Seminoles now on the map

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel gains grisly notorietyTabloid darling Anna Nicole Smith attracted even more publicity after her sudden death on Thursday. And now, so may the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - one of her favorite hangouts in South Florida.

Though time will tell whether the Seminole Hard Rock or Room 607, where Smith stayed, become macabre tourist attractions, public relations specialist Virginia Sheridan said the venue now has a higher profile given the amount of news coverage, television footage and photographs taken of the site.

"At the end of day, more people know that there is a Seminole Hard Rock in Fort Lauderdale than ever before," said Sheridan, president of M. Silver & Associates, who handles public relations for the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. "More people know, from what they saw, that it's a very attractive place; attractive enough to attract a pretty high-profile celebrity with a lot of money who could stay anywhere."
