Take a lively armchair visit to some of the exceptional resort hotels throughout the United States. Along the way, host Samantha Brown experiences first-hand what makes these hotel destinations popular, appealing, unique, and memorable. Each episode presents an entertaining "story" of up to two different hotel destinations, complete with encounters and eccentricities that creatively show and tell what makes each hotel a great experience. Episode 1: Have you ever dreamed of traveling to the Italian Riviera? What about spending an evening or two in the quaint coastal village of Portofino, Italy? Well, it may be easier than you think! And you don't even need a passport! Samantha Brown uncovers a Great Hotel in Orlando, Florida that is patterned after this famous Italian seaport, with every detail of Portofino - right down to the fishing boats docked in the harbor. And if that wasn't enough, the Portofino Bay Hotel is located in one of the coolest theme parks in the country, Universal Orlando! Join Samantha as she explores the hotel's $2,000-a-night Presidential Suite, takes a trip to Universal's Islands of Adventure to ride the thrilling Incredible Hulk Coaster, enjoys an Italian feast at the Portofino's Mama Della's Restaurant (complete with strolling minstrels), and caps her evening off at Universal's City Walk, enjoying the sounds of the Latin Quarter. A trip to Portofino, Italy, couldn't be more convenient!This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
