07 Dec Vacationing at Universal’s Orlando Hard Rock Hotel
If vacationing like a rockstar piques your interest, then Universal’s Orlando Hard Rock Hotel might be your next vacation destination! The resort offers luxury accommodations with distinct rock and roll theming throughout, from the moment you enter the lobby and smell the “essence” of a rockstar, to your hallway stroll which takes you past some incredible rock n’ roll memorabilia, such as one of John Lennon’s suits or even Elvis’ pajamas.
The resort offers several types of rooms and suites, all of which are adorned with musical touches and luxury appointed features that will not disappoint. The mirrors in the rooms even show notches of heights for some of your favorite celebrities like Justin Timberlake or even little Shirley Temple. The resort also offers club level rooms which include continental breakfast, soda and water throughout the day, and then an evening reception featuring appetizers, smaller entrees, like chicken or hot dogs, beer and wine, and desserts.
In addition to the fabulous rooms, the resort boasts an array of unique experiences you can only find at Hard Rock. On the last Thursday of every month, from January to October, Hard Rock showcases live music from legendary and upcoming artist alike, called “Velvet Sessions.” Here you’ll witness up close and personal concerts while enjoying some finger foods and cocktails. Past performers include Foreigner, Bret Michaels, and Eddie Money to name a few. Note that this is a separately ticketed event.
Even if you can’t make it to “Velvet Sessions,” or the more laid-back acoustic show, “Velvet Unplugged,” which is held several times a year, you can still be a part of the musical experience. The Discover the Sound of Your Stay Program allows you to borrow one of 20 Fender guitars on-site so you can try your hand at a little bit of your own rock n’ roll stardom.
The music doesn’t stop there as their 12,000- square-foot pool, shaped like a guitar, features an underwater sound system. You definitely won’t miss out on any of the fun while taking a swim! In addition to the music, it also has a 260-foot waterslide, two hot tubs, real sand beach, and a volleyball court. And for the kids, there’s also ping pong tournaments, pool basketball, hula hoop contests, and arts and crafts.
As an added bonus to all the unique experiences at Hard Rock, your stay also includes Express Passes to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure (separate admission required), early park admission to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and priority seating at on-site restaurants. With all these perks included with your stay, you have no reason not to vacation like a rockstar! Contact your Me and The Mouse Travel Specialist today to start your booking.
