Latin American hotel brand to open Atton Brickell Miami on Friday
Atton Hotels will open its first U.S. hotel on Friday in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood.
Atton Brickell Miami, a $65 million hotel at 1500 Southwest First Avenue, features 275 guest rooms and suites with views of Brickell’s skyline and the nearly 8-acre Simpson Park.
The property also includes 4,000 square feet of meeting space, a rooftop pool with cabanas, a Vista bar with cocktails and tapas, a gym, a lobby bar and a full-service restaurant, Lima, helmed by chef Kyriacos Petrou, formerly of Shula’s Steakhouse at the Alexander Hotel.
The 12-story hotel, which is aiming for LEED certification, will have 177 parking spaces on site in addition to valet and street parking. On a tour of the property in April, general manager Claudia Di Gino told The Real Deal Atton Brickell’s target market falls between such nearby competition as the Hampton Inn, Courtyard Marriott and Urbano on the lower end, and on the higher end the Conrad, Four Seasons Miami, Viceroy and J.W. Marriott.
The hotel will offer introductory rates of $149.
Atton, which operates in Chile, Peru and Colombia, bought the nearly 40,000-square-foot site in 2013 for $6.3 million. It joins a limited number of Latin American operators in the South Florida market, including Grupo Posadas, Mexico’s largest, Argentina’s Faena Hotels and Fen Hotels, also based in Argentina.
