Miami is a destination known for serious fun. Those who must travel there for serious business, however, have a new hotel option, according to Hyatt Hotels Corp., which yesterday announced the opening of a new Hyatt Centric hotel -- Hyatt Centric Brickell Miami -- in downtown Miami's Brickell financial district.

"Brickell has become a vibrant destination with a global appeal for both business and leisure travelers and is full of thrilling attractions and sights," said George Vizer, Hyatt's senior vice president of full-service franchise operations, Americas. "We are proud to grow the Hyatt Centric brand in the Miami area and have Hyatt Centric Brickell Miami at the epicenter of the city's redevelopment, offering the best of local cuisine, arts and culture, access to global businesses, and more."

Occupying the first 19 floors of the new 83-story Panorama Tower -- Miami's tallest building -- Hyatt Centric Brickell Miami has 208 guest rooms and suites, each of which has a furnished oversized balcony and Caribbean-themed artwork, as well as a full-service restaurant serving Cuban-inspired cuisine, a 24-hour fitness center, a resort-style heated pool and hot tub on the 19th floor, a 24-hour business center, and 7,500 square feet of meeting and event space.

"Our team of local experts has been specially trained to curate unique experiences based on guests' individual preferences, while contemporary guest rooms deliver everything today's travelers need and nothing they don't."
