Founded on the belief that music makes people feel good, the Hard Rock Hotels group – which boasts 24 hotels, excluding the 17 outposts currently under construction – has been infusing hospitality with a hearty dose of rock 'n' roll since 1971. The company says that its existence in the travel sphere originated out of necessity: Hard Rock guests love to play hard, but as the festivities die down and the sun rises, even rockers need a place to crash. These distinguished hotels – with their themed decor, fine dining facilities, dazzling casinos and in-house night clubs – strive to provide the ideal after-hours locale. Plus, every time you stay at one of these upscale properties (found everywhere from Asia to the Caribbean), you can rack up points through the Hard Rock Rewards program. The 14 Hard Rock properties that made the U.S. News Best Hotels in the USA, Best Hotels in Europe and Best Hotels in Mexico rankings lists appear below.

    Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando
    Orlando, FL
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    Of course Orlando, Florida, has a Hard Rock resort; this brand is almost a theme park in and of itself. The resort proudly touts more than $1 million worth of music memorabilia from the likes of Elton John, Elvis Presley and Eric Clapton – and that's just the short list. And while you're here, you can create your own music thanks to The Sound of Your Stay program, which allows you to borrow a Fender guitar (plus amps and headphones) for the duration of your stay. Though the property offers its own forms of nightlife, a stay here will also put you within walking distance of the restaurants and clubs found at Universal Orlando Resort's CityWalk Plaza. Lodgers vouch for the star-quality treatment that you'll receive in the resort; however, others lament the expensive rooms and amenities. Accommodations all feature iHome clock radios, Keurig coffee makers, free Wi-Fi access and flat-screen televisions. And for an extra dose of R&R, plan on relaxing poolside in a cabana while the kids are kept entertained at Camp Lil' Rock. For most travelers, the best part of staying in the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando is being near the city's best activities. You can walk to Universal's Islands of Adventure and the Universal Orlando Resort.

    The Hard Rock Hotel Cancun is the place to stay if you're looking to live it up like a rock star in the middle of Cancun, Mexico's Hotel Zone. With seven bars on the property, you certainly won't find yourself lacking for entertainment. The rocker attitude continues into this Hard Rock's six restaurants, most of which do not require reservations or a suit jacket, for that matter. Even the rooms and suites seem like they're straight out of "MTV Cribs," with each containing a two-person hydro spa tub, a satellite TV, a balcony and a stocked minibar. But just because your bedroom features loads of perks meant for adults doesn't mean that the Hard Rock isn't kid-friendly: Guests enjoy the ability to drop the youngsters off at the Hard Rock Roxity Kids Club before getting pampered with a massage at Rock Spa. You can always hit the lagoon-style pool or beach together later. And if you came to Cancun to take advantage of its flowing fairways, you'll be happy to know that the hotel staff can arrange tee times and lessons at the nearby 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Design course at the Riviera Cancun Golf Club. Regardless of how you choose to spend your vacation here, you'l enjoy all meals and drinks, nightly entertainment and daily fitness classes, games and more thanks to the resort's all-inclusive rates.

    Despite the off-Strip location on Paradise Road, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is great for young and aspiring rock stars. Swim-up blackjack tables near the ever-popular Rehab Beach Club and the casino's 24-hour Center Bar help create a party-centric vibe. But some recent travelers offer mixed reviews on the staff: Some said they encountered poorly trained or uninterested workers, while others said their experience with the hotel's employees was wonderful. Lodgers were more complimentary of the accommodations, which feature stocked minbars, plasma TVs, iPod docking stations and luxury linens. Recent guests recommended booking a room in the HRH All-Suite Tower or Paradise Tower, as the Casino Tower is on the older side. Many also praised this Hard Rock outpost's eight restaurants, which dish up everything from steaks to tacos to sushi.

    • Free Parking

    • Free WiFi

    The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is about 10 miles southwest of Fort Lauderdale Beach in Hollywood, Florida – a fair distance from the ocean. But despite a lack of the busy shores, this sprawling complex is sure to keep you entertained: The casino keeps guests on their toes, and the six on-site restaurants, which serve everything from Chinese- and Vietnamese-inspired cuisine to dry-aged steaks and fresh seafood, are sure to appease a variety of tastes. And with a spa, a self-guided music memorabilia tour and a lagoon-style pool, the resort offers plenty of options for those looking to steer clear of the casino floor. That said, some travelers do complain about the tight security detail throughout the property and the cigarette smoke smell that permeates along the gaming floor. Should you need a break from high rolling, the contemporary guest rooms provide a quiet respite. Accommodations are appointed with minibars, flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and the brand's hallmark Hard Rock musical accoutrements, such as loaner guitars.

    Travelers say this Hard Rock is tons of fun. Guests loved the free drink of choice provided at check-in, as well as the music-themed decor and memorabilia featured throughout the property.

Outside the digs, lodgers will find an outdoor pool, a fitness center and plenty of on-site entertainment.

There are also four dining options to choose from, including the 24-hour Fuel American Grill, as well as the three-story Lobby Bar. While guests were impressed with the facilities, some visitors said the service was a mixed bag: There were a handful of lodgers who reported impeccable service, but others felt some staff members were distracted and aloof.

    "Niche" is an important word to remember when considering a stay at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa. For instance, there are probably too many whirring slot-machine lights and too much casino-floor ambiance for either families or business travelers to be truly comfortable at this hotel. However, many of the younger crowds that have passed through this Hard Rock property were more than pleased. In addition to praising the friendly staff, previous guests speak highly of the gorgeous rooms. All accommodations come with flat-screen TVs, docking stations compatible with iPad and iPhones, coffee makers and Egyptian cotton sheets. But if you have the money to burn, consider booking the Spa King Suite to enjoy floor-to-ceiling windows and an oversized bathroom with a jetted tub. While here, you'll also have access to a spa, three pools and various nightlife venues, not to mention a long list of dining options that serve everything from steaks and seafood to pizzas. Recent travelers warn self-parking spaces are limited, so you may have to shell out $25 per day for valet parking. Staying at this casino hotel puts you less than 7 miles southeast of Tampa, Florida's Busch Gardens and 7 miles northeast of the Florida Aquarium.
