It was great to stay at a hotel that is only a 5 minute walk to Universal and Islands of Adventure. My boys (13 & 11) thought the hotel was really fancy:-) It was very nice, but clearly you are paying a premium for the location. The pool is very nice and the food at the "Beach Club" (pool restaurant)... More

Stayed here for several days while visiting the park. I was amazed at how quiet it was in the rooms. We even had a connecting room with some kids next door and never heard a peep. Even the hallways were quiet. The amenities were good. We frequented the local market cafe onsite every morning for coffee and breakfast. Even had... More

From the valet to the front desk with the admiring views of the hotel itself this is a must stay for all that are in Orlando! It was clean, friendly, rock-n-roll, comfortable and most of all stunning! I would highly suggest staying here if you are going to take in Universal and Islands of Adventure theme parks because you are... More

Im going to keep this short and sweet. Perfect service, 2 minuet walk from the universal theme parks. What more could you want? Stay here for the five star treatment. Nothing was ever too much. Can't wait to come back here for my next stay!!

Rooms , dining , and shops were all top notch . Family had a fabulous time and will go back before summers over . Do not have a single complaint about the property . Rock royalty is worth the extra price

We have stayed at Portofino Bay and Royal Pacific before, but Hard Rock makes me with this vacation would never end. The location, within the resort area, is absolutely perfect! The rooms are a great size. We had two queens/garden view and it was quiet and well-appointed. Housekeeping was efficient and polite. From check-in onwards everyone was fantastic. *our checkin...

Staying at Hard Rock Hotel had three fantastic benefits: location, early entry into the park and unlimited express passes. We got the two day pass with the third day free tickets and since we stayed at Hard Rock Hotel we could enter the park 1 hour early each day. What we found out was it’s an hour early to Hogwarts...

After a not great start, pipe burst forced us to be sent over to Royal Pacific the first night we attempted to check in, the Hard Rock staff particularly the front desk staff more than made up for our inconvenience. Pool view room was spacious, very clean and quiet. After staying here I'm not going back to Portofino (more couple/romantic)... More

We've stayed her years ago when kids were smaller but this trip was just the two of us. We stayed on the 7th floor (the Club Floor) and that was a great choice. It make the end of your day and the beginning of it so much easier. The value in that upgrade is a no brainer. Not having Kids... More

It's been years since I stayed at the Hard Rock as I found their rooms to be too dark, however the remodeling that was done recently has been a great change as the rooms are lighter and more attractive. With the advantage of the Express Pass for most of the rides at Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure, along with this being... More
