Mega hotel planned for Universal Orlando Resort
BY Aoife Dowling



Work is underway on Universal's fourth on-site hotel at its Universal Studios Orlando resort in Florida, US.

Scheduled to open in 2014, Cabana Beach Resort will be the largest of Universal's four on-site hotels with 1,800 rooms.

The new resort, which will be operated by Loews Hotels & Resorts, will offer 900 family suites, each capable of sleeping six and 900 standard guest rooms.

Built on a 37-acre site within Universal Orlando Resort, the hotel is said to "evoke the driving vacations so many Americans grew up enjoying with their families - spending time at sweeping motor courts just off the highway, where families relaxed and played after a long day's drive."

Jonathan Tisch, Chair of Loews Hotels & Resorts: "The Orlando resort market and our partners at Universal are a fundamental part of our business."

"Universal Orlando is a beloved family destination and this new development will allow more families to enjoy the attractions and experience the unique theme parks."

Loews also operates the Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel and Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando.
