It looks like a rock ’n’ roll guitar that Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page would have played. But this one is 137-meter-tall hotel in south Florida. The Guitar Hotel, owned by Seminole Hard Rock empire, had its grand opening on October 24th.
The $1.5 billion project is a unique addition to South Florida’s tourist landscape. It has more than 600 rooms and at night, beams of light will mimic the strings of the guitar.
"Wouldn’t it be really cool if we could design a hotel shaped like a guitar?" said Jim Allen, CEO of Hard Rock International. "Before, we were more of a local facility. Now, we have the ability to market this internationally."
As for the guitar shape, Allen said it’s meant to be generic and not necessarily the Gibson Les Paul made famous by Page and others. But he added that Hard Rock has relationships with both Gibson and Page, and the hotel and casino features many Led Zeppelin artifacts.(AP)
