If you have a personal wheelchair that you plan to take to Universal Studios, DO NOT STAY AT THE HARD ROCK.

Absolutely everything about this property rocked. The vibe was great. Staff was friendly and it was perfect for getting to the parks and enjoying the universal experience then coming back to your hotel for a totally different but great experience. I can't wait to return.

Great for both families and couples. Really handy for universal parks and early entry if you stay with express upgrade free.City walk 5minutes away and you can access by water taxi free. Excellent restaurants and bars open until 2am and water taxis operate until closure and if you miss them you are only a 5minute walk away

My family recently stayed in the Rock Royalty Suites and I would definitely recommend this type of accommodation. I am a Travel Agent also and Hard Rock exceeded my expectations on this trip. The staff was always courteous and friendly and the hotel was top notch! I would definitely recommend this to anyone traveling to the Orlando area.
