AccorHotels introduces Pullman Miami Airport

AccorHotels opened Pullman Miami Airport, North America's first Pullman address. The Pullman Hotel, previously home to Sofitel Miami, is currently undergoing a transformation scheduled to be completed by January 2016. Overlooking a lagoon, the hotel is located near the Miami International Airport and various urban epicenters such as the Design District, Wynwood Arts District, and South Beach.

Upon completion of the transformation, the property will have 281 guestrooms and suites, all with modern furnishings, such as desks with chairs, LED TVs with international channels, a safe, Keurig machines, bathroom amenities from C.O. Bigelow New York and feather pillows.

Pullman Miami Airport will also have a new color scheme for the façade of the building, while revamped interiors will showcase artwork and contemporary furnishings, including an updated front desk area and renovated lounge, bar and pool areas.

For events, the property will have 11,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor spaces, including banquet halls, private outdoor terraces, parlor meeting rooms and a ballroom.

The renovation of Pullman Miami Airport will similarly introduce two new dining concepts in 2016: "Tapastry by Pullman" and "Vinoteca by Pullman".  The hotel's existing La Riviera restaurant, Le Bar, and The Coffee Club will remain open.

The hotel is owned by Laurus Corporation, a Los Angeles based real estate investment and development company, and will be managed by The Procaccianti Group.

There are now over 95 four- and five-star Pullman hotels and resorts in Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and now North America.
