Hyatt to debut Andaz brand in Florida

The Confidante Miami Beach is undergoing renovations and is slated to debut in the fourth quarter as the new Andaz Miami Beach. The new hotel, owned by Sunstone Hotel Investors, will have a barrier-free redesigned lobby, two reconceptualized pools and outdoor recreation experience, a spa and meeting spaces as well as restaurants developed with the hotel’s new culinary provider, José Andrés Group.

As part of the hotel’s renovation, the oceanfront property will temporarily suspend operations starting March 25 through the conclusion of the renovation.

"We are thrilled to unveil this new chapter for Hyatt as our hotel becomes the Andaz Miami Beach, blending the essence of Miami Beach with the allure of imaginative travel to stimulate guests’ curiosity and self-expression,” Andaz Miami Beach GM Amy Johnson said in a statement. “This exciting journey brings the luxury lifestyle Andaz brand to Florida along with exciting collaborations like Jose Andres Group. We look forward to welcoming back our guests and local community to a completely new and bold hotel, embodying the distinctly native experience and expressive nature of the Andaz brand, while still capturing the essence of Miami Beach.”

With three towers overlooking the beach, the hotel will have an oceanview check-in experience. Culinary offerings will include the restaurant outdoor terrace and a second level outdoor Andaz Lounge. The property will have 25,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space that includes ballrooms with ocean views as well as a pool equipped with technology that converts the space to a hard surface for gathering and activations in minutes.

This first Andaz hotel in Florida will increase the Hyatt Hotels’ brand footprint. With 29 global properties and more on the horizon, the Andaz brand continues to expand with a focus on inviting its guests to connect with their innermost curiosities and awaken to new experiences within their environment.
