    I'm thinking of booking a night at the Hard Rock. How likely is it to get an upgrade there with or without the 20 bucks? What about getting 2 queens? There is a price difference between the two, so I'm trying to make the best choice. Thinking of going there July 3rd, a Tuesday, so not sure how busy it would be? thanks

    I stay there a lot and have gotten used to just booking the Corner Suites in the HRH Tower... without going up to the Specialty Suites, it's considered the best. I like them cause they're by far the quietest. I don't mind the noise of the property when I wanna party, but I usually have business in LV as well and need a decent night's sleep. Sooooo... I'm not real familiar with the upgrade sandwich trick at the Hard Rock.

    I did look at their website and the room prices across the board for July 3rd are very reasonable, so it doesn't look like there's much upward pressure on the room prices. I've read a lot of reviews of the Hard Rock on Yelp, Trip Advisor, etc. and a lot of folks indicate being upgraded to a pool view or better room. The Casino Tower is the most affordable and the rooms are all nicely re-done, but have pretty standard, "old-school" bathrooms. The Paradise Tower is a big step up as it's only a couple years old and in great shape, but it's quite a walk from the casino area... though very well located for the pool. The HRH Tower are all mini-suites, if you will, and the nicest of the 3 towers, but still very affordable. As far as queens? Is it just you? If so, some like to sleep in one bed and leave their stuff conveniently out on the other bed. Me.. I like the biggest bed possible... and the Hard Rock has some comfy beds!

    I think in general July 4th falling mid-week will make it a little less crowded than normal for Las Vegas. It's almost guaranteed to be a cooker though.

    I'm going with a platonic male friend, so each of us having our own bed is pretty essential in my book. :) Thanks, Smartone! You're our VMB HRH Go-to guy!

    Just saw this one on another site:

    "Just had a successful tip trick at the HRH on a quick one-nighter. Had originally booked a paradise tower queen, sandwhiched a $20 and got upgraded to the HRH tower in a pool view suite. Hadn't satyed at the HRH in years."

    I do love the Hard Rock and love the new improvements that've recently been made both in the physical property and the employee morale. I found it interesting that a recent post on VMB asked posters to list the properties theyve stayed at. I found numerous regular posters who generally "bag" on the HRH didn't even indicate they'd ever stayed there. Hmmmmm... of course, they'll probably say they DID gamble there and don't need to actually sleep somewhere to know they don't like it.

    I hope you have a great trip BlueSkadoo!!!
