With some $1 million worth of rock memorabilia on display, from Elvis Presley to Elton John, Madonna, and more, the Hard Rock Hotel is almost as much fun to visit as the local theme parks it serves. Located here are 621 guest rooms and 29 suites, a pool featuring music underwater as well as above the surface, a rock shop, a branch of Mandara Spa, a fitness center, and golf privileges at three area courses.
Dining is a hallmark pleasure at any Hard Rock property, and this hotel is no exception. The famed Palm Restaurant offers premier steak and seafood, while The Kitchen serves up celebrity breakfasts, lunches, and dinners each day of the week. Cocktails are available at the Velvet bar, and poolside snacks are offered at The Beachclub.
The Hard Rock Hotel is also prepared to handle business meetings, with 6,000 square feet of flexible function space and its 24/7 Business Center. Those who wish to purchase tickets for Universal Orlando theme parks or Sea World may do so at the Attraction Ticket Center in the lobby area.
The Hard Rock Hotel is located within the Universal Orlando Resort at 5800 Universal Boulevard, Orlando, Florida 32819-7888. Self parking is available to overnight guests for $15 plus tax per night; valet parking is $22. The hotel is smoke-free and pet friendly; however, pets are not permitted in the pool/lounge or restaurant areas.
