Rock 'n' roll themed resort

It’s the perfect mix of funk and just plain fun. It’s classy, yet totally casual. Lively, yet laid back. It’s the coolest hotel in town, and you’ll feel like you just stepped off the stage, surrounded with the music, style, and bold attitude of the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle.

Fun hotel but pretty expensive for the area

Germantown, Maryland

After 2 nights at an inexpensive hotel nearby, I splurged for 1 night at the Hard Rock Hotel. I took advantage of the Universal Express Pass both the day of arrival and departure which was a huge bonus. My room was comfortable and very nice. The staff were very nice and helpful. My one complaint was that the only way to enter the hotel from the self-parking lot was to climb 3 flights of stairs. There was a phone dangling from the wall to call for a bellman to come get luggage, but I did not want to wait around so carried my bag up on arrival and down on departure. I had stopped at the entrance on my way in for directions to self-parking and the bellman could have mentioned to drop off my bags while there, but did not. I guess they want everyone to valet park for the extra charge. The pool is currently undergoing renovations so unavailable for use. The boat service to Universal City Walk is a nice plus although the walking path is also nice.

Standards have plummited

Calgary, Canada

Stayed on the Rock Royalty Level. Poor service throughout the hotel, cheap food for Hors D'oeuvres, small crappy lounge. Plastic cutlery. No standard of dress so if you want to wear you pyjamas to dinner stay here.
