    You First replaced Loews First.

    HRH is no longer participating as it's not Loews. Use the Hard Rock All Access card at HRH.

    and, just so you know, they did away with "welcome gifts".

    check Loews You First site for the new perks.

    That's too bad. We really enjoyed those welcome gifts! :lovestruc
    I'll look into the All Access card. But did someone say you don't get a welcome gift with this either? Or late checkout? So do I want to spend $5 for a pin and backpack, that's what I have to consider...

    the one all access you get when you check in to hrh is free.

    the other all access that anyone can buy on line costs $25.
    When I subscribed online about 6-7 years back, i received the membership all access card, loaded aa card of $20, collector hrc pin, sling back pack.

    membership once you enroll, is for a lifetime.

    i'm a pin collector.
    year ago last, i spent over $800 at HRC shop on pins.
    and that was with my discount.

    you can get upgrades if available as a room perk.
    you go ahead of all other lines for a table at hrc when you show your all access card.
    by that i mean, ahead of the priority line for hotel guests......

    if you are not a hrh or hrc homie like me, all of the above wouldn't mean squat to you... :laughing:

    I was able to get an upgrade to Club level in Aug. when we went!!!!!:dance3::cool1: :woohoo::woohoo:The girl at the desk said that they weren't supposed to do upgrades anymore, but she would give me one!:rolleyes:

    Thanks to you and this thread for all the info! I wouldn't have known about the All Access pass.
    We were so excited to get the upgrade!!! DS loved Club Level....especially the lounge!! DH and I did too!!

    Is it worth it to spend a night at one of the Universal hotels if I'm going to see a show at the HRC one night of my trip? If so, which hotel would be best? I was planning on going to IoA to see Harry Potter that day anyway. I'm guessing the Hard Rock, but I'm wondering how close the cafe is to the resort.
    All my excursions to Universal, and I never paid attention to the hotels.

    I can't remember from our trip 2 1/2 years ago...

    1. Do the rooms at HRH have a mini fridge? Not looking for a stocked bar, but somewhere to stash drinks, maybe some milk?


    2. I see that they now have Kuerig coffee pots. Is that new? I don't remember those last time and am excited to be able to bring a few flavors that I like.

    3. Finally, assuming the rooms do have a mini fridge, has anyone ever successfully ordered from Garden Grocer or somewhere similar and had them deliver to HRH (or grocery shopped a little if you have a car)? We stayed club level last time, but just didn't get our money's worth, so in an effort to save a few bucks, I was thinking of having cereal and pop tarts for the morning, a few beers in the fridge if we want. Some snacks & other drinks. Not a whole lot, but just a few things to have in the room. We get tired of eating out all the time.


    Thanks.

    Sorry, it's a mini bar. Although you may be able to fit a couple of things in it, there isn't room for much. We have been known to bring one of those throw-away cheap coolers and fill it will ice from the ice machine previously.:rolleyes1

    Love the Kuerig, and if you have specific flavors you like bring them. They just have a few basic selections.

    As far as Garden Grocer, don't know since we always have a car and buy at Target, Walmart on the way, or a near-by grocery store. There are many stores to get stuff at, if you have a car. There is a Publix really close to there and a couple of Walmart Superstores not too far.

    Have fun! :yay:

    Thanks! We may have a car, haven't decided yet, and a styrofoam cooler might work. Thanks!

