“Hilton is recognized globally as a leader in hospitality, and we felt its full-service Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand would be an ideal partner,” Ana Lopez-Blazquez, executive VP of Baptist Health South Florida, said in a statement. “In addition, this property will have the largest meeting space in the area to accommodate conferences, events and meetings.”

The property's event space will consist of a 6,200-square-foot ballroom, more than 2,000 square feet of meeting space and a 24-hour business center. The property will also offer a grab-and-go pantry, water bar and the option for guests to check in digitally.
