If you’re planning a stay at Universal Orlando Resort later this spring and through the summer, you might want to take note of some major changes happening at a popular hotel.
We previously reported that the Hard Rock Hotel, one of Universal Orlando Resort’s favorite hotels, is undergoing major renovations to its exterior building. The hotel has scaffolding around part of its exterior and will undertake the project section by section, but still recognized on its website that the construction could impact the stay of the Guests who are planning a stay soon.
We are making improvements to the exterior of the building that are part of our commitment to amplifying the product we offer to you, the guest. The work will be done section by section and we will work hard to minimize the impact on your stay at Hard Rock Hotel.
The @bioreconstruct Twitter account recently posted a photo of the work in progress at the Hard Rock Hotel and as you can see the crane activity is now underway.

The Hard Rock Hotel recently emailed guests who had reservations for the spring and announced that The Kitchen, one of its popular restaurants, would also be closing for renovations.
The email reads:
Legendary rock stars are constantly evolving, and so is the Hard Rock Hotel®. We’d like to let you know of some ongoing upgrades if you visit The Hard Rock Hotel® at Universal Orlando. We will replace the roof of the hotel, renovate and paint the exterior of the hotel. Work will be limited to one section at a time and will take place from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Kitchen restaurant will also undergo renovations starting April 18. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will still be regularly served rock star style at other locations in the hotel.
The Kitchen is the Hard Rock Hotel’s most popular restaurant and offers a range of dishes that guests can enjoy for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
