The first property in Intercontinental Hotels Group’s new upper midscale Atwell Suites brand, which IHG launched last year, is scheduled to open in Miami in summer of 2021. The 90-room Atwell Suites Miami Bricknell will be located in the city’s financial center, part of a mixed-use development which will also include a 140-room property under IHG’s Hotel Indigo flag.
IHG describes Atwell Suites as “a design-led, dynamic, all-suites hotel brand optimized for longer stays of up to six nights.” Signature features would include a lobby space with a breakfast area, lounge and bar, as well as The Common, a co-working space, and a meeting room called The Study.
Suites include zones for living and sleeping, a wet bar with under counter refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker and sink, a work area with a high-top desk, a pull-out sofa, an oversized vanity in the bathroom, and a two-sided cabinet “that can be easily accessed from both the guestroom and the bathroom”.
The Miami property is the first of 20 Atwell Suites either under planning or in development, in US locations including Austin, Charlotte, Denver and Phoenix, with construction expected to begin on additional properties “in the coming months.”
