Hilton signed a franchise agreement with nonprofit Baptist Health South Florida to launch the Hilton Miami/Dadeland. Designed by CallisonRTKL, the 184-room hotel will be located on the Baptist Hospital of Miami campus and will include 34 extended-stay guestrooms. The hotel is slated to open in 2018.
Managed by Interstate Hotels and Resorts, the 150,000-square-foot property will have 150 guestrooms, 34 rooms tailored to guests staying for longer periods, a wellness center with a fitness room and heated outdoor pool, a 24-hour business center, a farm-to-table restaurant, a pantry, a water bar with bottled water from around the world and room service.
Meeting space at the hotel will include a 6,200-square-foot ballroom and over 2,000-square-foot flexible meeting space.
CallisonRTKL, the architect for the hotel, will draw inspiration from healthcare and hospitality design. Special design details will include Cuban tile and pineapple-themed wall art and textiles with abstract lines representative of the fruit’s texture. The pineapple is Baptist Health’s logo.
The hotel will be located to the west of the main entrance of Baptist Hospital and near Dadeland Mall and regional transportation hubs, including Miami International Airport, Miami MetroRail Dadeland North station and Tamiami Executive Airport. Also nearby will be the Miami Cancer Institute, a $430-million clinical and research center, and the Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute.
