Hard Rock Hotel Shaped Like A Guitar To Open In Florida

Hard Rock Hotel Shaped Like A Guitar To Open In Florida

A brand new Hard Rock Hotel shaped like a gigantic guitar is to open in Florida this week.

The luxurious hotel - which is either a marvel or a monstrosity depending on your outlook - came in at a cost of $1.2 billion and will be opened with a grand performance from Maroon 5.

That concert will showcase the gigantic gig venue that is built into the site of the hotel - it will host around 100 gigs each year and has a capacity of 7,000.

The hotel stands at 450ft tall and features 638 rooms, all of which are sold out for at least the first two weeks.

One of the main features of the guitar shape is the LED-powered guitar string lighting.

Like we mentioned, you'll either love it or you'll hate it.

Confusingly enough, the hotel is based in Hollywood. It's not that Hollywood, though. In fact, this particular Hollywood is a city in Florida.

It features a swimming pool the size of nine football pitches, a lazy river, and a paddle boat lake.

Oh, and if you're really rich, The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino also has several underwater VIP villas, each coming equipped with a dedicated personal butler.

Sounds pretty flash, right?

Well, you're going to have to be pretty wealthy to stay here, that's for sure. However, if you've got the readies these VIP residences are aimed at providing guests with a unique private pool experience.

The hotel's website states: "Boasting the sun-filled and sunset-laden South Florida skies, the Guitar Hotel is truly an architectural marvel that redefines the South Florida skyline.

"The new venue will host state-of-the art technical capabilities that will support A-list celebrity performances as well as award shows, sporting events and nationally televised programs.

"The venue will be a stand-out option for entertainers and tours across the country as well as drawing internationally acclaimed acts."

Next, there's the casino.

It's got 3,000 slot machines, a 46-table poker room, 193 games tables and 30 - yes, 30 - bars, lounges and restaurants.

There's another hotel attached to the guitar-shaped one, too. Oasis Tower boasts another 168 guest rooms, with swim-up suites and a private pool.

The chairman of Hard Rock International, Jim Allen, said: "The Hard Rock brand is stronger today than it ever has been," adding that it now "represents more than food, beverage and a place to stay."

If you like gambling, relaxing and rock music - oh, and are very rich - this is surely one for the bucket list.
