Our family stayed here for 5 days and enjoyed it very much. Staff are friendly. Property was nice and well maintained. Room was nice, clean, and sizeable. Near and easy commute to Universal parks and city walk.

If you're a family considering purchasing the express tickets, it's really is a no brainer to book a couple of nights at the Hard Rock instead as it's so much better value. We were staying in a Villa but this makes a nice little mini-break. There's 2 adults and three girls (15, 11, 11) and we all love this hotel... More

Having spent many a summer vacation in Orlando we thought this year we'd give the Hard Rock Hotel a Universal a try... the only disapointment was that we'd never done it sooner. It was nothing short of amazing! From the check-in to the room service... yes we even tried that, was first class. The location was superb, what a great... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel while visiting Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. The hotel is a short walk from the entrance to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure is only a little bit more of a walk. Our room was spacious and clean and the service was friendly. City Walk is also a... More

The pool is big, great place for family/friends. It is very clean and friendly staff. If I remember correctly, the pool has music underwater! The lobby is amazing too. The tables have various guitars signed by different artists.

Although on the more expensive side, this is the place to be if you want the ability to walk to Universal and not waste time coming and going from hotel during the day. A ferry is available, but it is so close to Universal Studios and City Walk, it's shorter to just walk it. Very fun hotel with great music... More

Fabulous time from check-in to check-out. The rooms have been recently renovated and they are WELL DONE. Fresh, bright, spacious and fun. The location is perfect for Universal - a 5 min walk and you are there. Always been a fan of the Hard Rock brand as a music lover and the hotel is just a gem. I will certainly... More

I took my Husband there for his 50th Birthday. We had an amazing time. You can walk to Universal, and Islands of Adventure or take their water Taxi. City Walk has a Movie Theater, Shops, Restaurants and a Starbucks. Everyone was very friendly from the second we pulled up to Valet to checking in and then helping us to our... More
