as the Hilton Miami Downtown

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - May 8, 2008 - Travelers to Miami will have even more to choose from as Hilton Hotels & Resorts opened the doors to its newest metropolitan property, the Hilton Miami Downtown. Located in Miami’s bustling and burgeoning downtown district, the contemporary 527-room hotel features newly renovated guestrooms, including 58 suites that overlook Biscayne Bay and the downtown skyline. The Hilton Miami Downtown is a premier full-service hotel located near the city’s financial district, recently built Adrienne Ardsht Performing Arts Center, and world-class restaurants and shopping opportunities. Its location coupled with expansive meeting space makes the hotel an ideal choice for business, leisure and convention guests. The new Hilton joins two others: the Hilton Miami Airport and the Hilton Bentley on South Beach. 

The hotel previously operated as the Miami Biscayne Hotel, the Radisson Miami Downtown, Renaissance Miami Biscayne Bay and Wyndham Biscayne Bay.

The Hilton Miami Downtown is operated by Argent Ventures, LLC under a franchise license agreement with Hilton Inns, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hilton Hotels Corporation. The hotel is owned by Morgan Stanley and Argent Ventures, and managed by Pyramid Hotel Group. 

“This centrally-located hotel offers guests easy access to the best of Miami, from beaches to business,” says Jeff Diskin, senior vice president, Brand Management, Hilton Hotels & Resorts. “We are pleased to offer guests more opportunities to stay with us in South Florida with this new edition to our portfolio.” 

Each guestroom has been newly furnished with the Hilton Serenity Collection® of upscale in-room amenities, which includes the Hilton Serenity Bed Suite Dreams® mattress by Serta®, Pacific Coast® mattress pads and top-quality linens and pillows. Standard amenities also include the Hilton Serenity Bath Collection, featuring the exclusive Crabtree & Evelyn line of La Source® bath products; a Cuisinart® dual-cup, single brew coffeemaker and Lavazza® coffee; and the easy-to-set Hilton Family alarm clock with MP3 player connectivity. All of the hotel’s 528 rooms are equipped with 27-inch screen televisions and high-speed Internet access. 

Just minutes away from South Beach, American Airlines Arena, Coconut Grove, Miami Seaquarium, Orange Bowl and Miami International Airport; ten minutes from some of the most amazing world-class beaches; and five minutes from the Port of Miami; the Hilton Miami Downtown boasts a premium location for all guests.
