What Chile's Atton Hotels likes about Miami

Chilean hospitality company Atton Hotels is reportedly set to open its first U.S. property by June 2016 in Miami's Brickell neighborhood.

The company's CEO Francisco Levine told the South Florida Business Journal that the $65-million project has grown in scope since it broke ground in May 2014. Instead of the originally planned 275 rooms, the property will open with 298 rooms. 

Atton Hotels is actively seeking more sites in Miami, Levine added. The company is prepared to acquire existing hotels or vacant sites for new construction. He did not confirm a timeline for when those sites would be secured.
