Spanish hotel chain Melia has announced the launch of its first property in the US. The ME Miami is slated to open in spring 2013.
The downtown property, owned by the private equity CGI Merchant Group, will take over the current location of Casa Moderna Hotel at 1100 Biscayne Boulevard.
The district is regarded as one to watch, as it will be the locale for starchitect Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum, and the new Miami World Centre.
The hotel will completely remodeled and feature 129 guestrooms, two rooftop pools, spa and event spaces, plus a STK Rebel steakhouse restaurant.
