The door to living out your rock ‘n’ roll fantasy is about to swing open.
The Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, Florida — also known 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 unique Hard Rock locations to date, as it will feature 1,271 luxury guest rooms and suites, including 638 rooms inside a part of the building that is shaped like a giant guitar.
If you’ve ever wondered 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 concert venue, a luxury spa, lots of shopping, comedy and theater venues, tons of restaurants and a casino with 3,000 slot machines and over 200 table games.
While some media outlets, including the Miami Herald, have criticized the novel hotel idea, James Allen, CEO of Seminole Gaming and chairman of Hard Rock International, says the company is embracing this quirky concept.
“We think the architectural design in itself creates an amazing attraction,” said Allen to the Miami Herald. “There is truly, with zero exaggeration, nothing like it in the world.”
With such an extensive complex offering so many things to enjoy, any guest would be happy to spend their entire vacation without setting foot outside their hotel while staying at this offbeat location. It’s clearly not just a hotel, it’s a bucket-list destination in itself for a lot of people.
The hotel will officially open on Oct. 24, but reservations will open on Wednesday, July 24.
