The gateway to living out your rock ‘n’ roll fantasy is nearly about to swing open. The Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, Florida — also recognized as the world’s first guitar-shaped hotel — will start taking reservations this week, and you might want to mark your calendar.
The new, $1.5-billion Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood is one of the most exclusive Hard Rock sites to date, as it will feature 1,271 luxury guest rooms and suites, counting 638 rooms inside a part of the structure that is shaped like a massive guitar.
If you’ve ever thought about what it was like to feel like a very, very tiny rock star, here’s your chance.
The unusual hotel also features a lagoon-style pool, a 12,000-square-foot rooftop bar, a 7,000-seat performance venue, a luxury spa, lots of shopping, comedy and theatre sites, tons of eateries and a casino with 3,000 slot machines and over 200 table games.
While some media outlets, including the Miami Herald, have disapproved the novel hotel idea, James Allen, CEO of Seminole Gaming and chairman of Hard Rock International, says the firm is embracing this quirky idea.
“We think the architectural design in itself makes it as an amazing attraction,” said Allen to the Miami Herald. “There is really, with zero exaggeration, nothing like it in the world.”
With such an extensive complex offering so many things to relish, any visitor would be happy to spend their whole vacation without setting foot outside their hotel while staying at this quirky location. It’s clearly not just a hotel, it’s a bucket-list destination for a lot of people.
The hotel will formally open on Oct. 24, but reservations will open on Wednesday, July 24. In order to make a reservation, visit the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino website or call Customer Care at (866) 502-7529.
