City of Dreams - The Countdown

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice room near other casinos and other attractions. Friendly staff that was able to help with all questions.

Part of City of Dreams complex, the reception staff is friendly and welcoming enough. The room itself is average sized but the bathroom and the separate lavatory is starkly decorated ie. just gray walls and seems like they put no effort into smaller details in terms of design. Worse still is the swimming pool locker room (or the absence of it thereof). you are provided with a sparsely built toilet with no separate changing rooms and dedicated showers. MAYBE there's another fully equipped shower and changing room in the gym area but I did not venture there so it remains unknown. You certainly do not feel like a 'rockstar' staying there. REEDEMING feature: 1. Two welcome drinks and F&B discount coupons you can use at the Hard Rock Cafe. / 2. Priced relatively affordable for hotels on the Strip. There are better deals out there.

We enjoy coming to the Hard Rock, has everything you need. Free shuttles, plenty of restaurants, gym, pool and of course great staff.

Had a really good time while staying at the Hard Rock. We were a little confused at first by the whole City of Dreams thing, but after figuring it out, just means there are 3 hotels all connected by a casino and shops (the Hard Rock is one of them). We arrived at 16:00 and they did not have a non-smoking room available for another hour, which is a bit strange, so we had to wait around, but they did extend our check out time until 13:00 the following day (only stayed 1 night). Not too sure about the location as we only stayed around the Hard Rock and the Venetian, but everything you need is within the area, i.e. clubs, casinos, pool, food, shops, etc.

Hotel is fantastic, as it says,at Hard Roch Cafe you feel like you are a star with all the lights, nice music, good looking staff at reception, and floor with your favorit star pictures at the wall.....we love it. The good thing is that hotel also offers a suttle bus to go to anywhere...if you want to do a tour around the city, you can do it... Breakfast is very expensive, so we went outside to have it, but we had lunch at the hotel, wich was very good and price was ok.

The location is perfect - across the street from Venetian. Very convenient.There are courtesy shuttles to and from other hotels as well as the airport and the ferry station. Rooms are quite small in US standards but are very comfortable and modern. Safe, too. You cannot operate the elevator without scanning your room key first.

is very good choice for family holiday staying ,but the check in/out time is problems ,too late for in(3pm) and too early for out(11am) . is not suitable for 1 day trip and not worth it.
