The 156-room property is owned by Kendall Hotel Resort Limited Partnership, a Delaware limited partnership.
Located on 22 acres in a resort-style setting in the fast-growing Kendall area of South Miami, the full-service hotel is removed from the urban atmosphere but is just a 20-minute drive to Miami and its many cultural and entertainment attractions. The property is conveniently located next door to a world-renowned medical facility and is only minutes away from international shopping venues, several major colleges and universities and all the Miami-area professional sports venues.
“This is our first contract with the Kendall ownership group, and we look forward to building a long-term relationship,” said John Emery, president and chief operating officer of Interstate. “Based on our knowledge of the Florida market and our experience managing Radisson properties, we are confident that we can help this unique property quickly achieve a leadership position in its market.”
“We successfully completed our soft opening in April, assisted by a very able Interstate team, and are gearing up for our grand opening on May 20,” said Gary Moore, principal of Kendall Hotel Resort Limited Partnership. “We are extremely pleased with the reception we have received from our guests during our ramp-up period. We fully expect that Interstate`s experience, size and proven operating systems will translate into significant benefits for us.”
The Radisson Kendall hotel features 156 designer-appointed guest rooms, including 48 one- and two-bedroom suites with fully outfitted kitchens. Standard rooms are more than 600 square feet in size and provide an array of amenities typical of a first-class hotel, including a complimentary in-room safe and fully stocked minibar.
Hotel amenities include an outdoor pool, two lighted tennis courts, fitness facilities and a Jacuzzi.
