    Situated on a private peninsula on Blue Lagoon, the Miami Airport Hilton is embarking on a new voyage – a complete makeover of the hotel’s 500 guest rooms and suites, guest elevators and a new fitness center; all expected to be completed by Fall 2011. To accent the natural beauty outside the hotels doorsteps, the rejuvenation project will blend tropical accents and sustainable products with a contemporary design of comfort and the feeling of home. Overlooking a natural lagoon teeming with a variety of local flora and fauna including manatees, iguanas and tropical birds, the Miami Airport Hilton’s reinvention will pay homage to its natural surroundings. The new guest room design features sustainable products to support energy efficiency while complimenting contemporary decor in a nature inspired, earth-tone color palette, alongside dark wood furnishings, and colorful and vibrant accents of reds and oranges like the burning Florida sunset.

    All guest rooms, many offering city views of the sparkling downtown skyline are well-appointed, welcoming guests in a relaxed, contemporary setting. The rooms are outfitted with Hilton Serenity collection’s plush-top beds and down duvets, wireless Internet access, a 37” high-definition flat screen television, and a Hilton alarm clock with MP3 player connection, as well as a sitting area, spacious work desk, and laptop-size in-room safe. Guest bathrooms will also be fully renovated evoking a spa-like feeling with glass-enclosed showers and neutral ceramic tile throughout. The bathrooms will also feature all-new granite bath and counter, new fixtures and built-in shelving stocked with Hilton’s new signature Peter Thomas Roth bath amenities.

    In 2010, the hotel completed renovations of all guest room and meeting room corridors, the Cove Ballroom, as well as a refurbishment of Coral Café and the Blue Lagoon Saloon Bar. In addition to its renovated accommodations, this AAA Three Diamond award winning property offers 30,000 sq ft of flexible function space, international cuisine in its restaurant, light menus in its coffee shop and Cove/ Blue Lagoon bars as well as amenities in guest suites and Executive Floor rooms.
