, the items were primarily inexpensive items such as children's books and toys. Hence, the prohibitive charges (ranging from $5 to $21 per package, depending on the size) imposed by the hotel would have eroded any savings in purchasing these items in the US instead of back home. Very disappointed with the hotel's rigid and uncompromising stand and their unwillingness to go the extra mile for their guests.

Business Conference Meeting - Superb!!

A-1 from staff to food to rooms. We could not have wished for any better. The staff was helpful. The food delicious and the rooms were extremely comfortable. We have had many conferences but the Portofino was a different experience in that it was close to perfect.

Short Conference

Beautiful facility, high quality food and snacks during the conference, more than adequate rooms. Plenty to do outside of work hours as well. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would stay again, for both work and personal travel.

Leaking Ac, moldy floor

Well what a let down. The room was nice until the floor was soaking wet and moldy from a leaking Ac unit. Called down not sure if they resolved our problem. Smelled musty and my nieces allergies were starting to flair up. So we checked out within 5 hours. When we checked out they asked to see the picture and I sent it to their manager (hoping I would hear back from them). We never did and we are Universal Annual Pass holders. We won’t be renewing our passes next year. We are just a number. We will stick to our Disney hotels.

Wonderful hotel with great Park perks

Beautiful hotel and grounds. Large room with extremely comfortable beds. Easy trip to parks by boat or walking path. Express Pass to park attractions beats Disney's limited Fast Pass hands down! That alone is a reason to stay here, but the hotel is wonderful to stay at anyway.
