While philosophers agree that home is where the heart is, a hotel is generally known as the Island of Misfit Organs. Accommodate your appendix and aorta alike with today's Groupon: for $129, you get a one-night stay in a standard room, tax included, at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, offered by Paramount Travel Worldwide (up to a $446.88 value). This Groupon does not include the resort fee of $16.80 per night.
The four-star Hard Rock Hotel & Casino exudes entertainment with 17 floors of rooms, on-site attractions, and a central location two miles from the Strip. The moodily lit, modernly decorated standard double-queen and king rooms come preinstalled with plasma TVs, a view of either the pool or the mountains, and a bed that must be defeated in a game of seven-sheet stud before allowing guests to enter. Two miles from McCarran International Airport, the hotel can be the first hop or last stop of a day or night spent traversing the closely packed attractions, including the ever-glowing Strip, the Liberace Museum, and the vibrant downtown area. Guests can call boredom’s bluff with on-site attractions that include a casino, live music, restaurants, a nightclub, a full-service spa, a fitness center, and an outdoor swimming pool.
Automotive accompaniments are similarly pampered with amenities such as valet service and complimentary parking, and ruffled shirts are kept starched and left socks are kept lucky with in-house dry-cleaning and laundry services. The concierge desk and 24-hour room and front-desk services round out the rolling boulder of hotel features on which only the coolest species of moss may take root.
