Is a Hard Rock Hotel FF program in the future?

Existing hotels: Bali, Chicago, Hollywood, Fl., Las Vegas, Orlando, Pattaya, San Diego, Tampa, Madrid.

Coming soon: Biloxi 2007, New York 2007, Copper Mountain (Colorado?) 2009, Palm Springs 2009, Macau 2009.

I THINK when the Seminole Tribe of Florida bought the chain for $965 million last December, included were all of the hotels EXCEPT Las Vegas and San Diego. (Correct me if I'm wrong).

I know some of these properties are joint ventures; nonetheless, aren't they big enough now to have their own FF program?

Thoughts and / or comments?

The one in Vegas is not part of the deal, Not sure about any others.
The two here in FL with casinos already have their own Slot club which has alot of monthly coupons and drawings attached, and high room rates. I would think that they would expand on the same club that they have now.

It would be cool if they then had a Hard Rock Cafe credit card which gave extra bonus points for staying at their hotels or eating at their restaurants around the world. We have a nice large Hard Rock Cafe on the second floor of the Duty Free Shoppers store (south end, intersection of Beach Road and Garapan Street) on Saipan.

Some, though not all HR's, participate in iPrefer. Though not a points/status driven program, does provide a level of bene's, UPG's, free internet, etc. You can see more at

Choice Hotels' Choice Privileges program allows US members to redeem points for award stays at Preferred Hotels & Resorts...

http://www.choicehotels.com/ires/en-...GPHotelRewards

One of the properties is the Hard Rock Hotel in Chicago, requiring 40,000 points per night.

If you are interested in this program note that Diners Club Mastercard is somewhat better for earning Choice points than the Choice Privileges VISA, except when staying at Choice properties. The CP VISA earns two points per dollar, but Diners points convert 1250:3000 or 2.4 per dollar.

<< The tribe already has plans to expand the business, with the number of Hard Rock hotels to grow to 15 in the next three to four years >>

There is the All-Access cluib, but I don't think that hotels are included.
