STAMFORD, CT—Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.® has unveiled that its Aloft brand will soon debut in Greenville, SC.
Aloft Greenville will open in early 2015 in a prime downtown location and features 144 guestrooms. It will be the brand’s second hotel in South Carolina and the third Aloft hotel developed by McKibbon Hotel Group, joining Aloft Asheville Downtown and Aloft Tallahassee.
“We expect Aloft Greenville will emerge as a hotspot for savvy travelers and local professionals looking for a design-led experience and active social scene,” stated Brian McGuinness, Senior Vice President, Specialty Select Brands for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.
Located next to Greenville’s ONE Building, Aloft Greenville will sit atop a new 470-space, $11.8 million dollar public garage. Part of the city’s downtown revitalization, the new development will also include retail shops and office space. Plans call for the development to be adjacent to a recently completed $4 million public plaza on Main Street.
The hotel will offer 2,800 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting space and rooftop amenities, including a Splash outdoor pool as well as the brand’s signature W XYZ® bar.
