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.

    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.
