AKA, the hospitality division of Korman Communities has recently announced its newest venture, Hotel AKA Brickell. AKA has been an integral force in the long-stay industry, offering hotel residences for weeks to months. This is AKA’s first hotel in Miami, with other hotel residences in major cities such as New York, Los Angeles, DC and London.
Formerly the Conrad Miami Hotel, the hotel will be transformed to suit the tranquil and modern style of AKA. The hotel boasts 36 stories and 201 rooms with noteworthy panoramic view of Biscayne Bay and the cityscape. Small renovations will take place while the hotel remains open until the spring of 2022, in an effort to bring key components of AKA’s brand to Miami.
AKA prides itself on its tranquil and modern rooms with refined amenities, including a rooftop pool, fitness center, spa and business center.
The AKA team searched long and hard to find the perfect location to open their new Brickell hotel, and they are excited to have found an amazing space in such a vivacious city.
“We’ve always envisioned AKA in Miami, a city that is globally appealing, vibrant and filled with opportunity,” said Larry Korman, President of AKA.
“Finding the perfect property is always a journey, and we knew we discovered a gem in this architecturally significant and well-located high-rise offering. The breadth of design, culture and energy adds great synergy with the DNA of AKA, and we are beyond thrilled to introduce the AKA brand to Brickell Miami," Korman further explained.
Hotel AKA Brickell came at the perfect time, as Miami has been rapidly growing in recent years. Miami has started to feel less like Florida and more like Manhattan, with Brickell quickly increasing in popularity. Korman says they are extremely happy to have entered the business at such a lucrative time.
Korman expressed, “This expansion comes at an opportune time as Miami is experiencing an influx of individuals relocating and travelers alike who are looking for an evolved hotel experience that feels more livable than your traditional hotel accommodation.”
