Thanks for the prompt reply. Hopefully it will be the same at HRH. Slow and free will do!!!!

yea, it became a perk for Loews hotel guests many months ago.
always was free in the lobby and by the pool, then rooms were added either end of last year or first of this year.
i can't remember as i haven't ever paid for it.

Hi scoobydooby, we recently stayed at HRH and we were club level but from what I understand wi-fi is free regardless of what room type you have. We had 3 devices and they all worked at the same time no problems. My kids were watching YouTube clips of rides etc and it worked fine.

You shouldn't have a problem mate ;-)

When did they start the free wifi? That's great news!

We were at Portofino the first week of June. We had free wifi. It allows up to 4 people per room.

Is this as new as the website makes it sound?

BE A CLOSET ROCKER WITH PICKS.

Satisfaction. Thatís what a luxury brand experience should embody. And what could be more satisfying than a world-class Fender guitar delivered to your room? Hard Rock and Fender have teamed up to offer a uniquely authentic rock-and-roll experience and serious guitars are the new in-room amenity. Are you ready?

Guests may choose from 20 different awesome Fender guitars including legendary Stratocasters, classic Telecasters and a few special surprises. We also offer bass guitars for those of you who love throwing down a funky baseline. Plus, we provide an amp and a pair of headphones to ensure maximum sound for you and zero noise complaints to us.

The best part? There's no charge or time limit on use (but just to be sure you don't go off on your next world tour with our guitar, a $1,000 credit card deposit is required when checking a guitar out). So grab that Fender axe youíve always wanted to try, channel Stevie Ray or Clapton and shred for as long as you're staying at Hard Rock Hotel.

I remember reading about it before so my guess is no. I think it was in 2012 that I first saw it (last time we were at HRH)

Be sure to find the terms and conditions on the HRH site. There's a hefty cc hold put on a cc, for instance.

The offer was there in July 2013.

Sound of Your Stay- Guests can borrow an expensive guitar for use during their stays.

You don't need the exact room numbers, just request "deluxe queen room with sleeper sofa."
