Starwood has announced that it will debut its leading-edge Aloft brand in Sydney.
Sydney’s first Aloft hotel will be located at 302 Pitt Street, after the city’s notable Druids House building is transformed into a-state-of-the-art hotel by renowned local designer, Carmen Glenister of Opera Studio Design and Sydney based Architects, Scott Carver.
Starwood Hotels and Resorts Pacific Regional Vice President Sean Hunt said, “Designed for the next generation of travellers, Aloft Sydney Pitt Street is an exciting addition to Starwood’s fast-growing portfolio, both in the Pacific region and globally.
“The hotel’s ideal location will make it very attractive to travellers already drawn to the brand’s distinctive energetic social atmosphere, innovative initiatives, and modern style that is different by design,” said Hunt.
Set to open in November 2016, the 136-room Aloft Sydney Pitt Street will be located in the heart of Sydney’s burgeoning ‘Koreatown’ district, close to the city’s business centre and transportation network.
Retaining various elements of the historic 1909 building, the new Aloft hotel will feature spacious loft-like guest rooms with many amenities signature of Aloft including ultra-comfortable signature platform beds with plush bedding, walk-in showers with custom amenities by Bliss Spa, complimentary bottled water, and signature coffee.
As with all Aloft hotels, there will be fast-and-free wireless Internet access throughout the hotel and plug-and-play connectivity to connect electronic devices to the 42-inch’ flat-screen TV, turning the room into a high-tech office as well as an entertainment centre.
Amenities that guests can look forward to include Re:fuel, the Aloft brand’s signature 24-hour gourmet grab and go food and beverage area.
After hours, in-house guests and locals alike can enjoy refreshing cocktail and catch the latest up-and-coming music acts as part of the brand’s signature ‘Live At Aloft Hotels’ music series in the signature w xyz bar which extends into an outdoor ‘backyard’.
The signing of Aloft Sydney Pitt Street follows last year’s announcement of Aloft Perth Rivervale, slated to open in early 2017.
