Universal gives details about its next hotel in documents

Sandra Pedicini

Universal Orlando is moving ahead on plans for a new 600-room hotel.

The company filed several documents with the county Friday that gave some details on the hotel, which appears to be named Aventura. It will be on 6 acres southwest of Universal’s new Sapphire Falls hotel.

Its parking garage would be connected to Sapphire Falls’ garage via a walkway. Sapphire Falls, which opened last month, also will have a walkway connecting it to Universal’s Royal Pacific Resort.

The new hotel would have limited meeting space and would not include complimentary unlimited Express Pass access that other upscale Universal properties such as Hard Rock and Portofino Bay have. Guests will get early admission to the theme parks.

A Universal spokesman could not be reached for comment.

Universal now has five hotels with 5,200 rooms. Its owner Comcast Corp. has said it wants to double or triple its number of hotel rooms. Its other on-site hotels include Cabana Bay, which opened in 2014. Universal is also expected to build lodging on other parcels it owns in the International Drive area including 475 acres it purchased last year near the Orange County Convention Center.
