    Orlando Informer posted this apparent rooftop shot from Aventura. It says it was from Uni but I can't find the original. You can see more of the Volcano than I thought you would be able to.

    I think they’ve bumped the saturation way up. Usually blues tend to lose most of their detail as cameras struggle with that colour more than the other side of the colour spectrum. That’s why the blue slides look like blobs lacking detail.

    It’s one hell of a view though.

    Amazing view. Would love to see the view of the other two parks and City Walk as well. That bar should be an extremely popular spot, especially come HHN.

    I wonder how loud the bar could be. The top floors are going to be popular for views but maybe not the top floor.

    I don’t think Universal will have to worry about noise leaking through the ceiling. What they do have to worry about is noise coming in through the windows. If the windows don’t block sound we’ll, the top several floors could be getting noise from the bar.

    I will find out in September, asked for a higher room hoping for a view. :) Made that mistake year before last at SF and asked to be moved in just a few nights.

    The glass on buildings like this is quite thick. Noise shouldn't be a problem unless they have a full blown rock band up there.

    It's interesting to see that Aventura is coming up cheaper than a lot of popular hotels on I-Drive.

    Prices will go up over time.

    Cheap pricing is basically to get people staying there and drive some of those sketchy hotels/motels along I-Drive out of business. Aventura more or less will just be a place to sleep with convenient location to Volcano Bay and all the benefits of any other on-site hotel (with the exception of Express).

    Drove by this twice last week during my Uni visits. Looks like a great spot to stay.

    Keep the prices low until the WnW hotel opens and let that hotel continue to drive the other hotels on I-Drive out.

    I’m assuming that Aventura is a testing ground for the smart tech?

    Just noticed they have a "Skyline View" Room type now. It's 20 dollars more a night and are the higher floors.

    $20/night is pretty cheap for those that want the view.

    For me though, I could care less about the view if i'm staying at Aventura. If i'm staying here, it's most likely for something like a 3-night HHN stay. Choosing the cheaper option saves me $60 and can go towards alcohol at the rooftop bar :lol:
