“Amazing resort! Non-stop fun. Highly recommended!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

My girlfriend I and took a 12 day trip to The Fort Lauderdale area and Key West. For the last five nights of our trip we chose to splurge a little and stay in a luxury room at Hard Rock. We took advantage of one of their special offers available six weeks ahead or earlier, and got a Luxury King bed room with balcony and king bathroom for $250 per night.

The resort and room were immaculate! I really have few complaints. Check-in was a breeze. For the first night we booked a standard room because we would be arriving late from Key West. I anticipated they might upgrade us to the luxury room that first night for an additional fee, but to my surprise the receptionist asked if we'd like to upgrade that night for no extra cost so we wouldn't have to change rooms. This was great.

Access to the rooms is permitted by guests only and there is security at the elevators checking room cards 24 hours per day. We entered our room to find an enormous room with balcony overlooking the most extravagant and largest pool that I've ever seen at a hotel! The ice bucket was full for us and music was softly playing rock classics.

The king bath was amazing! A double walk-in shower with marble bench. Along with the two standard shower heads, there were three jets lined up on each side wall to spray you down like a car wash. Never had so much fun in the shower! There was also a large 3.5 foot deep spa type bathtub, minus the jets. As well as a selection of soaps, bath salts, conditioners, lupa sponge, and customary bath robes. Toilet was in separate room inside the bathroom itself.

The room also had all kinds of adaptations to plug in your USB electronics or MP3 players to the stereo or flat screen TV. There was a mini fridge that you couldn't use because they warn you at check-in that even if items are touched but not consumed, you'll be charged. So that stunk, but instead we just used the ice house cleaning replenished us everyday to cool our drinks. The room also had a doorbell and a 'Do Not Disturb' light That you could elect to turn on outside the door by the bell.

The little private "downtown" area with nightlife, restaurants and clubs was a blast! Things went on until 4am. You didn't even have to leave the resort at night. We had so much fun!

Dinning selections were good, and there were some places you could eat without breaking a budget. No buffet though, only a brunch one on Sunday.

I'm not a huge gambler, but was disappointed with my luck on the slots and video blackjack. I never go in expecting to win, but usually you win a little before either quitting or losing it again. At this hotel, I didn't win anything on over $300 in slot play! The whole time I never saw anybody else win anything either! This the only casino I've ever played at where nobody was winning anything! Doing a little research it appears the Seminole gaming board doesn't report their slot payouts percentage, so it's anybody's guess, but internet reviews seem to have a lot of people complaining about exceptionally tight slots and recommend playing at the small casino down the street.

The greatest asset to the hotel is the pool! Simply amazing! Huge! Complete with water slide, and underwater sound system playing rock! There's also a center pool bar playing live music on weekends. You can rent cabanas with refridge and cable TV if you want to pay for it.

To be honest, I only had one major gripe. The pool area was one of the main reasons we choose to stay here. We were very unhappy when we arrived to see the pool closed at sundown! By 8pm it was closed and you couldn't even sit by it, let alone swim in it! It was such a disappointment after a long day out in the hot sun not to be able to come back to the hotel and lounge by the pool as we'd planned. The place is so big, I can't imagine guests would be bothered by noise from the pool? You could barley here anything during the day from our 2nd floor balcony over the background noise from the waterfalls. I don't think I've ever been to a hotel, let alone a huge resort where the pool closes so early! At least turn down the music and stay open until 10pm.

The location of the hotel isn't great. It's in West Hollywood next to the interstate and the area around it is a bit rundown, but not what I'd call unsafe. However, just six miles to the south you get into dangerous high crime parts of Miami such as Liberty City and Opa Locka, so beware if your just out driving around. it would be easy to stray. You're not that far from the jungle of North Miami. Location aside, once your on resort property, you'd think you were in an exclusive area of Miami or Ft. lauderdale. There are plenty of eateries, stores, liquor stores, discount tobacco, etc. with anything you need a short drive down the street.

I should also note that aside from the smoke free floors, you can really smoke anywhere in the hotel you'd like and it is pretty smokey. Being a smoker, that wasn't a problem for me, but my non-smoking girlfriend didn't enjoy that aspect of the place.


If you don't mind sacrificing staying near the beach, this hotel more than makes up for it with fun. The standard rooms aren't quite as nice after peeking in, but are acceptable basic hotel rooms.

Room Tip: Book a room on the east side of hotel facing the pool. West facing rooms have view of parking lot, i...

We stayed here in 2012, this time was just as good. Our room was facing the city this time and not the pool but it was still very nice. The beds are comfy. We used the casino a little bit more this time and the facilties alot more too. The pool area is great and food and drink are reasonable prices too. This hotel has some restaurants just outside. Parking is free.

Room Tip: Try and get a pool view room

We stay overnight at the hotel usually once a month over the past few years. The comps are fair and appropriate. The Council Oak bar area is outstanding including the servers, food and the band is the best! Christine is a great server and Dale in the band is so welcoming.The Blue Plate has good food and service is very good too. Please recognize our waitress Debbie for her great service. We enjoy the spa too but I am not sure if they have comps or discounts. Hair Stylist Alon is fantastic.
On our stay this weekend we noticed that the front desk clerks are not as attentive as we expect. Also the Casino is short on drink servers so we go to the food court to get our drinks. Lastly we were disappointed by one pool towel attendant. We asked for an extra towel he refused.After the number of stays and money we spend surely there is sufficient laundry to ensure they can accommodate a special request.
Please Hard Rock.. maintain high expectations of your teams to ensure your property delivers the high level of service, especially for your more sophisticated travelers, wish to experience.

Just came back from a 5 nite stay at the Hardrockhotel in Fort Lauderdale. We had to wait until check in time but it was worth it. We got a room on 7th floor which was completely handicapped. We had a view of the pool. The pool was beautiful and large enough that no one was on top of you. The water was so clean. It could have used a smoking section. Sometimes it got annoying. The casino was just like Vegas. Plenty of slots! Sometimes the smokers were a bit much and we had to move to another area. No big deal. Loved the choice of food. Plenty to choose from. Can't wait to go back!

The Hard Rock was one of the best experiences I have ever had. It was only a step down from the Bellagio in Las Vegas. While I didn't have the Vegas cost associated with everything.....the service and experiment were definitely there.
