The best thing about this hotel is the location and the express pass. The pool is great after a full day walking around universal and they have a nice brunch on Sundays.
Location is great, the external site still looks like hotel California ,love the express pass for the parks, pool still good for floating in, all dining options are good though pricing a little heavy.
The move away from the classic Hard Rock look to a more corporate cut n paste generic decor is so marked, i doubt ill stay again. While the staff were great the whole vibe of the hotel is changing giving it a less welcoming vibe. Dont like the compulsory 18% gratuity being added, thats just a sales tax
Location - walking distance to the universal studios entrance - and express pass offered by the hotel
Room decor - kids were a bit deceived, we expected it to be more theme related but it was slightly "unspectacular"
Great location for City Walk and the Universal Parks. Bar & pool area perfect for chilling out.
Very fresh, looks new and great location
May be noisy for someone trying to relax
