You can see it when driving up the main Universal boulevard - what a beautiful hotel - it looks the part - very Rock n Roll - Chateau Marmont - and the inside and the pool - marvellous! Hard Rock Hotels are ace!

Reviewed 11 January 2016 via mobile

For the cost of this place I expect better. The big plus is how convenient it is to theme parks, very easy to access. Even though we paid more for larger suite, room was still cramped, bathroom is very small and beds are very uncomfortable. I was very annoyed when on two days I told cleaning staff right outside our...

Very, very nice hotel - good deal for those visiting Universal Studios. Beautiful pool, very clean. I like rock music as much as the next person, but found I had to really, really search to find a place to take a cell phone call where I could hear over the music - my only real complaint.

Hard Rock Hotel was chosen for our weekend stay not as my 1st choice, but for my 3 teen daughters as a surprise celebration.

Just got back from a one night stay at the Hard Rock. I took my sister, niece and nephew (both 5) for their Christmas gift. Everyone loved the hotel. Worth every penny to stay on-site, especially for the Express Passes. We checked in around 10am so we could get our Express Passes and head to Universal for the day. The...

We had a rough start at this property with some confusion on check in but the assistant front desk manager did an amazing job trying to compensate. This is a very big hotel with a slight Vegas feel to it. We initially booked a family suite but switched to two regular interconnecting rooms which were less expensive and much more...

Clean grand entrance. Playing obviously rock and pop hits of various decades. Very friendly and helpful staff in all amenities. Athe Palm restaurant I would not recommend, surely get better steak outside the "chain concept". If I would be back to Universal stuios I take this hotel.

“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.”
