MIAMI, Fla. / ARLINGTON, Va. – February 15, 2019 – Following a ribbon cutting ceremony that took place yesterday, Baptist Health South Florida and Interstate Hotels & Resorts unveiled the new Hilton Miami Dadeland, an innovative hotel in the Kendall area of Miami with a distinct focus on wellness.

“We are excited to see the opening of Hilton Miami Dadeland,” said Ana Lopez- Blazquez, Chief Strategy & Transformation Officer for Baptist Health. “Early on, we knew we wanted to introduce a unique product to the market that would serve a variety of needs. Hilton embraced our vision of a multipurpose hotel, with rooms equipped for extended stays, and our desire to incorporate wellness into the design of the guest rooms and amenities.”

“We are proud to be working with Baptist Health South Florida to operate the Hilton Miami Dadeland with its dynamic environment and distinct lifestyle focus,” said Michael J. Deitemeyer, president and CEO of Interstate Hotels & Resorts. “Partnering with leading brands like Hilton and Baptist Health allows Interstate to accelerate our continued evolution.”

Designed by local Coral Gables Architect, CallisonRTKL, special design details infused throughout the hotel include Cuban tiles and pineapple-themed wall art and textiles with abstract lines, which represents the fruit’s symbol of hospitality and adds a touch of local style to the property. Hilton Miami Dadeland features 184 contemporary rooms, including 34 suites tailored to guests staying for extended periods, bringing a welcoming and uplifting environment for hotel guests.

The property offers Hilton’s revolutionary, state-of-the-art Five Feet to Fitness™ in-room wellness concept, bringing 11 different fitness equipment and accessory options into the guest room. Five Feet to Fitness™ is perfect for exercise enthusiasts who prefer to workout in private to maintain their routine. Furthering the focus on overall wellness for leisure and business travelers, Hilton Miami Dadeland features a health and wellness center with fitness room, meditation garden, heated outdoor pool and walking and jogging trails at the property.

Hilton Miami Dadeland offers the largest meeting and event space in the area with 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space, including a 6,250-square-foot ballroom with private outdoor patio and dedicated pre-function areas.

Executive Chef Andrew Edwards, culinary director of Table 55, created a flavorful, fresh and seasonal menu with the best ingredients from sustainable, local farms and producers, complemented with produce from the on-site garden.

“We are excited to introduce Table 55 at Hilton Miami Dadeland,” said Fernando Salazar, Senior Vice President of Food & Beverage of Interstate Hotels & Resorts. “At Table 55, we are committed to embracing sustainability in all we do, using fresh local produce in a creative way in all of our dishes, while delivering exceptional service. Table 55 is a testament to a new generation of hotel restaurants, celebrating creative dining concepts with a freestanding restaurant mentality to ensure it becomes a favorite spot for both locals and guests.”

In addition to the hotel’s restaurant, Hilton Miami Dadeland offers a grab-n-go pantry, Starbucks, a Wall of Water bar with bottled water from around the world and room service.

The hotel is led by General Manager James Shandor, Director of Sales & Marketing Rosa Albert and Executive Chef Edwards. Situated in the heart of Kendall and adjacent to Baptist Hospital of Miami, Hilton Miami Dadeland is located 13 miles from Miami Airport and two miles from Dadeland Mall and Metro Station, an area known for its convenient locale for business and leisure guests alike.
