We had a very nice stay at The Hard Rock. The staff is terrific. We stayed on the Club Level and it certainly isn't a cheap few days. That said, its an expensive stay to be close the parks. The club level offers breakfast, snacks in the afternoon and then a hot happy hour.

We are thrilled you experienced the Rock Star experience from the moment you arrived. Our Rock Royalty Lounge is the perfect way to get those extra must have amenities while staying on property. With turn down service, continental breakfast, snacks throughout the afternoon, afternoon appetizers, Complimentary Beer and Wine Happy Hour, and evening desserts you can't go wrong. Tie that in with our close proximity to the parks, Early Park Admission, and Universal Unlimited Express Passes, your vacation is setup for success. I will be reviewing all of your comments with our management team as we are always looking for new and innovative ways to create a wonderful experience for our guests. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon for another vacation fit for a Rock Star.

Room, pool, surroundings all good, parking and breakfast was extra, pricey, but a very pleasant walk or free boat trip of 5mins into Universal. Buffet breakfast the Kitchen is pricey but worth every cent.

You are able to book when you check in. You must go to the fitness center to do so. I would do it as soon as you check in. They may have changed the way you are able to reserve.
