My picture threads consist of images I have taken that focus on the architecture, landscape architecture, planning, design, and theming of the facilities highlighted. They may also contain short descriptions and commentary, but will not focus on construction progress or special events or memorabilia or food selections or my traveling companions. Hopefully these threads are a good introduction for those who have not seen these places yet. All killer, no filler!
Hard Rock Hotel photographed in November 2008:
The three resorts on the Universal Orlando property are linked by a river-like waterway and water taxis that go to the Universal Citywalk lake from which both theme parks are entered. This resort is styled in a California Mission theme, with several wings surrounding a large pool and recreation area. The interiors feature many of the rock and roll artifacts for which this chain of hotels and cafes is famous.
