Seminole Hard Rock Live in ConveneSouth Florida’s all-in-one gaming resort

The action in Florida just keeps getting hotter at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The 481-room hotel in Hollywood is one of South Florida’s most popular gaming destinations, with its AAA Four-Diamond–rated accommodations, 300,000-square-foot entertainment complex, 40,000 square feet of meeting space, and the centerpiece of it all - South Florida’s largest casino.

With 140,000 square feet, including 97 tables of everything from blackjack to Three- Card Poker and 2,500 of the most popular Vegas-style slots, the casino at the Seminole Hard Rock is a crowd-pleasing experience for even the most diverse of groups. High-end gaming rooms and the lavish Plum Lounge offer premium customers a more exclusive experience, and a non-smoking gaming room features a variety of slots and table games. Poker players can now play high-stakes poker “all in, all the time” in the casino’s Poker Room, comfortably outfitted with state-of-the-art amenities and flat-screen TVs. The Poker Room’s 40-plus tables include Limit and No Limit Texas Hold ’em, Omaha Hi-Lo, and 7-Card Stud.

Rock stars, or groups who simply want to live like them, can stay in one of the hotel’s 481 luxurious guest rooms, get pampered at the Body Rock Spa, or laze around one of the 4.5-acre pool’s deluxe cabanas, decked out with sofas and TVs. Next door, Seminole Paradise - a 300,000-square-foot outdoor entertainment complex adjacent to the hotel - has plenty of non-gaming entertainment, with 23 retail shops, 18 restaurants, and 13 bars and lounges. Groups can shake it in a conga line at Bongo’s Cuban Café, sample one of 300 wines at the Council Oak, or peruse rock ’n’ roll memorabilia at the famous Hard Rock Café. After dinner, night owls can dance until dawn at Pangaea, Gryphon, Slims, and Opium nightclubs, or catch some late-night comedy at the Improv Comedy Club.
