Plans for a new 800-room Grand Hyatt hotel in Miami Beach in a prime location next to the city’s newly-renovated convention centre have been announced by Hyatt Hotels, the Terra Group and Turnberry.
The 17-storey Grand Hyatt Miami Beach, to be managed by Hyatt and scheduled to open in 2023, will be within walking distance of the Atlantic beachfront and attractions such as the Lincoln Road Mall and the Bass Museum.
The development is being led by David Martin of Terra and Jackie Soffer of Turnberry as a joint venture between the two development companies to give Miami Beach what they call “a true headquarters hotel for top-tier conventions and meetings”.
The building will include 12 floors of guestrooms, two floors of meeting spaces and ballrooms to complement the convention centre, and a resort-style pool deck with panoramic views of the city.
Hyatt senior vice president of development for the Americas David Tarr said: “At Hyatt, we believe in growing with intent and expanding our footprint in markets that matter most to our guests and World of Hyatt members.”
The new hotel will be only the second Grand Hyatt property in Florida, joining Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay.
