Virgin Hotels plans property not far from PortMiami

Virgin Hotels plans to open a property In downtown Miami less than a mile from Virgin Voyages’ future Terminal V at the port.

Virgin Trains’ Virgin MiamiCentral hub is also located near PortMiami, and the Miami-Dade County Commission is deliberating the feasibility of a station directly at the port.

'#VirginFamily has you covered'

‘So next time you plan a holiday to the 305, remember the #VirginFamily has you covered,’ @VirginVoyages tweeted.

Groundbreaking for the 40-story hotel is set for 2020, with opening planned in 2023. The property will have 250 rooms, 150 residential units, a spa, rooftop pool, Commons Club and meetings/event space.

The hotel will be located in the Brickell district at 1040 S. Miami Avenue.

Terminal approved, train station pending

Last week commmissioners approved plans for Virgin Voyages' terminal, to go at the northwest end of the port, close to downtown Miami.

The potential location for a train station on port property has not been disclosed.

Virgin Trains currently has a marketing agreement with MSC Cruises, and passengers sailing on any cruise line from South Florida ports can take advantage of ‘Train to Port’ packages.
