Great meal, great environment. Would go again when next in orlando. Shocked to have photo taken as soon as we arrived and felt pressured to buy but we didn't like the picture so had it removed from our bill. Bit more expensive than other places we visited but nice for a treat and to see inside. Kids loved the shop.

Took our family of four here for a fortnight August 2014. We were following from a holiday in Disney two years ago and I was apprehensive that it couldn't possibly match the wonders of staying in the Mouse House. I was wrong! With two young teenagers (13 and 16), this hotel proved to be the perfect mix of cool and... More

We just came back from our Halloween Horror Nights stay at the Hard Rock in Orlando. We had a great time as always. The best hotel at Universal Orlando. The rooms were great, as was the food and the service. The staff is also friendly and very helpful. I would recommend this hotel whether you want to relax or play.

A fabulous two day stay at the Hard Rock Hotel. Not the cheapest place in Orlando but includes early entry into Wizzarding World of Harry Potter, Express Passes and the comfiest bed I've ever slept in (kids said it was like sleeping on a cloud!!) Also a lovely relaxing afternoon at a great pool. Wish we'd booked a few more... More

We booked the hotel for one night to take advantage of the unlimited express passes for the universal parks. The hotel was lovely and the service excellent. The price for food and drink is a little on the high side but no more than you would expect from a high class hotel. Would stay again but for longer next time.

We made our annual visit to Universal Studios and were pleasantly greeted by a newly renovated room. The updates to the layout and decor are outstanding providing more space and most importantly, more outlets to charge electronic devices. The wifi is now free but you're limited to 4 devices per room which could be an issue if you factor in... More

Stayed here with my wife to check out Universal Halloween Horror nights and was not disappointed. We've stayed here many times before and this was the best experience yet. Highly recommend staying here if you're going to go to any of the Universal Theme parks.

We had a great time at the Hard Rock Hotel! Everyone is treated like they are someone special! You are their guest and treated as so from the moment you exit your car, until you are once again in your car and on your way! The pool is great for families--they have a water slide, a white sand beach, and... More

Had a great vacation. The hotel is beautiful and so clean. Room is very nice. Keurig in each room is a nice touch. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The pool area is gorgeous. Gardens and pathway to parks is a an enjoyable short walk. Food is pricey but pricey everywhere in this area. Can't say enough about this... More
