Is this a special rate or just the super saver? I've not had any luck getting prices close to everyone...did you book through Universal or through Loews?

My dates are May 30-Jun 6....

Hard Rock is available for $163/night for May 30- June 6 through www.loewshotels.com with the 7 for 4 promotion. The rate is actually $163 for May 30, then $152.31 until June 5 and then $163 for that last weekend night.

I think AAA is $246.60/night...with tax appx $554.85 for 2 nights.

7 day tickets for $206.64 each (2 tickets inc. tax)

So...it might be a little cheaper to purchase a la carte....or, do a package if it's easier for you...but, usually, packages are not cheaper w/ Universal like they are w/ Disney.

That seems high to me. A better idea is to purchase 1 preferred annual pass and then get the APH rate. I just checked and the total cost of 1 AP, 1 2-park unlimited admission ticket and 2 nights RPR King at APH rate was a total of $721.21. $30 cheaper, plus you now have a AP for discounts on food and drink. The breakdown was $402.75 for the APH rate room, tax included; and $318.46 for 1 AP and 1 2-park unlimited ticket.

If you decide to do my idea, book the room with the APH rate before purchasing the AP ticket to lock in the AP rate.

8/24/2009 - 8/31/2009 $132 per night, obstructed view, at HRH.
Stay 7 for the price of 4, supersaver rate.
This is better than my original AAA rate of $187.

You can either book online at Universalorlando.com or call their reservation number. Here's Universal's website about the "super saver" rate: http://www.universalorlando.com/hote...vings.html#top

Also, the front page has been updated to here!

Ok, here we go, very first time to Universal, so excited!

Month Mar
Date 11- 18
Hotel HRH
Room Type Club Level, (two rooms ) 1 Queen, and 1 King
Rate 255.09 ( a couple of days are 266.51)
Rate Type Super Saver

I am a Lowes Blue Member, so no upgrade right away. Because I am staying club level, I guess I wont be able to get an upgrade anyways?

I think this is a pretty good rate for club level? Please say yes!

Edited to add - that rate is per room, not for both!

Not sure if good rate for club...think so...tlinus would know.

HRH doesn't participate w/ YouFirst w/ Loews anymore....your status/upgrades won't mean anything to HRH.
