Hard Rock Biloxi Rises Again
Two years after Hurricane Katrina dealt its devastating blow to the Gulf Coast and the scheduled opening of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Biloxi, the Mississippi destination resort finally opened its doors earlier this month.
Following an extensive renovation and rebuild, the property now boasts 318 guestrooms and suites in the striking purple and white hotel tower. All 26 suites feature views overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and the Hard Rock pool deck. The iconic 112-foot neon Peavey guitar, a traditional Hard Rock symbol which withstood the force of the hurricane, still stands, welcoming guests.
Upon entry, guests are greeted with a two-story memorabilia display including celebrity clothing, awards, instruments, posters, photos and more. Recovered pieces of memorabilia, including Johnny Cash's guitar found by a local citizen and returned to the Hard Rock, will be featured in the separate Katrina memorial located on the entrance wall to the casino.
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Biloxi is owned and operated by Premier Entertainment Biloxi LLC. Among the resort's feature attractions is Rise Lounge, the hotel's top floor lounge from nightlife entrepreneur Rande Gerber and brother Scott, founders of the Gerber Group.
The casino features 1,445 slot machines, 50 table games and a poker room. The Rock Spa, a full-service Aveda Concept Spa, will offer services such as facials, massages, body wraps and manicures/pedicures.
