Starwood to open the Aloft Al Ain in Abu Dhabi

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide signed an agreement to open a new 172-room Aloft hotel in Al Ain, the second largest city in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, UAE. Scheduled to debut in 2016, Aloft Al Ain will be the first Starwood property to open in Al Ain and the second Aloft hotel in the UAE joining Aloft Abu Dhabi, which opened in 2009. 

Aloft Al Ain will be a part of the city’s 1,600,000-square-foot mixed-use development surrounding the 25,000-seat Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium. The development will include office space, residential units, family entertainment, retail shops and dining.

Aloft Al Ain will have 172 loft-like rooms, including two presidential suites, all with the brand’s signature high ceilings, oversized windows, a platform bed and large walk-in showers with complimentary Bliss Spa products. The newly constructed Aloft will also offer the brand’s signature W XYZ bar, the RE:Charge fitness center and RE:Fuel by Aloft, a grab-n-go kiosk open 24 hours a day. For meetings and presentations, the new Aloft will offer two creative spaces equipped with the latest audiovisual technology.
