Each room features a tablet that controls everything from the TV to the room temperature. Guests can even use the tablets to order room service.
Aventura also has a modernized food court called Urban Pantry, which serves up cuisine inspired by famous food halls found in cities like San Francisco and London. There's a sushi, noodle station that serves up ramen or stir-fry style dishes.

There's also a Starbucks in the hotel lobby for those that have to get their daily coffee fix.
On the top level of the hotel, guests will find Bar 17 Bistro, Universal's first-ever rooftop bar and grill. Bar 17 offers cocktails, small plates and a few more views of the Orlando skyline.
For relaxation, Aventura features a pool with a poolside bar, fire pit and a slash zone for the kids.
