The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is an entertainment resort that is situated in Las Vegas, Nevada, on 16.7 acres. It was built in 1995 by its co-founder, Peter Morton, and was expended in 1999 and again in 2007. While located off the Strip, the hotel maintains a vibrant atmosphere with clubs, pool parties, and extensive gaming areas.
The property includes a 30,000 square foot tower that is 11 stories high. The hotel has 648 guestrooms and 64 specialty suites and penthouses. The luxurious poolside suits at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino are highly sought after because of the high tech amenities, such as a floating platform bed with ceiling mirrors, goose down comforter and feather pillows, in room bar, 58" flat panel LCD TV, large sitting area, and personal patio with a fire pit. The spa villa suits and celebrity suit equally have their own unique amenities and are also very popular with guests.
The hotel earns about 30% of its revenue from gaming. The 30,000 square foot Double Down Casino offers hours of amusement with table games and high-limit slot machines. For both fun and relaxation, there are Tahitian style beaches and pools with attractive landscaping and poolside cabanas and daybeds. Spontaneous daytime and nighttime events are routinely scheduled at the pools for all hotel guests. The Reliquary Spa is situated in the HRH All-Suite Tower and features a sauna, whirlpool, co-ed pool, and areas to relax and hangout.
There are nine places to eat at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. At 35 Steaks and Martinis, guests can choose from land and sea options, along with a host of delicious desserts. The Culinary Dropout is a quirky, laidback place for foodies who are looking for a soul kitchen that serves mouth-watering recipes and fresh cocktails. The Fu is a ritzy bistro that serves Asian signature dishes, such as grilled tenderloin of beef with spicy fu sauce and pan fried scallops with soy mirin.
The Pink Taco is popular with the lively hotel guests because the restaurant’s patio overlooks one of the pools and the music is plenty loud. The black bean chicken tacos and yummy margaritas are excellent. Nobu is famous for their delicious Japanese cuisine, and the casino eatery, Mr. Lucky’s, offers adult milkshakes and tasty burgers around the clock. Next to the Reliquary Spa is the Juice Bar, which not only serves coffee and smoothies, but wine, beer, and other alcoholic beverages as well. The Fuel Café and Fuel Café Express are ideal for grabbing a fresh bakery item, pizza, or sandwich.
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is home to the Hart and Huntington Tattoo Parlor, which features some of the most talented resident tattoo artists in the United States. The hotel has numerous retail shops, including The Hard Rock Store, Affliction, John Varvatos, Love Jones, and Rocks the Jewelers. There are three cocktail lounges, a nightclub and over 196,000 square feet of conference, meeting, and special event space.
