We recently stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel in Orlando. We wanted to be near Universal Studios and to have the great pass to skip all the lines. The Hard Rock Hotel is a great family hotel. The water slide and pool is awesome. My only complaint is their animal policy. I do think it is great to have a hotel that accepts animals BUT...there needs to better rules. We stayed for a weekend and the people next to us had a dog that yipped all night long. We couldn't sleep at all. The hotel manager said they would take care of it but the next night the same thing happened. I think animals should be allowed but if they are disturbing the peace they should be moved. It stinks to spend a lot of money on a hotel and not be able to get a good nights sleep. We will stay again at Hard Rock but if we are by another yippy dog we will insist on a new room on another floor.
