Average hotel at a ridiculous price – I think this is only an average hotel. The rooms are nothing special and considering the location, there are nicer hotels on the strip for the same price or less. They have a nice spa, and Mr. Lucky 777 special is a good deal. The pool area, I think, is small. There is only one reason this place is still open, and that is "to see and be seen". There is a lot of eye candy but I did not think it was worth the price of admission.
Last Review – I read the last review before I went to stay at the Hard Rock and was a little worried about staying there but I found the hotel to be completely the opposite. There was plenty of room to get ready. Plenty of counter space, mirrors, and a huge tub. Not sure what type of room this person had but I just had a standard room. This room was for two women. The hotel was great.
Good for guys only – Everyone told me I HAD to stay at the Hard Rock. 20 minutes after I arrived I remembered that everyone who told me that was a guy. There were hundreds of overweight hairy men by the pool and a few 20 year old girls in bikinis strutting through the lobby. No women anywhere, for good reason. There were no mirrors in the room or countertops in the bathroom. How does a woman apply makeup with a setup like that? We ended up with blow-dryers, hairspray and glasses of water resting on the tile floor of the bathroom, which also didn't even have a bathtub.
Lives up to it's name! – Very impressed this time around. Especially because they must have done away with the lame "No bringing your own food or drink to the pool." '311' was also playing on Labor Day and they opened the doors to The Joint for the last 3 or 4 songs so everyone in the casino was able to see! Thanks! Also Mr. Lucky's still has great service and a wonderful selection of food. As usual I stayed when I could get a $69 room rate instead of the norm of $200 plus!
OVER 35 & still rockin', kids – I hate to disappoint you 20-somethings, but the under 35 crowd doesn't have the market cornered on "cool".
I'm OVER 35, I'm still hot, I still rock & I had a blast here too.
And, I also prefer places w/o kids.
Not in my wildest dreams could I imagine walking thru a hotel lobby & hearing AC/DC! What a blast!
But I can't wrap my brain around the idea of that "sand beach pool" - HATED it.
People watching is a riot, especially the Britney wannabes.
It's like watching a parade of little girls playing "dress up" in mom's clothes.
Advice: bring 75W bulbs w/ you.
Every single bulb in our room was 40W & the lighting was ridiculously dim.
Try getting dressed in black when you can't SEE your wardrobe!
Try AJ's Steakhouse & Simon for dinner or a cocktail. They both rock.
HArd Rockin – This place rocks ! Good music good food and good fun !
Not the property it used to be. – When the Hard Rock Hotel first opened it's doors, the music and food were great and the crowds were diverse. Since it's expansion and new management, the service and food quality seem NOT to have been a consideration. The pool, however, is the best in Vegas with it's cabanas, slide and outdoor gaming. The crowds are very young, often catering to those under 21 with concerts in the Joint. Go figure!
I expected more – I visited the Hard Rock and all that I have to say is ....great atmosphere...why isn't it attracting a fun, energetic crowd....I'm 25 and don't want to have to wait for screaming kid in the stroller to get out of my way to get to the bar. No thanks.
Scene? – My girlfriend and I visited on a weekend and ran into as many families and middle-aged couples as trendy 20- and 30-somethings. The casino and pool are a bit smaller than some of the mega-casinos on the strip. The sleek retro decor is cool -- though the rock and roll paraphernalia (guitars and such) are kind of cheesy and more suited to the theme restaurants (how much of that stuff is authentic?).
The Hard Rock rocks – DEFINITELY a young, vibrant crowd. Even the "older" people staying there adopt a spring break mentality.
Location off the strip is no problem (it's a quick cab ride), unless someone is dead set on playing at the big casinos elsewhere. Restaurants offer everything. Mr. Lucky's is a great 24-hour option for the more budgeet-conscious diner. If you like sushi, there is NO PLACE better than Nobu.
The wait staff in the restaurants was very friendly, and maintenance showed up to replace a broken remote control in under 3 minutes.
The pool is a terrific place to spend the day, but bring a picture ID to order food or drinks (this policy applies all over the hotel; they're big on enforcing the picture id). Wednesday night pool party is great.
1. fee to use hotel's athletic facilities;
2. painfully long checkout line.
