Palma de Mallorca, February 13, 2015 – RIU Hotels & Resorts has opened the Riu Plaza Miami Beach, its first hotel in the United States with the Riu Plaza city brand. After several months of refurbishment and an investment of 20 million dollars, the Hotel Riu Florida Beach has reopened, but is now converted into a hotel with a completely new concept: the Hotel Riu Plaza Miami Beach. Keeping its characteristic façade, the hotel has totally changed its interior structure and design to give its facilities the service standards of the modern and cosmopolitan Riu Plaza line.

The new Riu Plaza Miami Beach maintains its 284 rooms, which have been redesigned and new bathrooms fitted; the contemporary style of the new design features glass and steel finishes. Furthermore, it now offers a new Chill Out area, the new Capital Take Away in the lobby, with drinks and sandwiches to go; and a new poolside snack bar.

The new hotel boasts an exceptional location on one of Miami’s most important thoroughfares: Collins Avenue, and has direct access to the famous Miami Beach boardwalk and sands. It also stands just a few minutes from the renowned Ocean Drive, with its many restaurants and bars, and is only 25 minutes from Miami International Airport. The hotel is also perfect for visitors looking for a little shopping, since it is close to Lincoln Road, famous for its stores, and has direct transport to Miami’s most important malls.

It is possible to book on an accommodation-only, bed-and-breakfast or half-board basis, and the hotel has free Wi-Fi Internet throughout, including in rooms, as well as a full gym.

The Riu Plaza group of hotels will have a second member in the United States by the end of 2015. The Riu Plaza New York Times Square is currently being built in the heart of Manhattan.
