Hard Rock Macau at City of Dreams Photo Review

Call Us When You Finish Decorating The Room

MacauTripping contributor Dramman recently spent a number days at the Hard Rock at City of Dreams and brought back a slew of photos of his room. Uncharacteristically, Dramman doesn't have much to say about his trip or any passing thoughts about the brand new City of Dreams at all... a lack which speaks volumes.

Fortunately, he brought back photos... which they say speak a thousand words. Any and all words attached to these photos are my observations, not Dramman's.

Hard Rock Macau Layout

Judging from these photos, the room looks not only small, but horribly laid out. When entering the room (the door on the right) one has to walk all the way around a bar table to get to the bathroom. Nearly every hotel room I've been in had direct access to the bathroom right at the entry.

Having magazines "standing up" in a rack works against gravity and makes them look wilted and messy. I like the idea of the table and chairs - 1960s futurist decor - but I'll bet those chairs are extremely uncomfortable.

These photos all look just vaguely depressing. Maybe because of the framing of the writing, but still.

WOW! I have to say, I am REALLY unimpressed. They really need help. Roger Thomas, you're services are needed.... :)

Dramman' loves to smoke cigars... Original Cubans? ;-) Macau has really good places to smoke cigars, not only in the room.

My silence as more to do with a change in station. I am stuck in Cleveland now for three years for law school...sigh.

I will say that the place was a bit better than described by Chuck, however I am got in a bind as the room ended up comped. So I do not want to say anything too negitive or positive.

The whole COD complex at times was astounding, and at times a bit ho-hum. It did seemed hurried, and parts remain unfinished. I do not know what Chuck did with the other photos. Chuck?

MisterM> Of course they are Cubans! I am a bit insulted you have to ask. Best place to smoke cigars in Macau IMHO is any craps table. Other than that the center bar at the MGM Grand. Also if your staying there, the pool at the Ponte 16. Chuck I know has a hard-on for the roof top bar at the Crown/Altria (I found the clientel insipid, but with a friend I could change my mind).

The shops over there all pretty much have the same prices, they are all operated by Pacific Cigar in one way or another (the exclusive Habanos franchisee for East Asia). I recommed the Sheraton Hotel in HK before you go, small shop stocked to the gills and some odd, wonderful things rolling around the humididor. Macau side, the shop at the Wynn is pretty good.

One last note, HK has banned smoking in most public bulidings and businesses. Macau hasn't.
