Hard Rock Hotel Orlando

The Hard Rock Hotel Orlando is located within the grounds of Universal Studios Orlando, making it one of Florida’s most unique places to stay. Many visitors to Universal Studios Orlando choose to stay here not only because of its first-class services and amenities, but also because of the park benefits. Hard Rock guests are granted early park admission and can skip many of the regular park lines. There are complimentary hotel shuttles to and from the park, as well as priority seating at many park restaurants.

The perks of the hotel extend beyond the park, as well.
