“Hard Rock "Rocked"!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

From the minute we walked in the service was outstanding. Upgrades without asking, courteous staff everywhere, amazing amenities. We will definitely stay here everytime we visit Universal. Newly renovated rooms on the Club Level are wonderful! Thank you HRH!!

Wife and I spent the weekend in Orlando while the kids were out of town - this was the wrong hotel. Stayed on the gold floor - when compared to other gold level floors the features here are just not up to par. King size room was average to the small side but clean and comfortable bed. The gold lounge in very simple and almost has a cafeteria feel to it, made breakfast a small bowl of fruit, hard boiled eggs, some cereal, breads was all that was offered. This hotel is best for traveling families with kids.

First time staying close to Universal and at a Hard Rock Hotel.
Excellent service and atmosphere, very efficient with the valet parking and great restaurants on site and within walking distance.

The inhouse steakhouse, Palm Restaurant was a great find, fantastic steaks and cocktails, great kids menu.

The pool area was a little crowded at times but the pool is great, a few annoying LifeGuards not allowing children to enjoy the slides without supervision but generally a great pool.

The rooms were bigger than ones we have stayed at within the Disney hotels, comfortable and clean.

Room Tip: Choose a high room, on VIP level if you can. Free sodas and others items through the day.

Absolutely awesome hotel! Great amenities for kids and adults. Hotel is clean and very fun vibe. Pool area was great. Kids loved the waterslide. Sand areas were very fun for the kids as well. Bar/restaurant staff at the pool were excellent. Will stay there again!

The hotel was lovely, but I think it is over-priced if you are not using the front of the line privilege. The pool area was nice, but not fantastic. The beds were very comfy. This is much more of a family hotel then the typical Hard Rock Hotels.

Stayed June 2014, travelled with friends

Room was fine - two double beds with plenty of room to move around. We booked this for a single night whilst staying elsewhere in Orlando to get the free upgraded fastpasses. This allowed us unlimited queue jumps on most of the rides for both the day we arrived and the day we departed. We also got into the parks a lot earlier than the official opening time and made use of the "hotel to park" boat service. As a bonus we found that the new DiaGon Alley was due to open whilst we were there. This made it a very memorable stay. The hotel staff were really helpful. Definitely worth a return visit if we ever decide to come back to Orlando - I'm sure we will!

The staff is friendly and helpful. We stayed on the club level floor and the people who work in the club room are great. The hotel is clean, safe, and a lot of fun. Walking distance to both parks is excellent. We will stay here again.
