New $75 million expansion begins at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa
The last major expansion at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tampa was in 2007 and added 55,000 square feet of gaming space plus more than 1,000 new gaming machines. The expansion project includes 32,000 square feet of gaming space. The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino currently has about 190,000 square feet of gaming, so the expansion would push it above 220,000. Once the expansion is completed, the casino will have nearly 5,000 slot machines and 105 table games.
The expansion project at the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa also includes a new restaurant, a new five-story parking garage with capacity for more than 1,300 vehicles, as well as a renovated pool with lush tropical landscaping and other exciting features.
“We’re very excited to announce this latest expansion. We also want to assure our guests that the construction will not affect their gaming, hotel and restaurant experience. Ultimately, the expansion will enhance our guests’ experience with much more parking, beautiful new casino space for their favorite games, and a great new dining experience.” said John Fontana, president of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa.
