RIU Hotels & Resorts has opened the Riu Plaza Miami Beach, its first hotel in the United States with the Riu Plaza city brand.
After several months of refurbishment and an investment of $20 million, the Hotel Riu Florida Beach has reopened after being converted into a hotel with a new concept – the Hotel Riu Plaza Miami Beach. Keeping its characteristic facade, the hotel has totally changed its interior structure and design to give its facilities the service standards of the modern and cosmopolitan Riu Plaza line.
The Riu Plaza Miami Beach’s 284 rooms have been redesigned and new bathrooms fitted, with the contemporary style of the new design features glass and steel finishes. Furthermore, it now offers a new Chill Out area, the new Capital Take Away in the lobby, with drinks and sandwiches to go and a new poolside snack bar.
The hotel has direct access to the famous Miami Beach boardwalk and sands, and is a few minutes from the renowned Ocean Drive, home to many restaurants and bars, and is 25 minutes from Miami International Airport.
The hotel can be booked on an accommodation-only, bed-and-breakfast or half-board basis.
It has free WiFi Internet throughout, as well as a full gym.
The Riu Plaza group of hotels will have a second member in the United States by the end of 2015. The Riu Plaza New York Times Square is currently being built in the heart of Manhattan.
