Where You Can Stay, Play and Party Like a Rock Star.
Seminole Hard Rock Tampa recently unveiled its $700 million renovation and expansion project and its a stunner!
The iconic October grand celebration welcomed celebrities, including Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Real Housewife Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Christie Brinkley, and current Millennium Magazine Cover Celebrity, WWE superstar Titus O’Neil.
If you’ve never been to a Hard Rock hotel, you’re in for a big surprise. Known for its over the top restaurants, cluttered with nostalgic memorabilia from rock legends, the hotel spa, pool deck, restaurants and rooms slightly departs from an overwhelming collection of relics. Still, Hard Rock implements the music lifestyle in its hotels with passion and authenticity with edgy themes and contemporary interiors bathed in onyx, gold and silver. One would find Seminole Hard Rock Tampa to be quite luxurious. Yet in all, Hard Rock wouldn’t be what it is without a few surprises, like the Elvis Pressly gold plated piano in the atrium, outfits on display from Nicki Minaj and Kerry Underwood or Lady Gaga’s custom jacket from Super Bowl LI.
Owned and operated by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, the AA four diamond rated hotel is one of the largest casinos in the US. Seminole Hard Rock Tampa is Winner of J.D. Power Award for Service and as a guest, you will see exactly why.
Its Fall 2019 debut expansion indulged a new hotel tower, three ultra lavish pools and expansive gaming space. New food and beverage options were also revealed. The centerpiece of the hotel expansion project is the new 14-story hotel tower with an additional 562 hotel rooks and suites in total, the expanded Seminole Hard Rock Tampa hotel will offer 800 guest rooms, including 77 new hotel suites for a new total of 86 suites.
The casino is filled with excitement every hour of the day with over more than 24,000 square feet of gaming space. Action awaits you 24 hours a day with over 5,000 slot machines, 179 live-action table games and a state-of-the-art poker room.
Patrons can smoke on the casino floor and there are smoke-free areas on the mezzanine.
For players seeking the VIP treatment the casino offers a high limit table games room, as well as a game room tailored to the Asian market, which includes customized table games such as Pai Gow Tiles and Super 6 Baccarat.
The expanded 26,000 square foot Rock Spa and Salon features 13 treatment rooms, including its rhythm & motion room, two VIP suites, a hair and nail salon, barbershop and co-ed aqua lounge. New signature treatments include HydraFacial and Nutraceuticals Oxygen Facial, as well as a Hammam body treatment, Zemits Bionexis rapid body slimming treatment and LightStim light therapy.
Rock Om delivers a customized yoga experience from the comfort of your room on your television.
Three ultra-lavish new outdoor swimming pools – one private, one adult and one for families – adjacent to the second level of the new hotel holds a total of 200,00 gallons of water. Measuring the size of a football field, the 60,000-square-foot expanded pool and deck area feature 20 cabanas, 600 loungers and daybeds with two DJ booths.
Each of the hotel’s rooms and suites radiates a contemporary style, including Hard Rocks signature, The Sound of Your Stay music amenity program allows guests to jam out in the privacy of their room. Guests can channel their inner Santana or Clapton by reserving a Fender guitar delivered to their room, including legendary Stratocasters, classic Telecasters and bass guitars for those looking to throw down a funky baseline. Guitars come complete with a Fender Mustang floor amp and headphones to ensure maximum sound (and zero noise complaints) during jam sessions. You can even watch guitar lessons on your hotel room television.
The hotel offers accommodations fit for rock royalty, including world-class dining and bar options. We highly recommend having dinner at Council Oak Steaks & Seafood where you will have a sophisticated dining experience with the finest 100% USDA prime streaks, fresh seafood from local waters, and an extensive award winning wine selection.
You can enjoy a sampling of Tampa’s brew scene at L Bar, or indulge in a chef-driven menu and down-to-earth vibe at The Rez Grill. The Rez menu is simple in its approach with locally sourced and sustainably farmed ingredients acting as stars. For the second year in a row, The Rez Grill has been rated “Top Restaurant” by Tampa Bay Times.
Then there is the classic Hard Rock Cafe where you can devour classic American fare and relish in an authentic rock atmosphere. The Cafe is centrally located within the property and features local live music on an elevated stage. Its a place where bands and burgers come together!
If Las Vegas is a bit far and out of budget, and you’re down to swap the two hour or so drive to Atlantic City from Manhattan, for the same time on a flight with a 20-minute drive from Tampa International Airport, you’ll find the just as much adventure and festive atmosphere here. Seminole Hard Rock Tampa promises the ultimate experience infused with boundless energy, unparalleled entertainment and a comfortable stay.
