Lovely hotel with fabulous atmosphere. Restaurant food fantastic. Pool area welcoming and well maintained. Proximity to theme parks and fast past ticket invaluable. Brilliant place to stay for all ages. (Travelling party consisted of myself, 67 year old mother, 16 and 8 year old sons)

We took the family to Florida to see Harry Potter park and booked Hard Rock due to location. Completely fell in love with the hotel, the pool area and the walk to the park. My kids have traveled all over but this was their absolute favorite vacation spot. We will definitely return!

We stayed here three nights. We were originally going to stay at the Portafino Bay Hotel, but we decided on the Hard Rock Hotel. The resort is beautiful and has a rock 'n' roll feel. The hotel room keys give anyone a one hour early entrance to Universal. The location is perfect for both of the parks; we were able to walk to the parks in fifteen minutes. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, however, the bathroom is very small. We rented a cabana for two days, and it was great. Stay here!

Worth staying just for the fast pass and early entry to go on fj.
Staff very friendly and kind to the kids.
I had a badge, a mention on the birthday page in reception, a piece of birthday cake in our room and a voucher for a drink or ice cream because I was celebrating my birthday, which were all nice touches.
It's so easy to get to park, I walked it in about 7 mins, even got to entrance of universal studios before the rest of family who used the boat, as it stops other side of the water.
Rooms were plenty big enough, with 2 very comfy beds and a cot for my 2 year old.
Movie on the big screen by the heated pool (shrek 4) and character dining with Bart add to a very enjoyable stay.

Nice bedding, nice room but no better than Embassy or Hampton. Atleast with them you get 2 rooms microwave 'fridge breakfast and drinks without using a credit card limit to have it. Like many things - too much hype for too little product.
You better pay for the top of the line room if you expect anything special.
The Loews Hotels clearly and distinctlnctly seperate classes by financial status at every inch of their properties.
