With Miami's status as an international destination and the City's consistent rating as one of the top five hospitality markets in the country, Chile's Atton Hotels is the latest brand to break into Miami's hotel development scene with its first hospitality project in the United States. Located at 1500 SW 1st Ave. in Downtown Miami's Brickell Financial District, the 275-room, 12-story Atton Brickell Hotel, Miami will bring a full-service experience at attractive rates to the urban core.
The $65 million Atton Brickell Hotel project will create approximately 400 construction and 130 permanent positions, and is slated for delivery in early 2016. Amenities will include an on-site restaurant with curbside tables, nearly 7,000 square feet of pre-function and meeting space for business and social events, a bar and pool bar, and 177 parking spaces.
"Miami is a global destination for business and leisure travelers alike," said Francisco Levine, CEO of Atton Hotels. "Miami outperforms most other U.S. markets in visitors and is considered the capital of Latin America, where we already have strong brand recognition and a large client base. Opening a flagship hotel in Miami is a natural move and we expect Atton Brickell Hotel to attract business travelers who want an economical, full-service experience with Latin American flavor."
Atton Hotels currently has four hotels with nearly 1,000 rooms. The existing properties in Chile and Peru offer conveniences business and leisure travelers appreciate, such as a central location, ample guestrooms, and large public areas, as well as friendly and timely service at mid-priced rates. Downtown Miami has seen a surge of hotel development in recent years, including Aloft Miami-Brickell, Hampton Inn & Suites, and B2 Miami Downtown, just to name a few. The growth is amplified by the area's rising corporate and residential population, which includes a surge in new-to-market companies and an 80% spike in residents over the past decade, according to the Miami Downtown Development Authority.
Atton Brickell Hotel, Miami is within walking distance of dozens of commercial and residential buildings, as well as an eclectic mix of upscale dining, shopping and entertainment options. The hotel, located next to Le Parc at Brickell, a 128-unit luxury condo with 128 residences currently under construction, will offer guests panoramic views of downtown Miami and Simpson Park, with its eight acres of botanical gardens, nature trails and exotic vegetation. The hotel is a short walk to Miami's public transportation Metrorail and Metromover systems, the Shops at Mary Brickell Village, Brickell CityCentre complex, as well as dozens of additional retail, dining and entertainment establishments in the area.
