This month, after nearly three years of planning and development, highly-anticipated lifestyle hotel EAST, Miami, is accepting reservations and opening its doors on May 31st in the heart of Miami’s Brickell district.
The anchor hotel for Swire Properties’ $1.05 billion (£728 million), 5.4 million square-foot mixed-used development, and the first of its kind for the Hong Kong-based brand in the United States, will feature destination dining, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, cutting edge technology, and quality amenities available to both local residents and visitors to Miami.
The hotel will offer a distinctive and unconventional experience for individuals who seek innovation, style and personalised service, building upon the success of the EAST brand, which includes EAST, Hong Kong and EAST, Beijing.
EAST, Miami offers 352 guest rooms to include eight suites and 89 residence suites all owned and operated by Swire Hotels. Ranging in size from 300 to 1,800 square feet, the contemporary rooms, suites, and residence suites feature balconies with views of the Miami skyline and Biscayne Bay, floor-to-ceiling windows, walk-in rain shower, and complimentary WiFi. The one-, two- and three-bedroom residence suite options also offer fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities along with access to all amenities and services of the hotel.
The overall design of EAST, Miami was developed by award-winning, Miami-based architectural firm Arquitectonica, with specific restaurant and lounge interiors designed by Studio Collective, embracing both ancient and modern day building methods. Within each room, public space, and lobby, guests will delight at the collaboration between New York’s Clodagh Design, an agency who embraces both ancient and cutting edge methods in an effort to comfort not only the body but also the mind.
