Family Getaway

We stayed on the 7th floor. The staff was excellent and very friendly. We were hesitant to spend the extra money, but found it to be well worth it!

Family get away

Only stayed so we could get a different experience then staying at the other Lowes Hotel. We love the other two, but this one was a bit of a let down with the self parking at which you do have to pay for each night of your stay. Hotel ok, but the parking was horrible.

Universal trip

Hotel room and amenities at the Hard Rock are great. The location is perfect for getting to and from Universal. Although a bit pricey, I think the location and included express passes with theme park ticket purchase make it worth the extra cost.

Amazing Hotel Experience!

Absolutely amazing! From the moment you check-in to the moment you check-out you are completely surrounded by the hip, happening, luxurious energy that is Hard Rock Hotel and Universal Orlando. The room was always nice and neat and the service was excellent for anything my family asked for. Hard Rock Hotel is also the closest resort to the Universal Orlando theme parks! I have taken many trips to Universal Orlando and stayed at all of the resorts and I continue coming back to the Hard Rock Hotel!

Fun, Funky Hotel

The hotel has a lot of character and is a lot of fun. The bedrooms are totally remodeled and are vibrate and full of color. I especially like the mirror with all the celebrity heights on it. I would definitely stay again.

Most of the restaurants at Citywalk do not take reservations but the hotel concierge can call ahead for you. Just be aware that not all restaurants offer this service.
