View attachment 16350 The worldâ€™s first and only Despicable Me-inspired hotel suites are making their debut at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando Resort. The suites bring to life the excitement and playfulness of Gruâ€™s house, featuring missile beds and Minions, who rappel from the ceiling and surround guests with their unpredictable antics. A special time-lapse video captured the entire renovation from start to finish, along with the mayhem that ensued along the way. The project took more than 5,000 hours of work, 600 yards of carpeting, 36 missile beds, dozens and dozens of Minions and countless bunches of bananas to complete. â€œOur guests will love the theme and attention to detail that went into creating these one of a kind suites,â€ says General Manager Diane Petit of Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. â€œFrom the moment they step inside, children and adults alike will be swept up in the world of Despicable Me.â€ These two-room suites feature the kidsâ€™ room outfitted with custom-designed missile beds with Minion-inspired bedding, so that children can sleep like Gruâ€™s adorable girls: Margo, Edith and Agnes. A pale blue interior creates a soothing backdrop, while touches of Gruâ€™s laboratoryâ€™s red accents remind guests that they are indeed in an unforgettable Minion adventure. The adultsâ€™ room features a king-sized bed in the hotelâ€™s newly-renovated Italian luxury design. An added feature that parents will appreciate is a single entry door into the suite; the kidsâ€™ side of the suite does not have a door that opens into the hallway. All of the hotelâ€™s 18 kids suites have been transformed with the Despicable Me theme. Guests staying on-site can save up to 30 percent when they stay three nights or more with the â€œStay More, Save Moreâ€ promotion. On-site hotel guests receive a package of exclusive benefits, including Early Park Admission and free Universal Express Unlimited ride access, which lets them skip the regular lines on most rides and attractions in Universal Studios and Universalâ€™s Islands of Adventure.
