Our room was big and beautiful. The bathroom was fantastic with a vanity and sink separate from the toilet and shower, making it easier for a family to get ready. Ample dresser drawers. Common areas and grounds were beautiful. Only the pool was a little disappointing

Hotel no great shakes, small rooms for a family of four and tiny bathroom (nice products though). The pool looks great but is too shallow for a decent swim. However... great location for universal. Enjoyed the river boat rides to the parks and made full use of the 8am early start at Harry Potter and the Express passes.

Great hotel, very friendly staff that are very helpful. Hotel is only a five minute walk to the parks. Great location. The pool is great, it's not very deep but the underwater music is pretty awesome.

We just returned from a week long stay at the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal. Everything about our vacation was perfect! We had 17 people in our group, ranging in age from toddler to seventy-something! We opted for 4 club level rooms which we LOVED! The rooms themselves (recently renovated) are similar to the regular double queen on the other... More

Fantastic hotel and vibe. Very helpful and friendly staff. Suitable for all ages. Great location to universal studios and IOA. Express passes are included in the stay and early entry to Harry potter which is defiantly needed. Weather is very HOT and Humid in august. Hotel is well air conditioned.

We decided to end our vacation - a week on the Disney Fantasy - with a two night stay in Orlando. Our requirements weren't extensive - we just wanted a great pool for the kids, and to be close to some restaurants/shops. The Hard Rock had good reviews and the pictures of the pool were appealing. Plus, we would be... More

Location is everything, and this hotel has location. Universal Studios is a 10 minute scenic walk. The rooms were good and clean. The hotel is beautiful, with many rock and roll exhibits (including a Hendrix guitar, a gift from Brian Jones). The breakfast buffet was outstanding, and the pool was a great time ( except that it's very shallow).

Enjoyed our stay, staff very good but not 5* A little on the tired side in the rooms and ready for a refurbishment (tired dark browns/greens ) & pricey. Hired a cabana at $200 a day & struggled to hear TV due to loud music speakers without controls just outside. ( && bitten to pieces by something?) (Breakfast roll ,... More
