Music lovers in New York City will love the vibe of the Ace Hotel, which hosts free music sessions featuring local artists most nights in the lobby. The hotel’s signature live music series, “5 at 5,” hosts up-and-coming musicians to perform five songs at 5 p.m. throughout the year. In your room, you’ll find a vintage-style record player with a selection of vinyl records, plus a Gibson guitar so you can rock out on vacation.

Sunset Marquis, Hollywood

Steps from the famed Sunset Strip, the Sunset Marquis in downtown Hollywood is hallowed ground for rock stars. In its infancy, the Sunset Marquis became an instant respite for rockers looking to unwind after a night playing the stages of the nearby rock clubs. Today, the spirit remains at the NightBird Recording Studio, where many musicians record while staying at the Sunset Marquis. Don’t miss “Live@SunsetMarquis,” an acoustic music series that takes place on the pool deck and showcases two to three up-and-coming acts per night. Before you leave, stop by the Morrison Hotel Gallery, which boasts some of the most renowned rock star photography.

When it comes to rocking out, you can’t beat the rock star perks at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. The “Sound of Your Stay” program hooks you up with rock star-worthy amenities like a 15-track curated playlist and a guitar room service menu with 20 electric guitars for you to choose from. You can spend a weekend jamming out on a Stratocaster or a bass guitar, and the in-room amp and headphones ensure you rock out without disturbing the neighbors. Plus, four onsite music venues mean you can always catch live music at the Hard Rock.

You’ll get special room rates if you’re in town to catch a performance by the Oregon Symphony. The package also features early check-in, late check-out, a special welcome amenity by the Oregon Symphony, a king suite and a bottle of sparkling cider.
