Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Did have to change rooms one night and found that the pilowtop mattresses were not the same (no pillowtop-just... More

The Hard Rock Orlando was a great experience that definitely made me want to come back. The hotel features rock 'n roll memorabilia all throughout while of course playing classic rock 'n roll wherever you go. The rooms where exceptionally clean and very spacious. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. The hotel features an awesome pool with an... More

This hotel is located in a great area. We loved that were able to walk to the Universal parks. The beds in the rooms are very comfortable. Whenever I came out fo my room, the music that was playing got me ready for my day. The last day of our stay we used the Amazing fitness center. If you are... More

We had a below average experience at the Hard Rock. Staff overall was not helpful and seemed under trained. Hotel vibe and finishes was not the wow would expect and really a three star hotel not a four star. Pool very crowded. Room service food was above average and liked the marketplace, although bagels were not fresh. Best part of... More

Spent five nights here with family for summer vacation. Upgraded to club level, seventh floor rock royalty. The room was nice however there were a couple things that for the price I thought should've been addressed: 1) OMG, the room is hot. The rooms have a motion sensor so when you leave the room to go to sleep it sets... More

pricey but worth it due to the express passes, beautiful hotel, very luxurious, no need to leave, you can stay onsite and do everything. The Kitchen restaurant has an awesome buffet breakfast. They make everything easy

Nice room but dusty, thin walls. Had issues with reservations, check-in and parking fees. Check everything carefully. Walking to park was annoying due to many taxi bikes making you move out of the way.

We have just returned from an overnight stay here which proved to be perfect for our visits to the Universal parks. We arrived at 7 am to take advantage if the pre-registration option which gave us early entry to the parks and fast passes for everything except the Harry Potter rides. As it is extremely busy at this time of... More

We arrived for a 5 night stay and was greeted promptly. The stay was very nice no problems. The service in the restaurants and stores was very good and housekeeping was very prompt. I would recommend this hotel.

For what you pay and for what you receive, other options and choices should be considered. Food is excellent, staff are nice. Rooms are about average. Convenience to parks was perfect. Pool could use more umbrellas and newer lounge chairs.
