citizenM Miami Brickell: Affordable Luxury
citizenM has touched down in Miami! citizenM Miami Brickell presents travelers with an affordable luxury experience—offering guests eye-catching art, high-tech design and frictionless service in a central location. Located at 11 SE 10th Street, the 252-room, 20-story hotel is the first of three citizenM properties opening in Miami in the coming years.
The new hotel also features the brand’s first rooftop pool, offering sweeping views of Miami’s downtown for in-house guests. citizenM welcomes the community to work from one of their eight societyM meeting rooms which offer style, tech, and unlimited coffee to let ideas flow. The property also boasts two terraces open to the public: one overlooking the bustling S. Miami Avenue and the other facing a lush green garden space.
To mark the brand’s arrival, citizenM partnered with Miami born-and-raised artist Jen Stark to create five bright and vibrant large scale pieces of artwork that unite to create one composition for the Brickell property facade. This conversation-sparking facade art bridges citizenM’s playful personality with Brickell’s cosmopolitan atmosphere.
As with all of its hotels, citizenM continues to bring art to the community through both commissioned and existing works. Commissioned artists Theresa Chromati and Lakwena Maciver created inspiring pieces for the citizenM Miami Brickell location. Chromati’s “Variations of Her Movements - Exploding and Exploring” shows an optimistic and hopeful journey — where she explores the act of unraveling your life, building yourself back up and moving forward to live in your full power. In the hotel’s entrance, Maciver’s kaleidoscopic colors, bold patterns and powerful message with “Good Life” provokes a deeper conversation. She explores how society showers certain people with money and glory and what this reflects about our values and beliefs. Thousands of citizenM guests will come face-to-face with these artists’ thought-provoking art.
Additionally, to give the property an art collection that felt distinct to Miami, citizenM hosted an “Open Art Call” where over 70 artists submitted works inspired by their love of the city. The panel of judges consisted of Rattan Chadha, founder of citizenM and contemporary art collector; Jen Stark, artist and creator of the hotel’s facade artwork; Rob Wagemans, Creative Director at citizenM and founder of Concrete; Lakwena Maciver, artist and creator of the hotel’s interior artwork; and FriendsWithYou, the art collaboration of Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III. Together, the judges selected ten winners to permanently showcase their pieces across the guest rooms of the new citizenM Miami Brickell and citizenM Miami World Center (opening soon). The ten chosen artists, many of whom are self-taught, created dynamic, colorful pieces adding a creative flair to the rooms.
citizenM Miami Brickell’s entrance leads into a non-traditional lobby styled living room that feels like home, furnished with plenty of books, art and furniture from citizenM’s long-standing partner, Vitra. In the heart of the living room is a canteenM, serving food and drinks 24/7. The citizenM guest rooms are uniform in style and size - optimized for relaxation with a wall-to-wall window, an enormous XL king-size bed topped with the finest European linens, a jetlag-bursting power shower, and an HD TV with streaming capabilities. Superfast free Wi-Fi is unlimited and perfect for streaming one’s own films or music straight to the TV. A MoodPad tablet controls the ambience – from temperature to blinds to entertainment. All of these features can also be controlled by a guest’s smartphone, thanks to the brand’s award-winning app.
citizenM’s second hotel in Miami will open at the Worldcenter in early 2023. Surrounded by a diverse mix of retail, hospitality and entertainment spaces, citizenM Miami Worldcenter is centrally placed within the business and financial hub of Miami. The building will feature a series of sculptures placed across the facade and created by FriendsWithYou, the Los Angeles-based art collaboration between Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III - known for their work with the likes of Pharrell Williams and Diplo. Inside, four spacious, light-flooded societyM meeting rooms welcome big thinkers. The 351-room hotel will also feature a large rooftop pool and bar, serving cocktails with a view on the 11th floor.
citizenM was launched in 2008 with a purpose – to disrupt the traditional, stale hotel industry. Rattan Chadha – the founder of the global fashion brand Mexx – was inspired by his employees to create a hotel for today’s frequent travelers, giving them everything they need and nothing they don’t. citizenM currently has 29 hotels in 18 cities, including 11 in the US: two in New York, one in Boston, two in Seattle, two in Washington DC, one in Los Angeles, one in San Francisco, one in Miami, and one in Chicago.
