NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MCR, the seventh-largest hotel owner-operator in the United States, is now managing the 259-room Miami International Airport Hotel. Located pre-security at the departures level of Concourse E, it is the only hotel at Miami International Airport, which serves more than 44 million passengers annually.
In partnership with the Miami-Dade Aviation Department, MCR will deliver a first-class experience for guests on layovers and early birds eager to be one security check away from their gates. The company also aims to welcome travelers from around the world to MIA — the nation’s third-busiest airport for international passengers, offering more flights to Latin America and the Caribbean than any other United States airport.
“The Miami International Airport Hotel is the best located hotel at MIA, in the center of America’s premier gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean,” said Tyler Morse, CEO and Managing Partner of MCR. “We are excited to work with the Miami-Dade Aviation Department to deliver excellent guest service and promote this key amenity for travelers and the airport community.”
“We are proud to now have MCR managing the MIA Hotel, and to continue providing convenient, easily accessible on-site hotel service to our travelers,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Lester Sola. “Expedia ranked the MIA Hotel the most in-demand hotel in Miami last year, and we look forward to building on that success with MCR.”
MCR landed the management contract through a competitive RFQ process with the Miami-Dade Aviation Department. The company will continue to fly high in the airport hotel sector, developing the 512-room TWA Hotel at John F. Kennedy International Airport scheduled to open in spring 2019.
MCR has hired all current hotel employees and is committed to building strong relationships with local and airport-focused businesses including the Miami International Airport’s 64 passenger and 41 cargo airlines, aviation-related tenants and local, state and federal government partners.
At the Miami International Airport Hotel, MCR invites guests to:
- Lay over in peace, thanks to soundproof windows and runway views
- Dine at the Brazilian-influenced Viena restaurant or the casual Air Margaritaville eatery
- Enjoy free fast Wi-Fi
- Host a celebration or meeting in nearly 3,000 square feet of event space with full catering services
