Always wonderful atmosphere. The kitchen has the best food. The hotel is very close to the parks. Very high energy staff to match the ambiance of the hotel. The Velvet sessions are awesome. Returning next year.

Wow what a trip! What didn't we do? We stayed club level, I caught Bret Michaels at velvet sessions and we enjoyed Halloween horror nights and a birthday dinner at The Palm. Everything was outstanding! I don't have a single thing to complain about.

The Hotel did not live up to its name. Good location to universal studios and city walk but did not feel the hotel provided the rock experience you would expect. The hotel lobby was always clean and had a vibe. However walking to your rooms the corridors were cold and the rooms cleanliness were not up to a four star...
