New 1,173-key Marriott property in Miami looks set to become the city’s premier conference and event hotel.
Miami Worldcenter, a new mixed-use development in Florida’s famous coastal city, will feature a vast 1,173-key Marriott hotel that will be positioned as one of the city’s most coveted venues. We find out more about this exciting project.
The transformative Miami Worldcenter scheme
One of the biggest developments in the United States at the moment is Miami Worldcenter, a transformative complex of retail, commerce, hospitality and exhibition space, as well as private residences and over 2,000 hotel rooms. According to its website, Miami Worldcenter will be “a dynamic urban core of diversity and excitement” that “brings a new energy to Miami with a compelling blend of exceptional retail, hospitality, residential, and commercial offerings in one unique location”.
One of the most hotly anticipated sections of this 30-acre development is the Marriott Marquis Miami Worldcenter Hotel & Expo Center, a large-scale hospitality scheme that will provide visitors to the area with not only a place to stay, but a base from which to explore this exciting new chapter in Miami’s history and to attend the many conferences, events and expositions that are sure to take off here once the Covid-19 crisis has passed.
Marriott Marquis in Miami
Geared primarily towards business travellers and those in town to attend events at the Expo Center, the 1,173-key Marriott Marquis Miami Worldcenter Hotel & Expo Center aims to give its customers the very best in contemporary lodgings, services and offerings. Set within a 5-star new-build property delivering panoramic views out over the city, the hotel is conveniently located right at the heart of the new Miami Worldcenter complex, which itself is situated mid-way between Miami’s CBD and the iconic South Beach area.
The project team is working to create the most cutting-edge conference hotel in the city, boasting over 600,000 sq ft of meeting, exhibition and event space – including a 65,000 sq ft Grand Ballroom, 42,000 sq ft Junior Ballroom, 110,000 sq ft of dedicated exhibit space, 80,000 sq ft of pool/event outdoor space and a 1,500-seater theatre. And the architecture of the new scheme is equally ambitious, with four towers rising behind a lower podium in a design concept that will help shape the skyline of this exciting new area of Miami.
