Loved the lobby! Pool looked nice but we didn’t get chance to swim. The decor in the vanity area was cool.
Two double beds which is not good with two kids who hate sharing. One bed had no bedside tables. Nothing in fridge. Awful view. V expensive for a standard room. On check in they kept saying they’d text us room details but, despite explaining I could only use WiFi over here, it didn’t sink in and we received no code. At the end of our day we had to go back to lobby to find out where to sleep and at that point were given badges etc that could have helped in our first day. Our bags weren’t in our room either so we had to wait for the bell hop to get ready for bed which was a bit of a downer by that stage of the day when you NEED that cuddly duck in your luggage!!
Everything! The people that work there were top notch!
Loved everything. The only thing I would suggest is that the music that is played in the lobby be turned down a smidge. This hotel really is great!
The fact it was close to universal
Room was a tad dated and needed a regub
Live band in lobby
Slide not being open
We had breakfast in the Club room which is on the Club floor level - great for a quick bite to eat and bottled water before hitting the parks! At other times of the day you could use the Club room for a snack and drinks which was great. The pool bar and cafe was excellent. All the staff we encountered were really helpful and friendly. The location is just fantastic - being able to walk to the park was so convenient.
Whilst initially it was fun to have very loud music blaring everywhere (it is the Hard Rock after all!) a little respite from it would have been great such as in the adults-only bar.
