Hard Rock Hotel Chicago and Gibson Guitar introduce “CHECK IN, ROCK OUT,” a new guest program in which both professionals and amateurs can jam in the privacy of their own room without disturbing those around them, thanks to the Line 6 pocket pod and a pair of headphones. Guests can choose from a wide variety of electric and acoustic guitars, such as the ES-335, Les Paul Custom Cherry Sunburst, the all-new SG Carved Top Autumn Burst, a Jack Casady Gold Bass, a Montana J-45, a Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC, the classic Hummingbird or a variety of many others.
As there is no charge or time limit to the program, guests are encouraged to sample the guitars and keep them for as long as they stay at the hotel. Plans are in the works for a Gibson in-room channel dedicated to guitar lessons, as well as on-site jam sessions.
