MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Nov. 24, 2014 — Thompson Hotels today announces the official opening of its namesake property in the Miami market and the flagship for the brand: Thompson Miami Beach, located at 4041 Collins Avenue. The 380-room upscale beachfront property debuts with a collaborative dream team that blends international appeal and local mindset. Globally revered British interior designer Martin Brudnizki presents a strikingly vibrant bohemian-beach chic concept that reestablishes the ideals of 1950s glamour, housed inside a historic Art Deco tower fully restored by Kobi Karp Architects. With a particular emphasis on local partnerships, Thompson Miami Beach has teamed up with Miami native and James Beard Award-winning chef Michelle Bernstein to introduce her new restaurant, Seagrape; nightlife impresarios Karim Masri and Nicola Siervo of KNR Hospitality Group to develop experience-driven cocktail venues, 1930s House and Crown Room; Miami’s star landscape architect Raymond Jungles to design lush, tropical landscaping; Miami designer Ashley Leimer of Dress Noble to create staff uniforms; and the homegrown Junior & Hatter salon out of the edgy Wynwood district to offer guests unique services.
“The opening of Thompson Miami Beach signals a major milestone in the growth and development of the Thompson brand,” said Niki Leondakis, CEO, Commune Hotels & Resorts, the international, multi-brand lifestyle hotel company that manages Thompson Hotels. “It is the first project to bear the brand name in the Southeast U.S. and truly showcases what our collection is about: a hotel experience that encapsulates the lifestyle and personality of the local community. Our teams have worked tirelessly to execute a vision we are confident will add a new, refreshing element to this flourishing market.”
