    Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.® has announced that its fast-growing Aloft brand has embarked on an adaptive re-use project in downtown Little Rock, Arkansas. Aloft Little Rock Downtown will open in early 2016 as part of a mixed-use development that will bring new life to the historic Boyle Building on Capitol and Main Streets. Owned by Chi Hotel Group, the new Aloft will feature 140 spacious, loft-like rooms, forward-thinking technology and innovative programming. It will be Starwood’s first hotel to open in Little Rock. First opened as the State National Bank Building in 1909, the 12-story Boyle Building will be transformed into a mixed-use development housing Aloft Little Rock Downtown, as well as ground-floor retail, a high-end restaurant and coffee shop. This project is part of the city’s revitalization of the Capitol-Main Historic District.

    Aloft Little Rock Downtown is one of several adaptive re-use projects, joining Aloft Orlando Downtown, Aloft Tulsa Downtown, Aloft Miami-Brickell, Aloft New Orleans Downtown and the award-winning Aloft Dallas Downtown in addition to two new projects in 2014.
