During our recent trip to Universal Orlando, we stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel resort. Staying on property has so many advantages — and the hotel was gorgeous!
Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando Resort
Our room was gorgeous and bright. Plenty of room for a family. And the rock ‘n’ roll decor throughout the hotel is so fun.
We had some fun surprises waiting for us after we checked in. The Scream strawberries were my favorite!
Hard Rock Hotel boasts a gorgeous pool with amenities that are perfect for families or adults just wanting to get away. We spent one morning just lounging by the pool and it was glorious.
The resort is just a short walk from Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme parks. There is even a complimentary water taxi to the parks and Universal CityWalk.
And as a premier Universal Orlando resort, Hard Rock Hotel guests receive a Universal Express Unlimited Ride pass, early admission to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and other awesome benefits.
Plus, Hard Rock Hotel has an *amazing* breakfast buffet that is the perfect way to fuel up before a day in the parks!
I find that staying on site is definitely the way to go, especially when you plan on doing lots of walking at theme parks. The amenities and extras that are available only to hotel guests definitely make it worth it.
After our time at Halloween Horror Nights 25, it was a relief to make it back to my comfy bed just a short walk from the park. My feet were exhausted, and I was so glad that we stayed on property!
We enjoyed our stay so much, I highly recommend Hard Rock Hotel!
