The staff at the Hotel and Casino are all great...You Feel that you are totally away from the outside world... there where no known issues...We have stayed at Foxwoods in Ct, and have witnessed crowd issues but here at the Hard Rock there are more people on Staff and Everyone Smiled.. Thank You Hard Rock for having the most pleasant and happy employee that We have seen in a long long time. What ever your doing don't STOP..

Room Tip: I don't think there could be a poor section to the high quality hotel

We are never disappointed staying here! Always first class hotel room, amenitites and restaurants. Front desk (Joann) was especially a shining star on this visit. Warm and friendly.
The hotel offers a nice variety of dining choices from "fast food food court to Council Oak depending on your mood and your budget. We plan on returning again and again.

My husband and I stayed at the Hard Rock April 18th for our anniversary. Wow. I expected a certain amount of glitz in the casino but I didn't expect all the extras of the hotel. The room was really cool. The bathroom had a glam double sink with a magnifying makeup mirror and vanity with drawers. There is a glass wall/door which separated the vanity area from the toilet/tub area. Nice, large bathtub. The toilet paper holder is low to the ground because of the phone placement which caused the paper to hit the floor but that was my only complaint. We ended up with two queens because it was available early and both beds were comfortable with good quality bedding. The dresser was large with magazines including Rolling Stone on it. Lots of room and nicely decorated.

The pool area is relativity small but nice. We rented a Cabana which had two cushioned lounge chairs, a sectional sofa, table, flat screen tv,ceiling fan, mini fridge with water and storage cabinet. We had drinks and lunch brought to us from the pool bar menu including a very good chicken salad sandwich. Although the pool was very empty (because it was a Thursday?) we are still happy we paid for the Cabana.

We had dinner at the Green Room for one of the best bacon cheese burgers I have ever had. It was perfectly medium, generous amount of thick cut bacon and fresh lettuce and tomato. Even the side dill pickle was better than most. The chocolate eclair at the Rise Kitchen was very good for breakfast but done up by the Banana Milkyway cake my husband had. Yum.

The staff was very helpful and friendly. We had no complaints with the hotel or food. We will definitely stay again,

Room Tip: Get a Pool cabana for a really exceptional experience. Security checks for a room key to access the...

My visit was very enjoyable. Valet parking staff were very courteous and did and excellent job of welcoming us. Check in went smooth. I really like the electronic security before entering elavator area. Our host was very proffessional and helpfull. High limit slots and highlimit blackjack areas were nice and aesy to traverse between. I will return. Thanks

Had a great dinner at the Hard Rock Buffet in Tampa on Monday evening April 15, 2013. On Monday evening for dinner, starting at 4PM seniors can eat for 9.95 per person with the Hard Rock Players card. The buffet is located on the second floor, however, before you get into line for the buffet ask at the Players Card booth for the dinner coupon for the 55 + year olds. You must have a dinner coupon to get the special price, however several people were able to obtain the coupon after they got into line. A tear off section on the coupon can be dropped into a box near the exit of the buffet for a drawing for cash. We were told you need not be present to win.
The dinner was great, a full menu of meats was available. BBQ ribs were tender and very good, very tender sirloin steak, pork chops, chicken, fish, as well as a stocked oriental station was available. A separate section offered choice steaks cooked to order, and lobster tails for an additional price. A very wide selection of desserts, both sugar and sugar free, were available. Your choice of drinks was included in the price.
We had to stand in line about 30 to 45 minutes, but I feel it was worth it. We got into line around 5:15PM. When we finished dining the line was about the same a little after 7:15PM.
The only draw back was live singing by a group of four men, singing songs from the 1970's. For us, the music was a bit loud as we were seated almost in front of the speakers. Thank goodness they only sang about 20 minutes before taking a break and did not return before we finished eating. Other than that, it was an outstanding meal at a very reasonably price. The atmosphere was wonderful and the buffet very clean. Our waitress was very friendly and kept our drinks full. We will eat there again the next time we are in the area. Its very easy to access off the I-4 interstate and easy return to I-4. Overall an excellent buffet for the price, especially on Monday evenings for the 55+ crowd!
BTW, we saw several people winning at the slots while we walked to the buffet.

Great rooms, Nice food. Expensive parking. The smoking in the lobby was not appreciated. If that is allowed in the casino, but everywhere. Not really... Of course it's nice to be in a Hard Rock and it's close to the highway also. If you don't like massive places, don't go.
