Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood previews 35-story guitar-shaped hotel set to open in 2019 – Sun Sentinel

A new $1.5 billion expansion project at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood is off to a smashing start — literally.

On Wednesday, an electrifying guitar smashing ceremony accompanied by fireworks set the back drop for the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s preview of a new hotel tower that’s rising at the mammoth lodging and entertainment complex.

The guitar smashings have become a ceremonial staple of Hard Rock grand openings and other milestone events.

The expansion is poised to debut several signature features that don’t currently exist nationally or anywhere in the world, officials said during a preview of the 450-foot tall guitar-shaped hotel tower under construction.

“It will be the first building in the world that’s truly to scale designed as an authentic guitar,” James “Jim” Allen, Seminole Gaming CEO and chairman of Hard Rock International told reporters. “So it’s not just an exterior façade, the curving of the building will be identical to an authentic guitar.”

It’s scheduled for a summer 2019 opening.

In addition to the tower’s avant-garde shape, guests will be able to explore an expansive 10-acre complex at its base that will offer private cabanas with plunge pools, multiple waterfalls, beach club dining and watersports.

The lagoon-style poolside “Bora Bora Experience” will be unlike anything currently existing in the United States, Allen said.

“You’ll have Chickees submerged in water with beds, bedrooms, showers and complete butler service built into the pool itself,” he said.

The “water wonderland” will have a slew of day and nighttime entertainment offerings including day pools, lazy rivers, paddleboats and canoes.

The tower will add 638 rooms and suites to the Seminole Hard Rock’s accommodation offerings, pushing the room total to 1,270. Another lower-level building inside the new development will offer even more rooms
