It was our first time staying at the hard rock and Conner definitely made us feel welcomed. We asked him for some dinner suggestions and he gladly went above and beyond to help us find a place. Conner was very friendly and extremely professional. Once we got up to our room we couldn't believe how beautiful it was. Thanks to... More

Excellent hotel, with great service, near everything I wanted to do. Great service all around. I was in town for business and never had dull moment after work was over. Very good night life, including the roof-top bar at the hotel.

Stayed at the Hard Rock for a conference. Location is outstanding. Rooms are very nice, large, clean and nice. Customer service at the hotel is second to none. The cars are nice as well. Float is okay, but 207 is off the hook on Friday nights.

Some negatives from my stay were the prices at Mary Jane's a restaurant in the hotel...charged almost $9.00 for two sodas. The mattress was horrible. Some positives from my stay was that the air conditioner temp was adjustable and not fixed like most hotels are doing now these days. Nobu restaurant in the hotel was awesome.

Hotel room was great, hospitality was great but if you go in the pool you will get a disease. The pool and jacuzzi were absolutely unacceptable. I can't believe the Hard Rock doesn't take better care of their pool and jacuzzi. I was so excited to hangout in the pool and jacuzzi but wouldn't even put my toes in it.

First time at HR Hotel, great location, confortable but a little bit noisy during the night because of overexcited youngs, fitness room could be better but pool and terrace are amazing. Every time you get the elevator you need to insert the room key and this drove me crazy
