ORLANDO, Fla. — Universal Orlando’s newest hotel is set to officially open on Aug. 16.

  • Universal’s Aventura Hotel opens Aug. 16
  • Features 600 rooms with modern design

Aventura Hotel is the sixth hotel to open on the property, bumping Universal’s room count to 6,200.

During a special event Tuesday, Universal shared a sneak peek inside its newest addition.

The 600-room hotel features a sleek, contemporary design. Each room includes floor-to-ceiling windows that provide views of Orlando and Universal’s theme parks.

Aventura is listed as a “prime value” hotel, with rates starting at $116 per night for standard rooms and $216 per night for the kids’ suites.

The hotel is also one of Universal’s most tech-savvy.

Each room features a tablet that controls everything from the TV to the room temperature. Guests can even use the tablets to order room service.
