Yotel-branded hotel coming to downtown Miami

A Yotel hotel — known for packing essentials into small rooms dubbed “cabins” — will open in downtown Miami in 2017.

Aria Development Group, based in Miami and New York, announced plans for the hotel at 227 NE Second St. on Tuesday. In addition to 250 cabins, a restaurant, bar, pool deck and gym, the mixed-use project will also include apartments.

Yotel has three airport hotels (at London Heathrow, London Gatwick and Amsterdam Schiphol) and one 669-room hotel near Times Square in New York City. In addition to the Miami project, other future sites include Williamsburg in Brooklyn, San Francisco, Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport and Singapore.
