Guitar-Shaped Glass Hotel To Be Built In Florida

A ceremony has taken place to mark the beginning of construction on a massive 137 meters tall guitar shaped hotel in Hollywood, Florida. The 36-story giant glass tower is being built as part of a US$1.5 billion expansion of Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, which will nearly double its current size. The iconic guitar hotel structure is the vision of James F. Allen, longtime CEO of Seminole Gaming and Chairman of Hard Rock International.

‘It will be the first building in the world that’s truly to scale designed as an authentic guitar. 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,’ he told reporters.

The tower is due to open in 2019 and will add 638 rooms and suites to pushing the room total to 1,270 and will also contain a 3900 square meters spa as well as several restaurants and lounges.

The casino will have 3,267 slot machines and 178 table games such as blackjack and baccarat, plus a new 1670 square meters poker room. As well as wondering at the tower’s avant-garde shape, guests will access a 40.5 thousand square meters complex at its base that will offer private cabanas with plunge pools, multiple waterfalls, beach club dining and watersports.
