The all-suite HRH Tower imparts a truly regal hotel experience at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, which is located just a few blocks east of the Las Vegas Strip along Harmon Avenue. It opened at the south end of the famous rock 'n' roll-themed property in 2009.
The HRH Tower offers lavish accommodations. For example, you will enjoy a private arrival because it has a dedicated porte-cochere and self-parking garage. There is an exclusive lobby with a hotel registration desk for check-in. In addition, the lobby includes an HRH bell desk, concierge desk and sundry shop.
The HRH Tower boasts 374 rooms -- 359 standard suites, eight spa villas (these open directly to the pool) and seven penthouses on the 16th floor.
With its high standards, each of the suites features a separate living and sleeping area. Views are available of either the iconic Strip or the city and surrounding mountains. Among the amenities are two 40-inch Sony Bravia LCD TVs, ultra luxurious bedding, a desk, a fully stocked minibar and an iPod docking station. The oversized bathrooms have separate showers and cast iron "Tea for Two" tubs.
Guests of the HRH Tower can also take advantage of all the entertainment, gaming, nightlife and dining opportunities that abound on the original casino floor and room towers of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
The Joint is a state-of-the art concert venue with an incomparable lineup of internationally acclaimed musicians and bands, while Vinyl is a more intimate music facility that showcases diverse performances ranging from local bands to the comedy of Andrew Dice Clay.
The resort also has an extraordinary collection of rock 'n' roll memorabilia in frames and shadowboxes that line the walls and hallways throughout the premises.
The main nightclub at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is Body English. There are numerous bars including the popular Center Bar and The Ainsworth, a sports/nightlife-oriented joint from New York City. Plus, on Saturdays and Sundays during the summer months, guests can revel by day at the legendary Rehab pool party.
Some additional restaurants to choose from at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino are Nobu, 35 Steaks + Martini, Culinary Dropout, Pink Taco and the 24-hour coffee shop Mr. Lucky's Café, with its off-menu $7.77 special (a six-ounce steak, three shrimp, mashed potatoes and a salad).
In addition, you can shop to your heart's delight at numerous retail outlets. Visit Love Jones for lingerie and Rocks The Jeweler for some urban bling as well as John Varvatos for menswear and the Hard Rock Store for logo gear.
All in all, the HRH Tower allows you access to the high-energy fun that exists at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino while providing a retreat of refined indulgence.
