Baptist Health South Florida and Virginia-based Interstate Hotels held a grand opening for the new Hilton Miami Dadeland, a hotel with amenities for healthy living.
The 184-room property at 9100 N. Kendall Drive in Miami includes fitness equipment in each room, a meditation garden, on-site walking and jogging trails; and a farm-to-table restaurant. Thirty-four of its rooms are designated for extended stays.
"Early on, we knew we wanted to introduce a unique product to the market that would serve a variety of needs," said Ana Lopez- Blazquez, chief strategy and transformation officer for Baptist Health. "Hilton embraced our vision of a multipurpose hotel, with rooms equipped for extended stays, and our desire to incorporate wellness into the design of the guest rooms and amenities."
Coral Gables-based CallisonRTKL designed the hotel. It has 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space and a 6,250-square-foot ballroom with a private outdoor area.
The hotel's restaurant is Table 55, led by Executive Chef Andrew Edwards. Its menu includes ingredients sourced from local farms and the hotel's on-site garden.
James Shandor is the general manager. Room rates start at $149 a night.
Hilton Miami Dadeland broke ground in December 2016 after Baptist Health and Hilton Worldwide announced their partnership in August that year. The property complements the patient offerings at Miami Cancer Institute.
South Florida is ripe to capture a share of the growing worldwide medical tourism market. The trend is valued at $50 billion globally.
