    booked for 4 nights in May. Do they actually enforce this and how so??? :nono:

    can anyone who's stayed there recently provide any insight on this?


    In order to maintain a safe environment, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino prohibits coolers; boxes; bags or other containers for the purpose of transporting food and beverage on property. In addition, all outside food and beverage is also prohibited. Small, personal-sized coolers no larger than 12” x 12” x 12” to house small quantities of medications or kosher food are permitted. Hard Rock Hotel reserves the right to confiscate any items considered a violation of this policy without compensation.

    Very interesting policy! Don't they want guests? Hope they realise the error of their ways quickly and that no other hotels are stupid enough to impose such ideas.
    We ate at the Hard Rock hotel's 24 hour cafe, Mr. Luckys, and were very disappointed with the quality of the food and the time it took to serve us, so before they get insane ideas about no food or food containers being allowed they should provide decent food on time.
    Being off-Strip to start off with is a handicap and Big Brother style rules will not help at all!

    I usually stop at a grocery store right when I get to town.. Get a bottle of vodka, some beer and munchies to have in the room.

    I think what they're serious about stopping are folks bringing everything but a keg in... and some have probably done that. It's no secret that The Hard Rock attracts a younger clientele and that the CVS across the street is packed with many of them loading up for their visit. I've seen multiple, large ice chests loaded up there and brought into the hotel. I don't think they have the time or care about someone bringing back a box of snack-bars, etc... but it had gotten way out of hand.

    Well that makes sense, I definitely won't be lugging a cooler into the hotel lol
    I usually bring up a bottle of vodka, some beer, water, & munchies for late night, etc

    My friend & his wife who are Vegas noobs are staying there there since we're going to see Guns N Roses. I play there quite a bit, but this will be the 1st stay there.

    Maybe if all of the hotels were to remove their heads from the clouds re the extortionate prices their shops charge for alcohol, soda, snacks etc., Walgreens and CVS wouldn't do so well? A 2l. bottle of diet coke was $6 in my hotel, in Walgreens less than half that price! People will not put up with hotel shops ridiculous prices any more.

    I think that's wise... why make an issue outta something when you can easily conceal it. I can promise you the maids aren't out policing this.

    Two things had changed from my stays last year in feb and October, one was now you need a room key to get to your floor on the elevators, and second was a huge cut out sign that said something to the effect of coolers stay on the tour bus. I don't think it's enforced hard core and it will be tough to anyways

    Thanks smartone!

    I'm actually happy the OP brought this to my attention because I didn't read the fine print on my reservation... Wouldn't want to go to my room with my Vonn's bag full of vodka, Jack, cokes, snacks etc. and have the security guards hassle me...

    Agreed. It would be the last time I'd ever be at a particular hotel/casino if they tried to stop me bringing outside food or drinks to my room.

    Every full service hotel has this policy. Use some discretion, don't bring several cases of beer up to your room or host a party for 50 and you will be fine.

    This is policy at many hotels but at Hard Rock I saw this on a sign by the front desk. I think they have a bigger problem with it because the hotel caters to the college age crowd on a tight budget.

    I was there for the Rehab pool party in a cabana and saw many people passing around glass bottles of alcohol they were hiding and pouring into their plastic mugs. There were also empty bottles and beer cans in the bushes and they do not sell those at the pool so people were sneaking them in. I did not like the crowd at all - mostly male, very trashy, and acting like gangsters. The pool parties on the strip are cleaner and have better atmospheres.

    Was about to say this. I've never had anyone at the Cosmo hassle me. I always for to Walgreens for snacks and a bottle of whiskey for the room. I brought left overs back from dinner as well as Pin Up Pizza. So they aren't harassing people on the ANY OUTSIDE food and bev.
