Prince Floor in the Chicago Hard Rock Hotel

Just thought I'd share these pics I took of the Prince Floor, which is the 16th floor, in the Hard Rock Hotel in Chicago, IL. I was shopping around on the first floor and mentioned Prince, then the guy said there was this Prince floor. I was psyched, went up there, and saw all this. It was beautiful and I couldn't believe it smile I expected somewhat more, but I was grateful, lol. By the way, the shirt is from LoveSexy era (1988) and the guitar was like super small, of course to fit Prince's frame

I don't know what to think. 1st they have the year wrong on the LoveSexy tour on their plaque. Two, that Cloud guitar looks fake especially the head of the guitar. Looks out of the NPGMC guitar mold than the true custom look.

Cool pics!

The Hard Rock in Vegas has some Prince stuff and the thing i found most interesting is when you see the costumes first hand it really hits you just how tiny he is.

Yup yup! I would've too, but I was there for just one day for a dance show. But I'm sure the people in the rooms surrounding the display didnt enjoy the college kid screaming out of shock either, lol

Hard Rock has a love affair with Prince. All the Hard Rocks I've been too have P in a few places.

Thanks for sharing

The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U
All of it. Everything. Is U.

What is that cheap-ass piece of shit guitar? Everything about it is wrong except the shape. It's got the short headstock horn of the cheap Schecters, but the bridge is totally wrongs and the pickups aren't even in the ballpark. The neck is unfinished, too. Weird.

Not to my knowledge. They did have some guitars (replicas?) by other musicians in the 1st floor store though where i was initially at. Bon Jovi and such.
