STAMFORD, CT—Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. will soon add a second hotel in Silicon Valley: Aloft Sunnyvale.
Set to open in December 2014, the 85-key hotel—formerly the Pacific Inn—will join Aloft Cupertino as the second Aloft hotel owned and developed by an affiliate of Shashi Corporation.
Aloft Sunnyvale will be located across from Sunnyvale Town Center, a 36-acre mixed-use development with shops, restaurants and entertainment. The hotel will offer proximity to the offices of numerous businesses, including Juniper Networks, LinkedIn, AMD, Yahoo!, Lockheed Martin, Honeywell and Northrop Grumman. Also nearby are Town & Country Village Shopping Center, Onizuka Air Force Station and Carnegie Mellon University’s Silicon Valley campus.
Hotel facilities will include 500 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, a 24-hour fitness center, the brand’s signature W XYZ bar, and re:fuel at Aloft – a one-stop grab & go food and beverage area.
