Great hotel with excellent proximity to Universal

Flag review

We chose the Hard Rock Hotel because of its proximity to Universal. Of the three onsite hotels, HRH is the closest. We found that it had great customer service (blow up guitars for kids upon check-in!), fabulous pool and waterslide. Rooms are a decent size, and beds are comfy. I think the rooms are likely due for some refurbishing of soft goods soon. This a very large property, so keep that i n mind if anyone has mobility issues. The scene around the pool is very fun and party like, while still being appropriate for small kids. They supply lifejackets for nonswimmers to use the water slide.

Tips for Families

Staying onsite gives you Express Pass at Universal. Try the ice cream at Emack and Bolio's , on the ground floor of the hotel, near where you exit the hotel to get the water taxi.
