#NotRockRoyalty

We arrived at the hotel on August 10th. A quick girls trip! Obviously we stayed at the Hard Rock for the convenient access to the parks. However, just because it’s convenient, doesn’t mean it should be lacking in amenities! First, we booked a room on their Club Level - “Rock Royalty”, however we were treated more like “Rock Rejects”. We were 4 adults and one teenager. I called several times asking if the room would accommodate us and was assured that with a rollout bed, it would. Well guess what - it didn’t! I had great expectations since the bellhop who brought up our luggage told us that “you’re lucky, it’s a great room”. The room was painfully small!The rollout bed had to be placed in front of the 2 queen beds. You can imagine the fun of walking back and forth to the bathroom, the door, etc. And lets talk about the bathroom! I don’t know when the Hard Rock first opened but, it’s definitely the original bathroom. I think it even had the original dust on the vents. It amazes me when I read reviews and NOONE mentions the tiny bathroom! And the air conditioning was non existent! Our first night was so uncomfortable we called and complained. This was the bright spot of the trip. Ken from Maintenance came up to our room, let us vent about how hot the room was and couldn’t have been nicer about it. He brought up 2 fans for us and it did help. More employees in the Customer Service Industry should be like Ken! In closing, I truly believe that the reason this supposed upscale hotel charges what they do is because of the express passes that you get and that is a MAJOR PLUS!!!! However, it would be nice if they did some renovations and be more transparent about how many people can fit in a room. 5 people can not be comfortable in room 7013 ( 4 people barely). I will also say this: I will take Universal over Disney anyday! Universal parks get it right no matter when you go! Disney could learn a lot from them and then maybe it would be more enjoyable going to Disney. From this point on, we are exclusively a Universal family! (Who will book 2 rooms...)

AMAZING👌🏼

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

This was our first visit to a Hard rock hotel and WOW what an amazing hotel. Kyle T on the front desk made us welcome from the moment we walked in which is lovely after a 9 hour flight and carried on being so helpful and friendly throughout our stay. The memorabilia & decor around the hotel is fab, rooms are a lovely size and cleaned daily. The Pool is really nice with underwater speakers, the life guards are so on the ball and are being tested all the time. Our pool waitress Paige was so friendly, helpful and welcoming. Great location being only 5 minutes walk to city walk, universal studios and Islands of adventure & a short free bus service to Volcano bay. Also your room key is your express pass & early access for the parks which was fantastic.. We loved our HRH experience so much we are now visiting HRH in Tenerife for Christmas. Definitely HRH fans now🎤🎧🎼🎢🏝
