HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) — The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino topped off its guitar-shaped hotel, which is slated to open next year in South Florida.

The Sun Sentinel reports the topping off happened Monday. The 450-foot tower can be seen for miles and is part of an overhaul of the gambling and entertainment complex in Hollywood.

The new tower will include 806 guestrooms and suites. The newspaper reports an additional 168 rooms and suites will be located in a seven-story tower that flanks the pool complex. The new facilities will bring the total of hotel rooms at the complex to 1,264. The original hotel at the site opened in 2004.

The expansion also includes a casino with 3,267 slot machines and 178 table games, including blackjack and baccarat.

It is scheduled to open in mid-2019.
