Myself, partner and child stayed at the Hard Rock for one night while visiting Universal Studios in July. We arrived early on the day of check in (8am) however our room was not yet ready, which was as to be expected and we just wanted to get to the parks and off load our bags.I am a Hard Rock VIP...

Once again we are having an amazing stay here, we took a king suite, very nice, the shower is a little small ( for me lol). Staff from the valet to the cleaning staff are very friendly. Berry by the pool bar is amazing. I will say in velvet the staff are a little slow, however, we recommend if staying... More

Very nice hotel, Clean rooms and very comfy beds and close to the Universal Park. Very large pool. Good entertainment there too. This guy hosting was very funny. I'm going back to the Hard Rock next time for sure.

I loved seeing all of the costumes & guitars of famous musicians. Very exciting! Enjoyed the ice cream shop staying open late after a long day at Universal, it was a great way to cool foo & relax. I learned the hotel was built like a replica of the Eagles "Hotel California" album cover! So convenient to be able to... More

Expensive but hotel was very nice. The kids liked pool area & slide, would have been nice if there was more than 1 water slide. The staff was very friendly & rooms very clean. Stayed on club level & it was nice having breakfast, drinks & apps, & desserts, although a bit pricey. The only hot item for breakfast was... More

We stayed here for 1 night on Sunday 12th July purely for the fact that if you stay here you get unlimited fast passes and early entry to 2 Universal parks when staying and it only works out slightly dearer and you get an overnight stay and we usually just buy fastpasses for the day when we visit. This hotel... More

Undoubtedly a lovely hotel. The rooms are very nice and the check in staff very friendly. The security is tight (you seem to constantly have to show your room key). The Universal fast passes and early access are a bonus. The buffet breakfast at $19.99 a head is nice if a little pricey. The location is great and you can... More

Loved staying at the hard rock. if you are a fan of rock music tons of pics and outfits. The main pool plays music under water. Rooms are cozy and modern. We liked having lunch by the pool. Definitely geared towards a younger crowd. Loved boat transportation to universal but you are also close enough to walk to the parks... More

This hotel was very nice, and although a little pricey it was well worth the money since it included our amusement park tickets. You are greeted by valet service, which is more than glad to tote your luggage to your room as well as help you load your car when your stay is over. We had a very nice clean... More

Stayed here for one night to get the fast passes and early entry to universal. Nice hotel and great location. Expensive but you do get free fast passes and early entry on the day you check in and the day you check out so it makes it good value . They also brought us a cake as it was my... More
