So, my husband was going on another business trip and I thought, hey, I've never been to Vegas, Ill tag along. We left on a Tuesday night,had a direct flight out of Cincinnati (awesome)!! Flying into Vegas at night is amazing. It's dark, dark, and then all the sudden there's this HUGE area of lights that stretch for miles. We were both pretty tired …
Our ******** summit at Angel's Landing led us to try and find an easier hiking day on Sunday. We started with the Watchman trail. Although the trail starts right at the visitor center, it was the least busy trail we encountered in Zion. And, it wasn’t paved, which is a big plus for us. We saw a lot of plant life, a couple of deer, and a bevy …

It was my 3rd time in Vegas this year. Why do I get on plane and go to Vegas? I don't gamble, but I looove to party! Not to party and get drunk and do crazy things... but to dance. I guess I should say I looove to dance, and there is nowhere in the bay that you can dance all night like in Vegas.
I started to party when I was 14 in Brazil. I …

TravelPod Member ReviewsHard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas
This hotel was indeed very nice, and had just about everything we needed. However, it's for the younger crowd, and by that i mean 18-24. If spring break parties are your thing, then stay here.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas
Nightlife beyond belief
I have not stayed at the hotel so I cannot offer tips on rooms but I have spent several nights their just for the excitement. I would describe this place as a casino nightclub combination. The pool is gorgeous (as are the people) and it can't be beat for a good party night. I thought the staff was great but did notice the bartenders have no patience if you aren't ready to order on the spot, could have something to do with the other million people screaming for a drink, so just be ready. You can avoid the long waits in the middle bar by searching out one of the 4 other bars along the outside. Babys was fun but very crowded, I was told it is being closed, enlarged, and completely remodeled sometime this summer. Only ate at Luckys and had a good meal (French Dip and Fries.. something like $10) and was served very quick. This place is not as upscale as the Bellagio or the Venetian but that's whats cool about it. Just plain fun!
I recently went to Las Vegas for my 21st birthday and stayed at the Hard Rock. I would definitely stay there again. The rooms were quite big and very clean (loved the curtains). The staff was very polite had great attitudes. Every night there were security guards by the elevators that needed to see your room key. They made me a little nervous, but they were just doing their jobs, and what a great job they did. The music is NOT that loud. I thought it was louder walking along the strip than in the hotel, little disappointing to a person who craves loud music. I would definitely recommend staying at the Hard Rock. As for me...one time is never enough.
An interesting place
My wife & I have stayed at the Hard Rock 9 or 10 times since it opened. We've had rooms both in the original structure and the newer tower "extension". The rooms are minimalist, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Less furniture means more room. Pool-side rooms have a nice view but can be noisy during daylight hours (in case you want to sleep in late).Casino staff runs the gamut from extremely friendly to downright surly. Reception staff are fairly efficient but peak times mean long lines. Slot club personnel are impersonal. Cocktail waitresses are very polite and (usually) stop by the slot machine/table often.Casino is pleasant during the day but tends to become a mob bar scene at night, especially on Fridays & Saturdays. Loud music combines with crowd noise to create a sound level that makes normal conversation difficult.Sports book is small but has very comfortable chairs. Food at Mr. Lucky's (coffe shop) and Pink Taco (pseudo-Mexican) is pretty good.Hard Rock is very much the hip, "in-crowd" kind of establishment. If you're looking for a place to see and be seen while gambling, this is your place. If loud music & heavy cigarette smoke annoy you, avoid the Hard Rock at night.
Stayed at Hard Rock for 3 nights in Feb 2002 with a buddy. We were in a beautiful room overlooking the strip on the top floor. The rooms were clean and beautiful people were roaming around throughout the hotel (employees included). There was a certain magic in the air. Lucky 24/7 is a cool coffee shop with good food. The bar scene is a trip at night and the rock music is cool. The pool wasn't even open and I still can't say enough good things about this place! The gift shop is cool too.
Not very relaxing!
I stayed at the Hard Rock mid-week in Aug. 2002. I have to say that our check in (on a Wednesday) was pretty easy, accept that we couldn't figure out where to park or where the valet was. Signs weren't posted anywhere. Our room was beautiful and clean and we had a nice view of the mountains. The casino was a joke... unless you're a high roller this place isn't for you. We never felt welcome by any of the casino staff. I know this is a rock-n-roll theme but for goodness sake, turn the music down. We had to yell to hear each other. And who's idea was it to make wall sconces out of cymbals in the hallways of the rooms? We were awoken every night between 3 & 5 am by some bozo slamming the "cymbal" sconces as they went down the hall. The pool was very pretty and the sand bottom was unique to say the least. The staff at the pool was very nice and even set up my chair and towel (they were the nicest employees). The speakers around the pool were so loud we wanted to throw them in the water! We wanted a couple friends to join us from another hotel and we were told it would cost $35 per person... I want to remind you that this was a mid-week stay and it wasn't very busy! The Pink Taco was terrible and the staff looked like they were more interested in each other than the clientele. We went our first day for happy hour and sat a table... it was a great value even considering the cruddy service. We went the next day for happy hour and were denied a table with the explanation that they don't serve happy hour at the tables... hmmm, now I'm confused. We were told that they changed the rule that day... how convenient! The memorabilia was interesting but took only a few minutes to see. We won't stay here again, too expensive for the amenities and treatment we received.
