Hotel amenities will be suited for business and leisure travel as well as patients and their families and will include 184-guest rooms, 34 tailored to extended stays, a 6,250 square-foot ballroom with additional meeting space options, health and wellness center with a fitness room, a heated outdoor pool, a farm-to-table restaurant, Starbucks, room service, and a 24-hour business center.
“We are excited to see the construction progress for the Hilton Miami Dadeland,” said Ana Lopez-Blazquez, chief executive officer, Baptist Health Enterprises. “The property will offer signature elements of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, unparalleled amenities and beautifully designed rooms – a nice compliment to the warmth and hospitality Baptist Health is known for.”
The building is being designed by local Coral Gables Architect, CallisonRTKL, infusing best practices from healthcare and hospitality design bringing a welcoming, compassionate and uplifting environment for hotel guests.
The property will be managed by Interstate Hotels & Resorts, which will soon welcome a General Manager and Director of Sales & Marketing to the pre-opening sales office that will open in the next few weeks.
