Meliá Hotels International is set to open its second Meliá Hotels & Resorts property in the United States in 2015.
The Spanish hotel chain will open and manage the newly constructed Meliá Costa Hollywood Beach Resort in the Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale area of South Florida. The new condominium hotel property will be the company’s second property under the Meliá Hotels & Resorts brand in the United States.
Developed by Liberty Grande, LLC., the new project will consist of a combination of 304 fully furnished hotel and residential “smart units” ranging from studios to one, two and three bedrooms as part of a new six-storey Costa Hollywood Beach Resort community. Each room will feature a sleek interior design with natural colour palettes, and equipped with advanced technology including a multilingual electronic concierge, flat screen televisions complete with movies on demand, full kitchens with energy efficient appliances and a state of the art automated valet parking system.
“We remain steadfast in our expansion within the United States, starting with the ME Miami in 2015, the first stateside ME by Meliá hotel, followed by the Innside Manhattan in early 2016” stated Gabriel Escarrer, Vice Chairman and CEO of Meliá Hotels International. “The opening of Meliá Costa Hollywood will strengthen our presence in the United States market and attract global travellers.”
Meliá Costa Hollywood will boast luxurious amenities including a spa and fitness facility, rooftop infinity pool and sun deck, five fine-dining restaurants, and other amenities including in-room dining service, a gourmet coffee shop, rooftop bar and grill, and a business centre.
The new Meliá Costa Hollywood will overlook Hollywood Beach with views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Intercostal Waterway with its boating activities. Ideal for visitors seeking a taste of South Florida’s unique culture and entertainment, Meliá Costa Hollywood is 10 minutes from Aventura Mall and five minutes from Gulfstream Park both of which offer luxury shops, cafés and fine dining.
With extensive experience in developing high-end commercial properties across the United States and Canada, Liberty Grande has developed more than 2 million ft² of property.
“We believe Meliá Hotels & Resorts is the ideal partner for the new Costa Hollywood Beach Resort,” said Moses Bensusan, Managing Member of Liberty Grande, LLC. “With its unwavering commitment to service and global experience in hotel operation and management, Meliá is no better brand to align ourselves with.”
