HFF represented HEI in the sale, which closed on Dec. 22. HEI will continue to manage the hotel, a few blocks from the Galleria Mall.

The five-story Aloft was completed in 2009. As Commercial Property Executive reports, the HFF investment sales team was led by senior managing director Dan Peek; managing directors John Bourret and Colby Mueck; and real estate analyst Austin Brooks.
