Well worth the money because of the easy access pass. The water taxi very convenient. The pool was great. Don't order wine at the bar. A single glass is $16 plus tip. No special wine. The kitchen was horrible.

Great hotel with excellent location for Universal, Islands of Adventure and City Walks, within walking distance. Booking this Hotel allows you early entry into Harry Potter and Fast passes for both Parks. Fab pool area with a great DJ/kids entertainer. The slight downside is alcohol prices at Pool bar a beer and a cocktail $38, you get your next beer... More

We booked this hotel for a 1 night stay whilst in Florida on holiday. We'd heard about the benefits of staying there if you were visiting the Universal parks but you're always a bit sceptical if it will work out.....but it did! Check in was great, we got there early as you can get in the parks 1 hour before... More

We stayed for one night in 2008 and liked it so much that we wanted to return so decided to stay for 4 nights in a club level room. The room and hotel were as great as we remembered - the pool was fab - activities for the kids with a bar/restaurant next to it for snacks and drinks. Close... More

Modern and clean hotel, great pool and good bars and restaurants on site. My only niggle is that the hotel is so big it tool us ages to get to our room, we were on the 5th floor right at the end of the corridor.

Beautiful hotel and property, comfortable rooms, lovely staff, great food, fabulous pool, and convenient access to Universal theme parks. The steak sandwich at the pool was delicious, and also the breakfast buffet at the Kitchen restaurant too. Also, it was great to have the Starbucks there in the hotel. The one and only disappointment was that I could not connect... More

Was the best part of the two week holiday and I would stay here again for 4-5 nights. the passes are INVALUABLE for the length of the queues in July/aug. Loved the location and the Citiwalk area and was a great... More

This is the best hotel to stay at when visiting Universal Studios Orlando! The staff is amazing, service is great, and the rooms rock!! The pool area was a perfect place to hang out for the day when not wanting to visit the parks...

We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando and it was amazing ! Staff are friendly and courteous . Property is gorgeous and meticulously manicured. Loved all the Rock and Roll memorabilia and the catalog that allowed a self guided tour. A few minutes walk to universal. Or, you can take the water taxi! We had the room... More
