This sprawling entertainment complex is a magnet for both locals and tourists thanks to its 5,500-seat Hard Rock Live music venue, 140,000 square feet of slot machines and table games, and dozens of restaurants, bars, and lounges. Channel your inner rock star in one of its 469 guest rooms, outfitted with plush bedding, leather accent furniture, poster-sized black-and-white on-stage photos, and free Fender guitar rentals—but with so much to do, you’re probably not spending much time there. By day, lounge at the extravagant lagoon-style pool featuring 4.5 acres of landscaped palms, a splashy 182-foot waterslide, and private cabanas. In the evening, book a table at classy Council Oak Steaks & Seafood or Kuro for contemporary Japanese, then keep the party going at Center Bar, in the middle of the casino floor, or Piano Hollywood for late-night sing-alongs.
In the Area
The hotel’s suburban location means you’ll have to drive at least 20 minutes to the beach, downtown Fort Lauderdale, and other South Florida attractions—but the good news is there’s plenty to keep you occupied on premises. If you do venture out, the new Burlock Coast Seafare & Spirits is worth the drive to the beachfront Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale, where you can dig in to Florida-sourced dishes like Cedar Key clams and local pork chops. Or, head in the opposite direction for a different kind of adventure at Flamingo Gardens, a 60-acre sanctuary for subtropical plants, champion trees, and native Florida wildlife.
How to Get There
We really enjoyed our visit. For my birthday the front desk sent us wine and treats! The room was nice and clean! The restaurants Kuro and Council Oak were great, specially Kuro. Kuro is over the top food and service but $$$$
The pool is pretty and relaxing with ok service. The only thing I didn't like was I couldn't vape while playing cards. They tried to tell me that Vegas found card counters in the battery so they don't allow it. That is not true since I was just in Vegas and didn't have a problem there.
Service here was awesome. Hated the parking fees and service from attendants but housekeeping was great and timely, front desk agent Mark was fantastic, breakfast was good too. We will come back on our next visit to town.
After searching on various websites for a reasonable price, we stayed for two nights. We was upgraded upon arrival which was a ice surprise. The room was really nice with the best shower ever. Staff were all helpful and friendly. Due to the construction, however, some staff seemed confused about relocation and times available of the amenities. My only complaint is regarding the smoke in the casino. The non smokers slot room had no penny slots. Did not seem fair.
We were in town for a couple of days for business. We thought going by the other Hard Rocks we have stayed in this would be perfect. Seriously disappointed. Considering the premium price of the hotel they do not provide adequate internet to the point we were unable to work at all and even if they did we would be resorted to being stuck our dark room as the amount of construction noise was horrendous. The resort did not have a business centre and could not provide any other solution. We had no other choice but to look elsewhere for somewhere more appropriate who could provide what we needed to work. We have stayed in lesser hotels who had no problem providing suitable working environment.
The hotel although it is in remodeling, they are working so well, that no one notices.
The rooms are spectacular, the attention is specialized, and as a casino is the best.
My recommendations and congratulations to all the human group that works in the hotel.
