NATIONAL REPORT—Hotels are being developed in major gateway cities in the U.S. Here’s a look at the projects:
NH Collection New York Madison Avenue
NH Collection New York Madison Avenue, the first NH Hotel Group property to open in North America, is expected to open in April. Featuring 288 rooms, many with views of the New York City skyline, the hotel’s design was inspired by Madison Avenue’s “Golden Age of Advertising.”
The lobby will feature fireplaces, rest areas and workspaces, while the F&B offerings will be a highlight of the property, including a cocktail bar and an original tea cocktail concept, Suite & Tea. Other amenities include a fitness center and multifunctional space for up to 30 people.
Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero
The Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero is expected to open May 1. Located on the top 11 floors of the 48-story 345 California Center in the city’s Financial District, the hotel will reopen this spring after extensive enhancements as a Four Seasons.
The property was designed by interior design firm Marzipan, which was inspired by key moments in the region’s history and symbols of the city itself. All 155 rooms and suites have been completely redesigned, with new natural wood floors; modern furnishings; a palette of textures with splashes of color; soaking tubs; and flexible floor plans. Amenities include a street-level restaurant and bar, as well as 24/7 fitness and business centers.
Grand Hyatt Miami Beach
The Grand Hyatt Miami beach is expected to open in 2023 adjacent to the Miami Beach Convention Center, which underwent a $600-million renovation that was completed last year. The 17-story hotel is being developed by real estate development and investment company Terra and real estate and property management company Turnberry.
Hotel features are expected to include 12 floors of guestrooms; two floors of meeting spaces and ballrooms that will complement the convention center; a resort-style pool deck; and retail space at street level. An elevated skybridge will enable event attendees to move freely between the hotel and convention center in a climate-controlled, art-filled corridor.
1 Hotel San Francisco
Pebblebrook Hotel Trust and SH Hotels and Resorts will transform Hotel Vitale to the sustainability focused, mission-driven and luxury experiential 1 Hotel San Francisco, with an expected opening in 2021 following a full renovation and conversion.
Located on the Embarcadero waterfront, it will undergo a $25-million renovation. The hotel will offer nature-inspired designs and environmentally focused aesthetics throughout guestrooms and suites; public areas; and meeting and event venues. The hotel will feature F&B offerings inspired by organic ingredients found in Northern California. The property will also feature a full-service spa and fitness center.
SH Hotels & Resorts, a subsidiary of Starwood Capital Group, will manage the property following the completion of the renovation and rebranding program.
