I highly recommend the Hard Rock Hotel. Everything was fantastic. Everyone was helpful, and the entire facility is awesome. Even walking down the halls to return to my room was an adventure, with all of the music and rock exhibits along the way. If you haven't stayed at a Hard Rock before, you have to experience it at least once.

Loved this hotel! Everyone was so nice! Everything was spotless! I have a daughter in a wheelchair and people couldn't be nicer! Always asking if they do anything or get us anything! Great hotel! From check in to check out was great!

Excellent all around. Business meeting, excellent facilities, excellent staff. Food was tremendous, the atmosphere and the vibe of the hotel were great. Great place to bring a family, there was a lot for the whole family to do.

What a find! If you're planning a visit to Universal's Orlando theme parks, all you need to know is that your booking includes fast-pass access to nearly all the rides in both parks, normally costing around $80 a head a day. The only rides not included are the two major Harry Potter rides. This single fact makes the price of...

We loved our 3 night stay here, it is SO close to Universal the location is fantastic. We had two days to go around Universal and the fast track you get included in the room rate is so worth it, we skipped a lot of queueing! The pool is fab, the pool bar/restaurant was great. It was easy walking distance...

Thank you for the rockin' response. With the Universal Unlimited Express Passes, and early admission to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, everyone is sure to enjoy their favorite attractions again and again. Our close proximity absolutely cannot be beat! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon for another vacation fit for a Rock Star. Rock On!

Don't get me wrong, this hotel is fantastic and there is no point me highlighting all that is great about this hotel, as it has all been said before, but when we were there for 4 nights we observed a few flaws. The first point I would like to make are the pool servers, some are a lot better than...

We had a standard queen room and it was just huge! I loved the customer service here, the pool area, and just the overall vibe. Being so close to everything at universal and having the express pass was icing on the cake. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend to anyone going to universal.

We loved this hotel. Traveled with teenage/pre-teen children and they are still talking about what a great time we had! Clean, kind wait staff, accommodating. Pool area perfect for teens, and we happened to catch Jimmy Fallon filming a promo for his new ride at the pool one afternoon so that was just the coolest for our kids! Can't beat...

The quality and size of the room and the hotel is that of a 4-star hotel in any major city. The lobby is quite subdued compared to some other hotels in the Hard Rock chain, as are the rooms. The in-room television does feature dedicated music video channels and a guitar lesson channel and the hotel allows guests to check...
