Host Hotel


WAKApalooza is proud to announce the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino as the official host hotel - offering guests the ultimate Las Vegas experience.  Designed with the rock-star lifestyle in mind, the Hard Rock Hotel features a 3-acre outdoor pool complex which hosts parties with world-famous musicians. It offers the chance to play blackjack while lounging by the pool.

Regular concerts that span from the likes of Iggy Pop to Dj Tiesto are held at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Other entertainment ranges from slot machines and card tables to go-go dancer lounges and a race and sports book.

Rooms at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino have a thematic décor, fitted with leather, wood and silver-studded velvet. Each includes a Sony Bravia 40” LCD TV, a Sony iPod clock radio and a large bathroom.

Signature food and drinks are served in any of the hotel’s eating outlets, which feature star-chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s ground breaking Nobu Restaurant. Pizzerias, a taco parlor and a juice bar complete the selection.

Rock and roll memorabilia, an elegant jewelry shop and a funky tattoo lab can also be found on the premises. A scheduled transportation service to and from the Las Vegas Strip is available. 

WAKApalooza registration will take place at the Hard Rock, and the hotel will also serve as a central hub for most of the WAKApalooza events/parties.   Shuttle buses to the kickball fields will also pick up from the Hard Rock as well.   Be sure to book your WAKApalooza discounted room ASAP.

Discounted rooms starting at $129 per night (weeknights) and $299 (weekends).   Based on availability.  Book early for cheapest rates.

Book your rooms as early as possible to save.   At the time of booking, you'll only be charged for one night's stay, not the entire amount.  Best of all, your entire reservation is 100% refundable as long as you cancel more than 72 hours in advance of arrival.   RSVP your room now to lock in the low price and to skip the resort fee!

Rooms will be distributed on a "first come first serve basis" on arrival.   To "guarantee" that your room will have two queens, you'll need to agree to an additional $20 per night charge.    If you plan on checking in late and have 4 to your room, you may want to consider the guarantee option.   This can only be done via phone call, not the web link below.
