Featuring rock n' roll memorabilia throughout, the Hard Rock Hotel offers four bars and restaurants (but not a Hard Rock Cafe - that's down the street at CityWalk - go figure), pool and sits a short walk from Universal Orlando's theme parks. It also features a underwater sound system in one of the largest pools in Orlando.

By far my favorite of the hotels. Me and my family are in love with the pool/waterside. It's in walking distance to the park. That makes it accessible better during him it's a must. - Ryan Keith

The best of the three USF hotels if you have an outgoing family. Rock music is played day and night all over the hotel and the pool is jumping at night with fun activities and outdoor movies. The Beachclub has a great bar and the food is excellent. We will be staying here again in Summer 2012. You can also walk to the front gate of Universal Studios in less time than it takes to ride the water taxi. Easily the best hotel in terms of proximity to the parks and CityWalk. You will find yourself more likely to hit the parks on a whim or late night because of it's centralized location. - N B

An absolute must every year during hhn! - Fred Koury

This hotel is amazing, and so beneficial! My family and I have stayed there twice already, and have had a blast every time. We are even staying again in a week!! But like others have said the only draw back, would have to be paying 15 dollars a day to park? seriously? why does the hotel make you pay for parking when your staying in their rooms for 300 dollars a night!? But other then that, it's an amazing stay that everyone should experience! - Allison Bazzle

9-The Hotel itself is awesome! The pool is one of the coolest at a hotel I have ever stayed at. The lobby area is really cool and the staff was helpful and friendly. The parks are just a few hundred yards from the hotel, and the best part is the express passes you get with the room. The only reason I didnt give it a 10 is that the rooms are pretty small and plain for the amount of money it cost to stay here. - Brent Moody
