Hard Rock to open first Hotel in Panama

Marking its 16th property, and its first in Latin America, Hard Rock International today announced that the Hard Rock Hotel Panama Megapolis is expected to open 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 stunning panoramic views of the city and Panama Bay, with its yachts and sailboats. Hard Rock Hotel Panama Megapolis, which brings the acclaimed "Hard Rock Hotel experience" to an ever-popular global tourist destination, 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, with lush landscaping and an oversized, 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-sq. ft. 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 – an exclusive place to be seen, and to enjoy a bird's-eye view of the city and distant mountains – as well as a breakfast, lunch & dinner buffet. For those seeking relaxation, there will be a 7,800-sq. ft. Rock Spa® featuring 14 luxurious 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 popular amenity program The Sound of Your Stay®, which lets guests download complimentary music from distinct curated playlists.
