    Cons

  • rowdy crowd
  • minuscule sports book.[]HIGHLIGHTS[]The pool parties: The sprawling pool complex is great fun on its own, but during weekends in spring and summer, the place comes to life with killer pool parties that draw crowds by the hundreds.

When you stay here, you truly do feel like a rock star.[]The shopping: In addition to housing one of the only Love Jones stores in Las Vegas, the Hard Rock features a huge John Varvatos, and a Hart & Huntington Tattoo.[]Amenities[]In addition to offering massage treatments of 50 and 80 minutes, the Reliquary Spa offers "rush" treatments of 25 minutes for those who don't want to peel themselves away from the casino for too long.[]Specialists at the full-service Reliquary Salon tackle everything from hair to fingers and toes.[]An on-site Juice Bar serves up fresh elixirs to prolong that healthful feeling after relaxing at the pools, spa, or salon.[]Bose CD-stereos and flat-screen plasma TVs in rooms

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Review

This sprawling resort is a shrine to rock 'n' roll—with rock tributes, exhibits, and authentic memorabilia everywhere. An all-suites south tower, dubbed HRH Tower, opened in January 2010. Across the board, rooms are adorned with sleek furnishings, Bose CD-stereos, and flat-screen plasma TVs that show continuous music videos on one channel. The new poker room is a big hit among serious card sharks. The concert space, The Joint, features top national rock bands, some of whom take up residency for weeks or months. Bands such as Def Leppard, Mötley Crüe, and Santana have played extended runs at the Joint. The Hard Rock's pool area is a tropical beach–inspired oasis with a floating bar, private cabanas, and swim-up blackjack; it doubles as a favorite filming location for popular TV shows. Very crowded (but fun) public areas offer plenty of opportunities for people watching. It's possible to score reasonable rates here on week nights. On weekends the crowd tends toward young partiers.

    Best Beds

    I really enjoyed the very comfortable beds at the Hard Rock Hotel. You just sink down and surround yourself with all the down feathers. The decor is excelent. My only complaint would be the shower that leaks out into the toilet area. I did have something of value stolen out of my room which has never happened before and security did take a statement but I have never heard back anything. Unfortunately the only other person to enter my room was the cleaning lady. Hopefully they have tightened their security with the staff. The people that checked us in and out were VERY slow and were not very helpful with some questions we had. Other than that the hotel itself is excellent.
