I've been here twice, and the place just has this amazing vibe! I'm a rock music fan, so this place fitted perfectly with the things I love! I mean, there was a massive picture of Steven Tyler in the lobby!. I will be coming back here. It's one of the 4 universal orlando hotels, and this is just perfect

Convenient stay so close to universal sand islands of adventure. Check in great and informative. Room was fantastic, spacious, clean with all amenities. Concierge service was fantastic and they couldn't help enough when we had some ticket problems with our agent. Would recommend the food at the Kitchen restaurant. The buffet breakfast (eat as much as you want) for €19.95... More

We stayed for 3 nights over Christmas and had a ball. We loved the ambience of the premises, well kept grounds and friendly staff. On arrival we were told we had a pool view room instead of garden view which was awesome, we could see the fireworks at universal from our room! We were up early to hit the parks... More

We stayed at this hotel 1/9 - 1/12. Although expensive the "all access pass" to the theme parks helps defray the cost. I was happy we were in a recently renovated room as I have stayed at this hotel numerous times since 2004 and felt it needed some TLC. I always seem to get a room way down the corridor... More

This hotel was far beyond our expectations! So funky and luxurious - teenagers were in awe. Early entry to park and fast pass was great and the boat transport was convenient. Pool looked great however we were there during a cold snap so didn't use it. Our room was a long way from elevatorso would ask to be closer next... More

We just returned from a 3 night stay at Hard Rock and can not say enough great things about staying here. The staff was friendly and attentive. The hotel room was super clean and the beds very comfortable. It is a short walk to Universal and Islands of Adventure but feels miles away. A great place to stay to enjoy... More

I was really disappointed that no one made us aware of hotel family activities. We only found out about movies at night on our last day. I havent stayed at a hotel that provided such little information (none) to a first time guest. Proximity to the theme parks was excellent.

Stayed with my wife and two kids (13 and 11) from Jan 4th to the 8th 2015. As I noted in the title, good luck to other hotels at meeting my expectations now that I have stayed at the Hard rock club level.

Loved this hotel! Beautiful, very clean, gorgeous large outdoor pool with ping pong tables, shuffleboard, hula hoops, movie screen, beach area. Kids swam and watched iron man after spending the day at universal in January! A tad cold for me and my husband but we enjoyed drinks and relaxed while they swam. Super easy walk to the parks and restaurants.... More
