Super thin walls (hope your neighbors are quiet!); filthy trashcans in the rooms; torn bed linens; no microwave so you have to spend more on food; LOUD, impatient housekeepers who want you out!! Concierge service is kind of a joke.

We just came back from the Hard Rock in Orlando. One of the best hotel experiences we've ever had. We definitely made the right choice in booking club level. We were a party of five and we definitely got our monies worth-continental breakfast, snacks and happy hour plus water and coffee all day long! Staff was friendly and went out... More

This was my 4th stay @ Universal Orlando. The obvious reason is the close proximity to the parks and City Walk. My last stay, we only stayed at the resort to enjoy the enmities, never hit the parks. Must stay on the 7th floor--well worth the extra $$ for the 24hr coffee-soda-water!! yogurt & cereal for bfast, snacks in the... More

This place is exactly what I expected. This is a hotel directly linked to two theme parks and a dining and entertainment boardwalk. Hard Rock Hotel is the perfect place to stay while visiting Universal Orlando. We stayed here because of the hotel's close proximity to the Parks, early park entry and the free express pass. When you calculate the... More

Had a wonderful stay at the Hard Rock Hotel - booked 1 night purely to get early entrance to Harry Potter and the express passes for Universal. Took 10 minutes to walk through the car park - although you can also use the water taxi (which we did in the evening) or walk through the gardens. We checked in early... More

Service at the hardrock was goos. The staff is very friendly and willing. I would never go back to the hardrock again. I stayed 4 days in total, the rooms are old they are small for the 350.00 per night. They barely cleaned my room. In one occasion my beds were made but wrinkled and out of place. They didnt... More

We stayed at Hard Rock Orlando for family vacation. The room and beds were great. Everyone was friendly. The pool area had many activities. It as a very short walk to City Walk and the parks. Rooms were relatively large. Happy that they still provide full size pillows!

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
