IHG opens first-ever Atwell Suites

IHG Hotels & Resorts (IHG) and Sunview Companies have opened the world’s first Atwell Suites property with the 90-room Atwell Suites Miami Brickell. It is part of a dual-branded property in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood and situated on the top floors of the building shared with the Hotel Indigo Miami Brickell, which opened in March 2021.

Atwell Suites is IHG’s newest brand in the all-suites upper-midscale category, created to fill a growing need in the hospitality space for design and space that supports longer stays and easily transitions between business and leisure, according to the company.

Suites at the property include a counter-height desk and chair and an in-room wet bar, while the lobby includes huddle areas and public coworking spaces. The hotel also has a signature scent featuring bamboo and green moss.

Complimentary breakfast is available to all guests, and the property also has a bar (pictured above) and a 24/7 complimentary beverage station in the lobby with grind-and-brew espresso and lattes, along with still or sparkling water.

“IHG Hotels & Resorts is excited to open the world’s first Atwell Suites,” said Karen Gilbride, VP, global avid hotels and Atwell Suites. “This offering was created to be a stylish, design-forward brand that has been absent in the rapidly growing all-suites segment. Designed alongside our Owner Advisory Board and with deep-rooted consumer insights on what guests need in this space, we are confident we created something that will impress guests, investors and future owners. We look forward to seeing the success of Atwell Suites Miami Brickell and opening more properties across the U.S.”

Pedro Villar, lead developer, Sunview Companies said, “The Atwell Suites all-suite design concept is the perfect complement to the Hotel Indigo Miami Brickell. Atwell Suites’ guests will be able to enjoy all that both brands have to offer under one roof, along with spacious suites and spectacular views of the city, a high-rise bar and more. This offering is one that Miami has yet to see, and we are excited to be the first. We believe in the strength of the Atwell Suites proposition and can’t wait to welcome guests into our new hotel.”

The Atwell Suites portfolio will consist of both new-builds and conversion properties in a variety of primary, secondary and tertiary markets. There are currently 22 hotels in the pipeline across the U.S., with an additional two anticipated to open this year. One will be a prototypical new-construction hotel in Denver and the other will be a conversion in Austin.
