Hotel Reservations and Information

Do not book the conference until you have secured your room first! 

We will be using the luxurious Loews Portofino Bay Hotel for our Conference Hotel on the Universal Studios property! Hotel guests enjoy spacious guest rooms featuring custom designed furnishings, impeccable and attentive service, swimming pools, and exceptional dining.

Halloween nights are EXTREMELY popular! Last year all hotels in our room block SOLD OUT early! 

We will have our main hotel, Loews Portofino as our Conference Hotel, where the meeting will be. At the Portofino, you’ll have a luxurious room, not that you’ll spend much time there.
Why? Because your reservation at the Portofino in the A-Cross room block includes FREE Universal Express Unlimited ride access* at the Universal Orlando® theme parks that lets you skip the regular lines AND Early Park Admission
 to the parks one hour before they open. (These are high-value premium perks available after your own regular paid admission to the parks.) 

We will also have an  overflow hotel at Cabana Bay that is available by Bus, personal auto, boat, and walking in the Universal Complex. Note that only the Portofino Hotel has the FREE Express Passes included (with your daily ticket purchase)! The Cabana Bay does not have the Express Passes included with staying there. It does however, also have early park admission daily!

Rates for the Portofino are $539/night double occupancy (and include Express passes for all in the room).

Rates for Cabana Bay are $199/night double occupancy (and does not include Express passes).

For rooms pre/post or outside the conference dates, call 1-866-360-7395, please be sure to mention you are with A-Cross Medicine Reviews to receive the discounted room rates. 

Early Park Admission^ to the parks one hour before they open. (These are high-value premium perks available after your own regular paid admission to the parks.) This is available at each of our hotels!
Halloween Night Tickets are a separate purchase!

Only valid for the number of guests staying in the room for the length of hotel stay as indicated on the Universal Express℠ Unlimited pass. Available during normal theme park operating hours only. Not valid for separately ticketed special events. Additional restrictions may apply and benefits are subject to change without notice. Early Park Admission begins one (1) hour prior to regular scheduled park opening to one (1) Universal Orlando theme park as determined by Universal Orlando. Valid at select attractions at each park. 

Other discounts and amenities for those in our room block: 
  • Complimentary access to entertainment venues, such as Red Coconut Club®, Bob Marley – A tribute to Freedom, Pat O’Brien’s®, CityWalk’s Rising Star and the groove at Universal’s CityWalk, will be given to each attendee for each night of the group dates. Hotel room keys work as a CityWalk Party Pass to access these venues!

A deposit equal to one (1) night’s stay is required and will be charged for each individual’s reservation that is made on their own. The deposit is refundable if notice is received at least five (5) days prior to arrival, and a cancellation number is obtained.  

Guests must identify themselves as A-Cross Medicine Reviews guests to receive the contracted room rate.
