Took the shuttle boat to the park. All staff very polite and friendly and hotel immaculate. Lots of interesting memorabilia to look at. Ate...

This place is incredible! Super comfortable beds, very friendly staff and awesome vibe! As with most high end resort properties, drinks and food was a little pricey but we expected that. Location to parks and attractions could not be beat. They have some for everyone one, kids and adults alike! We will be staying here again!

The Rock Royalty Level was perfect. The individuals working this level treated my family with the upmost respect and consideration. My kids didn't want to leave. A HUGE shout out to Maleka, Xavier, Judy, Bella, and Mariam. They went over and beyond to ensure our happiness. We will be back and will recommend this to all our friends! We spent...

The hotel was classy, clean and a exciting venue. Came back from Universal to find Journey playing live in the hotel. Awesome! Our room was cold, great since it was hot. The free Express Pass made this a great deal. The grounds were beautiful with blooming flowers everywhere. Couldn't ask for a better place with a short 5min walk into...

Stayed at the Hard Rock in early May for 5 nights with my sister in a twin room. The place is stunning and the pool area is the best of any hotel I've ever stayed at. Staff were helpful and our room was lovely - just the right amount of space for two ladies who pack a lot when they...

As soon as you walk in they take a souvenir photo with one of your group holding a guitar! The price of the photo is $20 and you get a 5x7, 4x6 and can download for future use!

We recently stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel Universal Studios Florida. Nice rooms, nice pool, awesome location (2 mins walk to the front gates). Best of all you get the unlimited ride pass to the theme parks. We had 5 mins lines everywhere, meanwhile non-resort guests (90% of Universal Theme Park visitors) waited in lines up to 30 ins, sometimes...

I would highly recommend this hotel for a romantic get away. Service was amazing, hotel was clean, access to the parks cannot be beat, and if you stay on the Rock Level, the free food and drinks are an awesome perk. Don't forget the free fast passes to the parks too, no one likes lines!

“Not worth paying for pool view, save your money as all rooms the same. Elevators are in the middle with very long hallways - choose wisely.”

“We opted for a deluxe room at $414 + tax. Large room with 2 queen beds and a pull down sofa. Grandson said the sofa bed was very comfy.”
