“Hard Rock Casino & Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We come to Florida yearly as a family vacation and my husband and friend always goes to the casino 3 to 4 times during our week vacation. We had the opportunity to stay at the hotel and did before we checked into our rental in Kissimee. The staff was wonderful and made sure my family had everything they needed. My girls (10 & 13 year old) & I hung out at the pool while the hubby played slots, we looked around and visited the shops; everywhere we went the staff greeted us and was very polite. The hotel is gorgeous and clean; rooms were the same. I do plan on staying there again and maybe next time hubby & I can sneek away for the weekend to visit this Hotel/Casino.

I dropped my wife and her friend off early in the evening for a girl's nite out. They checked in to one of the larger suites with a cooler full of champagne. We had simple appetizers in the main cafe area and a couple of drinks to start out. I left by 10:00PM so the girls could get on with their well deserved evening out and drove back to Clearwater. The girls ordered room service in the morning and everything was to their liking. They loved the room, the service, food and drinks. Definitely a great way to have a fun nite out!

Don't have much good to say. If your under the age of 21 ,I guess you can't stay at this hotel. We were at this casino yesterday with our 19 year old grandchild. He did not have his ID with him. He was not drinking or gambling but one of the security people told me he could not even be on the property, so if that be the case if you have children, you can not book a room there to stay, cuz under 21 you can not be on the property.

Only rating my experience at this hotel on the basis of simply being a hotel property. My personal hotel experience was 5*. The hotel, itself, might be rated a 4* hotel. It is really a nice hotel property. I stayed there mainly because prior Winter's play provided 3 free nights with a food & play credits. (I NEED NOT MENTION THE STAY WAS VERY FAR FROM FREE...ENJOY SLOT MACHINES!) The stay facilitated my being able to visiting elderly aunt in Spring Hill and facilitated a needed break with family housing. I commented to my partner just what a nice hotel this is. The room, bath, service, facilities, restaurants were a real treat. Their High-End restaurant, specializing in steaks was great...a bit costly, but worth it. So much so, we returned from Orlando with five the next week to eat there. No one should ever be afraid to stay at this hotel for any reason other than need to stay away from casino. Also, some of the rates quoted in some of the reviews would give me second thoughts.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on high floor that does not overlook casino roof-tops.

Thanks for your feedback. WIth nearly 1,000,000 Player's Club members and only 250 rooms, our occupancy frequently runs at 100 percent in our hotel. Thus, the normal rule of supply/demand applies and our prices reflect that. Thank you for understanding. And we hope to see you again, Council Oak is truly the best steak house in Tampa!
