Welcome to the 200-room Hard Rock Hotel on world famous Daytona Beach – it’s big it’s bold and it’s a bonafide hit with visitors!
The guest rooms range from 350 to 790 square feet, and each includes Hard Rock’s The Sound of Your Stay music amenity program that lets guests play vinyl records or jam out on a Fender guitar in their room.
The hotel also has the Rock Spa & Salon, the Body Rock fitness center, an oceanfront pool with underwater sound system, Jacuzzi, private cabanas and a kid’s guitar-shaped splash zone, as well as Tesla charging stations, kids’ activities, a clothing and souvenir store and more.
Dining options at the music-inspired property include three places offering food and/or drinks, as well as poolside and 24/7 in-room dining. “Our guests can expect a beachfront setting of sandy sophistication, centered on fresh-caught seafood, just-picked regional produce, locally-brewed craft beer and cocktails,” said Culinary Advisor Kornel Toth-Harsanyi in a prepared statement. “We’ve introduced some exotic and international flavors to elements of our menus, creating something deliciously unique and wholly Hard Rock.”
The dining/bar options include:
- Sessions, the hotel’s signature full-service oceanfront restaurant, with breakfast, lunch and dinner menus featuring familiar flavors with a touch of flair. With indoor and outdoor seating, every meal at Sessions is served with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.
- Hard Rock Hotel Daytona Beach also has an expanded wine list, local brew selection and handcrafted cocktails served at the indoor/outdoor bar at Sessions and Wave Terrace, a beverage and lounge area featuring direct oceanfront seating areas, glowing fire pits and live music.
- Open daily, the Constant Grind café setting has bistro seating, hot and cold drinks, quick bites, High Road craft gelatos and sorbet, and more.
