Aloft Hotels to debut in South Korea

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide announced its plans to debut the Aloft brand in South Korea in late 2014, signing an agreement with development partner Youngshin HRD.

The hotel, Aloft Suwon, will be the first Aloft hotel in South Korea.

Slated to open in October 2014, Aloft Suwon is part of a mixed use development that also consists of retail and residential spaces. The hotel occupies the 4th to 11th floors, featuring 120 guestrooms, including 114 standard rooms and six suites.

The property also boasts a 4,348 square-foot meeting and function space, and two food and beverage facilities, including the signature lounge and bar, and an all-day dining restaurant. Other amenities include a 2,960 square-foot recreational facility with a gym, and it is situated adjacent to a 9,192 square-foot spa.

Aloft Suwon is located in Yeongtong-dong in the heart of Suwon, the provincial capital of Gyeonggi-do, South Korea. Suwon is a major industrial center, housing Samsung Electronics' digital city and a factory complex; it is also home to 14 university campuses. Located approximately 30 miles from Incheon International Airport and 18 miles from Seoul, the hotel is well connected by various modes of transportation. It offers access to numerous sights, including the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hwaseong Fortress, the Suwon business district and local government offices.
