Visitors amped-up about staying at the world’s first guitar-shaped hotel will soon be able to make reservations.
Starting Wednesday, July 24, The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood will begin booking guests.
The $1.5 billion hotel is part of a larger $2.2 billion expansion plan that has seen massive upgrades to the company’s Tampa and Hollywood locations.
Standing 450 feet tall, the one-of-a-kind guitar-shaped hotel has 638 bedrooms that start at 515 square feet.
“The guitar tower will attract casino players and other visitors from throughout the country and around the world,” said Hard Rock International Chairman and Seminole Gaming CEO Jim Allen. “It will put South Florida on the map as a world-class gaming destination, and it will have a huge economic impact on Florida. The gaming industry will never be the same.”
Adjacent to the guitar hotel is the Oasis Tower that offers 168 upscale rooms, including swim-up suites that let guests step directly out onto the pool area.
Allen told CNN he is particularly excited about the “Bora Bora” style pool area with private cabanas ranging from 400 to 800 square feet that are submerged in water and come with butler service.
As for food and drinks, there will be no shortage of options with this new expansion. There are 16 unique restaurants in addition to 20 bars and lounges on the property. The dining options include a contemporary Italian-American restaurant, Latin American- and Spanish-inspired grills, a 24-hour American diner and deli, a buffet with themed menus, an artisanal coffee shop and much more.
While the hotel is grabbing all the headlines, let’s not forget it’s the entertainment options that make the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino really sing.
As guests walk in they will be met by “The Oculus,” which the Hard Rock describes as “sight and sound extravaganza combining elements of water, fire and technology in a series of floor-to-ceiling shows choreographed to music.”
Visitors can then move on to the expanded casino that now offers:
Over 200 Table Games
3,100 Slot Machines
45-Table Poker Room
High Limit Slots Room
Non-Smoking Slots Room
Exclusive Plum Lounge For High Rollers
The company also invested more than $125 million in creating the state-of-the-art Hard Rock Live, a 7,000-seat theater-style performance venue that’s expected to schedule at least 200 nights of shows. Adam Levine and Maroon 5 are headlining the grand opening of Hard Rock Live on October 25.
With the hotel set to open in three months, the Hard Rock still looking to fill more than 600 jobs. Positions include: guest services, chefs and cooks, servers, stewards, attendants, concierge and more.
The hotel will officially open on October 24, so for latest rates, packages and reservations, contact Customer Care at (866) 502-7529 or visit seminolehardrockhollywood.com.
