The sizzling Aloft Miami Doral, the first of the Aloft brand from Starwood Hotels in metropolitan Miami, did justice to its hip and sassy personality with a Grand Opening Party that made heads turn. Think mermaid in the swimming pool, fire dancer, a bejeweled dancer clad in all red inside a 15-foot-high globe, feathered greeters and even flash mob in neon suits and masks to compliment the hot Latin band. Forget red, a vibrant blue carpet guided guests into the Aloft lobby, which was perfumed with its signature Orange fragrance, adding to the sensory delights.

After a personal greeting from General Manager, Claudio Bono, and a picture in front of the Aloft Miami Doral press backdrop, guests were given a passport upon entry. Showcasing the hotel, the passport booklet encouraged guests to visit and collect a stamp at each of the hotel facilities, including five meeting rooms, standard King/Queen rooms and connecting room, a hotel suite, plus several other areas of the lobby floor. After guests collected all stamps, they were entered to win prizes ranging from hotel stays to iPads.

More than 1,500 guests went room to room finding a wonderful cocktail in each --- from mojitos and whisky sours to glasses of celebratory champagne. Passed around the lively venue, small bites representative of the Americas fueled the dancing and spirited conversation until close at Midnight.

Claudio Bono welcomed attendees and introduced principal investors Orlando Padron and Henry Contreras who, with a champagne bottle filled with confetti, proclaimed Aloft Miami Doral open and the next go-to-place for the hottest events in the booming Miami Doral area.
