Radisson RED arrives in Miami

As Florida travel and tourism rebound, the Radisson RED brand has debuted in the state with the opening of Radisson RED Miami Airport in Miami.

A new, multimillion-dollar property developed, owned and operated by Riviera Point Development Group, it is located near Miami International Airport (MIA) and less than five miles from downtown Miami. The property has 157 pet-friendly guestrooms and the Wynwood-inspired works of 14 local artists—a collection that brings Miami’s design aesthetic to life with bold colors in elevator lobby murals, guestroom wall art and limited-edition prints. Miami muralist Daniel Fila curated the collection for the ownership group.

The hotel’s on-site amenities include an outdoor pool, a fitness center and a 2,000-sq.-ft. event space that can seat up to 100 guests. Complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport, free parking and room service are also available.

One of Radisson RED Miami Airport also has an on-site restaurant, OUIBar + KTCHN, an indoor-outdoor spot adjacent to the lobby serving cuisine with a Latin flair distinct to the city. A rooftop bar where cocktails are accompanied by an urban soundtrack and views of the Miami skyline is also on-site.

“We are incredibly proud to be opening the fourth Radisson RED in the Americas with this unique hotel that truly captures the essence of Miami’s culture,” said Aly El-Bassuni, COO, Radisson Hotel Group Americas. “Thanks to the commitment and hard work of this hotel’s outstanding owners, the hotel was constructed with great amenities and authentic Radisson RED design that creates an upscale modern lifestyle experience. We look forward to continue growing this fantastic brand in dynamic cities throughout the Americas.”

Riviera Point Development Group, a South Florida developer of hotels and office complexes through federal EB-5 Immigrant Investor financing, created the hotel that showcases the Radisson RED brand with authentic Miami flavor. “Every aspect of Radisson RED is fresh and innovative in the upscale select-service segment,” said Rodrigo Azpúrua, CEO, Riviera Point Development Group. “It’s a great fit for the Miami market with its role as a global leisure destination and as the business gateway to Latin America. We’re excited to open our doors and confident in the outlook for the years ahead.”

Azpúrua said the $42-million Radisson RED Miami Airport, his firm’s fourth hotel, was funded through EB-5 financing, private equity and Centennial Bank financing.
