Jun 21, 2010, 13:00 ET from Vegas Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

LAS VEGAS, June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Paradise is just a click away.  The final touch to Vegas Hard Rock Hotel & Casino's $750 million expansion was added this week when the trendsetting property unveiled its sleek new website, www.hardrockhotel.com.  The new site establishes an online presence that mirrors the cutting-edge and innovative design of the new Hard Rock Hotel, including the HRH all-suite Tower. The new site surpasses other Las Vegas hotels and casinos in both design and functionality.

"This property-wide expansion has been years in the making and while we spared no expense on the physical features and amenities, we knew it was important to give guests an upgraded online experience," said Vegas Hard Rock Hotel & Casino CMO Phil Shalala.

The site takes the online experience to the next level with engaging navigation, an enhanced on-site booking calendar, and full screen property images to help visitors experience the Hard Rock before they even arrive in Vegas.  Key site content that Hard Rock fans have come to expect – special web-only deals, concert and show listings, nightly party information – also received a facelift and update to be more user friendly.

Adds Shalala, "The website is where customers get their initial impression of the property.  Our new site immerses users in the new decadent and luxurious atmosphere of the Hard Rock Hotel."

With this in mind, the highly interactive site embodies the Hard Rock Hotel by taking users through every venue and amenity of the newly renovated Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, from the new rooms and suites, to the state of the art music venues, to the expansive convention facilities.

Designed by ZAAZ, a premiere interactive agency, additional new features include ways to:

  • Plan: An interactive calendar makes it easier than ever before for guests to select and adjust their stay.
  • Save: Continually updated specials, packages and promotions are prominently displayed with the ability to filter; ensuring guests always find the best deal for their needs.
  • VIP: Guests can use the site to sign up for the Rockstar Players Club, events and party guest lists, newsletters, and cabana reservations for S.K.A.M., REHAB and Relax Mondays.
  • Socialize: Hard Rock Hotel's social media channels now come together in one Social Feed, allowing guests to connect to the latest happenings in real-time and share their own experience.
