The international hotel brand’s first ever joint YOTEL and YOTELPAD property made its official debut with an energy-packed evening on Thursday, October 27.
MIAMI – On Thursday, October 27, International hotel brand YOTEL celebrated all things 305 with the official grand opening party for the new YOTEL and YOTELPAD Miami, located in the heart of downtown. Event guests were among the first to experience the new hotel’s tech-forward features, state-of-the-art amenities, sweeping city views and delicious food & drink offerings. An evening full of firsts, guests also experienced YOTEL’s new Non-Stop brand campaign being rolled out globally on November 1, designed to capture the energy and excitement of YOTEL locations worldwide.
Guests were greeted with tropical flavored, boozy paletas (popsicles) served by local artisan Cielito from YOTEL’s whimsical popsicle-shaped Mission Control (front desk) and cocktails from Mazeh, the hotel’s Middle Eastern restaurant and bar as they entered the first ever combined YOTEL and YOTELPAD concept, located at 227 NE 2nd St.
Party goers had the chance to enjoy the ultimate selfie moment with the hotel’s branded purple Moke electronic vehicle. Guests were then escorted to the hotel’s 11th floor where they explored YOTEL’s cleverly-designed rooms with three distinct immersive activations that included an aura reading room, a Non-Stop content creation studio and a Miami Cocktail Company room takeover styled with abundant fresh produce and florals to complement the canned cocktail flavors.
The party continued on the hotel’s pool deck and restaurant Float, which turned into the ultimate Miami-inspired party located 12 floors high with views of downtown and Biscayne Bay. Guests stopped by YOTEL Miami’s state of the art gym to pick up complimentary swag which included themed bucket hats, sunglasses, tote bags and other tropical attire before dancing the night away. As the party came to a close guests enjoyed locally-made chocolate cigars, another nod to Miami’s influence and local flavors.
The ultimate hotel destination for those looking to explore Miami, YOTEL is conveniently located within walking distance to many of the city’s most popular sites and experiences. It is also just a few minutes’ drive from Bayfront Park, FTX Arena, Port of Miami, Miami Beach, and Miami International Airport.
