Hyatt Hotels has purchased the 380-room Thompson Miami Beach hotel and plans to rebrand it as The Confidante upon opening. The hotel will join the existing properties in the recently launched The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand.
“The acquisition of this high-quality hotel allows Hyatt continued strategic growth in a critical market for both the company and for our newest brand, The Unbound Collection by Hyatt,” said Stephen Haggerty, global head, real estate and capital strategy for Hyatt. “We are thrilled to expand our presence in Miami Beach, a market in which we have great unmet demand from our guests. The property will have the freedom to establish and maintain its individuality and distinct character while benefiting from the operational excellence and efficiencies that come from being part of Hyatt.”
The Confidante will take cues from its mid-century modern design that pays homage to the vibrant feeling of the city in the 1950s. Back then, it was the tallest modern building in Miami Beach, originally opening as the 18-floor Lord Tarleton Hotel making headlines and representing a boom for the city’s economy. The Confidante will pay tribute to its deep historical roots in Miami Beach with historical details throughout its spaces, bright colours, whimsical accents and a relaxed, elegant vibe.
Located in close proximity to South Beach, The Confidante will feature 30 suites, two restaurants, two heated swimming pools, direct beach access, a rooftop spa, a full service salon, an indoor/outdoor fitness experience, in-room dining, a craft cocktail bar and a tropical garden. The property will also have 35,000+ square feet of indoor and outdoor flexible, multi-functional venue space.
Hyatt’s acquisition of the hotel is expected to be complete in late April.
