Absolutely loved the Hard Rock! I stayed as part of a business trip and was pleasantly surprised at how cool the property is. Great music; friendly staff; great value. I Will stay there every time I go to Orlando.

Just returned from a family trip to Universal. The Hard Rock is a quick walk to the park but there is also a boat and pedicabs waiting to take guests back and forth. Beds are comfy and food was tasty at The Kitchen and Beach Club. Emack and Bolios has great grab and go breakfast and delicious coffee! Will definitely return!

We stayed here for a couple of nights to take advantage of the free express pass you get in the Parks. We were very impressed with the hotel - check in was very efficient and the staff were very polite. We thought the theming was really well done. The rooms were a good size and well maintained. The bar off the lobby was a nice place to get a drink and we really enjoyed the pleasant walkway to the parks by a river. We also really enjoyed all the rock memorabilia that we found around the place. Very much enjoyed the pool area too and would certainly visit again.

Thank you for sharing your recent experiences here at the Hard Rock Hotel. Our lobby bar, Velvet, is the place to be and the place to be seen. Be sure to visit us during Velvet Sessions, Orlando's only rock and roll cocktail party - held monthly. Our memorbilia collection is massive, you never know when you will see something from your favorite artist!

The Hard Rock Hotel is a fantastic place to stay in Orlando, particularly if you intend to visit the Universal Theme Parks. Not only does an unlimited fast pass for the attractions come as part of your hotel room, the parks are only a 10 minute walk from the hotel. The onsite restaurant - The Kitchen -has a great selection for breakfast, lunch and dinner including exemplary accommodation for specific dietary needs. The rooms are huge and are serviced daily with fresh towels etc which is great after a day in the theme parks. Ultimately you get what you pay for and the price may be higher than some of the other universal hotels but it is certainly worth it and I would be back in a heartbeat.

Katie - We're thrilled to hear that you had a great time at the Hard Rock Hotel & Universal Orlando Resort. When guests at the Hard Rock Hotel feel the urge to "raid the 'fridge," they head to The Kitchen for a variety of New American cuisine, and comfort food with a rock 'n' roll attitude. We can not wait to exceed your expectations on your next stay

Upon walking to our room after check-in, I knew I would not be staying. Hotel is in very worn and hallways have a bad, moldy smell. They are in the process of renovating, but I would wait! Not for me at this time! We transferred to the Portofino Bay and thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Thank you for your feedback regarding your visit to the Hard Rock Hotel. We are disheartened that you felt the Hard Rock Hotel was not up to standard. We are having some "work" done on and off this year so that we can always look our best, like any rock star would. I hope you will choose to return to the Hard Rock Hotel and expereince what it is like to vacation like rock royalty on your next visit to Orlando.

Excellent experience! I have visited Florida 21 times and have stayed at the Hard Rock the last twice and just wish I had tried it earlier!! It simply has everything going for it and caters for all ages. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone and will definitely return next year!!
