Designed as if it were the estate of a former rock star, Hard Rock Hotel features a priceless collection of rock memorabilia. The 650-room hotel showcases the mission style of a true “Hotel California,” where “you can check out but you can never leave.” The themes of “Love All Serve All,” “All is One” and “Take Time to Be Kind” echo throughout the hotel and its team members.

The place to see and be seen at Hard Rock Hotel is at the pool, where guests are immersed in sound and water. With a sand beach, water slide, hot tubs, interactive fountains and a sand volleyball court, the pool is the centerpiece of the hotel. An underwater sound system ensures that guests never miss a beat during their stay.

Hard Rock's free all-encompassing music amenity program gives guests access to experiences they cannot get anywhere else. The Sound of Your Stay program features Picks, a guitar “room service” boasting a menu of electric guitars, Tracks, a free playlist assembled by music pros and celebrities, and Mix, a way for guests to get in touch with their inner DJ.

Dining experiences at the hotel range from the new American cuisine served in The Kitchen to the famed Palm Restaurant and the ultra-hip Velvet Bar. Velvet Sessions, Orlando's only rock 'n roll cocktail party and concert, takes place in the hotel's lobby on the last Thursday of the month. On select dates throughout the year, the hotel features the acoustic show Velvet Unplugged and its new Wine Riffs dinner series, bringing together food, wine and music in an imaginative blend.
