The hotel was lovely, but I think it is over-priced if you are not using the front of the line privilege. The pool area was nice, but not fantastic. The beds were very comfy. This is much more of a family hotel then the typical Hard Rock Hotels.

Room was fine - two double beds with plenty of room to move around. We booked this for a single night whilst staying elsewhere in Orlando to get the free upgraded fastpasses. This allowed us unlimited queue jumps on most of the rides for both the day we arrived and the day we departed. We also got into the parks... More

The staff is friendly and helpful. We stayed on the club level floor and the people who work in the club room are great. The hotel is clean, safe, and a lot of fun. Walking distance to both parks is excellent. We will stay here again.

More than worth the money when you figure all you get for your stay.The only place you should stay if visiting Universal Studios. The staff is awesome and will have a solution for any issues you might have.

Clearly you don't expect a Hard Rock Hotel to be a haven of peace & tranquility. The "noisy" stems from other guests rolling in at all hours of the morning (depending on amount of alcohol consumed at the event they'd been attending) and continuing the part / concert in their room (the walls appeared to have the acoustic properties of...

Flew in and didn't stop for seven days - hotel was great - service very sharp and very friendly! We stayed on 7th floor which was great as breakfast some and dusted ready for the parks! Very noisy if you needed to chill out after the parks though. Take a jumper for the hotel lobby and club room as it... More

Yes, the hotel is a place with lots of fun things to do for kids and adults. The foods served are wonderful and the rooms are as fine as can be expected. The place is huge and expensive... But great for those who can afford it (I was guest of my kids....). Only a short walk through a beautiful park,... More

The resort itself overall is gorgeous and location is perfect for walking or water taxi to universal parks. Renovated rooms are gorgeous and high tech. Unfortunately there was a leak from windows in our original room and we were given a different room but resort was sold out so we ended up on 2nd floor where rooms are not renovated... More

Nice hotel ... room prices good ... room came with a fast pass to park rides ... the prices were too high for food, drink, and products provided ... $2.25 for a small bag of chips ... you pay a $1.00 extra for the cone for an ice cream cone ... com'on ... and you pay an automatic 18.5% service...

This hotel is great. It is an effortless 2 and a half minute walk or a 5 minute boat ride to Universal. Staying at the hotel is a good choice, because it allows you to get into the park earlier than general admission and you are then able to get fast passes. Fast passes allow you to finish the park...
