    Yep... I fly in on Labor Day for 3 days and am excited to see the change! I've been there for 3 brief visits since the old Center Bar closed in late June and the walled-off construction area is considerable for that section of the property. Heard a lot of guests grumbling about the noise and upheaval such works creates. I've also heard plenty of long time Hard Rock patrons proclaiming they're screwing up the one good thing left from the Hard Rock's glory days of the late 90's and early 2000's.

    When I was there about 10 days ago, they'd pulled back the construction wall from the area closest to the front doors/registration area and I like the openness that raising the floor seemed to provide. I agree with PP... the carpet is hideous, but it's that typical casino carpet that someone could be murdered on and you really don't have to clean it up cause it hides stains well. While I suppose the Hard Rock continues with financial issues, I like that there ALWAYS seems to be some sort or remodeling or tinkering going on around the property to keep it fresh. Some properties wear their financial issues on their sleeves by breaking out the duck tape or just closing areas in disrepair, thereby hastening their demise... I've yet to see the Hard Rock do anything of the sort. If it is sold sometime soon, the new buyer will at least be getting a property that's been well maintained and updated.

    I also hear the new bar will be staffed with uber hot females... which is OK with me, but I feel a bit bad for some of the bartenders I know who've been there for many, many years that are worried about being placed at other property bars with less business.
