Had a wonderful time staying at the Hard Rock, our only problem was the time it took to get our room. We arrived at 1:30 and didn't get a room until close to 6:00 that night. Most of the guests asked for a late check out and it made check in a real problem.

We were thrilled with our recent stay at the Hard Rock Hotel. In my view this has to be one of the best places to stay if you are visiting Universal Studios! The fact alone that you get the Express Pass is worth it to get to the front of all the lines, but there are many other pluses. This... More

The Hard Rock is a very nice hotel. The rooms are big and roomy. The restaurants have excellent menus with service to match. The pool area is huge with full bar service. Staying at this hotel is great if are planning some time at Universal. Each person receives an express pass for the parks which literally puts you to the... More

7 of us stayed here for 1 night in April while on a 3 week family trip to Florida. We had an amazing time, the staff were very helpful and friendly and on checking in we found we had been given a free upgrade to a king suite with an adjoining standard room. Our four daughters loved the theming and... More

Universal has 3 hotels that give you free fast passes. I recommend Hard Rock only for teens & up. The other two have better amenities and are more suited for smaller children than Hard Rock. We stayed on the club floor. It really didn't save us any money but was a nice convenience to have drinks always available & they... More

This is our third time to stay at this hotel. Our flight got in late and the room we originally requested was sold out so we were upgraded to the 7th floor club level. What a great surprise. This floor has free breakfast and other snacks and drinks throughout the day. Very nice perk. The room was super clean and... More

We just checked out of the hotel (room 5060). My one main comment is that this hotel is better then the pictures, the rooms are massive and very trendy and the resort offers a lot of privileges for guests. The main one being the express pass to universal, as well as the hour early admission, which you need if you... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the HRH for 2 nights beginning of May. We came from a 4 night stay at WDW (Wilderness Lodge) - so it was bit of a contrast from that. The hotel itself is spacious, clean, and quite modern. This goes for the rooms as well, although I personally felt they were a little too... More

We stayed at the Hard Rock around Mother's Day, and it was pretty nice, but there are a few things I might do differently next time. Hotel in General Hard Rock is the closest of the hotels to Universal Studios. You can take the water taxi in, but it seems to go faster to just walk. In fact, the walk... More

Great place to stay. Was with my 2 teenage boys and they loved it. Rooms were nice and clean, as was the pool area and hotel in general. Will definitely stay here again. Felt completely safe and the staff was excellent.
