I called Marketing yesterday to place my reservation for my November dates instead of thru my host (he's on vacation) and so was given the standard speech about resort-fee, security charge and now emphatically, "No Outside Food or Beverages may be brought into the hotel". It ought to be interesting to watch how well that goes over at the Hard Rock! The pavement between the HRH and the CVS across the street is well-worn from the people returning with cases of beer, water, Gatorade, etc. I'm not aware of this previously, but also have been reserving via e-mail to the host for a long time. The roller-bags coming in are about to get a whole lot heavier I suspect!
