This was an awesome experience. I've visited Biloxi many times. Pre-Katrina the Grand on the beach side was our favorite, but it is no more. But like the lotus, the Hard Rock rose from the ashes (not in the same space, but close.)
Located on the beach side a little to the east, the Hard Rock offered delightful accommodations. Entering the guest room, one is greated by a very efficient and user friendly layout, not to mention a great soundtrack. Its location provides great gulf views, an adjacent beach, and an adjacent restaurant (McElroy's) that has breakfast and seafood to die for. The hotel swimming pool is a resort in itself, with swim up bar and poolside service, hot tubs and music that rocks. You can see osprey and dolphins from the pool deck if you pay attention.
They are currently constructing a second hotel building on-site which should provide equally spectacular gulf views. But the jury is out on how they will accommodate the extra volume in the pool and parking arenas. Obviously, the opening of McElroy's will relieve the strain on the feeding frenzy. This little pearl is also located at the eastern end of Biloxi on Hwy 90 within walking distance of Ocean Springs and the back bay area (given you really like walking.) Or call it a short drive, but it offers Hook Up, Margarittaville, Palace, Imperial Palace, and several other restaurant and entertainment alternatives in short order.
I'd call it a diamond in the rough, but the polish is beginning to show. So instead, a real jewel!
