The new spa, which will open on the second floor of the new hotel tower, will replace the existing spa and salon. In addition to the current spa’s services and amenities, the new spa will also feature pool-side services for the ultimate resort experience. The spa menu will feature massages, facials, body treatments, hair and nail services, makeup application, waxing treatments, and more.
The expansion will also add three new outdoor swimming pools to the new hotel tower, which serves as the centerpiece of the expansion. The 15-story tower will add an additional 564 hotel rooms and suites. On the second floor of the tower, guests will have access to the new Rock Spa & Salon as well as the three new pools and an expanded pool and deck area, which will measure the size of a football field.
Expansion of the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa is part of a $2.4 billion investment from the Seminole Tribe of Florida in its two flagship destination casino complexes in Tampa and Hollywood, FL. The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood is undergoing a simultaneous expansion and renovation. The expansion will bring close to an additional 1,000 part-time and full-time jobs, which are in addition to the over 2,000 construction jobs on-site during the two-year building project. Economic analysts point to another 1,022 indirect permanent jobs generated by the expansion, plus another 2,268 indirect construction jobs, for a grand total of more than 6,000 additional jobs.
“Our team members are the backbone of our operation, and we value their attention to detail and focus on guest care,” says Joe Lupo, president of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa. “In addition to enhancing our guest experience and offering a premiere resort entertainment destination, this expansion will offer more growth opportunities for our team members.”
Slated for completion in mid-2019, the expanded casino will offer guests approximately 200,000 square-feet of entertainment and gaming.
