Kosher hotel to break ground in Hollywood near Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

BSD Capital plans to break ground on Wyndham Dolce Kosher House Hotel on Feb. 5, just across the street from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood.

Sharon Sharaby, owner of the Boca Raton-based real estate firm, said the hotel will feature 100 guest rooms, a rooftop pool and special amenities geared toward Jewish travelers looking for a more kosher hotel stay. Construction is expected to last about 20 months, so BSD Capital is aiming for a late 2022 debut.

“We will be the first [kosher hotel] in Broward County,” Sharaby said, “and the first hotel directly across the street form the Hollywood Hard Rock casino.”

The hotel will be built at 5530 S. State Road 7 in Hollywood, placing it near both main entrances for the hotel and casino. City officials first approved the project in February 2019.

PCA Construction is the general contractor for the project, Sharaby said. Hollywood-based Kaller Architecture designed the hotel.

Amenities will include a kosher rooftop restaurant near the pool, he said. A Shabbat elevator will automatically stop on every floor and rooms can be opened without the use of an electronic key card reader on the Sabbath so guests can refrain from operating electronics.

Additionally, Sharaby said, BSD Capital made some other amenity changes due to the Covid-19 pandemic. One such change is the incorporation of a touchless food delivery system. Guests can order room service and have food sent to their floor for pickup; only those with a code can unlock the compartment to retrieve the order.

He added that the Wyndham Dolce Kosher House Hotel is hopefully the first step in turning the area surrounding the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino into a tourist destination.

“We’d like to turn it into the next Vegas Strip,” he said.

BSD Capital has another Wyndham-branded hotel planned nearby. Sharaby said there will be a 200-room hotel with 65 condo units and ground-floor retail one block north of the kosher hotel.
