We chose The Hard Rock hotel primarily for our teens sake. And it was worth it, a great place for young souls! Great pool area with good activities. Cool place - everything in the hotel is very cool. Good restaurants - and great service. We had chosen the cheaper rooms - and that was maybe not so great as the...

Excellent location close to Universal parks, take the short walk or the shuttle boat. If you walk, exit from the lobby to the parking lot, then there is 2 min walk to the main entrance. Hotel facilities are good, pool area is nice, restaurant and ice cream kiosk are good, room standard is high, but what makes this hotel worth...

If you are going to Universal (or indeed the Orlando area), this is the hotel for you. I loved every single aspect of my stay and only wish we had spent the money and stayed for the whole week we were in Orlando. We just stayed for 2 nights as we planned to spend 3 days in Universal and it...

Booked a room for 5, slightly disappointed it wasn't available when we arrived to check-in 3pm, (4pm is official check in time) receptionist didn't seem particularly bothered or helpful, just told me to go to club lounge and the staff there would notify me when one became available. The rest of my family went to the park and I stayed...

Yes this place is a little on the high priced side, but IMO its well worth it. Very Clean, rooms are newer(reno'd). We walked or took the boat to Universal.

We loved the HRH. We booked this particular room because it is 500 square meters and the largest on property before you upgrade to the suites. The descriptions suggests that the foldaway bed is in an annex - be warned, this is NOT the case in all rooms. The sofabed was not sectioned off in any way in our room,...

I spent three nights here with friends in October. The hotel was wonderful with a very close proximity to Universal/CityWalk. The hotel was very clean, the service was good yet relaxed and the amenities they offered were very enjoyable. We stay here primarily due to the express pass that's included and the easy access to the parks. Breakfast in the...

We spent 3 nights at the Hard Rock Hotel. The location is excellent. You can walk to Universal Studios in under 5 minutes and Islands of Adventure in 15.
