Rooms The room and hallway carpets looked a bit weathered though nice and clean. The view from our window was to a side courtyard. Decorated in muted earth tones, it was blissfully quiet inside the room. In addition to two large beds, there was a desk (including a two-line speakerphone and dataport), one comfortable chair and wet bar, including a minibar. The closet included a safe. The room included a CD player.
Pool And-Or Beach The pool area was attractive, with cabanas, underwater music, jacuzziand great landscaping. There is an artificial sand beach with volleyball and waterslide.
Though it was not available when we visited the Hard Rock, not even on the Club floor, currently Wayport High speed Internet access is available in all rooms
Other It was nice to have a CD player in the room; even if it meant walking all the way to the Club floor room to borrow CD’s. A family oriented hotel, offering comfort and luxury with a rock and roll theme. There wasconstant rock music everywhere and common areas were bustling with activity. It was one of my more pleasant stays in Orlando. For us as tourists and visitors, the quick access to the nearby Disney area made it convenient and complimentary water taxis (and buses) offered an alternative when we preferred to ride in comfort instead of walking (10 minutes). They also kept the Loews Orlando hotels (Hard Rock, Portofino and Royal Pacific) connected. Wonderful benefits we did not have time for was Universal Express preferred access to theme rides; and the room key special charging privileges, which allowed guests to buy food and merchandise at Universal properties in Orlando. Pet Friendly property.
Cleanliness Generally good, although the bathroom could have been cleaner when we arrived (dirt on floor).
