LAS VEGAS, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Unlike anything seen in Vegas or around the world, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas is opening HRH Tower - an all-suite tower located at the south end of the famous Hard Rock property - on December 28. HRH Tower includes 359 "standard" suites, eight spa villas opening directly to the pool areas, and seven penthouse suites on the 16th floor offering panoramic views of the iconic Vegas strip and mountains.
HRH Tower is targeting high-end, luxury guests who want a sophisticated rock 'n' roll experience with extra privacy and a more refined atmosphere. To accommodate these guests, the tower will boast its own VIP entrance and check-in; will have direct access to the new casino space; 25,000 sq. ft. luxury Reliquary spa; and Vanity nightclub.
The HRH Tower Suites is part of the widely-publicized $750 million expansion that broke ground in 2007. As part of the expansion, the Hard Rock Hotel welcomes the addition of approximately 860 guest rooms, including the recent opening of the Paradise Tower, a new 17-story guest wing located at the north end of the property.
"The creativity, innovation and overall thought that went into not only the new HRH Tower Suites, but the entire property expansion and renovation as a whole, is unlike anything I've seen around the world," said Randy Kwasniewski, president and chief operating officer of Morgans Hotel Group Las Vegas. "We're looking forward to welcoming guests in the New Year and hope they share my same enthusiasm for this new Las Vegas paradise we've created for them."
Setting itself apart from any other all-suite tower in Sin City, the new HRH Tower "standard suites" offer a lustrous room product with an integrated wet bar, sitting area, and suite bathroom with cast iron tubs. Each suite in the Tower includes a Sound Matters Sound Bar - an AMX 12" Touch Panel music system with iPod dock and includes over 2,000 HRH owned songs and playlists for guests personalization and enjoyment, as well as two 40" Sony Bravia LCD TV with DVD players.
HRH Tower will house the property's new nightclub, Vanity; new spa and health club, Reliquary; more than 30,000 sq. ft. of new casino space; and three new restaurants. HRH and Paradise Towers will be finalized with the new pools and Skybar in the first half of 2010.
"This tower is a major milestone in our expansion and moves our brand into another level of decadence, while maintaining the service our guests have come to expect," said Phil Shalala, Hard Rock's Chief Marketing Officer. "Our goal was to stay true to property's innovative and trend-setting style while creating an edgy and decadent rock 'n' roll experience not offered anywhere else in Las Vegas."
The entire renovation is slated for completion in the spring of 2010 and has created more that 1,200 jobs for Vegas. In addition to approximately 860 new guest rooms from the new HRH and Paradise Towers, the property has also added approximately 60,000 square feet of meeting and convention space and more than 30,000 sq. ft. of casino space.
The HRH Tower officially opens on December 28, as well as Reliquary Spa and Vanity nightclub opening to ring in the New Year.

7 Penthouse Suites
The seven Penthouse Suites include: Infinity, Nirvana, Provocateur, Platinum, Ultra Lounge, Stones, and Sex & Pistols. The Penthouse Suites range from one to two master bedroom/bathroom chamber accommodations. The bathrooms include Grohe bath fixtures including rain showerheads and six handheld shower sprays. Suites are decorated with various textures including black crocodile leather, wood planks, patent leather walls, marble floors, opaque glass walls and more.
Some are more elaborate than others; the Nirvana Suite for example is designed with a Moroccan flair. The entrance leads to an outside beach area with a private plunge pool and two enormous four poster draped daybeds. In one of the master bedrooms of The Provocateur Suite is equipped with a seductive interactive projection system built in to an enormous bed that projects onto the wall behind the bed and onto the bed itself.
8 Spa Villa Suites
In each of the eight Spa Villa Suites (two of which are duplex suites), the great room is highlighted by a floating coffer ceiling which extends above the "Spa Bed" and leads to the outdoor private patio. The patio with lounge seating, fire pit and plunge pool provides a tranquil sanctuary. Should one choose, the private patios then lead out to the main Hard Rock pool area. Each Spa Villa has an area where in-suite spa services can be rendered.
The centerpiece of the new nightclub, a multi-million dollar chandelier lit from within by LED lights that can change color and even broadcast images, overlooks the entire dance floor. The 14,000 square-foot venue features two marble bars, a sunken dance floor, 50 intimate VIP booths, an outdoor terrace including five cabanas with direct access to a sky bar and a ladies' lounge that will truly impress. The ladies lounge will include six individual vanity stations and a full length three-way mirror with staff on-hand to fix broken nails, style hair and spruce up makeup.
The centerpiece of the 25,000 square foot spa is the Roman Bath for guests to be seen, socialize and commiserate with private cabana-type alcoves and lounge space. The Bath House has capabilities to turn the space into an entertainment area for small parties and group functions. It has 21 treatment rooms, a private studio for pole dancing lessons, a fitness center and of course the property's famous and expanded Brannon Salon.
Where the old Joint used to house rock 'n' roll bands since 1995, the Hard Rock has transformed this area and now encompasses more than 30,000 sq. ft. of new casino space. The area includes a slot bar, blackjack tables, High Limit Lounge, as well as the Lux Bar. The casino space is where guests will walk through to get to the new HRH Tower Reliquary Spa and Vanity Nightclub, and is adjacent to the VIP entrance welcoming all HRH Tower guests into the casino.
