The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tampa is serious about music. The goliath hybrid property is part rock and roll museum, part gambling casino and part resort where the music is always blasting and the action is 24-7.
Right off of Tampa’s Interstate 4, the hotel’s giant guitar sign lets you know this is no sedate vacation place. The lobby is filled with the kind of music memorabilia that would make a serious collector swoon. An entire wall is covered in framed gold records, and hallways are lined with framed articles from famous music makers. Bon Jovi, Lady Gaga, Joe Walsh -- musicians of all stripes and genres have items on display here. Guests waiting to check in or out stand behind purple velvet ropes buoyed by large guitar-shaped stands.
Those drawn to the 24-hour casino will not be disappointed with the cacophony of slots, table games and other blinking and beeping games of chance. For an antidote to the noise, check out the soothing hotel spa and salon.
If you didn’t know this was a AAA 4-Diamond hotel, then you might be surprised by how tasteful and chic the rooms are. Think modern décor in warm neutrals with a sprinkling of rock and roll accents -- a framed close-up of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain here, a group shot of '80s pop group the Bangles over there. Every room comes with a seating area for lounging, free Wi-Fi and in-room Keurig coffeemaker.
There are enough food choices here to please everybody, running the gamut form fine dining steaks and seafood to artisan flatbreads to food court selections.
Fun extras for hotel guests include a loaner guitar menu featuring 18 different Fenders to choose from and three different curated playlists for downloading.
