JN+A, HVS Design complete Aloft Tucson conversion

Hospitality architecture, interior design and project management firms Jonathan Nehmer + Associates (JN+A) and HVS Design completed the conversion of an existing hotel into an Aloft hotel in Tucson, Arizona. 

Formerly a Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, the Aloft Tucson has seven floors with 154 guestrooms and approximately 1,700 square feet of meeting space. JN+A and HVS Design created the Aloft by reorganizing the public areas to house the brand’s w xyzSM bar, re:fuel by AloftSM and re:mixSM lounge. The team also placed Aloft brand elements such as the Aloft canopy and a new “backyard” courtyard/pool space on the top of the existing basement parking garage.

All the guestrooms in the hotel were reconfigured to meet Aloft standards. JN+A and HVS Design worked with Starwood’s design and development team to develop a design to incorporates the offerings and feel of the Aloft brand. The Aloft Tucson is owned by Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

JN+A and HVS Design are architecture, interior design, and construction project management firms based in Rockville, Maryland. They specialize in design for the hospitality industry, and the collective portfolio includes projects throughout the US and international locations, including Asia, Europe, the Caribbean, Australia, South America, Mexico and Canada.
