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.

Great stay with teens

Close proximity of parks and City Walk can't be beat. Furnishings are high end but still fun. Great pool area for teens. Staff could use minor improvements--not so much as a smile or nod in the hallways and pool waitstaff very slow. Overall, we had a fantastic time and will be back!

Express pass all the way!

We all had a good time staying at the hotel. After along day at the park, it was nice to walk a short trip to relax at the pool. The pool was just ok, I expected a little more out of Hard Rock. Some service staff were excellent, but not all. The lady that checked us didn't explain the express pass to me so I didn't get it till the second day!!!

If you visit Universal stay at the Hard-rock Hotel

Wonderful flight and outstanding weather. Hard Rock Hotel is a short beautifully landscaped walk to both parks and city walk. For a family of four plenty of great places to eat without long waits for a table. We have visited before so to our disappointment the Nascar restaurant was closed. Visit the movie theatre at city walk for a awesome movie experience.

Awesome end to family trip

Hotel room was far cleaner than the room we stayed at in hard rock 7 years ago. Deluxe queen room was perfect size for family of four. Pool and poolside service were great. Pool slide was better than any Disney pool slide. The kitchen food was spot on after a long day at the parks

Wonderful stay at Hard Rock Hotel Orlando. Great rooms, beds and amenities. Can't say enough about the extreme friendliness and service oriented staff. The grounds and pool are awesome.

Awesome Hotel Stay.

The hotel rooms, pool, service and vibe was awesome. I can be picky, and notice little things, but the Hard Rock staff and rooms were perfect. Spacious room. Good in-room stuff (radio, TV, sundries). Bed was firm - but just what I like. Pool is awesome. Close to parks. Universal Studios park Express Pass included. Top to bottom, the hotel just rocked (and the price was better than expected, too).
