Starwood has expanded its portfolio of Aloft hotels in America with the opening of the Aloft South Beach.

Located in Miami Beach, Florida, the adaptive re-use Aloft hotel features 235 rooms in a scenic lakefront setting.

Developed by JMH Development and Madden Real Estate Ventures and managed by Sage Hospitality, Aloft South Beach has transformed the 1960s-era Motel Ankara and now includes a new eight-storey tower.

Were delighted to open this unique, stylish Aloft hotel in South Beach, said Jason Halpern, principal in JMH Development, who has a track record of restoring historic structures. Through this project, we were able to breathe new life into a historic South Beach building while simultaneously creating an aesthetically appealing new hotel in an unbeatable location.

Aloft South Beach offers waterfront views and access to Lake Pancoast and the Collins Canal, which wrap around the property.

Just one block from Miami Beach, the new Aloft hotel is just minutes from the world-renowned South Beach, the Miami Beach Convention Center, several art galleries, the Bass Museum of Art and numerous night clubs, restaurants and boutiques.

Hotel facilities include free wi-fi available throughout the hotel, an outdoor pool, roof deck lounge, 24-hour fitness center and 2,349 square feet of flexible meeting space.
