MIAMI, Fla. – IHG Hotels & Resorts recently announced the first Atwell Suites hotel is now under construction in Miami.
Expected to open by summer 2021, the first Atwell Suites will be a 90-room hotel located in Brickell, an urban neighborhood that is home to Miami and South Florida’s financial district, as well as many foreign consulates. The hotel is part of a new high-rise, mixed-use property that will also include a 140-room Hotel Indigo Miami Brickell. This property is owned by Francisco Arocha, Pedro F. Villar, Albert Ovadia, and Sunview Companies.
The first Atwell Suites is now under construction in the Miami neighborhood of Brickell at 145 SW 11th Street.
Atwell Suites is IHG’s newest brand, introduced in 2019 as a design-led all-suites hotel brand optimized for longer stays of up to six nights. The brand has been well received by owners, with 20 properties now under planning and development across the U.S., in vibrant markets such as Austin, Tex.; Charlotte, N.C.; Denver, Col; and Phoenix, Az. Construction is expected to begin on additional Atwell Suites properties in the coming months.
“We created Atwell Suites as a result of continuous collaboration and dialogue with an enthusiastic advisory board comprised of IHG owners to offer travelers something truly different in the upper-midscale space. The all-suites segment is fast growing and remains very resilient with strong owner interest throughout 2020,” said Karen Gilbride, vice-president, Avid Hotels and Atwell Suites, IHG. “We congratulate Sunview Companies, and our other owners who have been among the first to sign on to develop an Atwell Suites hotel. We’re excited to continue the momentum of this brand and look forward to welcoming our first guests next year.”
The company has also released a variety of new renderings showcasing the design of the Atwell Suites brand, including the main lobby space meant to bring people together around the breakfast area, lounge and bar; The Common, a space on the second floor lobby inspired by coworking lounges that provides a place for guests to work and relax; and The Study, a bookable meeting room that is tech-enabled with everything needed for a productive meeting.
All suites include distinct zones for living and sleeping; a wet bar with under-counter refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, and bar sink; a work area with a high-top desk; a pull-out sofa; an oversized vanity in the bathroom; and a two-sided closet that can be easily accessed from both the guestroom and the bathroom.
