“Excellent in many ways”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

One overnight on business. Wonderful staff, great security, many amenities in room: multiple connections for electronic gear and USB charging, iPhone connection. Two sinks, nice bedding, rock memorabilia of course. All meals provided were quite good with an attentive wait staff. We had a private dinner in the Chef's Table and that was incredible! Top of the line preparation with an imaginative 4 course menu. Way too much food. Excellent staff, of course!

Stayed November 2012, traveled on business

Had a great few days at the hotel, lots to do, fun atmosphere all around. Had lots to choose from when eating, drinking or playing. Only negative comment is that it still stinks, pun intended, that people can smoke where you are trying to eat. Rude. Hope to have at least smoke free eating areas soon.

For all you families out there considering this hotel, don't worry, between the pool, concerts at night on the weekends, shops and decent restuarants, you will find this hotel to be kid friendly enough to compensate for the overall "adult" element. This adult element includes some of the seedy people who come to the casino (don't worry, there is LOTS of security everywhere), the horrible surrounding area (adult shops, massage parlors...) and the fact that everyone smokes.

As I just mentioned this hotel is a smokers paradise. Just stay away from the heart of the casino and you and your kids will not be knocked down by this second hand smoke. Also if you spend more time in the North tower and the pool, you should be able to get the needed fresh air for your lungs.

Get a non-smoking room with two queens. This room is more than big enough for 4. Plus the sinks and the tiolet/shower are separated by a door. If you can, get a room that faces the AMAZING pool.

The pool, the pool grounds and the pool slide are AMAZING!!!! Add to that decent food and you have a recipie for lots of kid friendly fun. There is zero entry at the pool for the smaller kids. But remember to bring your floating toys (rafts/balls....). On the other hand, the mixed drinks are way too expensive and include measured shots of alcohol. Save your cash and get a bucket of beer (5 beers for $20).

A perfect recipe for a relaxing family vacation day includes: breakfast at the coffee grind (bagels and coffe special for $6); laying out all day at the pool (there's a beach) and eating lunch; then dinner at the outside shopping area where your kids would enjoy Chinease (Asian), Tex Mex, Burgers, Ice Cream... and other food.

To conclude, you never have to leave this property since it offers everything you need for good family fun.

I had booked this hotel for three nights and prepaid the rate. Our flight was delayed and we arrived one day later than intended. We got excellent service at the front desk and were upgraded complimentary (and without asking) to a suite.
The suite was bigger than our apartment ;)
We liked the space and the decor, it was all one could ask for.
The staff was friendly and polite everywhere and seemed more than happy to assist and answer questions.
We used the gym, casino, two restaurants and the food court and were satisfied with all.
The pool area was also really nice but it was closed due to bad weather (Sandy).
For this hotel to be convenient you definitely need a car.
We were happy with our accommodation and would use this hotel again and recommend it to others.

I go to this hotel every time I come to visit my family a couple times each year. It is beautiful with so many interesting artifacts on the walls. There are wonderful restaurants to keep people happy and well-fed. The outside shopping area is also awesome. The casino seems to have gotten a little tighter on their slot payouts but all in all it was still a fun trip.

Room Tip: It never hurts to ask!

I expected a decent stay (I'd been to the casino before, though not the hotel). What we got was well beyond expectations. On checkin, we got a surprise midweek upgrade (though the rating would be similar, I suspect, for a standard room). The room was crystal clean, with modern facilities. The staff -- often a negative at casino hotels -- was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. (Breakfast room service was the best I've ever had -- Rosemarie, take a bow! For service to make a guest special in an affordable hotel is a major plus.) This is the best or second best casino hotel stay I've ever had (only Palazzo in Las Vegas is in the ballpark), and particularly in light of the monopoly the Hard Rock has, quite a pleasant surprise. Only down side: many of the restaurants were closed -- it appears that the outside shop/eat area is undergoing some changes. However, even the Hard Rock Cafe food was better than expected here.

P.S. In reviewing a casino hotel, the casino affects my review only to the following extent: gaming atmosphere counts; variety of machines counts; my personal win/loss doesn't. This was also a big positive here. The machine variety is excellent; the floor is well kept; ventilation is above average. And in full disclosure: we won this time; I lost the last time I visited the gaming area; and of course in the end the casino always wins.
