Le Méridien to debut in Fort Lauderdale in 2017

Le Méridien Fort Lauderdale Airport
The hotel is being transformed by Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates and Daniels Brothers.

Starwood Hotels is scheduled to open its Parisian brand, Le Méridien, in Fort Lauderdale, Dania Beach, Fla., in 2017. The development is in partnership with owner and real estate developer Charles S. Cohen.

Located near Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Fort Lauderdale Everglades Cruise Port, the hotel will have access to several beaches, downtown Fort Lauderdale and Miami Beach.

Following its $30-million renovation and conversion, the hotel will have a transformed glass curtain wall façade and upgrades to the porte-cochere, as well as large-scale artwork in high-impact areas. Le Méridien Fort Lauderdale Airport will have 245 guestrooms and suites with floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views, as well as two redesigned restaurants – one with a mid-century modern, open kitchen concept – and the Latitude Bar.
