We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel after doing both Disney world and cruise. It was great to have a change of scenery to a more mature crowd with great music. We were able to check into our room at 9:30 am and the room was a garden view room which was nice. The rooms were spacious and clean. Though I will say it is a very "mazey" hotel so if you don't want to walk too much, request a room near the elevators.
The pool was fantastic and the staff very friendly. The food at the Beachclub and the Kitchen was great, especially the Buffet. There were times where I didn't feel the Concierge could have been as helpful as they should have been. and there is only free wifi in the lobby and spotty wifi at the pool. The staff at the little snack shack/starbucks/ice cream place were wonderful and very very friendly.
Overall, we liked the hard rock, especially since it was a 5 minute walk to Universal. Very convenient and clean. (plus you get express passes to 95% of the attractions at Universal!!)
