We stayed at the Hard Rock from 8/9-8/13. This was our first stay at the Hard Rock and we loved it. It was super convenient, the room was clean, and the service was wonderful. It was definately worth staying at a Universal Resort to take advantage of the fast pass and early access to the parks. My only complaint is... More

We stayed here for two nights while on holiday in our Villa in Orlando. Would certainly recommend. We had one of the newly refurbished rooms which was lovely, excellent beds and loved the coffee machine that meant we could take coffee on our walk to the parks. The early admission to the parks was great, mind you we were there... More

Stayed here during our Tour de Florida and found it really hard to leave. Hotel is in great shape, staff is very attentive and helpful Location is fab for visiting the Universal Studios. The Kitchen is a wonderful breakfast location and the Pool is absolutely fabulous. All that plus the complimentary Fast Pass justify the price. Would definitely return when... More

This is the rare hotel that comfortably accommodates a family of 5 in one room (the Deluxe Queen Room category). Our room was clean and well appointed, although the pull-out bed was predictably saggy. The food was good but expensive. The breakfast buffet is alright, if uninspired. There is a children's buffet with typical fare (burgers, fries, mac and cheese)... More

We have stayed at the Hard Rock many times and will continue to do so in the future. It's a nice hotel with all of the amenities one would expect and it is being refurbished floor by floor now - although even those that haven't been changed are still fine. Service was quick and efficient from the valets to the... More

Stayed in Club Level. Rooms were very spacious and clean except for shower curtain that needed serious attention. Club level lounge staff was very friendly and complimentary snacks and beverages were great. Loved the mimosas for breakfast, chicken wings with beer for evening snacks and milk and cookies before bed. The air cool the room properly and tried calling several... More

We arrived exhausted the third week on a long vacation that had us all over Florida. Check in was smooth the room was perfect and the beds were comfortable. The biggest perk of this hotel has to be the proximity to the parks and honestly I am sure you have heard that before. What I dont read when I see... More

We had an amazing experience at the Hard Rock it was well worth the money! We stayed on the club level and the breakfast, lunch snacks and hot snacks in the evening were really good. The staff was extremely friendly and the fast passes that you get for the parks make it well worth the additional money. The beds were... More
