Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
The first rock 'n roll-themed hotel and casino.
With a giant electric guitar at its entrance and blaring rock music throughout its public areas, this place attracts a young, hip, urban crowd. Debuting in 1995 as an $80-million, 325-room hotel-casino, the resort has since expanded to three towers with rooms and suites that feature beds with leather headboards, photos of rock legends and French doors that open to views of the pool area, the Strip or the mountains. You can also choose from opulent suites with large living rooms, state-of-the-art music systems and Jacuzzi tubs; one even has a bowling lane. The lushly landscaped three-acre pool area has a sandy beach, waterfalls, water slides, cabanas, swim-up gambling and a beach club where the action hums day and night. The REHAB pool party happens on Sundays at this property, and nightlife extends to rock concerts in the 1,200-seat theater, The Joint. In addition, nightclub fans wait in a long line to get into the ever popular Vanity. Versatile dining options include legendary Japanese cuisine at Nobu, Culinary Dropout and Pink Taco. The concierge offers a free Rock Tour map of the vast collection of rock-and-roll items mounted on the property's walls. Adjacent to the pool area, the 60,000-square-foot meeting and special event facility houses a notable boardroom.
