A 400-foot-tall, guitar-shaped Hard Rock Hotel is set to open in Hollywood, Florida. The world’s first guitar-shaped hotel will open in late October and is part of a $2.2 billion project expanding two Florida Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos. The uniquely designed hotel will also feature 14 restaurants, a high-end performance venue(stage), comedy theater, slot machines, game tables, retail stores, conventions halls, and of course dedicated music memorabilia. While the interior of the hotel will contain all the glitzy, overstated fixings of a traditional Hard Rock property the exterior is no exception and will include a family-friendly man-made lake featuring paddle boats and a lazy river, rooftop bar, lounge areas, and luxury villas.

Metropolitan Acoustics was chosen as the Acoustical Consultant to model the proposed sound system for the Hard Rock Outdoor Day Club. To determine the potential impact from the sound system we built a 3-D acoustical model of the Outdoor Day Club and the surrounding areas including the hotel tower, the pool, and the cabanas spaces. We were able to map the sound pressure levels and design recommendations for the sound system configuration to increase the sound coverage in the Outdoor Day Club and reduce the noise from spilling into the hotel and pool & cabana areas. We can’t wait to hear the party rocking at the new Hard Rock Hotel.
