Thank you for taking the time to submit such a rockin’ five-star review. I’m happy to hear our team of Rockstars ensured a seamless check-in and even offered an upgrade into one of our recently renovated rooms.

First time stay at the Hard Rock Universal Orlando. We had a great time. I am a VIP member but did not really 'feel' the VIP experience. Dedicated line, but desk was dealing with customer for a long time. Went through the longer line, but was not really acknowledged as VIP member. Did not get an upgrade unfortunately. In either...

We spent three nights at this lovely hotel. Check in/getting express passes was a breeze. Common areas were just lovely. Our room was large, quiet, and very clean (and having a sink outside the bathroom was very helpful in getting four people ready quickly). The laundry facility was terrific, and we were grateful to have access to it. The pool...

I actually stayed here a few years ago now, when my three boys were younger. The place is just fantastic. I can't speak any higher of a hotel than this one. Every thing is done with quality in mind.

Great hotel with all the fun of music. Can even get a guitar sent to your room to play a few cords on. Location ideal for both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. There is a boat or bus to take you to the City Walk even though it is only a short walk but why not arrive in style...

What better way to vacation like a rock star than to have a guitar sent to your room? After you’re done rockin’ out you are just a short walk or water taxi ride away from all of the excitement of your favorite Hollywood themed attractions. All of that along with our rock star staff creating authentic experiences for you while...

Super cool place,loved every minute, relaxing chilled out all to great music. Pool is very basic and not very deep but somehow it's perfect. Buffet breakfast is fabulous and some freak pool side entertainment including DJ Scooter. I now have a playlist full of rock music. Rooms are large and super cool with Bluetooth sound system.

Hard Rock was a fun place to stay! Our family of 4 loved the Kid's Suite. Well worth the money and Express pass for Universal was included which was great! Non stop music and rock memorabilia was cool. We ate at the Kitchen once for breakfast and dinner. Food was innovative and delish. My one regret was we didn't have...
