An 11-story hotel bearing the names of two hospitality titans -- Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites -- opened to fanfare in early December.
Built by Procacci Development Corp. and operated by Real Hospitality Group, the 232-room hotel boasts a design that evokes Miami architecture, thanks to Procacci Vice President of Hospitality Design Katherine Cortese.
“The facility celebrates the vibe that Miami is known for, while providing guests the experience that is expected with the Hilton brands,” she said.
In addition to serving as a vacation destination, the hotel’s 5,000 square feet of banquet and conference space will enable it to attract special events and conference clients.
The hotel’s centerpiece is likely to be Bar Flamenco, a “lively food and unique beverage venue” that feted guests of the grand opening with different cuisines and special drinks.
"Bar Flamenco gives us an advantage to deliver a fresh local food experience to our guests," Ben Seidel, president and CEO at Real Hospitality Group, said.
While Homewood Suites rooms have kitchenettes to accommodate extended-stay guests, all rooms have flat-screen TVs, high-speed internet and signature-brand bedding.
