The entrance—a broad, covered footbridge high above a tropical stream—sets the tone for the Pacific Rim theme of this hotel, which lies amid 53 acres of lush shrubs, soaring bamboo, orchids, and palms. The focal point is a 12,000-square-foot lagoon-style pool, which has a small beach and an interactive water-play area. All guest rooms have bright, tropical bed coverings, bamboo ceiling accents, and electronics that include iPod-station clock radios and 32-inch flat-panel TVs, plus in-room Wi-Fi. Emeril Lagasse's restaurant, Tchoup Chop, draws crowds. The hotel hosts Polynesian-style luaus every Saturday.

Besides the perfect location of this hotel close to Universal Studios and the bars, clubs and resturants of City Walk, plus the great benefit of skipping the amusement park lines with your hotel key, this was beautiful and relaxing place to stay. The lobby is something out of my memories of Hawaii and we played volleyball in the pool before sitting alone later in the hot tub. We joined the Lowes Clun for free and received a jar of whole cashews and
a bottle of decent red wine in our room. We loved it and loved the value! Looking forward to our next Lowes stay!!
