SECAUCUS, NJ—Aloft will soon expand its reach here with the mid-2016 opening of Aloft Secaucus. The hotel, owned by Sun Development and Management, will be located near the Plaza at Harmon Meadow and feature 172 loft-like rooms.
“Aloft Secaucus will draw both visitors and local professionals who will appreciate the hotel’s modern, urban design and vibrant social scene as well as its proximity to New York City,” stated Brian McGuinness, SVP, Specialty Select Brands for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. “Aloft is always on the forefront of new markets, fueled by the enthusiasm of savvy travelers across the globe.”
Just six miles from midtown Manhattan, Aloft Secaucus will be walking distance to all the shops, restaurants and businesses in the Plaza at Harmon Meadow mixed-use, complex, including the Meadowlands Exposition Center and the Mall at Mill Creek.
The eight-story hotel will be close to local restaurants and attractions including the Meadowlands Entertainment Complex, which houses MetLife Stadium, home of the New York Jets and New York Giants, the IZOD Center and the site of the American Dream Meadowlands Mall and Complex, which opens in late 2015. A 20-minute drive from Newark International Airport (EWR), the new Aloft hotel will feature 3,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, an indoor Splash pool and fitness center.
