When going to Orlando. It is always the Hard Rock as our first choice. Staff, rooms, amenities etc. are top notch. Never have a problem with the Hotel. The park people at the hotel is another issue but they are not associated with the Hotel so I can't hold them accountable for that. If you are planning on going to... More

Cleanliness of hotel, great, staff and efficiency, second to none, however, America's theme parks are usually governed by strict cigarette smoking area's, not at the Hard Rock, although not in the hotel, smoking was permitted anywhere around the pool, and also at the 'family orientated' poolside bar, also on checking out, I was advised that I owed a $10 dollar...

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.
