HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) – Hard Rock International is almost ready to get into the guitar. The guitar-shaped hotel, that is.
7News cameras caught construction crews hard at work on Friday when they finalized the all-new $ 1.5 billion project at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood.  "We look at this as an adult integrated resort," said Jim Allen, CEO of Hard Rock International. "It's really a destination that is not just a casino."
The guitar-shaped hotel is scheduled to open on Thursday.
Allen gave 7News a sneak peek at the massive arena
"There are three tractors for the Savoy crystal coming in, he said.
Hard Rock Live is now a large theater that can accommodate 7000 people at once "With its mouse pads, there is no bad place in the house.
" If you look around the room you look at the distance and the longest distance from any place to what we call & # 39; center mic & # 39; is 1
The new theater may be home to concerts, Broadway musicals, boxing and TV shows.
" There is no echo in that this room at all. There is absolutely nothing, ”Allen said. “Every ceiling, every wall is all treated. You can see all the acoustic panels. They are not just decorations. They are specially designed for the highest sound quality. ”
7News cameras captured one of many new inputs that will show a large fountain equipped with lasers. It will have a show about every 40 minutes. The fountain is the brainchild of the designers who helped live the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
"When we look outside, and you look at these amazing pools and waterfalls, I mean, literally, you can walk for hours," Allen said.
Guests were able to walk for hours taking in the brand new architecture, the latest design. The hotel's signature restaurant, Council Oak, now takes in the exterior.
The soon-to-open hotel promises to be the hottest destination for tourists and locals alike.
"This has taken the business and the tribe and, frankly, the Hard Rock brand to a level that competes with everything in the world," Allen said.
