Wonderful Family Vaca at the Hard Rock Universal Orlando

Roanoke, Virginia

We love this hotel. Wonderful service, excellent food, super clean and updated room, and a fun, kid-friendly pool experience. The fast passes to Universal are a huge bonus to what is a great experience. Our only regret is not purchasing a larger room as the Queen beds do feel snug for a family of 5. The walk to Universal is a breeze and makes the to and from a super personal experience. We will definitely stay here again!

Great location to Universal Studios and Island of Adventure

New Paltz

We stayed three days and two nights at Hard Rock Hotel on the club level, seventh floor. All of the staff were very nice and accommodating. We arrived around 9:30 am and checked in with the front desk and they stored our bags while we went to the parks for the day...our room was ready around 2 pm...the room with two queen beds had a sitting area with two chairs and two additional chairs at the desk area. There is a flat screen tv, coffee maker, small fridge, safe, two robes and an umbrella to during your stay. The club level gives you access to a light breakfast, think Hampton Inn, as well as snacks at noon and beverages and appetizers in the early evening. It was great to get coffee and a bagel with cream cheese first thing in the am without having to go to a restaurant and the same was true in the evening..nice to get a glass of wine and a beer without running around...very relaxing...the water taxi which takes you to City Walk, next to Universal and Islands of Adventure, is literally right out the door. We ate twice at the Kitchen (great fried calamari, Mac and cheese, flatbread pizza) and really enjoyed that it was right on the property and we did not have to run around after spending the day walking at the theme parks. We had zero complaints about any of the staff, front desk, bell hop, concierge, housekeeping were all friendly and helpful ..as they should be at this price point.
