The picturesque edifices of the Italian Riviera land stateside at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando. While the crystal blue Mediterranean waters are missed, the red, orange and peach hotel still makes heads turn. The Portofino Bay Hotel fearures replicas of Italy’s stone streets, actual Cypress trees, and even a Musica della Notte show. There’s enough pasta on property to fuel a theme-park marathon—and, as an official Universal hub, guests get Universal Expresss Unlimited ride access and early access to the The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Portofino's rooms swap the sun tones found outside for cool blues, seafoam greens and off-whites. We wish the Despicable Me Kids’ Suites had an adult version: Who doesn’t love being amongst Minions?
