Hard Rock International is all set to open its new – claimed as first-ever – guitar-shaped hotel. And, just a week before the opening, the gambling operator has given a sneak peek into the casino.
The entire $1.5 billion project at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood has been much in the news, especially over its shape and infrastructural design.
“We look at this as an adult integrated resort,” said Jim Allen, CEO of Hard Rock International. “It is truly a destination that’s not just a casino.”
The casino hotel is scheduled to open coming Thursday.
“There are three tractor-trailers for the Savoy crystal that’s coming in,” he said.
“If you look around the room, you look at the distance, and the furthest distance of any seat to what we call ‘center mic’ is 168 feet,” said Allen. “In fact, there’s nothing like it in the United States.”
“There’s no echo in this room whatsoever. There is absolutely none,” said Allen. “Every ceiling, every wall is all treated. You can see all the acoustical panels. They are not just decorations. They are specifically designed for the highest quality of sound.”
Allen was speaking to 7News.
“When we look outside, and you look at these amazing pools and waterfalls, I mean, literally, you could walk for hours,” said Allen.
Hard Rock recently, conducted three job fairs to hire 600 employees for the new gambling facility.
