Even if you don't gamble, even if you don't party, even if you don't stay in hotels... the Hard Rock Hotel is still worth a visit, just to see all the great memorabilia inside, plus a gigantic Fender Stratocaster.
(There's also a giant Gibson Les Paul across the way at the restaurant... but we won't hold that against them. Apologies to the Gibson fans I've just alienated.)
In natural finish, rosewood fingerboard, white pickguard, both righty and lefty, depending on how you view it - but I digress.
Pair that with the glamorous sexiness of today's knees-in-the-mouth jets landing just a few hundred yards away, and by God, you've got a noisy, screaming, cramped up winner!
The stuff I loved most included Hendrix' clothes, and Prince's, and a signed Bruce Tele. Not the Esquire, that would just be too much.
I haven't been back in a while to see if the outstandingly cool decorations like the sax chandelier pictured below are still intact since the expansion and re-do of the casino a few years ago... but I hope so, because everyone loves the Pink Taco.

|Fine, fine, here's your Les Paul. Actually, Les was an amazing talent to which we owe a lot.|
Update - as reported on August 31, 2017, the Gibson sign is being dismantled and moved to the Neon Museum. Thanks for the timely info, 60gregma!
