Hotel Universal Port, Osaka
Super close to USJ and JR station
The hotel had so many amenities, you dont even need to bring your toothbrush, comb, or razor. They have all tht for you. Even some herbal relaxation patches and supplies for a bubble bath. The hotel is super close (5 min) walk from the Universal City JR train station and less than 10min walk to USJ. Staff are all kind and helpful. All around a lovely stay.

Great place, kids friendly and super close to park
This is by far the best place to stay while going to Univeral Studios. The walk to and from the park takes only 5 minutes and is great when you have tired young children that are less then " in the mood" to take taxis, trains and buses to get back home. The hotel was spectacularly clean and the theme made my kids feel fully immersed in the "minons" movie while were were there (they had minons all around with a kids play area and they loved it). Also, you can buy tickets there at the hotel for the park, we stressed out buying them early at a Lawson, but it would have been much more convenient just buying it there for a few dollars more (plus they have English speaking staff). Great stay overall and would do it all over again!

this hotel is part of universal studios.
the hotel was fine with a convenience store and nice restaurant for adults only. i didn't realize when i booked it that it was right in the middle of universal studios japan. if that's what you are into it's perfect for you. we were very disappointed to be surrounded by american chain stores and restaurants and a hotel covered in cartoon characters. the mistake was completely my fault and the people there were quite nice.
