Girl's Extended Weekend

Everything about the hotel was wonderful, except the housekeeping left something to be desired. Our first night we returned to our room around 5pm to find it had not been touched and then when they did clean it they did not replenish the coffee supplies. Another day we found a napkin that had been sitting on the bed wrapped in the sheets when the bed was made. The location is probably better for families with kids since we were awakened on multiple occasions when families returned late from the park or were up early to go to the park. It was great to lounge by the pool and have staff catering to you and checking often to see if you needed anything. Overall, all the staff was friendly and eager to share information to help guide our stay so we would get the most out of our vacation.

everything was wonderful, the only problem I had was when cleaning staff clean rooms they should not close door behind them, door should always stay open when they are cleaning your room. How do you know what they are doing in there with the door closed? Looking through all my stuff?

Great trip! Loved the time there

The hotel was wonderful. Room service staff was friendly and always eager to help make your stay better. The closeness to the city walk and both parks is wonderful as we never had to leave the area! One thing to note, though it did not take away from the experience is that the hardrock has a security system that goes off in every room if something is triggered. It would've been nice to be made aware of this at check in, also, they could limit the repetition of the alarm or space out the announcements. This happened twice in our 4 night stay. They should re-evaluate their system and how it's utilized though it's nice to know they have one in place it might be too sensitive.

fantastic hotel

Check in was 4 pm but our rooms were ready at 1220 . They texted me while we were in Universal Studios that our room was ready. The staff at the front desk were awesome and were so helpful. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Poolside bar/restaurant served excellent food and drinks or you could have food and drink served to you while on your sunbed around the pool. We visited the Kitchen restaurant for a buffet breakfast $20 for adults $5 for kids and they served everything ..... and we tried everything..lol..and we couldn't fault the food . Will definitely visit this hotel again.

This hotel had a great location as it was easy to walk to the Universal theme parks. The only thing that would make this hotel better is balconies but since we weren't in the room much it was okay.

All 4 universal Orlando hotels

I bought a universal annual pass for myself the girlfriend and the kid and took every chance I got to stay on site saving what I thought would be my favorite hotel for last..... It was!!...the hard rock staff was amazing the whole trip. I never came across an unfriendly face in the six nights I was there. The only bad part about my stay was the day I had to leave and come back to reality....... the good part is my fiancée suggested(without me pushing her to) that we should get married here! It was the closest I could get after me mentioning I wanted to get married at Hogwarts. The royal pacific is my second favorite and the cabana bay was AWESOME If you go in the off season and can do without the express passes. I can't wait till my next trip to universal and depending on price differences would love to stay here again. The proximity to the park can't be beat and is great to go back to the room around lunch time when the parks start to fill up to get a shower and relax for a while. Love this place and it inspired me to do my first review!!

Rockin' Family Trip

Upon arrival, the staff were extremely helpful and courteous. They explained locations within the hotel and gave great information about the Universal Theme Parks next door such express pass and early entrance to the parks for those staying at on-site properties. Great location and within a short walking distance to the parks and City Walk made it even better! Can't say enough about this great property and would definitely return.
