The Hard Rock Hotel Universal Orlando, the name pretty much says it all. Most people have eaten at a Hard Rock Restaurant and know that the theme is geared to showcase all of the prime Rock n’ Roll Musicians of all time, old and new. As you walk through the main entrance, you immediately notice all of the memorabilia that instantly starts you thinking of all the songs that you love from each artist. This theme is seen throughout the resort and never grows old, especially if you have a heart for music.

Orlando Hard Rock Hotel Reviews


We loved how close the Hard Rock Hotel was from Universal Orlando. Some days we walked to the parks which was about 5 minutes but the water taxi was fun as well. Many guests feel that the rooms are comfortable and the word "spotless" is used to describe their stay. The kids really got a kick out of the underwater music and also enjoyed the long water slide.

Guests staying at the Hard Rock Hotel did not enjoy it as much if they were not visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks for the most part. Some also did not like the costs with the parking.

Pool & Water Slide

The pool area is one of the best that the Universal Resorts have to offer. As you walk up to this large pool area filled with lounge chairs all around you will see that this is a great place for the kids and the adults alike. There is ample seating for the entire family but you will want to get there early enough to find just the right spot to fit your family needs. As you would expect, music is pumped through the entire area and this pool is unique because they even have an underwater speaker system. Where else would you have the opportunity to experience something like this. The kids are going to love the huge 260 foot Twisty Water Slide and the younger ones will have a great time splashing in the shallow area of the pool that offers Zero-Entry access for the parents peace of mind. There is a lot more to experience and you will want to take a look at the pool section to find out everything that is available for the family.

Dining and Things to do

Everything at this resort is done first class and the dining and other amenities are fantastic. The staff is here to help with any needs that you might have. Some of the other things that you will find is a large arcade room including a number of pool tables to play some billiards with your friends. For a full list, take a look at the Amenities page.
