Hilton Miami Downtown Revamps Event Space

The Hilton Miami Downtown by Resort World Miami has redesigned its meeting and event space as part of a $35 million property-wide renovation project. 

The refreshed 45,000 square feet of flexible meeting space offers space for events of up to 2,000 guests. The property has 19 meeting rooms, including five boardrooms, as well as one of Downtown Miami’s largest ballrooms, at 17,000 square feet. There is also a 2,500 space indoor parking lot and a football-field sized loading dock that can load automobiles, staging and other large equipment directly into the ballroom. 

The renovations also encompassed the hotel’s 527 guest rooms, including its 37 suites and four Presidential Suites. The revamped accommodations now have a design emphasizing warm colors and contemporary lines, plus the signature Hilton Serenity Bed and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Miami skyline. 

Brisa Bistro, the hotel’s breakfast, lunch and dinner restaurant, was also redesigned as a fusion experience combining Caribbean, South American and European cuisine. The Club Level Lounge on the 16th floor was also refreshed. 

Looking ahead, later this year the hotel is also planning a multimillion-dollar upgrade to its rooftop pool deck, CityVu outdoor bar and grill and the 1601 Lounge

The Hilton Miami Downtown is in Miami’s Performing Arts District, on the site of the former Omni International Mall. The renovation was spearheaded by HBA Atlanta (Hirsch Bender Associates)
