we stayed this hotel for few nights, and was great!! Friendly staffs especially during check-in. It is very closed to the Universal Studios and makes it very convenient. Staying here and will provide a fast pass for both parks, which makes it prefect for us!

We had 4 nights booked at the Hard Rock Hotel before travelling down to Port Everglade's to pick up a cruise.

Did not receive room booked. Told I could have a suite for 2000.00 per night. Also saw very poor treatment of a guest by a manager. That is not what I would call her. She was down right nasty to this other guest.

Have been to many Hard Rock Cafes and would rank this number one with Las Vegas a close second. Great artifacts on display and the food was very good. Very close to the venue that was showing the Blue Man Group which made for a great evening. Worth a stop and don't bypass looking around both floors.

We’re delighted to be your choice hotel when visiting the Universal Orlando theme parks! A brief walk or water taxi ride places you right in the heart of the action and thrills. Be sure to check out The Kitchen restaurant to fuel up before a busy day at the parks. We hope to see you again soon. Rock on!

We visited for one week at the end of October when it is half term in the UK.
