I think this hotel is above average. The pool amenities are excellent and the transportation (water taxi) to the park is efficient and fun. While the hotel itself is not anything special, the beds are comfortable and the rooms are quiet. I appreciated that one reasonable restaurant was available for all 3 meals and that there is a convenience store/coffee...

Stayed here in 2015 whilst on holiday with my family and my brother's family. The location is very convenient, right on the Universal complex. Front service desk staff were friendly but found the others not so much. Rooms were ok but nothing great. Didn't find the seating area in the lobby that comfortable to sit around and relax in. The...

We had another wonderful stay at Hard Rock. Great rooms, food, and service. Perfect location to the parks! The food at the poolside restaurant is delicious - we also enjoyed the breakfast buffet. The rooms are a great size for a family of 4 or 5.

Very pleasant staff. Loved the vibe at this hotel. Room service very good. All staff helpful. Loved the breakfast buffet at The Kitchen. Lunches were great at the Beach Club. This resort is the perfect location. Just a short walk or water taxi to Universal. Water taxi runs until 2am making it very convenient for nights at City Walk. We...

The room is first rate and unique, the location is fantastic too. The pool and grounds are amazing, anywhere on the grounds is a great time. Would recommend for business or family trips. The City Walk restaurants are connected by nice paths or a boat ride, eitherway only 5 mins away.

The hotel location and appearance are awesome. Really fun atmosphere with music themes throughout the hotel. If you don't use valet parking and the bell service you will be hauling all of your bags up 3 flights of stairs (no elevator). Drop the bags at the front door and then go park. Everything was clean and very good except our...

We had the pleasure of staying on the Rock Royalty level and it was awesome. Continental breakfast and afternoon snacks. Our room was clean and comfortable. I was travelling with 2 teenagers. The kids love the early access to the park when staying onsite. We'll be back someday soon.

I highly recommend the Hard Rock Hotel. Everything was fantastic. Everyone was helpful, and the entire facility is awesome. Even walking down the halls to return to my room was an adventure, with all of the music and rock exhibits along the way. If you haven't stayed at a Hard Rock before, you have to experience it at least once.
