The Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando Resort is one of my favorite resorts in the Orlando area. It’s the closest resort to the Universal Orlando theme parks, pills including the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter. You’re just a short walk away from the theme parks.
The resort itself has great theming with lots of rock and roll memorabilia and themed dining experiences for your vacation. You may even catch a concert or two while you’re visiting.
The Palm Restaurant and The Kitchen are my favorites, viagra sale but the other dining options are excellent
, prostate as well. You also have the Velvet Bar and Velvet Sessions where you can have drink and oftentimes, catch a concert.
The Hard Rock Hotel pool is amazing! On our last visit, we spent hours poolside just relaxing, enjoying the pool, the music, the water slide, and the food. Not to mention the beach and entertainment — we had a live DJ for most of the afternoon and then Harry Potter movies on a big screen as it got dark.
All of Universal’s resorts have earned the 4 diamond recognition from AAA. The AAA Diamond rating system is the most recognized hotel rating program in America. Here’s more from AAA about what a 4 Diamond rating means for the Hard Rock Hotel.
“These establishments are upscale in all areas. Accommodations are progressively more refined and stylish. The physical attributes reflect an obvious enhanced level of quality throughout. The fundamental hallmarks at this level include an extensive array of amenities combined with a high degree of hospitality, service, and attention to detail.”
Not even all of Disney’s Deluxe Resorts have this designation! It’s a big deal and it shows through in the Hard Rock Hotel rooms and amenities.

Another fantastic benefit of staying at one of the three Universal Orlando Resorts (the best benefit, as far as I’m concerned) is the free Express Passes with your stay. On the busier days of the year, this one benefit could cost more than your hotel room for a family of 4!!! In fact, when we stayed this past spring, it would have cost more money to buy the Express Passes for our family that it cost per night at the Hard Rock Hotel!
The Hard Rock Hotel is considered the “moderate” property of the three Universal Orlando Resorts. The room size is right in the middle of the Royal Pacific and Portofino Bay. I would rather stay here than Portofino for many reasons. (1) The room size is comparable
, but the price is typically much less, (2) It’s a tower style resort vs. the spread layout of the Portofino, so you don’t have to go as far within the resort to use an amenity, and (3) Hard Rock Hotel is just so close to the parks that it makes life so easy on your family vacation.
Be sure to check out the Hard Rock Hotel for your next Orlando vacation, especially if you’re planning to spend a lot of time at the Universal Orlando theme parks.
