We construct the most general solution in type-II string theory that represents N coincident non-extremal rotating NS5-branes and determine the relevant thermodynamic quantities. We show that in the field theory limit, it has an exact description. In particular, it can be obtained by an O(3,3) duality transformation on the exact string background for the coset model SL(2,R)_{-N}/U(1) \times SU(2)_N. In the extreme supersymmetric limit we recover the multicenter solution, with a ring singularity structure, that has been discussed recently.
