Hard Rock's Website Turns It Up a Notch
A reader who just happens to work as a new media specialist let us know that the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has unveiled a new website that includes constant streaming of music, an RSS feed and links to Digg and Del.icio.us sites. But the big change is video that allows you to see inside a Hard Rock experience which is fictional but you know, this is Vegas so it could happen.
What we saw in the quick takes video was two girls getting close by the pool, then one of them ends up giving a dude a massage. The video cuts quickly to the girls getting ready then chugging champagne in the hallways.
Other clips involve gambling, a concert, Rehab at the pool, a possible threesome and of course, a pillow fight between the two girls. So much for our theory that Morgans will de-sexualize the Hard Rock.
Here's a quick take of what else is going on at hip hotels across the U.S.
· TMZ is reporting that Britney Spears wants a job as a bartender at the Viceroy Santa Monica. Please god no. We actually like this place.
· Gramercy Park and the Bowery Hotel get reviewed by the cranky WSJ.
· The Benjamin Hotel in NYC has an anti-insomnia amenities arsenal that includes a sleep concierge, special pillow menu, and a menu of sleep-inducing foods.
· The Raleigh Hotel is offering two nights in an ocean view room with breakfast and free valet for $495. Use code "Grab a Pal" when booking.
