Aloft Hotels opened its first Caribbean property, the 177-room Aloft San Juan in Puerto Rico. Prisa Group and Caribe Hospitality developed the hotel and Marriott International will operate it.
The hotel features several Aloft brand standards, such as the W XYZ Bar, the Live At Aloft Hotel performance program, the Re:fuel by Aloft grab-and-go market and the Re:charge fitness center. The hotel also offers an outdoor pool and 3,524 square feet of meeting space. The Aloft San Juan is located near the Puerto Rico Convention Center and within the El Distrito mixed-use development.
“Aloft San Juan is one of the anchor properties of El Distrito and the first to open, thus highlighting the importance that El Distrito has for the Puerto Rican tourism industry,” Federico Stubbe Jr., president of Prisa Group and developer of the hotel and El Distrito, said in a statement. “Its modern and avant-garde design, and its vibrant social environment, add variety to the local hotel offer, as it is designed to meet the new generation of travelers.”
Aloft Hotels has more than 160 hotels open in more than 25 countries and territories, as well as 135 properties in its pipeline.
