It was a short stay but 100% worth it! A hotel which will make you feel like a Rockstar! A real VIP treatment, very helpful and welcoming staff. I proposed to my girlfriend over there and I would like to send my special thanks to Lynn Reynolds from concierge, who was more then helpful.

We had a family of 5 - 2 teenagers and an 8 year-old. This was our first time staying at an on-site hotel. I was concerned about the size of the rooms and eventually chose the Hard Rock as the middle ground between price and size. I AM GLAD WE STAYED HERE! From the moment we stepped on the property...

Had a great time at this hotel. We booked it simply to get the fast pass feature at universal at it was well worth it to skip the lines, even at a slower time of the year. The water taxi over was nice, but just a quick to walk.

There are three hotels that you can stay at on the Universal Studios property and this is the best one if you have teenagers.

We were very pleased with the standard of cleanliness in the room, and also the size of it! The location to the parks is perfect( a five min walk) and the ambiance of the hotel is upbeat and lively with rock memorabilia everywhere! The pool has live rock performances most days and a lively pool bar with a great atmosphere!... More

My family, (myself, husband, and two children under 11) had a wonderful stay at the Hard Rock a few months back. This is my second visit to the Universal parks this year, the last visit I stayed at the Loews Portofino. No complaints on the hotel. We arrived very late, due to our flight, and still only had a short... More

Recently returned from a five day stay. Traveled with the lovely wife and boys (10 and 13). Hotel was all we expected and was well worth the money for the short walk(5 minutes) to Universal Studios and early admission to the Islands. Check in and check out was a breeze and the staff were friendly and helpful. Stayed on the... More
