HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (CelebrityAccess) The $1.5 billion Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, Fla., with its signature, 400-foot, guitar-shaped design, is expected to open this fall, as is a Hard Rock hotel in Tampa.
Both are part of a $2.2 billion project expanding the two Florida Hoard Rock Hotels & Casinos. The Hollywood hotel is expected to open Oct. 24 with reservations beginning July 24. Maroon 5 will debut its venue with tickets already on sale.
“The Hard Rock brand is stronger today than it ever has been,” Jim Allen, chairman of Hard Rock International and CEO of Seminole Gaming, said in a statement to CNN, adding that the brand “represents more than food, beverage and a place to stay.”
Hard Rock Live is expected to host about 100 concerts a year at the $125 million venue. The hotel will also feature “The Oculus,” a display of sound and water, and a day pool party that will “rival any of Vegas’ pool parties,” according to Allen.
