The Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, Florida
This property has developed into a prominent poker destination over the past years thanks to the growth of the sport in the state as well as this tournament series. There’s just something about putting major tournament stops in sunny destinations that seems to be a recipe for success. Shocking, yea?
Additionally, this year, the hotel is launching its $1.5 billion expansion a month before the tournament series.
This expansion includes the world’s first guitar-shaped hotel, a brand-new spa, 13.5 acres of new water landscape features, revised convention and meeting spaces, a new entertainment venue, and plenty of new shopping where you can spend your poker winnings.
But, the most important piece of the expansion to poker players is the new 45-table poker room that comes equipped with an 8-table semi-private cash game area. Want to make sure you can watch the might Miami Dolphins continue their “epic” run? You’ll be able to on the over 50 high-resolution TVs being installed in the room. Sorry, Dolphins fans. When you get done crying on Sundays, you can head up and win some money to make everything better, as Hard Rock Stadium is only 10 miles south.
