This place is just way cooler than other hotel. The other luxury brands just come off fake like everyone is reading a script. This place awesome with some amazing memorabilia and they give you a free play list for your room, such on that Marriott.

We enjoyed our stay here while in Orlando. We were only planning on visiting Universal Studios, which is a 15 minute walking distance from hotel. There is also a water taxi you can take, which was a relief for our aching feet after a long day at the park. The room was nice, clean and had a fridge. There is... More

Hotel is close to the parks and city walk. People were friendly and overall happy to be there. There were several ways to travel to the park, walk, bike taxi, shuttle boat or shuttle bus. Be prepared to pay 20 bucks a night if you have a car to park or write the Loews company and complain. I don't think... More

This a great place for Couples, Friends and families. The hotel is attached to Universal Orlando with transportation to the parks and discounted rates. The hotel is clean, they have an amazing pool area with fun music and great bars. Prices are usually high for Orlando when there are plenty of nice properties to choose from I only stay here... More

Paying way too much for a room that smells like dog (even though i was assured i'm not staying in one of the pet-friendly rooms. Sheets had hair on them;furniture worn and stained and had to call the front desk to force a technician to crank up the ac to attempt to clear out the stuffiness. The only benefits is... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of our honeymoon, it is a generally good hotel and made better with the close proximity to the parks and City Walk. All the staff were very friendly and always helpful, The Kitchen breakfast was delicious and plenty of choice from sausages and bacon trough to cereals and fruit. We had hoped to... More

We've been going to the Hard Rock Hotel on and off since just after it opened in 2001 and this was (I think) our 7th stay so I’m not sure if that puts us in the category of regulars but I think we've been enough times to give a few observations. Our recent stay was as part of a 2... More

Stayed at the Hard Rock with my husband & 12yr old son for 11 nights in August. Got a refurbished room on the 7th floor - well worth the extra ££. The hotel is theme park 5* rather than Dorchester London 5* but the early entry and unlimited express pass are priceless in the heat. We were at the end... More

And it is sweet. Huge room with a couch and large table to work on. Bed is the best I've slept on in a while. The kitchen restaurant on site is nice but casual and has a pretty good variety (prices won't ruin you either). The gym is not free unless specifically defined in your reservation or contract. (Normally $10/day).... More
