Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

Qeen Heart Snytsheuvel.JPG Since it was opened with a the dramatic smashing of a guitar in May, 2004, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has hosted more than five million visitors and has become the entertainment capital of South Florida. With Floridas largest casino, the 6,400 capacity Hard Rock Live indoor entertainment venue, and the restaurants, nightclubs and shops of Seminole Paradise, this mecca for entertainment has played host to entertainment and sports celebrities and welcomed television and film crews for shows such as MTV’s Total Request Live and Fox Sports’ Best Damn Sports Show Period.

In early 2005, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino received the prestigious four-diamond award from the American Automobile Association (AAA).

Leading Entertainment Destination
Built on 100 acres of the Seminole Hollywood Reservation on State Road 7 (U.S. 441) just north of Stirling Road, the Seminole Hard Rock includes a 130,000 sq. ft. casino and an unmatched combination of retail shops, nightclubs and restaurants, including a Hard Rock Cafe and the Council Oak, a prestige steak and seafood restaurant. It also boasts the full-service European-style Contour Spa, as well as a 5-acre lagoon-style pool complex with a mountainous 182-foot water slide.

Giant Neon Guitar
Guests arriving at the hotel and casino are greeted by tropical landscaping and a 50-foot neon guitar modeled after one played by Jimi Hendrix. Drivers may choose between valet parking under a large covered porte cochere, or self-parking in the adjacent garage. A Hard Rock Store and a Seminole cultural retail store are located near the main entrance, adjacent to the guest registration lobby and reception desk.

In keeping with the Hard Rock theme, the hotel and casino showcase one-of-a-kind pieces of music memorabilia, including many signed by the artists, plus a massive casino bar that includes a multi-media entertainment extravaganza. Hundreds of pieces of memorabilia at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood pay homage to several rock music genres, including the Originators of rock music, the British Invasion, Heavy Metal, Legends of Soul, and Southern Rock. The following are represented: Elvis, The Beatles, Madonna, Elton John, Aerosmith, The Who, the Rolling Stones, as well as South Florida's Gloria Estefan and the Bee Gees.

Rock music memorabilia has proven to be a major drawing card at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, which opened March 11, 2004, and which has quickly become the center for entertainment activity in Tampa Bay.

Largest Casino in Florida
At the heart of the new entertainment complex is Florida's largest and most elaborate casino, including 48 live action poker tables and more than 2,100 of the latest electronic gaming machines, including Wheel of Fortune, Double Diamond, Red, White & Blue, and Five Times Pay. Open 24 hours every day, the new casino also features plush music-inspired carpeting with musical notes in swirls of gold on a maroon background.

The hotel includes 500 contemporary guestrooms and suites designed to meet 4-star, 4-diamond standards in a 12-story hotel tower that encircles the pool area. All Seminole Hard Rock Hotel guestrooms include unique extras like Tivoli stereo and CD systems, and ultra-luxury beds with linens of Egyptian cotton and European duvets. Typical guestrooms have natural daylight to the bathrooms, separate enclosures for tub and shower and fully-stocked mini bars, as well as hairdryers, personal safes, coffee makers, three telephones, T1 direct Internet access, bath robes and an iron and ironing board.

A 4-acre lagoon-style pool area of more than 19,000 square feet snakes around the pool bar, nestled in a rock mountain, which provides a dramatic backdrop to a 182-foot waterslide and elevated spa. The pool features waterfalls, a lazy river, hot tubs and a shallow pool with play features. Poolside cabanas are built into traditional Seminole "chickees," and come equipped with televisions and refrigerators. Landscaping creates a lush and tropical oasis, with dramatic tree plantings and colorful masses of flowers and shrubs.

Hard Rock Cafe, Council Oak Restaurants
The twin focal points for dining and entertainment are the Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood and the Council Oak, a prestige steak and seafood restaurant named for the old oak tree where early members of the Seminole Tribal Council regularly met. The hotel also includes the Blue Plate, a restaurant for all-day dining. The Beach Club outdoor café and pool bar is the entertainment hub of the pool area.

The Casino Center Bar is elevated and surrounds a metal multimedia center, with nearly 70 plasma screen monitors broadcasting music videos and more. A variety of food concepts and menu items are available at the 250-seat Food Court. Additional restaurants and nightclubs are included in the nearby Seminole Paradise retail and entertainment complex.

The Hard Rock Store incorporates a guitar motif and offers a wide range of gifts, souvenirs and sundries, from a Hard Rock leather jacket to swimwear and casual clothing, bathrobes and beach towels, sunglasses and gift items. The store also features collectable Hard Rock pins in multiple styles, including several produced to commemorate special occasions.
