The Hard Rock Casino Resort Tampa has opened with 562 rooms, which more than triple its overnight capacity. It features several new restaurants, a sprawling spa, a pool deck the size of a football field, a concert venue targeting A-list performers, and what might be the single most expensive piece of memorabilia in the Hard Rock’s entire collection: A 24-karat gold leaf piano owned by Elvis Presley.
RLA was honoured to be a consultant on the project and as such Lynn Curry, RLA USA President was invited to the Grand Opening Celebration, which took place October 3, 2019. “So proud to have worked with this architectural firm, Klai Juba Wald, on the Hard Rock Casino Resort Tampa”! says Lynn Curry.
