It will get you 10% off at the Kitchen restaurant and when you spend $200 at the Hard Rock Cafe you'll get $20 on the card. The card is $24.99 and once you activate it you get a $20 credit. When I confirmed with the employee I said, so I pay $25 and get $20 credit, plus spend $200 and get another $20 credit on the card right? She hesitated and said 'yes, that's right'. So 'if' your dd or ds wannabe rockstar teenager wants a hard rock hotel souvenier AND you eat enough times their to = $200 you would get a $20 bonus to spend.

She also confirmed you get no room upgrades or discounts on cabana rentals. They use to but that has stopped. Sooooo if your a big fan of Hard Rock Hotel chains throughout the world it might be fun/worth it to have this card but if you only plan on this hard rock hotel, they don't offer the same perks b/c it's part of Loew's...

So thanks for all the info. Hope that helps some who are considering this All Access Pass and Happy Valentine's day all

no.
hrh is not part of the loews hotels and you first program.

people that stay on club level can receive a discount for the cabanas.
you do not have to have the all access card for that perk, just stay on club level.

So this lady on the phone says 'you get all the same benefits except no subscription to Rolling Stones magazine, no backpack and no $20 credit when you sign up. I go 'what? The other lady didn't say anything about rolling stones magazine and backpack?' Then she says 'you also get a complimentary room upgrad 'IF AVAILABLE' and complimentary late check out and your 10% off at the Kitchen and Hard Rock Cafe'. And I say 'FREE UPGRADE IF AVAILABLE?' The other lady on the phone said they do not offer upgrades. She said they discountinued that practice and the new lady (I like her) said no, it's just that they no longer offer discounts on the cabana rentals, but you still get the upgrade 'if available'.

So did I AMAZE YOU ALL??? DID I HUH HUH?
the rolling stone mag is not really free.
you get one and then need to subscribe.
of course, this might have changed since october. just saying...

it depends on when you check in if you can receive a free upgrade.
depends on availability.
in the past at the hrh at UO, you could upgrade from a garden view to pool view.

i've stayed at hrh over 20 times and have seen changes over the years.

i believe it was about 2 years ago that when guests checked in to hrh, they would receive a "free" all access card.
that card was a tad different from the one you can buy online.



isn't it aggravating to call the place and get different answers each time.

i would suggest that you write down the name of the person you speak with so when you do check in, you can mention your info came from the front desk.


i'm assuming you have been calling the hotel directly for the 2 different versions of benefits for all access card holders.

it is best to call and work with the hotel directly instead of a reservation line.

Ok, so I went to hardrock.com and checked out the AAP. It looks like you get a $20 card for joining and a few other perks, including the upgrade if available. So it looks like you can use the credit towards food and merchandise. That would only make it $5, so it doesn't seem like such a bad deal, especially since you get a few other discounts. I think I might get one. I didn't see how long it's good for though.

I don't have the packet with me but I do remember seeing that mentioned $50 off cabana rentals and free room upgrades. But not sure if that was actually in the packet or on this forum. I'll have to go through the packet tonight when I get home and I'll let you know what it acutally says.
Did you sign up online?

It seems to me that what you actually get depends on who you talk to and when you are actually there. Before I go I'm going to try to get a late check out (which I heard you could get with the All Access card) or a discount on a cabana. If they say no then I'm going to try again at check in. I guess it doesn't hurt to try and it seems like there are so many different stories that their rules and perks vary. At any rate the card does only end up costing $5 and you do get a free pin and backpack. I already got mine. So I think it's worth it.

Your right. The story seems to change depending on who your talking to. That was the gist of SharkyGoddess's issues with her AAP

Anyhow, $5 for a pin and backback sounds good to me And we will certainly be spending more than $20 at the Kitchen so it's a deal for us as well

How long did it take to get your goodies? We are leaving March 12th. Which is just 3 weeks away???
