Marking its 16th property, and its first in Latin America, Hard Rock International will open the Hard Rock Hotel Panama Megapolis in December 2011.
The 66-story hotel, located in Panama City just a few miles from one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, the Panama Canal, will offer panoramic views of the city and Panama Bay, with its yachts and sailboats. Hard Rock Hotel Panama Megapolis is developed and owned by Megapolis Investment Group and will be managed locally by Decameron Hotels & Resorts.
Located on Balboa Avenue, and connected by bridgeway to the cross-street Multicentro Mall and the Megapolis Convention Center, currently under construction, Hard Rock Hotel Panama Megapolis is situated on more than three-quarters of an acre featuring a free-form infinity pool with private cabanas. The hotel will have 1,499 rooms, including 796 suites, ranging in size from 462 square feet to 2,659-square-foot Rock Star Suites, a signature of the Hard Rock brand.
In addition to the existing Hard Rock Cafe in the attached Multicentro Mall, the hotel will offer eight food & beverage outlets, including an indoor/outdoor bar & club on the 62nd floor – as well as a breakfast, lunch & dinner buffet. There will be a 7,800-square foot Rock Spa featuring 14 treatment rooms, and a Rock Shop store for guest necessities and souvenirs. The hotel will also offer business travelers and special event patrons 24,250 square feet of flexible meeting space to accommodate gatherings large and small.
Throughout the hotel, guests will be able to see and experience an abundance of authentic rock memorabilia and state-of-the-art technology, including Hard Rock Hotel’s amenity program, The Sound of Your Stay, which lets guests download complimentary music from distinct curated playlists.
The opening of Hard Rock Hotel Panama Megapolis will allow guests to join Hard Rock’s global network of hotels/casinos/cafes and participate in events, both local and global, such as its three-day music festival, “Hard Rock Calling,” in London.
