New Wellness-Themed Hilton Will Offer South Miami's Largest Meeting Space

A new full-service Hilton hotel in metropolitan Miami will fuse best practices from health care and hospitality, according to Hilton Worldwide.

Announced today, the new property in South Miami -- near Dadeland Mall and the Miami suburb of Kendall, FL -- will have 184 guest rooms, a 24-hour business center, a wellness center with a fitness room and heated outdoor pool, a water bar with bottled water from around the world, and a farm-to-table restaurant. 

Additionally, it will sport the area's largest meeting space: a 6,200-square-foot ballroom complemented by over 2,000 square feet of flexible meeting rooms.

"This property will have the largest meeting space in the area to accommodate conferences, events, and meetings," said Ana Lopez-Blazquez, executive vice president of Baptist Health South Florida, Hilton's partner on the 150,000-square-foot project, which will be located on the group's Baptist Hospital campus and include 34 rooms tailored to guests staying for long periods -- including hospital guests and their families.

"The Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand is beloved among travelers around the world, and Hilton Miami/Dadeland will bring the best of our brand to the local area," added Shawn McAteer, vice president, global brand management, full service brands, Hilton Worldwide. "This property will offer the signature elements of Hilton Hotels & Resorts -- unparalleled amenities, individualized service, and beautifully designed rooms -- to business and leisure travelers, as well as patients and their families."

The Hilton Miami/Dadeland is scheduled to open in late 2018.
