At Hard Rock Cafe steak had considerable gristle butter knife was sharper than the steak knife. Also, asked for salad to come out before meal came with meal and comment sorry bout that, pathetic. Bed sheets torn desk lamp not working. Check room personnel incompetent. When departing asked for a cart to take 3 suitcases and 3 large bags to car, went to bathroom when I returned no cart and no check room personnel to assist. I paid $8000.00 for the three days there will never make that mistake again. Disney here I come. Read less

I was extremely Disappointed in our last trip. This was a first for my sister but 2nd time staying for me. Unfortunately it didn't meet expectations and was very overpriced for what we received. We were there for the Orlando informer meetup. Our tower was the furthest from everyone else and not very clean. When walking the waterway to and from the park we kept coming across rats which was kinda freaky and unexpected. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the hotel but the cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired.

We stayed 3 nights here and were traveling with another family. Nearly all positive experiences with staff, including their assistance with search for (onsite) cupcakes/cake for birthday celebration for one of the family members. They were kind enough to allow use of restaurant’s plates and forks as well. The room was comfortable and mostly clean. The grout needs to be cleaned in parts of the bathroom. It would be nice to have additional hooks or similar to hang wet towels for those that wish to reuse. As someone else pointed out, the shower floor can be slippery so use caution. For the room price, I expected more plentiful hotel toiletries. A small microwave should also be standard and not an additional fee. This goes for the self parking daily fee as well. I understand paying additional for valet parking but not for self parking at this room price point. Food and drink prices are what you expect for Universal Orlando hotel. Pool (heated) and hot tubs were nice. Multiple lifeguards on duty. The major plus for this hotel is the included express passes for each member in your party. It made for a much more pleasant experience in the park as we were able to get on every ride we wanted to ride and never waited more than about 25 minutes. Suggest waking up very early though to get a head start on going through security and then get in line to wait for the park to open, especially on a peak day. If you wait, you will be in for a very long wait to get through security (even from the walking path from the hotel to the park which wasn’t always fully staffed so took way too long sometimes) and really long wait after that to get into the park. Overall I would likely recommend this hotel (mainly for the included express passes - worth it - though that could be said for the others that include it as well). Read less

We were greeted by so many smiling faces. Every single employee was helpful and kind. My biggest complaint was the same as any resort. The prices for food and drinks was astronomical. I recommend making bottled water affordable because it’s something everyone needs. The other problem we faced was traveling as a family of 4, the toilet is in the same area as the shower. I haven’t seen that in a hotel in a long time. It’s so much easier if they are separated. Read less
