Between the commerce, entertainment, shopping opportunities and other cultural offerings, Brickell immediately felt like home to AKA, which recently unveiled Hotel AKA Brickell, a tranquil and sophisticated urban retreat. Formerly the Conrad Miami Hotel, the 36-story hotel has 201 rooms and suites with sweeping panoramic Biscayne Bay and city views. To ensure key elements of AKA’s brand are infused into Hotel AKA Brickell, the property is currently being reimagined by renowned architecture and design firm Gabellini Sheppard Associates. Additionally, AKA plans to introduce new F+B concepts, a robust wellness program and more, including updates to amenity spaces throughout the next 6 months. Current amenities include 24-hour concierge services; the newly opened Leaf Spa; an outdoor pool with cabanas and sky bar; a Technogym fitness center; and extensive event space, including a ballroom space and private conference rooms as well as a restaurant. AKA’s first-ever Miami hotel is a new home away from home for Magic City residents and visitors alike;
