Let me be frank, this was NOT our first choice in the Universal Hotels. What an error that would have been. With 8 and 9 year old boys this was the perfect choice. The staff was consistently friendly and the vibe was relaxing. Movies at the pool while listening to music -great. The kids could swim (nice water slide) while... More

We spent 2 nights at the Hotel and could not fault the place,its very hip and trendy,extremely clean,friendly and helpfull staff, and all the facilities were... More

Hotel is funky and fun and plays great music. It's public spaces are spacious and immaculately clean and the bedrooms are spotless too. Restaurants are great particularly the kitchen and the beach bar. The pool area is beautiful and really relaxing. Ideal for your visit to universal and the fast passes make the stay worthwhile alone.

We loved HRH Orlando. We stayed on the 7th floor, our room was great, amazing view, comfortable bed, everything in good working order. Being so close to the park, along with the early admission and express pass werean added plus. The staff were friendly and gave great service. When we weren't at the park we were by the pool, the...

I was lucky enough to win a holiday through work to visit this hotel at the end of September, beginning of October, and I was completely blown away!! This hotel is beyond anything I've ever experienced at a hotel before. The staff were beyond fantastic, and were so lovely and helpful. We had a bit of trouble at check in... More

You are paying for the name and not the service. Spend all the money for the theme park and hotel and still pay for o-site parking. The staff is not dressed accordingly. The lifeguards were not professional.

Just left The HRH and here are my thoughts. The Good - definitely a cool factor like no other hotel. The memorabilia is off the chain. The hotel is also a 5 min. stroll to the entrance of Unversal Studios or a quick boat ride. My son enjoyed the pool too. The Bad - this resort is large. So large... More

Highly recommend this hotel while visiting Universal Studios. We just returned from a trip with our two teenage sons and found the location to be perfect for touring the parks and enjoyed the hotel amenities and atmosphere. The inclusion of the Universal Express Passes made the hotel more cost effective than when just considering nightly rate. We were also glad... More

We had a 2 night stay at the Hard Rock Hotel at the start of our holiday in Florida. We had one room for the four of us and on arrival we asked for a roll away bed. My son was shattered after the long flight and I don't think the receptionist understood that we wanted the bed straight away... More
