Hard Rock International

Architectural Photography Inc

Franchising since 1995, Hark Rock International’s hotels are rooted in music and offer a wealth of unique and interesting guest amenities, from “Sound of Your Stay,” which allows guests to rent guitars for the duration of their stay, to the brand’s “Rock Om” in-room yoga program. The brand is also known for taking design risks, like the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood’s under-construction, guitar-shaped tower, which will serve as a 638-room addition to the property. There are currently four Hard Rock properties in the U.S. pipeline.
