Hard Rock International will make its New England debut in fall 2018 when it opens the Hard Rock Hotel Hartford in the state capital, it announced last month.

Located in Hartford's Downtown North, or "DoNo," neighborhood, Hard Rock Hotel Hartford will complement the city's new minor league baseball stadium, Dunkin Donuts Park, with 170 guest rooms, a rooftop pool and lounge, a Hard Rock Café, a workout facility, and a spa.

"We're excited to bring the Hard Rock brand to New England in a city as welcoming as Hartford," said Marco Roca, executive vice president of global hotel development at Hard Rock International. "We look forward to being a part of Hartford's Downtown North evolution as one of the most exciting new neighborhoods in the region."
