The sky is truly the limit for Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino’s $1.5 billion expansion, which is epitomized by the new 450-foot guitar-shaped hotel that residents of Broward County have seen rise from the ground over the past two years. The sprawling resort is set to open on Oct. 24, 2019.
The hotel will house three towers: the world’s first guitar-shaped building, with 638 luxury rooms; the Oasis Tower, which will consist of 168 luxury rooms overlooking a new “Bora Bora Experience” pool-lagoon area; and the classic Hard Rock Hotel that is a long-established staple in South Florida. This resort is shaping up to be unique in many aspects, including the size of the over 800 new rooms at 515 square feet, a significant upgrade from the average industry standard of 400 square feet.
The resort’s new amenities rival that of any luxury resort found in places like Las Vegas or Dubai. Guests will have access to the private “Bora Bora Experience” that is reminiscent of the region for which it is named, including private villas, personal butler service and a pool-lagoon landscape. The resort will also offer a new 42,000 square foot space that includes a 3,200 square foot fitness center, salon, barber shop, and countless spa services. The primary staple of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel is its casino, which is also undergoing some major renovations and upgrades with the addition of 200 table games, 3,100 slot machines and a newly constructed 45-table poker room. Finally, the new 6,500-seat Hard Rock Live venue is expected to draw tourists and musical acts alike to the South Florida region. The venue will be kick-started a day after the grand opening with an inaugural concert by Maroon 5.
The massive expansion is already having a positive economic impact on the South Florida region. The resort has been in the process of hiring over 1,200 new employees for full-time, part-time and on-call positions, while the expansion required over 2,000 construction employees. The almost completed guitar-shaped tower is already a landmark on the South Florida skyline and is attracting more attention to the city of Hollywood, where the resort is located.
Long a major economic driver in Broward County, the refurbished Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is ready for its debut and set to play a major role in all of South Florida.
