The Hard Rock chain began as simple casual dining restaurants founded by Isaac Tigrett and Peter Morton. Although most people think of the Hard Rock Cafes, hotels and casinos as being symbols of Americana, the first one was built in London, England in 1971. The cafes did not really take off until the restaurants began displaying vintage rock and roll memorabilia, beginning with a guitar donated by Eric Clapton in London. In 2010, there were Hard Rocks all over the world, including France, Germany, Japan, Singapore and Thailand. Hard Rock International has changed hands over the years, but is now owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

The suite tower has its own valet and spa, and all rooms come with touch-panel juke box system. The Paradise tower has more standard rooms, a penthouse and a pool villa.
