Universal Orlando announces 16-story Aventura Hotel

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

From the blog post:

In the summer of 2018, you’ll be able to step inside Universal’s Aventura Hotel – the next incredible addition to the Universal Orlando hotel collection. It will offer yet another value priced option when choosing from the wide range of hotels at our destination and will bring affordable-chic to life on-site.

You’ll arrive to a 16-story tower that soars through the Florida sky, with sunshine and clouds reflecting in its all-glass design.

Sounds great. But still not as nice as the new hotel at Six Flags Great Adventure.

Where the hell are they putting this thing? I can't even figure out how they were squeezing in the water park, even though I can obviously see it.

I think the proximity to I4 is playing tricks with our eyes. I read somewhere that V-bay is bigger in acreage than WetnWind. I find it hard to believe...but oh well.

The new hotel I'm told is going between Sapphire Falls and Cabana Bay. I've not been to either hotel, so I've not seen them up close.

Related: What's the deal with Rick Munarriz at The Motley Fool? He seems to engage in a lot of anti-Diseny hyperbole lately. Take this one:

Comcast doesn't need a lot of help with drawing guests. It's been trouncing its larger peer since the 2010 opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure.

He does say that Universal has "a long way to go," but trouncing is a pretty weird word to use when either Universal park still does half of what Magic Kingdom does. Sure, they've had explosive growth, but let's be honest, the bar was pretty low as they went years and year not building anything prior to Harry Potter.

Right? And are we sure that iniversal's growth is really coming at Disney's expense or just more people otherwise not interested in either combined with people visiting both?

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Yeah, he has been harping on Disney's relatively minor attendance decline, which as far as I can tell is by design anyway. Magic Kingdom is still pretty crowded. It's not miserable, but it sure could be better with less people.
