I just went to the Portofino Bay website on Loweshotels.comThe Benefits for PBH have been updated (sadly):
Perks And Privileges Of Staying At Loews Portofino Bay Hotel
Skip The Regular Theme Park Lines
When you stay at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, you'll receive a free* Universal Express Unlimited™ pass to skip the regular lines at participating rides and attractions at Universal Studios Florida™ and Universal's Islands of Adventure™. That's a value of up to $89^ per person, per day. Valid theme park admission required.
It's saying that all hotels at Universal get the early HP + VB admission, while just the original 3 resorts (Portofino, Hard Rock, Royal Pacific) get Universal Express.
