Hard Rock Hotel Orlando

Hard Rock Hotel Orlando California-style mission architecture and impressive assortment of rock memorabilia - direct from the collection of Hard Rock Café International. One of the many unique features of Hard Rock Hotel is boasting one of Orlando's largest heated outdoor swimming pools - including a zero-entry sand beach, 240ft slide, and 12 underwater speakers.

Hard Rock Hotel Orlando

The heart of rock n' roll beats at the 650-room Hard Rock Hotel. The vibes can be heard around the grounds, even underwater at the pool, with music of the world's most popular artists. Dining at Hard Rock keeps visitors' bodies moving, including at the Palm Restaurant, a steakhouse straight from New York, known for its prime beef cuts and lobster; and in the Sunset Grill, an all-day eating option with an open exhibition kitchen. For after-dinner drinks, the Lobby Lounge or Velvet Bar can smooth out the evening. Hard Rock Hotel also has more than 15,000 square-feet of meeting space.

The AAA Four Diamond Hard Rock Hotel Orlando opened in January 2001 and covers 14 acres at Universal Orlando. Rooms and suites, including the King, Club and Graceland Suites, the Hospitality Parlor and 14 Kid's suites, are available. Each has three black and white pieces of art from the Hard Rock Café private archives and a selection of rock star wake-up calls from rockers like James Brown, N'sync and Dee Snider. The Hard Rock Hotel was designed as if it was formerly the estate of a flamboyant rock star who might have acquired a collection on his decades of "road trips." The phantom rock star's deep pockets and evolving taste has assembled the world's most valuable rock n' roll memorabilia collection worth more than $31 million.

The excitement doesn't stop at this "Hotel California" inspired, mission style property. With a 260-foot water slide, "Little Rock" pool for youngsters, and poolside cocktails, the Hard Rock Beach Club invites guests to splash to music while surrounded by Malibu-esque cliffs overlooking a white sand beach and Pacific blue water. Just beyond the cliffs are CityWalk's Hard Rock Café and Hard Rock Live concert venue.

Royal Pacific Resort

Royal Pacific Resort vividly recreates a tropical island paradise boasting the largest outdoor lagoon pool in Orlando, as well as the largest and most exotic Orchid Court Garden in North America.

Universal's Royal Pacific Resort

At Royal Pacific Resort, guests are transported to the isles of the South Pacific in minutes and without traveling halfway around the world. The 53-acre retreat-style property opened in June 2002 and is the newest site at Universal Orlando. When approaching the resort, guests pass through a towering bamboo forest and authentic Kul-Kul tower -- a Balinese structure used to celebrate special occasions. Once guests cross a bamboo bridge, they enter the lobby, surrounding an open-air Orchid Court - a space filled with hundreds of brilliantly colored orchids, exotically shaped palm trees, hand-carved stone statues and hand-painted panels -- all from remote island villages. This court, though, is only the introduction to more than 58,000 shrubs and 2,500 trees on site.

Royal Pacific Resort offerings include 1,000 luxury rooms and suites, with Club Floor rooms and Club Lounge and Executive, Hospitality, Governors and Presidential Suites. Guests can dine at several areas on the property, including: Emeril's Tchoup Chop, a fine-dining South Pacific culinary experience from Chef Emeril Lagasse just opened in January, 2003, Islands Dining Room, Jake's American Bar, Bula Bar & Grille and Orchid Court Lounge.

The resort has its own massive Lagoon pool complete with its own island. The pool is Orlando's largest at 12,000 square feet and the recreation area has a 4,000 square-foot interactive play area, shops and business center. Additionally, the resort has nearly 80,000 square-feet of meeting space and 25,000 square-feet of outdoor space that is ideal for theme events. Rates begin at $159 a night and vary depending on season.
