The Cordish Companies has received international acclaim for its hospitality developments. This division focuses on high-profile, one-of-a-kind destinations. For example, The Cordish Companies, through its affiliate Power Plant Entertainment, LLC, developed two Hard Rock-themed hotels and casinos in Hollywood, Florida and Tampa, Florida, the first Hard Rock hotels and casinos in the United States outside of Las Vegas. The projects rank among the top performing casinos in the world and are two of the five largest casinos in the United States. Notably, The Cordish Companies opened the $500+ million Maryland Live! Casino in June 2012 which is the largest gaming, retail and entertainment destination in the country with 182 table games and more than 4,300 slot machines; nationally-acclaimed restaurants; designer name brand shopping; and a state-of-the-art, live entertainment venue. In addition, The Cordish Companies, in partnership with Taubman Company, developed the $150 million Charleston Place in Charleston, South Carolina. Charleston Place, a five-star hotel combined with high-end retail and entertainment, is consistently voted one of the top 50 hotel/resorts in the world.
The Cordish Companies is under development with several other major hotel and casino resorts in the United States and internationally.
