We've stayed at Hard Rock when visiting Universal and Island of adventures. It's a perfect place to be , walking distance to the parks, very good dining options, excellent service, nice rooms and an rock and roll ambience. Last but not least , we all get complimentary fast pass for the parks what is a huge benefit

We stayed at the Hard Rock hotel because if its location to the Universal Studio Park. It is just a small walk to the entrance! Plus, when you stay at the hotel, you get in a hour early before other park people and you get an express pass with your reservation! Over all, a great experience! Dont forget to pack... More

Loved the hotel...am entities, convienence, ambiance. First rate. We got a deluxe room having 2 older children (20 & 17) so each got their own bed. Tons of space for family of four. Can't beat this hotel for its cleanliness. Even though it was Christmas and there were tons of guests the hotel never felt crowded like Disney properities. Having... More

We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel and it exceeded our expectations. Loved the comfort of bed, linens, robes, towels and shampoo/conditioner/soap. Everything was top notch. We took the next step up and stayed on the Concierge level of the hotel. This was great since we were going to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure everyday. Breakfast every morning (including... More

Very celiac friendly. Hotel restaurant staff very helpful. They even have a gluten free menu for dinner. Hotel location could not be better for access to parks. Took us just 5 minutes walking to get to the city walk. Highly recommend this hotel for a great Universal vacation experience.
