AccorHotels Introduces Pullman Miami Airport, North America's First Pullman Address
November 6, 2015 10:40am
Miami, November 6, 2015 - As part of AccorHotels continued expansion of its luxury and upscale portfolio of hotel brands worldwide, today the global hospitality group announced the introduction of Pullman Miami Airport, North America's first Pullman address. The Pullman Hotel, previously home to Sofitel Miami, is currently concluding a transformation, catering to the spirit of today's cosmopolitan and international business and leisure travelers, offering best-in-class service with a distinctive identity.
With the addition of the Pullman brand in North America, AccorHotels amplifies its hotel brand portfolio presence in the region, which currently includes Sofitel and Novotel. Today, there are more than 95 four- and five-star Pullman hotels and resorts in prime destinations in Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and now North America.
"I am proud to announce the first Pullman hotel in North America as we ramp up development of the AccorHotels portfolio in the region. The arrival of the brand signals our ambition to grow in North America as we forge ahead with the expansion of our hotel brands over the next couple of years," comments Christophe Alaux, CEO HotelServices, North America, Central America and Caribbean (NCAC) for AccorHotels. "Pullman has an incredible global presence in the upscale market, and we are certain that the brand will continue to experience great success as it enters new markets worldwide."
Style, Art, Design and Connectivity at the Heart of the Pullman brand
As Miami's newest upscale hotel brand, Pullman Miami Airport highlights style, art, design and connectivity - principal brand pillars - reflected in many areas throughout the hotel and during the entire guest experience. Overlooking a blue lagoon, the hotel is centrally located just a few minutes from Miami International Airport and various stylish urban epicenters such as the Design District, Wynwood Arts District, and South Beach.
A creative essence permeates the vibrant hotel comprised of 281 guest rooms and suites, all stylishly appointed with the best of the Pullman experience: modern furnishings, such as large desks with comfortable chairs, LED TVs with international channels, a personal safe, Keurig machines, bathroom amenities from C.O. Bigelow New York, feather pillows, and more.
Pullman Miami Airport features a revitalizing new color scheme for the façade of the building with revamped interiors lined with inspiring artwork and dressed with contemporary furnishings, including an updated front desk area and renovated lounge, bar and pool areas. A variety of existing amenities will also continue to be available including a Fit Lounge, swimming pool, tennis courts and jogging trails.
The hotel will remain an inviting address for group clientele, with 11,000 square feet of spectacular indoor and outdoor space for meetings and events, including chic banquet halls, private outdoor terraces, parlor meeting rooms and a stunning ballroom.
Reimagined Culinary Offerings
The renovation of Pullman Miami Airport will introduce two new dining concepts in 2016. "Tapastry by Pullman" will serve a tapas menu for casual after-work gatherings. An authentic wine-tasting experience can be found at "Vinoteca by Pullman," offering a large selection of wines by the glass, including grands crus from around the world and domestic wines chosen with advice from the cellar master. The hotel's existing La Riviera restaurant, Le Bar, and The Coffee Club will remain open.
The Pullman brand boasts a rich, avant-garde history dating back to the 19th century, when Pullman rail travel pioneered a new way to travel across the U.S., with luxury sleeping cars, appetizing food, plush dining cars, friendly service and a spacious, comfortable environment. Pullman was reborn in 2007 as an upscale hotel brand for a new generation of cosmopolitan, hyper-connected travelers.
Pullman Miami Airport is presently welcoming guests, with all details of its transformation scheduled to be completed by January 2016.
The hotel is owned by Laurus Corporation, a Los Angeles based real estate investment and development company, and will be managed by The Procaccianti Group.
