The Hard Rock is the best hotel to stay in if you want super comfort, quality & prime location. It only took us 5 mins to walk to Universal Studios and the fast pass that is included in your stay worked out cheaper than the room rate. Our longest que time Mid August with the fast pass was 15 minutes...

This was our 2nd stay at the Hard Rock at Universal. We have stayed also at Royal Pacific and the Portofino, so we have a good handle on the good and bad with each resort.

If you are going to visit Universal Studios, the Hard Rock is the place to stay. It's young, energetic, fun, and fantastic. The room was awesome, the beds totally comfortable (loved the pillows) and it's just a boat ride away from so many good restaurants and fun places to go - even if you don't go see Harry Potter. I...
