The people that work there is very friendly and helpful. They attend to all my needs and request. The purpose of my stay in Hard Rock Hotel is to surprise my long time girlfriend with a proposal. Everything went by smoothly from checking in to checking out. The room environment is the best, prefect atmosphere for my proposal.
