The Hotel was perfect. Our family loved being able to walk to Universal and CityWalk from the Hotel. The express fast passes they provide made our days at Universal and Adventure Land that much more enjoyable. We were able to enjoy the parks without the stress of the crowds or lines. The staff was always there to give a friendly...

Thanks for the rockin’ review! The Universal Unlimited Express Passes, and early park admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter help make for a hassle-free vacation. These perks also help you save time for other fun activities, such as our nightly dive-in movie. We look forward to helping you celebrate next Christmas. Take it easy!

We love Hard Rock in general! This hotel is the family favorite! My kids (7 and 9) are always asking to come here. We stay on the club level as you get access to larger rooms and the concierge services....well worth the extra money! This hotel has a great pool with a waterslide and music underwater. We feel like we...

Hotel and staff were incredible. Everything you need is close. The parks are within walking distance. You can take the water taxi back after a long day in the parks. Early access to parks is a huge plus.

“Not worth paying for pool view, save your money as all rooms the same. Elevators are in the middle with very long hallways - choose wisely.”
