AN AMAZING hotel is to open later this year in the US which is sure to strike a chord with music fans – as it is shaped like a huge GUITAR.
The £1.2bn Hard Rock project is to open its doors in Hollywood, Florida, this autumn and will stand more than 400ft high and play host to the world’s biggest music stars.
Reservations for its 683 rooms can be made from July 24, however tickets to the grand opening’s headliner act Maroon 5 are already on sale.
Jim Allen, chairman of Hard Rock International revealed details about the new guitar hotel at a press event in New York City’s Hard Rock Cafe.
“The Hard Rock brand is stronger today than it ever has been,” he said, adding it now “represents more than food, beverage and a place to stay.”
One of the highlights of the hotel will be Hard Rock Live – which will see around 100 live music shows every year.
The startling one-off hotel will also have its own man-made lake featuring luxury paddle boats and a lazy river.
The Seminole Hard Rock & Casino hotel will even have underwater VIP villas – which come with their own butlers.
These are intended to offer wealthy guests a private and exclusive pool experience, reports CNN.
“Boasting the sun-filled and sunset-laden South Florida skies, the Guitar Hotel is truly an architectural marvel that redefines the South Florida skyline,” states its website.
“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.”
There will also be 3,000 slot machines, 193 table games and a 46-table poker room, plus 30 new restaurants lounges and bars.
