Hard Rock International has opened its latest hotel, the Hard Rock Hotel New York, in midtown Manhattan.
Located between New York's Theater District and Radio City Music Hall, the 446-room Hard Rock Hotel New York showcases the brand's signature music-focused theming, with memorabilia like a leather jacket worn by Joey Ramone, lyrics handwritten by John Lennon and custom outfits created for Jay Z and Beyonce, among other items, on display throughout the property.
Guestrooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows and a blue-and-gold color palette as well as sound wave-inspired carpet patterns.
Perched atop the hotel's 36th floor is its Rock Star Suite, a glass-enclosed, two-story penthouse that offers double-height ceilings, city views, an open-plan living and dining area and a 1,600-square-foot terrace with outdoor bar. Upstairs, the suite features a bedroom with walk-in closet and a bathroom anchored by a red, freestanding bathtub.
