I paid €26 for the room!! I just thought I’d mention that at the very beginning. I booked the Hard Rock using the HotelTonight iPad app, a great booking app that does have some unbelievable deals. Rooms go on sale at noon for that night so if you’re looking for that day’s best bargains you need to be checking around midday before the best deals are snapped up. Even when you add in the resort fee the total for the night came to €39. You’d be doing well to get a hostel in Dublin for that price.
Like the Palms, The Hard Rock is located off the strip, and is a short ride Harman corner on the strip. The Hard Rock attracts an interesting crowd so even if you don’t venture to the strip much there’s plenty to see and do within the resort itself.
There’s two new tower blocks added to the original hotel in recent years but as you can expect if you’re paying next to nothing for the room they’re not going to put you in the shiny new suites. My room was in Casino tower on the 10th floor in the older part of the building. The room was modern and funky and looked like it had been renovated recently. There was nothing exceptional about the room either but it was all perfectly fine.[print_gllr id=279]
No complaints here, the room was well kept and I couldn’t fault the housekeeping.
No complaints about the staff I came in contact with either, all were very polite and helpful.
Wifi access is included as part of the resort fee and allows connection of several devices at once. I was getting decent steady speeds at all times. Some of the public areas don’t have full coverage though, such as Mr. Luckies restaurant, which I found a little strange.
The Hard Rock Hotel is usually a great place to stay and it didn’t disappoint this time either. The combination of eclectic guests and staff make it an interesting place for people watching and there always seems to be a good atmosphere about the place. And when you get a bargain for the night like I did, you can’t complain!
