Hard Rock Hotel & Morrison Music Center

The Morrison Hotel & Amphitheater project is located in downtown Los Angeles at 1246 S. Hope St. The original hotel, the site of the infamous photo session for musical group ‘The Doors’, was built in 1914 and has been shuttered since 2005.

This project preserves the historic building and renovates the interior into 40 entertainment/party suites that open onto a common courtyard performance Amphitheater complete with state-of-the-art staging and lighting, seating for 1,500 attendees and a club level with additional bars and seating. The rooftop will accommodate an entertainment lounge and additional concert viewing. The hotel will also feature an authentic renovation of the room where Jim Morrison and The doors shot the album cover for their Morrison Hotel album in December of 1969. The venue’s total capacity is approximately 2,800.

Adjacent to the amphitheater will be a new 20-story mixed-use hotel structure with 209 hotel rooms, 87 luxury condos, 45 workforce housing units, and 30,000 square feet of ground floor and lower level retail including restaurants and food courts. This hotel could possibly be operated as a Hard Rock Hotel franchise; coming full-circle from its roots as ‘The Doors’ hangout spot after the photo shoot at the Morrison Hotel. The roof will feature a unique 2-story, glass-enclosed 1,000-seat performance space plus a 10,000 square foot restaurant/event

space that will be leased to an independent operator. The building will contain 50,000 square feet of meeting space as well as a gym and spa. An underground parking structure with a capacity of 400 vehicles will be located beneath the tower.
