Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide plans to open an Aloft hotel in Coral Gables, its eighth location in the state, by 2016.

The hotel at 2524 LeJeune Road will also house a high-end restaurant and a couple retail outlets. Amenities are set to include a 600-square-foot meeting space for either business or social events, as well as a pool, bar and 24-hour gym.

Like the 160-room Aloft Miami-Brickell, which opened in August, the builder Sunview Companies and Venezuelan investor HES Group will serve as managers of Aloft Coral Gables. HES Group bought a 50 percent stake in the Brickell project in 2010, making it a joint venture with Sunview, as previously reported. [GlobeSt]Mark Maurer
