The hotel service was great. My issue is mainly with Expedia. The hotel doesn’t have a breakfast charge for children that are 3 and younger but Expedia counts even your toddlers as adults. I guess that’s part of Expedia’s plan.

The proper was right outside the JR Train Station, a five-minute walk from the entrance to Universal Studios, about a five-minute walk to the port, and right at the beginning on Universal City Walk.

Great for visiting Universal
Perfect location for visiting Universal Studios. Right outside the train station and only a couple minute walk to the front gate of Universal. The hotel is great for families with multiple children. However the beds are extremely uncomfortable, hard as a rock and the pillows are not comfortable either, recommend bringing your own. All toiletries are provided and then some, including daily water bottles which is a nice touch. Minus the hard beds it was great and would probably use again if going to Universal.