Hard Rock Rocks
I had always wanted to stay at the Hard Rock, and on my last trip (June '02), I got the chance. All I can say is, "WOW!" For everyone contemplating a stay at the Hard Rock, go for it! Check in took only 20 minutes, and went very smoothly. The room was very clean and made up every morning. I got to take in the pool for several hours one morning and loved it. I couldn't find (or smell) anything out of the ordinary. The staff was always more than helpful, even the security guys at the elevators. Keep in mind that the Hard Rock caters to a younger, hip crowd, and tries it's best to convey that rock star image, so some things might seem overdone to some, but as long as you know what you are getting into, you'll love it! I will be going back next week (March 25, '03) and I can't wait!
Had a blast at the hotel and everyone was friendly and courteous. Great bar scene but there are better places to gamble.
A Balanced review.
Ok....first of all I have only stayed here 1 time. I stayed here in August of 2001. I thought the room was nice and well appointed. I was not too fond of the security guys at the elevators. Dressed all in black and had all the charm of characters out of the Godfather, Goodfellas, or the Sopranos. I half expected them to pull a gun out of a shoulder holster and start to plug hotel guests. Someone should tell them that its not a bad thing to smile.
The restaurants are ok but a bit on the pricey side. The Mexican Restaurant...The Pink Taco? If you like and know good Mexican food.....avoid this place like the plague. Its about as Mexican as Taco Bell without the prices. Overpriced and not real Mexican food. The coffeeshop is overpriced but at least the food is decent....not great but decent.
The casino is very cramped. Table seem just a tad too close to each other. The dealers for the most part were friendly. The music is cranked up just a tad too loud but the casino definitley has a "party" feel to it.
My main pet peeve was that in a 5 day stay, I was jarred out of my sleep at about 5 a.m. by their fire alarm annoucements. I have been going to Las Vegas since about 1984 and this was the first 2 times I have ever been jarred out of my sleep by fire alarms. What was irritiating was the recorded voice saying :"stay in your room, we're investigating, and will be giving you more info." They never gave any more information. So 2 times, I was blasted out of my sleep only to lay there scared 'bleepless' waiting for more information that never came.
To sum up. I won't say the place is as bad as the other 2 reviewers but it would take a really low rate for me to come back to the Hard Rock.
Also a Terrible Experience
We experienced the same issues as the prior reviewer. Five hour check-in on a Sunday evening- front desk is highly understaffed. We went to the pool to wait to check in the second time (there are two lines & procedures to check in), and it was so crowded, there was no room to sit down. The bathrooms had a strong marijuana smell.
When we finally got our room, it was dirty- clumps of hair on the floor. We wanted to have some wine in our room and the security guard would not let us take it up after we had purchased it. He gave us major attitude was very threatening, and said they would be liable if we were to get sick somehow. Very stupid explaination. If they had a problem with this they should check out the pool bathrooms for heavy drug use. Much more serious than a bottle of Merlot.
We immediately left back to the strip, and did not spend another dime at the HRH. It was the worst experience I have had at a hotel, and it is true they do not care because I gave feedback and they never replied.
Hard Rock Hotel is the worst!
Never anywhere have we felt so unwelcome! The staff at this hotel needs a serious attitude adjustment. Being a late 20'S attractive couple we thought this would be the "cool place"to spend 7 days. BIG MISTAKE! Check in was a total disaster making us wait over 6 hours even after we were told at check in that our room was vacant. We booked hthis hotel because of the pool. Again BIG MISTAKE. The beach smelled of waste and when we asked the staff why they told us they have a stray cat problem and the cats keep using the beach as a litter pan. GROSS. You can't sleep past 9am as they blare rock music thoughtout and it can be heard in your room. The food is expensive and terrible always served cold with a "SO WHAT ATTITUDE" They only way one can enjoy there stay here is if the have no idea what good service is or are too drunk to notice as are many of the hotel guests. This place is by far the worst out of the several hotels we have stayed at in Vegas
