    Aloft Miami - Brickell -- 160 rooms and suites. Transformation of a condo project to start soon.
    Source: Venezuelans turn lingering 14-story Brickell tower into Starwood hotel

    " The site at Southwest Second Avenue and 10th Street, near the Mary Brickell Village shopping complex, was planned as a multi-family project with 88 units, but changes in market conditions pushed the developer to pursue a new direction."
    "Room rates at Brickell's Aloft Hotel are to start at $120 to $140 per night."
    "The project is expected to take about eight months to build and should open in the first quarter of next year."

    What a strange location for an Aloft. We once had a Sheraton over here. Seems more like Westin or Sheraton should be over there. I would think an Aloft would go somewhere on/near the Beach.

    Well, it's 6 blocks from water. There's another one slated for Doral that will be miles from the ocean.

    Aloft Miami Doral -- Opening Jan 2013.
    3265 NW 107th Avenue. Doral, Florida

    It could be that the property is too small for the 'mainstream' brands. Strictly guessing: There might have been financial incentives offered (by the developer and mabe even job creation offsets, etc) that made the opening fiscally attractive.

    Other than budget-conscious business travelers and pre-cruise travelers, people attending live events downtown (AA Arena, or live music at Tobacco Road, etc) might generate some room nights :) (they can always use Priceline, which is especially popular with the pre-cruiser group).

    Having worked for a decade about a mile from this location, I'd say this area of commercial developments (low-rise bank buildings and and large warehouses) is even more curious from Aloft's "target demographic" stabdpoint.

    However, I think it shows that Aloft has a "dual identity" - it can be both a "baby W" and simultaneously a "value-rpiced business hotel" in the Hyatt Place mode. That commercial area is under-served by national chains: a TownePlace by Marriott is a few blocks away and a Hampton Inn/Suites is a couple of miles further west, adjacent to the Turnpike entrance/exit; also, the Doral golf resort, Hyatt Blue and IC ere maybe 3-4 miles away to the east, but at higher price points.

    For many locations, I think that it has to be both. I question whether they've combined these two needs as well as they should, though.

    I think so and it seems to be already open and operating as a Starwood. I don't know when this happened, but I assume it's very recent.

    I was going to guess within the last month, but now I realize that I checked spg.com for Minnesota and didn't see it on the list just before Easter weekend.
