Upgrade Hard Rock RoomUniversal Orlando: Should I upgrade Hard Rock room?
From Candice RoseI am going to Universal Studios (Staying at Hard Rock) in November 2010. I was just wondering if it is worth upgrading room to the "Concierge room"? Will cost about $136 more a night (for 2 people) I know without "upgrade" workout room would cost $10 a day (MAY not use everyday) Continential breakfest is included with upgrade along with evening hors d'oevres, beer & wine each night, turndown services plus few more. Has anyone done this "upgrade before? And would it be worth it? Thanks

From Thomas GrimmeIt's definitely worth it but if your budgeting then no. I look at it like this, you are not in your room but only to sleep so to me it doesn't make sense. I like to spend that extra money at the parks and at city walk. But like I said it is worth it to be treated like an upper class citizen for a few days. Yes the breakfast and drinks are nice but you can't eat $100+ worth of breakfast. Just my opinion. Enjoy.

From Candice RoseI think we (Husband and I..NO kids) decided not to do this..But I got another question where (Parks or hotel) can we get breakfest? Staying at Hard Rock. I can't seem to find this info online.

Thanks for all your help
From TH CreativeI've visited the concierge level VIP lounge. It's really quite nice. If you have the money, I say yes.

From Rob PI know that if money was no object then the extras on offer make the stay more luxurious.

I also have to agree with Thomas and say that, if was being logical and practical, I'd rather have that extra cash to spend on things of my choice at the Parks or CityWalk.
But it's nice to be irrational and push the boat out once in a while and as it's only 2 nights it'd be an experience you'll never forget.
We were lucky enough once to spend 5 nights at the Grand Flo which cost us more than the previous 2 weeks we'd spent in the other hotels we'd stayed in. But we have those memories now and they're priceless.
If you can afford it then go for it and have a ball.
