    Not a huge fan of the look, but I guess it's hard to theme a tower hotel.

    Hopefully it has some good amenities

    Talk about starting the week off with a bang.

    The hotel looks rather sleek and modern in design, definitely gives off a more...fancy appeal.

    The highlight though will be the rooms facing the parks. I wonder how much they'd sell those rooms in particular but I guess we'll find out in the future.

    Worried about sight lines from IOA.. It seems though as if UC has given up on sight lines.

    I was thinking more of "adventure" style theming rather than this for a hotel named Adventura...

    Interesting that there is no accompanying announcement article.

    That's what I figure, I just keep hoping Universal will take the reins of their own resort hotel operations.

    Does it look like it may have a roof top restaurant or lounge of some sorts? That would be pretty cool

    That will have some great views. I count about 20 stories with maybe something major on top? Restaurant I would assume.

    There are some additional renderings of it from OI as they report that it's a "Prime Value" hotel..

    "Some of the features will include an open, loft-inspired lobby, where the sunshine will stream in through 18-foot windows. Those same windows will also provide a view outside to the pool level. A rooftop bar will also be coming, with panoramic views of the neighboring Volcano Bay (which opens next year)."

    Talk about getting your bang for the buck then. I am surprised that this is going to be a value hotel, when it looks like it can be a more..lux hotel.

    16 stories makes it taller than most of the area hotels. Contemporary is only 15 stories.

    That means you'll be able to see Disney from the upper floors.

    I have faith it will look fine when done. It's so far to the south of the parks I doubt you'll see much of it from IoA. It and the volcano next to it will really make Universal visible from I4

    How tall are the new Beachside and Bayside towers at Cabana Bay? 12 stories?

    I think 12 stories.

    So they'll be ~130', Aventura will be ~170' and the Volcano will be ~199'. Nice!

    That's actually insane when you think you'll be on the 16th floor looking up at the volcano.
