Great Stay

Wonderful stay at Hard Rock Hotel Orlando. Great rooms, beds and amenities. Can't say enough about the extreme friendliness and service oriented staff. The grounds and pool are awesome. Good food and vibes at The Kitchen. Beautiful short walk to Universal Studios and City Walk. Would gladly stay here again.

Awesome Hotel Stay.

The hotel rooms, pool, service and vibe was awesome. I can be picky, and notice little things, but the Hard Rock staff and rooms were perfect. Spacious room. Good in-room stuff (radio, TV, sundries). Bed was firm - but just what I like. Pool is awesome. Close to parks. Universal Studios park Express Pass included. Top to bottom, the hotel just rocked (and the price was better than expected, too).

Super easy

Second time at hard rock. Remodeled room. Ours had an empty fridge for free this year. Clean, friendly, super easy! Biggest gripe is paying for parking....

Spring Break 2015

Hotel accommodations were stellar! Awesome location close to the park and nice pool that the kids loved. I was pleasantly surprised by the room size of the Deluxe room with 2 queen beds. 500 Sq ft. It easily slept my family of 5 and we did not feel cramped at all. A little pricey but worth it.

Pricey, but good

Good stay at Hard Rock - chose it mainly for Express Pass bonus for staying there, as it was height of spring break - definitely worth it!! The hotel itself is very nice- excellent service all around - from baggage handling to getting extra towels or k-cups for the room. Of course all the memorabilia and constant rock music are nice bonuses )

Great family vacation

The hotel was very comfortable and convieniently located to the parks and citiwalk. This was a great plus. The staff were friendly and made you feel welcome. Our only negative to say is that the hotel's The Kitchen restruant had terrible service and the food was not very good for the price. The staff was nice but it took forever to get waited on and then for our food to arrive. Overall I give the experience a two thumbs up and would recommend it to anyone traveling to the universal area.

Loved the location, the pool, and The Kitchen restaurant. The kids enjoyed looking at all the rock memorabilia and playing the games at the pool. Great stay!

Great Place to Stay for Universal

Had hoped to return to Royal Pacific but zero availability sent us to Hard Rock -- happy it did! Hotel was great fun for the family -- room comfortable, clean, well appointed, although finding it meant a looooong walk from elevator and a need to follow signs the first few times to avoid getting lost. Beds were comfy, fridge was a big help and Keurig with FREE coffee a nice touch and pleasant surprise. Good but pricey breakfast buffet at The Kitchen. (Kids definitely did NOT eat $19.99 worth -- I could have which is why I ordered off the menu!) Beach Bar food and drinks at the pool were delish with varied options, servers super friendly and attentive. Walk to Universal and City Walk the perfect distance. Only took the water taxi once -- for novelty, not necessity. Wish hotel staff had walked us through a map of property at check-in. Felt lost the first few days -- knew there were short cuts but had to find them by accident. Still not sure where in the giant buildings our room was located, even after four days there! Bellman gave us GREAT advice about park, etc., when he brought luggage late on our first night (we went to park when could not check-in.) He was the most informative person we met! Wish I remembered his name. All in all, I would stay again. Wish we had not rented a car -- no need if staying solely at Universal-related properties as all transportation is provided -- even a complimentary town car from Hard Rock to Royal Pacific to visit friends! Cologne scent in lobby was one I have never liked, but certainly could be tolerated for a great week of vacation and perfect weather.

Universal trip

This was our first stay at The Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando. It is the closest hotel to the parks and only a short walk. Walking is about half the time of taking the water taxi. Room was pricey but excellent. The included express passes make the price of the room seem worth it.
