Cons

  • Rates can spike substantially on weekends

  • Fee for in-room Wi-Fi 
  • Bathroom layout and glass doors may compromise privacy

Bottom Line

The upscale Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Biloxi is a hip and stylish casino resort that can be a ton of fun for couples and groups who like to party. Public spaces resemble a rock music museum, with colorfully illuminated displays of memorabilia. There’s as much to do as see, with a casino, full-service spa and salon, concert hall, disco, huge outdoor pool, and nine restaurants. The 479 rooms are spacious, and modern, with distinctive designs that include large walk-in showers and beautiful twin vanities in either granite or marble. But as a party-oriented hotel, things can get a little loud at times. And while rates are generally reasonable, they can spike on weekends. Travelers might want to comparison shop with the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino Biloxi next door, which can offer lower rates.

Scene

Rock-theme casino resort filled with memorabilia, gamblers, and partiers

The entrance to this casino resort houses various music memorabilia, encased in glass and illuminated by neon lights, reflecting the rock theme

There’s no mistaking the dominant “rock on” party theme of this casino resort. It starts with the huge suspended guitar outside and the rock lyrics, “Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends,” over the front entrance. The multi-story lobby is full of memorabilia encased in glass and illuminated with red, green, and blue neon. Guitars, rock-star outfits, records, and photos are displayed as if in a museum. Portraits of Elvis, Jagger, and Springsteen hang behind the wood-and-marble front desk. More rock-themed displays appear throughout the colorful hotel, including the casino and Hard Rock Live concert hall, where an impressive lineup of national touring acts performs. This resort has a fun vibe intended to appeal to couples and groups who want to gamble a bit and party a lot. The spacious pool with a swim-up bar and private cabanas overlooking the Gulf is especially enticing in warm weather.

Location

On the Gulf of Mexico, adjacent to the Beau Rivage Resort

Map of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Biloxi

The Hard Rock is situated along the Gulf of Mexico next to the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino (a six-minute walk). Public beach access is about a 10-minute walk away, and some restaurants are within a three- to five-minute walk. The Mississippi Coast Coliseum and Convention Center, Jefferson Davis Presidential Library, Keesler Air Force Base, and Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College are within a 10- to 15-minute drive. Gulfport is about a 20-minute car trip, and Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport is a 25-minute drive. Driving times to Mobile (east) and New Orleans (west) are 55 minutes and 90 minutes, respectively on Interstate 10, which is only a few minutes' drive from the hotel.   

Rooms

Hip and spacious rooms with distinctive design and modern decor 

Spacious themed suites, including the Sky Suite, provide ample lounge space and flamboyant design; the Sky Suite has panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico

Rooms at this Hard Rock Hotel are split between two sections -- the 325-room Royal Tower and the newer, 154-room Platinum Tower that opened in early 2014 -- and decor varies between these. Standard Rooms in both towers are spacious (400 square feet) with distinct, modern designs. Royal King Rooms have dark wood furniture, including long, narrow desks with two high-back chairs placed below wall-mounted, 42-inch flat-screen TVs facing the beds. Light gray carpeting and white walls soften the look. Twin granite vanities are part of semi-circle “bars” that act as room dividers separating bedroom and bathroom areas. Walk-in showers are spacious and high-end with brown-and-beige tile, rainfall showerheads, and clear glass doors that are partially visible from the bedrooms. 

Platinum Queen Rooms have similar walk-in showers setup, but granite vanities are replaced by brown marble twin vanities that face windows (as do the showers). Decor is also punched up a notch with bold orange accents, and brown sofas provide seating under floor-to-ceiling windows. Standard amenities in all rooms include electronic safes, minibars, magnifying mirrors, robes, and iHome docking stations. In-room Wi-Fi comes with a fee. 

Seventy-five suites are available as well, ranging from 900 to 1,400 square feet; these include soaking tubs, ample lounge space, and more flamboyant design such as photo murals of leather corsets. Views vary by tower and location, but generally include gulf, city, or pool views. Rooms are generally quiet but noise can be heard from partiers in neighboring rooms at times. Only the Platinum Tower is no smoking. The Royal Tower has designated smoking rooms.
