Hard Rock or Portofino Bay - Pros/Cons

Hi all.

Which resort would you pick with children, ages 5 and 11? We can get a Deluxe Room at Portofino for the same price as as a standard room at Hard Rock, with a Passholder discount. A few things I don't like about Portofino:

1.The new room decor isn't my taste exactly.
2.The walk is much longer than Hard Rock.
3.I think the kids will like the pool better at Hard Rock (among other things).
4.I here there are a lot of stairs at Portofino which will make getting around difficult, and I also understand it's extremely large, so easy to get lost.

I'm not a huge fan of the Hard Rock rooms decor, but the rest of the resort I like. I also like the idea of having a very short walk to CityWalk should we want a late night snack.

Give these factors, which would you choose?
