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.

We arrived at the hotel around 1:00pm, and they allowed early check-in. For some reason my credit card wouldn't work, only to find out they were trying to charge me for my whole...

Fantastic room - best beds (and pillows) I've ever had at a hotel! (Rooms are REALLY quiet too!) The location to Universal, the early admission and express pass - simply can't be beat. Friendly staff. Highly recommend.
