The Langford Hotel will open in mid-March, about five months after its planned opening date.
Stambul along with Trust Hospitality developed the 126-key hotel at 121 Southeast First Street in downtown Miami‘s Flagler district. When it opens March 14, the property will include the PB Station restaurant, as well as the Pawn Broker rooftop bar and terrace managed by the Pubbelly Restaurant Group.
Trust Hospitality will operate the hotel, which was previously the Miami National Bank. The property, built in 1925, was designated a historic site by the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. Part of the hotel conversion includes original and replicated moldings, antique-style trunks and boudoirs. Design company Bloom Miami replicated the Beaux Arts exterior façade.
The Langford will also feature a sky lobby on the second floor with a coffee bar, lounge and curated library. PB Station is a concept by the “Pubbelly Boys” partners – Andreas Schreiner, director of culinary operations, James Beard-nominated chef, Jose Mendin, and Sergio Navarro – and executive chef Guillermo Concha.
Introductory hotel rates will start at $219, excluding the two-story penthouse, the hotel said.
Stambul began the structural restoration two years ago and received building permits for the hotel conversion in December 2014. The company bought the site in 2013 for $2.7 million, according to Miami-Dade property records. – Katherine Kallergis
