One of my favorite family-friendly destinations is Universal Orlando Resort. After all, it’s for people who seek thrills, adventure and entertainment. So, what makes the experience even better? Staying at a hotel where you can literally rock out and be entertained even after the parks close.

You can now experience Hard Rock Hotel’s new Future Rock Star Suites during your Universal Orlando Resort vacation. If you’re a family of music lovers, staying at Hard Rock Hotel is awesome, from the great hotel theme details to the world-class amenities.

Here’s why you should stay in a Hard Rock Hotel Future Rock Star Suite with your family during your next Universal Orlando Resort vacation.

The Luxury of Connecting Rooms

A big part of vacationing is that everyone gets some relaxation. That means it’s time for a little privacy for the grown-ups. With the new Future Rock Star Suites you can have the luxury of connecting rooms.

You don’t have to try to create a little separation in one room any more; you have two rooms to spread out. Some of the suites sleep five with one king bed, two twin beds, and the option of a rollaway. There is plenty of space to hang out together and more than enough space to relax apart.

One of the best parts of the suite is also having an expanded bathroom. While having a standard room with a separate washroom is amazing, you can’t beat the set-up in these suites. It makes getting ready for your day so much easier. Beyond the privacy, having this option really elevates the value in these suites in my books.

You’ll especially love the lounging area where you can all watch TV, have some snacks, and just unwind. You can even order late-night room service and set up right in the sitting area.

Themed for Kids

When traveling with kids, you want them to feel comfortable and have fun, right? Most hotels are focused on the adults, while others are focused on kids but do not hit every age range. With the Hard Rock Hotel’s new Future Rock Star Suites, the design is centered around kids who love music. Each suite has a piece of memorabilia from some of their favorite rock and pop stars.

You can be that much closer to your fave celebrities. This is such a unique aspect for kids who love music!

Plus, the starry sky above their beds that they can look up at is stellar. Pun intended! You can control the lights and dim them or put them into party mode.

Another fun detail was a mirror that listed the heights of different celebs. Your whole family will have a blast comparing your heights to theirs.

Be the Star and Rock Out with Fender

Your kids can step on a stage that changes colors beneath their feet. Then they can perform before a wall of enthusiastic fans with music synced to their TV or Bluetooth headset.

If you plan ahead of time, you can have a Fender guitar sent to your room as part of Hard Rock’s The Sound of Your Stay in-room music amenity program. You can choose from 20 different models, too! There is even a TV channel that gives you guitar lessons, right in your hotel room.

For a guitar enthusiast, this option is priceless. This is such a great option for any guitarist who can’t travel with their own instrument. You just never know when you’ll get the itch to play!

You can also have a Crosley turntable sent to your room through Hard Rock’s WAX in-room music amenity program with your choice of 10 iconic records to experience. How cool and retro is that?

Plenty of Amenities

Hard Rock Hotel will certainly spoil you, especially with amenities. The restaurants make you feel like a rock n’ roll star, there is endless amounts of music memorabilia, and more. On-site restaurants and lounges include The KitchenThe PalmbeachclubEmack & Bolio’s Marketplace, and the Velvet Bar.

Future Rock Star Suites are located on the seventh floor Rock Royalty Level. This allows you to take advantage of the exclusive perks that come along with it. You have access to the Rock Royalty lounge where you can enjoy complimentary continental breakfast and evening horsd’oeuvres, beer and wine for anyone 21 and up, and desserts. This alone is worth it for us as a family. Plus, there are two separate TV viewing areas in the lounge.

You also get personal concierge service. If you want to vacation like a rock star, , this is the way to do it.

Perks of Being a Rock Star 

Of course, staying in any room at the Hard Rock Hotel comes with its own perks. Some of those perks include free Universal Express Unlimited access to Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, so you can skip the regular park lines. That’s a benefit worth up to $129 per person, per day. This helped us make the most of our time at the parks and we were able to go on all the rides we wanted especially the rides in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

On-site hotel guests also receive Early Park Admission. This lets you into the theme parks, including The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Universal’s Volcano Bay one hour before everyone else.

Another convenient thing about staying at Hard Rock Hotel Orlando is the complimentary water taxis and walking paths that lead to Universal Studios Floridaand Universal’s Islands of Adventure. It’s close enough to walk and take in the beauty of the grounds.

After you’ve sampled the restaurants at the Hard Rock Hotel, you can head over to Universal CityWalk and try some new restaurants and take in the entertainment they offer. Make sure to take advantage of the hotel dining shuttle too, with free transportation to and from any of Universal’s on-site hotel restaurants. Pick-up is available in the hotel lobby approximately every 30 minutes from 6–10 pm.

Incredible Customer Service

One of my favorite parts of the Hard Rock Hotel is the customer service. Not only do they offer 24-hour room service, they have top- notch customer service from the moment you walk in. Checking in is a breeze and checking out is just as simple. If you need anything in between, they are sure to accommodate.

The next time you’re headed to Universal Orlando, be sure you book one of the new Hard Rock Hotel Future Rock Star Suites. They have everything the family needs to have a rockin’ and rollin’ good time.

Even after the theme parks close, you’re sure to have a great time at the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando —both you and the kids!
