The Skinny

The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas is easily one of our favorite party hotels off the Strip. Why? Well, have you ever seen MTV's Spring Break programming? That's pretty much what it looks like at their pool, minus the tacky VJ's and boy bands. (We're talking circa '90's here, for the younger Cheapos.) The rooms here are quite nice, the pool is fantastic, and the restaurants and casino ain't bad either.

Room Quality:

The rooms are a nice size, very clean and tastefully furnished, IKEA style. The two-bed rooms come with two queens, and the one-bed rooms have kings. Two big French doors open up onto the pool (at least those on the pool side do), or a view of the Strip or valley. There is no balcony, though, just doors that open up onto a protective railing. Rumor has it that room service will bring you Oreos and milk if you pay them enough. Stay in the newer tower if you get a chance, the bathrooms have tubs large enough for two, functional faucets, marble floors, counters and walls. You get a robe in the rooms, but you can't keep it for free. Flat screen TVs and a stereo too. You can't keep them, either. Looking to go fancier than a regular room? Try the larger, swankier suites in the HRH Tower. The smallest suites are over 700 square feet and have 2000-song jukeboxes, a couple TVs and the bathrooms have big 'ol tubs that seat two.

Service Quality:

Good. If you aren't old, they will treat you like you belong there. It helps a lot to have a goatee (boys) or fake boobs (girls). Vice versa isn't much help. Take your I.D., though, because they are really scared of being raided thanks to their reputation a hot spot for the youth.

What You Get Bottles of in the Bathroom:

It's all snooty Gilchrist and Soames stuff, which is actually made in Indiana. The bottles used to be larger than average hotel fare, but they have cut back and now the bottles are nothing special.

Clientele:

Single fraternity and sorority members in their 20's, looking to become unsingle or at least get some action. There also is a perpetual cougar advisory. And, of course, sort of creepy older guys trolling for young women impressed by the appearance of wealth.

How's the Pool?

Top notch. Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Vegas is a great place for picking up chicks or guys, which is what this place is all about. It looks like it came right out of MTV Spring Break. There are sand beaches along a meandering stream-like pool, and plenty of places to ogle the opposite sex. There is a bar area with swim-up blackjack. Just bring lots of sunblock in case you get on a roll with the opposite sex. We have body-image issues, so we'll be the guys in the T-shirts down to our knees.

Resort Fee:

You gotta pay to party like a rockstar. $22 per night resort fee at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. It includes internet, a daily newspaper, access to the fitness room, round trip shuttle to fashion show mall, local, domestic long distance and toll free calls, notary service and boarding pass printing.

Is it Worth It?

If you love to party this is the place to be, and the prices aren't that bad either. If you are looking for a classy and luxurious experience, this isn't the best spot for you.

Table Games:

The casino has many tables of all the popular games like blackjack, roulette and craps. The blackjack once had generous rules, but no longer does and now some are 6:5. The jerks! If you want to watch go-go dancers while you wager, check out the little Hell's Belles area of the casino.

Bet Minimums:

Five bucks or higher for craps, with 3x4x5x odds. Blackjack starts at $10, but don't go looking for tables at those rates on weekend nights when the LA jackasses hit the town. Roulette is played with $1 chips and a $5 minimum. They often have a few sucker games for $5, like Caribbean Stud and No-bust 21.

Machines:

The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas has slots from a penny to $100. The slots have "rock" themes with as well as all the typical lame slot themes based on old TV shows and movies.

Cocktails?

Fair cocktail service. The waitresses (who are often very pretty) here are more likely to get a big tipper drunk, and a big tipper means $5 a drink. In our experience, if you're just an Average Joe who tips the average amount, they won't be back very often.

Who Gets Comps?

We've gotten a couple of free nights here, but only because they thought we were someone we're not. Mostly, you need to be playing the black chips to get free rooms. At the slots, the Rockstar club gives you decent rebate in play. They also rate $10 and up bettors at their tables. Not sure what they do with that information, but we know they will rate you if you ask.

