First this is a expensive hotel to stay at but the best location for walking to the parks and taking advantage of the express pass and early entry. Housekeeping makes one of the first and last impressions on a guest and I have to say they let us down!! Came to the room upon checking-in only to find a dirty... More

All public areas are loud - rock music- just turn it down and it would be fine. THE INTERNET CANNOT BE RELIED ON - BEWARE!. Average accommodation, with the salvation that it is within easy walking distance to the two theme parks. Fine for a few days, but not more than a week. $21+ to park you car per day,... More

My wife and two teenage girls spent three nights in a club level room at the Hard Rock while we were in Orlando this July. While expensive, the unlimited express passes, early entry to the parks, continental breakfast, snacks, and drinks made it a good value for us. The atmosphere in the hotel, and beautiful pool also added to the... More

Stayed here in early July for 4 nights. We booked the hotel & universal ticket package. We stayed in the Club Level with a pool view. The room is nothing special but I was content with it. I wish the room had a balcony because the view is amazing. The bed was comfy. Our room came with free breakfast at... More

Great choice to stay during visit to Universal with the grands (age 12 & 14). They really liked the pool, room service & easy walk to parks. Very short walk to parks made it easy to back & forth from hotel to parks. The hotel is a great value if you take advantage of the fast pass & early access... More

This was our second visit to Hard Rock Universal Orlando. We like it because it is walking distance to both Universal Theme Parks and offers Express Pass to the major attractions at the parks. The atmosphere is loud and fits the hotel's brand - nice for the young people, but the hotel is a bit noisey even into the late... More

Booked two rooms for one night. Very, very expensive. Very much overrated for what we got. One room had to be changed as it was filthy. Suppose to have been upgraded to garden rooms, one of them was looking over the car park and what looked like a bin. The furniture was very outdated and very tatty. The best part... More

We stayed on the 7th floor Club Rooms that have been newly renovated and they were beautiful. The only problem is the vanity/sink lighting could have been a little brighter. The rooms are clean and the staff is one of the best we have encountered. It's only a five minute walk to Universal Studios Park. Everything about the experience was... More

Loved this hotel .........fab rooms and facilities .....breakfast in the Kitchen is slightly expensive at $20 a head but what a breakfast......you simply wont eat til evening..........it has everything you could imagine...
