I stayed at this hotel with my children and my parents. All of us really enjoyed the hotel as well as Universal. We'd been to Disney many times and were not expecting to enjoy Universal and the Universal on-site property was much, but were were more than pleasantly surprised. We had a blast.
The Hard Rock hotel is fun and exciting and has a great vibe. The pool is fabulous and had a lot of activities going on to keep everyone entertained either by participating or watching.
We stayed in a club room and felt it was really worth the money. Breakfast was adequate with a oatmeal, cold cereals, boiled eggs, pastries, fruit and yogurt. Evening snacks were also good and changed every night. And we took full advantage of the free evening drinks (costing only a tip!) The only downside to the lounge were some of the other patrons who showed up dressed in wet swimsuits at times and other times in their pajamas. They were the same offenders day after day.
The Hard Rock is the easiest hotel on property to walk to the parks. It's a 10 minute walk for quick walkers and 15 minutes if you tend to stroll. The walk is along a nice bamboo lined path. Shuttle buses and boats are also available.
We ate in The Palm and The Kitchen and had good meals at both.More
