ABOUT EAST MIAMI
Trendy and tropical, EAST Miami brings a playful lifestyle hotel with an Asian twist to downtown Miami. Dotted with palm trees and modern art; the hotel offers guests a relaxed space to work playfully and play productively.
You’ll feel the buzz the moment you enter the lobby, from the energetic co-working space and pool deck to the airy sun-drenched guest rooms. Visit the hotel’s Uruguayan eatery Quinto La Huella for down-to-earth cooking or ride futuristic elevators up to the 40th floor, where you'll find a beloved rooftop bar Sugar and Tea Room, a hidden door speakeasy with Miami's only Night Brunch.
Miami might be famous for sunshine, beaches and glamorous parties; but the city has a lot more to offer. Intriguing neighborhoods, surprising street art and world-class museums. EAST Miami is located in Brickell City Centre, a cultural haven and shopping mecca for art and fashion lovers in the beating heart of downtown Miami.
EAST Miami is offering a special EMS2021 Conference booking code. This code allows you a significant discount on any available room you choose. When booking for EMS2021, be sure to use the booking code FIUEMS when booking.
ARRIVING BY AIR
If you are traveling by air to EMS2021, you can arrive at either Miami International Airport (MIA; 15 minutes from the conference hotel) or Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL; 45 minutes from the conference hotel).
Miami International Airport is the main gateway into the United States for people arriving from the Caribbean and South and Central America. MIA also has the most international connections to other parts of the world, whereas Fort Lauderdale Airport concentrates more on domestic flights and is home to low-cost carrier Spirit. For most EMS2021 attendees, MIA is the better choice.
ARRIVING BY CAR
If you are driving to EMS2021, the conference hotel is located just off Interstate 95. Take Exit 1B toward US-41/Brickell Avenue/SW 8th Street. Turn right onto SW 8th Street/Carlos Arboleya Blvd/Tamiami Trail. Continue to follow 8th Street. EAST Miami will be on your left in approximately one-half mile. Valet is accessed in front of the hotel when checking in.
