New Aloft Hotel to Open in South Beach
Starwood announced it will open a new Aloft property in the South Beach neighborhood of Miami Beach in early 2015. The Aloft South Beach will be housed in the former Motel Ankara, a mid-century motel that is being renovated and expanded to include a new eight-story tower.
The hotel will have 235 rooms, as well as an outdoor pool, roof deck lounge, and a 24-hour fitness center. The property will also have 2,349 square feet (218 square meters) of meeting and event space.
The hotel will be situated one block from the beach, and will be within walking distance of the Miami Beach Convention Center and the Bass Museum of Art, as well as several various art galleries, nightclubs, and restaurants.
The Aloft South Beach will be the third Aloft property to open in the Miami area. By 2016, Starwood plans to have nine Aloft hotels open throughout the state of Florida.
