THE first hotel in the world to have the shape of a guitar will open in Hollywood, Florida (佛羅里達州荷里活) on 24 October. The Hard Rock brand owns it and it cost US$1.5 billion (HK$11bn) to build.
The hotel is part of Hard Rock’s expansion efforts. The chain thinks a lot of people will stay in the hotel just for its shape alone. On top of that, the hotel will have a 13.5-acre manmade lake. Hard Rock thinks the spot will definitely attract both tourists and locals.
The hotel will start accepting bookings in July. It will have 800 rooms and suites, in addition to a show venue that can take 6,500 people. This means the hotel can host concerts, which goes with the Hard Rock theme. The hotel will also have fountain called ‘The Oculus’ in its lobby. The Oculus will have a laser show regularly.
