Good hotel

The Hard Rock was good, but I'm not sure I'll stay there again. I've stayed at several different places in Orlando, both on and off properties, and while the rooms were nice enough and the staff was very friendly (the outdoor bar and wait staff were especially attentive and friendly), this location didn't come with the same bells and whistles as some of the others. It is very close to the parks and not outrageously expensive though, so it is a good option if you are looking to just go for parks.

Express pass all the way!

We all had a good time staying at the hotel. After along day at the park, it was nice to walk a short trip to relax at the pool. The pool was just ok, I expected a little more out of Hard Rock. Some service staff were excellent, but not all. The lady that checked us didn't explain the express pass to me so I didn't get it till the second day!!!

Better than expected

I loved the location of the hotel. It was the closest to the park and if we didn't feel like walking we could always ride on the boat or get a rickshaw. The service was great. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here.

Deluxe Queen Room ROCKS!

The Hard Rock Hotel really delivered for us. We checked in around 9 a.m., grabbed our Express Passes and went off to Universal Studios. At 10:38 I received a text telling me our room was ready. When we made it back to the lobby after lunch we were given our room number and fresh keys. Our Deluxe Queen room on the 4th floor was a long walk from the lobby however that meant is was mere steps from the pool gate/walkway to the parks. We lucked out with a pool view room, which was beautiful. The deluxe queen room was huge, with a queen size sleeper sofa. There was also an arm chair and two bar stools at the table/desk. At 500 sq ft this room gave us plenty of space to spread out. It also afforded our two teens their own beds. The pull out sofa featured a 2 inch foam mattress with no springs. My daughter found it to be very firm and comfortable. The closet was around the corner from the main room, which served as a dressing room for our family of 4. The sink with a large countertop outside the bathroom gave us extra space to get ready. The bathroom itself had a small sink which came in handy as well. The bathroom was nice but rather standard. There was room to open and close the door without standing on the toilet though. All in all we were very pleased with our room at the Hard Rock Hotel.

If you visit Universal stay at the Hard-rock Hotel

Wonderful flight and outstanding weather. Hard Rock Hotel is a short beautifully landscaped walk to both parks and city walk. For a family of four plenty of great places to eat without long waits for a table. We have visited before so to our disappointment the Nascar restaurant was closed. Visit the movie theatre at city walk for a awesome movie experience.

Awesome end to family trip

Hotel room was far cleaner than the room we stayed at in hard rock 7 years ago. Deluxe queen room was perfect size for family of four. Pool and poolside service were great. Pool slide was better than any Disney pool slide. The kitchen food was spot on after a long day at the parks

Great family trip

I traveled with my 14 year old daughter, my 21 year old son and my son's 20 year old girlfriend. The Hard Rock was the perfect place for us to stay for our Universal Vacation. It's the closest hotel to the parks and the pool is amazing. The staff is super friendly and helpful. They made you feel special. My son also was a huge fan of The Kitchen for breakfast.

Location was key!

The location of the hotel and its proximity to the theme parks made it walking-distance possible. This is crucial for those who wants take advantage of a mid-afternoon rest in their own hotel room or a just simple quick change of clothes.
