Hotel Reservations and Information

Our room block is becoming close to being full. Do not book the course until you have booked your hotel. We are working with the hotel to either expand the block or have an overflow hotel. 

We will be using the luxurious Loews Portofino Bay 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.

HOTEL GUESTS staying in our room block ENJOY EXCLUSIVE THEME PARK BENEFITS!!

 

Hotel Reservation (exclusive benefits!): LINK

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. 

You’ll have a luxurious room not that you’ll spend much time there.
Why? Because your reservation 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.) 
 
Plus enjoy complimentary access to other entertainment venues such as Red Coconut Club®, Bob Marley Tribute to Freedom, Pat O’Brien’s®, and the nonstop nightlife of Universal’s CityWalk® Entertainment Complex. Note that we’ve arranged the lecture schedule so you can take maximum advantage of these perks.

*Paid theme park admission required (and is 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 or Wet ‘n Wild. 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.
