A Member may either redeem the Hotel Points for the applicable Hotel Free Night Certificate tier level or maintain those Hotel Points and continue to add to them.
Members must follow the directions on the Hotel Free Night Certificate to make their Hotel Free Night reservation at a participating Hard Rock Hotel. Failure to follow such directions may result in the Hotel Free Night Certificate being declined.

Hotel Points may only be accumulated on the purchase price, or any portion thereof, of Qualifying Room Revenue that is paid for with a Qualified Payment Method. Other restrictions may apply towards the redemption of Hotel Free Night Certificates and Hotel Free Night Certificates may be subject to local laws, including tax regulations.
Advanced reservations are required following the process outlined on a Hotel Free Night Certificate, including requesting application of the Hotel Free Night Certificate to the particular reservation. No walk-ins (i.e. attempts to use the Hotel Free Night Certificate when checking in if not previously requested in an advance reservation) using Hotel Free Night Certificates will be accepted. Redemption of Hotel Free Night Certificates are subject to availability dates (varies by participating Hard Rock Hotel). Hotel Free Night Certificates will not be valid at a Hard Rock Hotel property if it is no longer branded as a Hard Rock hotel or discontinues its participation in the Rewards Program before such Hotel Free Night Certificate is redeemed. In such a case, the Rewards Member will be permitted to use the Hotel Free Night Certificate at another participating Hard Rock Hotel property.
Members may view their Program account status online at the Program Website. Members are responsible for ensuring that their Hotel Points are properly issued and credited. Please allow up to ten (10) business days from the date of the payment of the Qualifying Room Revenue for the corresponding Hotel Points to appear in an existing Member’s Program membership account.