    Thanks for your help with this, and all US/IOA questions.:goodvibes

    As so many posters ask about this, I thought I'd post my recent experience with joining All Access ($24.95 + $1.95 s & h).:) When I joined online, these were (and still are) the benefits listed:

    * $20 in All Access rewards good toward the purchase of food, beverage or merchandise at participating cafes

    * Limited Edition membership pin ($12 value)

    * First available, preferred seating for your cafe visits

    * Late check out, room upgrades, check in gifts at participating Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos when available

    * 10% off purchases in Hard Rock's online Rock Shop

    * Access to special promotions throughout the year

    * Personalized area on HardRock.com for members to track their All Access rewards

    * Monthly newsletter email

    * 12-issue subscription to Rolling Stone ($9.95 value) "click here for subscription and rebate details" (US residents only)


    This is the confirmation I received after purchase:

    Congratulations, xxxx You are an official All Access member! You can start using your card as soon as you get it in the mail. The card will already be loaded with $20 worth of All Access rewards that you can use at participating Hard Rock Cafes and Rock Shops toward the purchase of food, beverages, and merchandise. And don't forget to visit our Online Rock Shop, where you'll get 10% off Hard Rock merchandise you can only find online. Just login with your All Access username to enjoy this benefit today.

    Thank you for signing up for our limited time offer to receive 12 issues to Rolling Stone magazine, included with your new All Access membership. Please allow 6-8 weeks for your subscription to begin.


    I joined about two weeks ago, and earlier this week, I received a package with a sling-type bag and the rewards card. No collector's pin, it seems the back pack is in place of the pin. Just one card, so I'm not sure if they now only send the one, or I should expect another in the mail.

    The All Access program seems a bit of a slap dash affair!:laughing: From reading here and other threads, they have at least two programs: one free with different benefits than the other for-a-fee program; the advertised swag may or may not be what you receive; the Rolling Stone mag subscription is sometimes a full year, sometimes one issue. The reservations line doesn't seem to be fully informed regarding the two - I got an odd response when I stated I would be receiving mine in the mail.:crazy:

    Oh, and speaking of the magazine - the "click here" link on the website takes you to a page with a rebate form, stating you should only fill it out if you DO NOT want the magazine subscription!:upsidedow From the looks of it, you can get some sort of rebate for the portion of the membership fee that includes the mag subscription, but I don't know for sure - I like RS, so was happy to get it (if I get it, lol).

    macraven - Thanks, I'll try emailing. Since the pin was listed, but the sling bag was not, I assumed they had run out of the pins and substituted. No biggie, I just find these things humorous.:goodvibes

    I am so looking forward to our upcoming HRH stay - 6 nights in May!:banana: Now, if only my adult kids can make a decision on who is going along, so that I can add an extra room before they are booked up:headache:

    I got both the sling bag and the pin, as well. The pin was tucked in the bag, and quite frankly, I almost missed it. Check the bag again carefully.

    Oops, I have moved the bag around several times! I did not think to check inside, although I did check the packaging. I'm going to go look now, brb!

    ETA: Hey, thanks!:goodvibes It was just as you suspected, the pin was down in a corner of the bottom of the bag. Easy to miss, obviously.:laughing: I'm glad I hadn't gotten around to emailing yet.:blush:

    Me, too, we would likely have thrown stuff into the bag and never known it was there. Thanks again, malcontent!:yay:

    I'm back :surfweb: it's been a while since I last posted, but March break for Canadians is looming... and I'm just thinking what if? So I went to check out room availability. I don't remember it being so expensive? Looking at $485 a night plus, plus... is this about right?:confused3

    Need a strategy. Want to see Big Time Rush for Mardi Gras with dd teenager. Would you suggest couple nights to take advantage of fol priviledges then hoping to hit discovery cove or sea world for a couple of days, so thinking after spending 2 nights 3 days at Universal we could do Discovery Cove, Seaworld itinery at another hotel not soooooo expensive? Does anyone have a better idea? Is it worth it compared to buying FOL seperately? All ideas welcome :lovestruc

    We are staying for 6 nights in September and I can't wait.

    Have booked the Deluxe Room for the extra space as it will be DH, DS8 and myself.

    Is the deluxe room worth the extra $$?

    Would be interested in hearing others opinion. I just figure since we are staying 6 nights, we will be glad of the extra space away from each other :rotfl:

    Also interested to hear about the best places to eat, either at HRH or around?

    Cheers
    Angela
