Can't say enough about the quality of the room. We actually stayed there several years ago but there is no option here for that long ago...
The room was amazing. The bed had down comforter and tons of pillows. Terrific tv/entertainment set-up and a bathroom to die for with sliding opaque green glass slider wall!
My hubby just returned from Tampa yesterday, after spending a week there, on a poker vacation with a friend. They stayed elsewhere, but spent over 12 hours/day in the new poker room which is the main purpose for this review.
I was hoping to plan a joint trip back to the Hard Rock later this year, with my hubby, but we will pick another resort now that hubby is back to report on their new poker room:
1. the room is beyond cold. can you say "ice cold?"!! He drove around to 8 stores, hoping to find a sweatshirt or even long underwear, but all the winter merchandise had been removed from the stores already to make room for summer clothing. So he froze for 7 days in that poker room .They admit there is a problem....My hubby has no problem with cool poker rooms; that is the norm but he said this was just horribly cold. He wore a light windbreaker but it gave no warmth at all. I hate freezing poker rooms, so we wont' be returning.
2. no free drinks - this is due to lack of competition, so be forewarned. A beer will cost you $4.50 while you are gambling anywhere in this casino. Total rip off and unheard of everywhere else. We play all over the country & not big drinkers, but toss us a bone for all we are spending!
3. too much is cut from the pots
4. after 7 days of playing for 12 hrs/day minimum, all the boy got was a coupon for the buffet.
Maybe all the above is a sign of the times, but I prefer to go elsewhere to gamble as just not the way to treat your customers at a casino. But look out, Hard Rock! Your governor is trying to push a bill through that will bring much-needed competition to the state of Florida. You will be providing complimentary drinks to your gambling patrons one day soon, hopefully.
If you want a nice room, and don't drink, and play slots - go for it! But bring your long underwear as whole casino is very cold...but the poker room is a freezer!
