Since opening in August 2014, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City has welcomed over 5.3 million guests through its doors, making it a premier entertainment destination. Gamers and entertainment seekers alike have flocked to the property for over a decade for the best in gaming and luxurious accommodations. Serving as one of Midwest Gaming’s Preferred Properties, and the recipient of Best Overall Property in our recent Readers’ Choice Awards, we are excited to give our readers an insider’s look at what makes Hard Rock a definite destination property to add to your Summer and Fall travel calendar.


When it comes to casino action, you’ll find it at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City. The property is an award winning gaming destination, offering 883 slot machines and 28 table games throughout a contemporary and energetic casino floor. Guests can enjoy daily casino promotions and opportunities to cash in on the $38 million paid in jackpots since the casino’s opening. Earlier this year, the casino opened a new 8,000 square-foot expansion to its gaming floor, featuring 60 new slot machines including high limit games, a second casino cage and a Platinum Lounge giving players even more gaming options to enjoy.


Hard Rock Hotel Sioux City is the area’s only AAA Four Diamond rated hotel, a distinction achieved by only five percent of the more than 28,000 properties reviewed by AAA. Perfectly incorporated into the 112 year-old historic Battery Building in downtown Sioux City, Hard Rock Hotel provides its guests with an unparalleled stay. For a building whose original construction was never intended for the public eye, the historic Battery Building has some truly amazing architectural elements. The 54 rooms and suites each have their own unique shape and layout thanks to the historic nature of the building. Preserved brick and exposed wood beams complement the modern luxuries and rock and roll décor in each room, creating a unique aesthetic unlike any hotel in the region.

Celebrating the Romanesque structure of the building, these unique elements were not only preserved, but also highlighted in the construction and development of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City. Plus, as an added bonus, guests of the hotel enjoy a complimentary drink upon check-in at the three-story Lobby Bar, what was once a drop-off station for trains unloading cargo and picking up goods for market.
