We stayed for 6 days from Dec. 29th and spent NY Eve at the hotel/Kitchen which was fantastic. We are a family of 5 with 2 young kids (7&9), and a teen (14). I booked the cheapest room at the hotel- partial views, 5th floor,which faced the parking lot- unexpected bonus it had views of the fireworks from Universal every...

Easily the best on property hotel for Universal Orlando!!!! Room key is your fast pass. Music was the Bomb. Beds are comfortable. Within Walking distance to Universal parks and City Walk. Rock Royalty floor prob not worth it. Staff is great. The Palm food was on point. The Music and Atmosphere Great!!! Yes I repeated myself. Rock On!!!

This is by far the closest hotel to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. The rooms are clean, the staff is helpful, the pool is top notch, and the benefits of staying on-site at Universal is the number one reason to stay here. Never waited in one line! Came for the Halloween Horror Nights, can't wait to go back.

Overall we had a wonderful trip. Our family had 2 rooms - one room with one adult and one child on the Royalty floor and one with two adults and two children in a garden view room. Overall the rooms are very overpriced for what you get. They are small and although the price is comparable to other high end...

The service - oh, the service! That's the difference between a hotel and a resort. The Hard Rock Hotel was a resort!

We had a nice experience in this hotel. Rooms are clean and spacious! It has a big and nice swimming pool. Three restaurants and a super nice bar called Velvet. The best thing is that you can arrived one hour earlier in the parks and gets express passes to the attractions.

Stayed in a club level double queen room that was roomy enough for 2 adults and 2 teenagers for 4 days. Enjoyed the evening snacks but did not sample lunch because we were in the park. The pool was quite enjoyable as well.

“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.”
