This one is really cool…
Upon its completion in 2019, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood (not as in LA, but a city on Florida’s east coast, between Fort Lauderdale and Miami) will be the world’s first building shaped like a guitar.
Over 35-stories-tall, the hotel and resort – currently under construction – will boast more than 1,200 rooms and Bora Bora-style villas surrounded by water.
“Not only do you have all these individual lagoons that you can swim through, but literally rooms submerged in water, where you can stay in overnight with butler service…waterways and canals and lazy rivers – just a lot of fun stuff,” James F. Allen, Chairman at Hard Rock International, commented to reporters at a guitar-smashing (literally – a tradition for Hard Rock venues) launch event with famous musicians in attendance, recently held at the resort.
The iconic new project is an expansion of the popular existing Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino which will nearly double its current size. The US $1.5 billion renovation includes doubling the size of the casino and in time, demolishing its current nightlife venue – Hard Rock Live – to make way for a brand-new, state-of-the-art, 7,000 seat venue.
The visionary guitar hotel structure is the vision of Allen, who is also longtime CEO of Seminole Gaming.
“It will be the first building in the world that’s truly to scale designed as an authentic guitar,” he added.
“So it’s not just an exterior facade, the curving of the building will be identical to an authentic guitar. We think the building itself will be must-see attraction.”
As well as getting to marvel at the hotel’s avant-garde shape, guests will have the opportunity to experience its 41,000-square foot spa as well as several restaurants and lounges. A 10-acre complex at its base will offer beach club dining, watersports, private cabanas with plunge pools, multiple waterfalls, and more.
