This was our fourth visit to the Hard Rock Hotel and it never disappoints us. The rooms (since they have been refurbished) are lovely and also clean. We make good use of the pool and the staff are so friendly especially Robert, who looked after so well and remembers us each time we have stayed. We cannot praise him highly...

Without a doubt the best Hotel we've ever stayed in. Beautifully laid out, great staff - we were given a free upgrade which was a lovely surprise. Great location, just minutes walk from the Universal Theme Parks and Citywalk. The Express Passes are a fantastic bonus and one of the main reasons we decided to stay here. Beautiful pool and...

Stayed on the 7th Floor Rock Royalty. All staff are extremely friendly and helpful and seem genuinely pleased to help make your stay there the best it can be. Rock Royalty Suite is a nice touch, helping to make it even better value. Breakfast is fine, quite a good choice of continental fayre, and a hot porridge every day. Snacks...

We've just returned from a fantastic week in Orlando and stayed at Hard Rock Hotel for 7 nights on the Rock Royalty level. Hard Rock was the perfect location for both Universal (walking distance), Disney (driving distance) and of course the shopping malls. The Rock Royalty rooms we're spacious enough for a family of 3, with 2 queen size beds,...

I just came back from a four night stay at the Hard Rock Orland. This place was beautiful from the moment we pulled up and saw the guitar fountain, the illuminated clock on the floor in the entry, and the Pinktober bed lit in pink. The fragrance in the lobby was great also. We were pleasantly surprises to see how...

Stayed here for a long weekend with my family and had a great stay. The hotel is first-rate, the rooms are very nice, and the location near Universal Studios is unbeatable. Be sure to get your Express Passes before going to the park - it's a great time saver. We'll be back the next time we visit Universal Studios.

The renovated rooms are fantastic. The hotel is a little pricey when compared to some of Universal's other offerings but if you are looking for a great home base for Universal Studios it doesn't get any better.

"Theme park hotel" does not do The Hard Rock justice.
