A Guide To Black-Owned Hotels In Miami, Florida
Black Americans love to travel, especially to Black-owned hotels. And based on new research, we spend more than $100 billion a year on travel alone.
MMGY Global’s research shows, Black leisure travelers, who represent a little over 13 percent of the U.S. leisure travel, generated over 450 million leisure stays in 2019.
According to Davonne Reaves, Hospitality Strategist at The Vonne Group, less than two percent of hotels across the country are currently owned by Black people. And if the COVID-19 pandemic taught us anything, it’s that Black businesses need and deserve our travel dollars.
If you’re traveling to Miami, here’s our guide to Black-owned hotels to choose from, according to data from the Blackout Coalition:
Dunns Josephine Hotel
In 2014, Kristin Kitchen launched the Sojourn Heritage Hotel Brand, a new brand of hotels focused on African American History and Culture in urban areas, to share the history while uplifting the community, hence the Dunns Josephine Hotel in Miami.
Launched in 2019, the Dunns Josephine Hotel is an ode to both the Miami and Harlem Renaissance periods of glitz and old-world glamour from days gone by.
Each of its 15 guestrooms are named after or dedicated to prominent Black legends such as Josephine Baker, Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Cab Calloway, Marcus Garvey, and the iconic Duke Ellington and Billie Holliday.
