What do you think of the hotel?
I haven't been to any Aloft hotels, so I can't comment on that chain of Starwood Hotels. I have been to the W Hotels and they're amazing. Since these are rumored to be mini W hotels, I'm sure it will be a perfect addition to the City of Aventura. A great addition to the short list of hotels in 33180.
Is it a good fit for Aventura?
Aventura has traffic issues, so more development will likely create more traffic problems. That being said, I'm sure a specialty hotel will be a successful project in Aventura. This is because Aventura demands first rate services to cater to the luxury condo community in the surrounding area. The recent 125 million dollar Aventura Mall expansion of expensive designer shops is proof that Aventura is not slowing down its need for luxury services. I think that the Starwood Cabi venture is a perfect match for Aventura and will likely be a destination for tourists that want to stay in Aventura during their visits to South Florida.
