This was our 1st time staying at the Hard Rock, having stayed at the Royal Pacific the first two times. This is a great hotel. Staff is super friendly and attentive. Loved that I could just text questions and get almost immediate replies from them. The only drawback is I think the hotel restaurants are a little pricey, but then...

I have to say I was at first hesitant about staying here. There was only one slide, as opposed to some of the neighboring hotels that have multiple waterslides and many things to keep kids busy during the day. On the days that we went to the theme parks in universal, staying at the hard rock was worth every penny....

We chose Hard Rock primarily due to the proximity to the Universal Parks. It's a beautiful property with really nice landscaping. We arrived early on Wednesday morning after staying near MCO the night before. It was a Wednesday morning in February so we didn't expect it to be busy at this time, and it wasn't. We were greeted at the...

The proximity of the this hotel to the park makes it the perfect choice for staying in if you are visiting Universal. We always walked to and from the parks but the boats were a good option too. The express passes you get when you check in are a fantastic bonus. Our rooms were bright, modern and spacious. We didn't...

Next time we visit, the Hard Rock is where we are staying. Beach Club is a awesome place to hang out while the kids are in the pool. Hotel proximity to the park is the best. The Kitchen restaurant has the best breakfast buffet.

Been staying here for more than a decade for both family trips and for business (I have business in Orlando 3-5 times a year for multiple days). This year though, significant problems. Apparently upon check-in they put a very low daily room chargeback capability on your room keys without notification. The result? A room charge being erroneously rejected at a...

We were put into a handicap room without them asking and the bathroom was a disaster. The shower water ran all over the bathroom floor when used. It was a make shift room and we were extremely disappointed. The mattresses were so bad that you rolled to the middle of the bed.

I want to make this a yearly trip. I felt like I was valued and treated with kid gloves. It was well thought out room and recognized the needs of the traveler. It was nice to unwind and enjoy the creature comforters of the room.
