HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) – Hard Rock International is about ready to take you into the guitar. The guitar-shaped hotel, that is.
7News cameras caught construction crews hard at work on Friday as they finalized the brand new $ 1.5 billion project at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood.  "We look at this as an adult integrated resort," said Jim Allen, CEO of Hard Rock International. "It's really a destination that isn't just a casino."
The guitar-shaped hotel is scheduled to open on Thursday.
Allen gave 7News a sneak peek at the huge venue

The new theater can be home to concerts, Broadway musicals, boxing and live television series.
"There is no echo in this room whatsoever. There is absolutely no," Allen said. "Every ceiling, every wall is all treated. You can see all the acoustic panels. They are not just decorations. They are special designed for the highest sound quality. "
7News cameras captured one of many new inputs that will showcase a large fountain equipped with lasers. It will have a performance approximately every 40 minutes. The fountain is the brain of the designers bring the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas to life.
"When we look outside and you look at these amazing pools and waterfalls, I can literally walk for hours," Allen said.
Guests could walk around for hours taking in the brand new architecture, the modern design. The hotel's signature restaurant, Council Oak, now brings in the exterior.
The soon-to-open hotel promises to be the hottest destination for tourists and locals alike.
"This has taken the business and the tribe and, frankly, the Hard Rock brand to a level competing for something in the world," Allen said.
