Virgin Hotels has announced plans to open a brand new hotel in Miami, Florida.
Virgin Hotels Miami is set to break ground in 2020 and is due to open in 2023. It will be managed by Virgin Hotels and developed by Blue Jay Capital with BLUR Workshop as the architect.
“I’m personally very passionate about this property, as it brings Virgin Hotels into a city that holds a great deal of significance for us. In addition to being my home, Miami is the headquarters of Virgin Hotels, so this is a milestone that has been a long time coming,” Virgin Hotels CEO Raul Leal said. “Miami is one of our nation’s premier vacation and nightlife destinations and a major cultural hub. Our team cannot wait to make our mark here by bringing the Virgin Hotels experience to this lively city.”
Located in the heart of Downtown Miami’s Financial District, the new hotel will be in the Brickell neighbourhood – a hotspot for locals and visitors alike. Just steps away is Brickell City Centre, a brand new shopping, business and residential area that is currently being developed.
The 40-storey new-build hotel will feature nearly 250 chambers, a spa and more than 15,000 square feet of meeting and event space. There’ll also be multiple dining and drinking outlets, including Virgin Hotels’ signature culinary experience Commons Club, a restaurant, bar and modern social club, a beer garden live music venue and Funny Library Coffee Shop, a communal work space that will house an assortment of books and games.
The Miami hotel will feature a three-storey terraced rooftop with pool, lounge and event space designed to feel like a rooftop conservatory, perfect for chilling out and catching up with friends or partying until the sun comes up. Virgin Hotels Miami, like all Virgin Hotels, will implement the celebrated “No Nickel and Diming” policy, which includes street-priced minibars, free WiFi, and zero resort fees, urban fees or amenity fees.
The hotel joins Virgin Hotels’ existing properties, including Virgin Hotels Chicago, Virgin Hotels San Francisco, and Virgin Hotels Dallas, which is due to open later this year. The brand has also broken ground on four other locations: New York, Nashville, New Orleans and Edinburgh, UK. Forthcoming hotels have also been announced in Palm Springs and Silicon Valley, including the newest acquisition, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas which will be converted to Virgin Hotels in 2020.
