Melia Hotels are expanding their global portfolio with the introduction of ME Miami, the ME brand’s first foray into the US market. The bayfront property is slated to open its doors in spring 2015.
The hotel will be located in the former Casa Moderna Hotel at 1100 Biscayne Boulevard, which will be in close proximity to Zaha Hadid’s new project, and the new Miami World Center, which will include a large shopping mall.
The 129 room hotel will feature two rooftop pools, more than 5,000 square feet of beverage, dining and event space, and a new spa. One of the property’s signature food and beverage amenities will include the first ever STK Rebel, a casual version of the traditional steakhouse, which will include indoor and outdoor dining options.
Furthermore, ME’s signature Aura Managers will be onsite as experts on downtown Miami and its cultural offerings.
The announcement of ME Miami follows the highly successful summer 2014 launches of ME Mallorca and ME Ibiza as well as the celebrated ME London opening in 2013. The brand will continue to expand with the development of three future properties in crucial markets including ME Milan Il Duca and ME Caracas, both slated to open in 2015, and Zaha Hadid’s ME Dubai slated to open in 2016.
