Disappointing

When we pulled up in the car the valets were snotty. They had the audacity to correct my wife about what she told them to do. Their tone of voice was completely inappropriate and made comments to one another under their breath. My wife made a complaint about this to the manager who simply said sorry and gave us no resolution. I booked a two bed room and all they had was a king. They did give us a king suite after some complaining but we still did not have two beds. We stayed 3 nights and the second day we did not have maid service. Our TV did not work and after 4 calls to the "ground control" (front desk), who assured me someone would fix it, no one ever came. The only highlight was the two people who handled our bags (one was named Garrison) were really nice. At about 275$ per night I would expect much, much, much more. Frankly I would expect more from a 1 or 2 star hotel than I got here.

Horrible experience and over priced

Terrible hotel and completely over priced. There is an additional twenty something compulsory fee for Internet, gym and other stuff on top of the three hundred a day. The receptionist is completely useless and we lost our mobilr phone and she said no one handed in to her and when we asked if she was lost and found she was Iike oh.. Terrible service!! DO NOT stay here! They did not even bother responding to my complaints too. Better staying at a better priced hotel elsewhere.

A great hotel with lovely rooms

A great hotel with lovely rooms very high end hotel. Go to the outside pool/bar area it is something else all i can say is it is a very sexy hotel on all levels. Was a little disappointed that breakfast was not included for the money we paid. You have no choice but to use valet parking at $35 a night.

Hard Rock Hotel has a number of

Hard Rock Hotel has a number of nightclubs and rooms occupied by large rowdy groups of under 30s on the weekend. Not suitable for children or business travelers. Food was awful and overpriced. As a business traveler I could have stayed somewhere that was better value and more suitable to my needs. Won't be going back.