Number of TVs:

A wall of TVs, none of which are huge, but all are close enough to read the fine print in the male enhancement ads.

Number of Seats:

They have about 75 seats at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Vegas. They are big continuous and stuffed. Nicely comfortable.

Number of Betting Windows:

About seven, backed up by electronic signboards.

Free Drinks?

You need to get a free drink chit when you place your bet, then pray that the ballgame you're watching doesn't go into extra innings.

Snack Bar?

No snacks, and no snack bar nearby.

Other Notes:

$5 will get you in the sports action, $2 for racing.

The sports book at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas is managed by Cantor, who claims it is a sports book and sports bar. Really, though, it's just a small-sized joint with easy access to hooch.

Number of Tables:

Eight tables fill this nice, but small, room. The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas tried going with a really great poker room, but have scaled it back considerably.

Comfort of Chairs:

The seats are very comfortable, high-backed suede with rollers. This setup is not only comfortable but safe as the high backs will keep you from spilling out when you go careening across the room after a huge win.

Closed Room or Open to Casino?

This is an open room across from the casino floor. There is plenty of ambient noise and obnoxiously loud music to make your eardrums bleed.

Game Spreads and Limits:

No limit is $1-$2 and $2-$5 are regulars, with $3-$6 and $4-$8 limit less regular. They may get a mixed game going if there is enough interest.

Beginner Games or Classes:

No, but they will teach you if it is slow and you ask nicely.

How Crowded is the Room?

This room does not get the action the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas had hoped. Occasionally they may get as many as five tables going, but its usually between one and four with little noise.

Comps?

It's a tiered structure with the lowest limit games netting a buck an hour for you, and the fancier games getting you $1.50. They also have high hand jackpots, which is a comp of sorts, but only for good players. So, not us.

How Good Are the Players?

The players at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Vegas are generally pretty poor. For now, a few sharks may be prowling the $2-$5 and up no limit games. But at the lower limits, you're going to find a lot of yahoos who come down from their rooms and are filling time until the nightclubs open. Late weekend nights have to be a virtual feeding frenzy.

What Else Do I Need to Know?

This is a good room with plenty of space. It's nice except for the noise and the number of lookyloos. There are two deep-stack daily tournaments.

HRH Tower City View King

The sparkling lights of the Vegas Strip can be very romantic, or just remind you of the party  you're missing while you're up in your hotel room. Either way these rooms are pretty nifty with your choice of one king or two queens. You also get a minibar, in-room safe, and basic technology including free Internet, plasma TV and CD player. The electronic check-out is nice but if you sleep all day with the help of the black out curtains even a gadget won't save you from the hotel staff.

Hard Rock Las Vegas - favorite pool in vegas

I have been to Vegas at least 15 times and the Hard Rock pool is still my favorite.Real sand, great music, swim up tables, swim up bar, etc. There are beautiful people everywhere and everyone is there to have fun. It's perfect for a bachelor or bachelorette party (tons of people under 35). Get there early (by 10am) or reserve a cabana if you are going with a big group. It gets crowded very fast.

Hard Rock las Vegas - Room is dated, Nightlife is killer

As one of my bucket list items, I want to stay at each of the major Las Vegas Hotels. This time, a bunch of friends and I stayed at the Hard Rock to see a Rugby Tournament which happened to be the host hotel. Compared to other Vegas hotels that I have stayed in, The Hard Rock is a bit off the strip and in my opinion, a tad bit worn down and old feeling. It wasn't a bad stay. The room was comfortable but if you are going to Vegas and really want that "wow" factor, I don't think you should stay here. On the other hand, the nightlife is killer here. You've got some incredible options that people from the best of the best hotels come to the Hard Rock to experience. If you are into rock, Wasted Space is the place to be. If you aren't into rock, there are plenty of other places in the hotel that plays great music, crazy dance floors, and attracts beautiful people. Check out the pool bar for a really good show! (clothing must be optional lol)
