ROCKVILLE, MD—Jonathan Nehmer + Associates (JN+A) and HVS Design have completed architecture and interior design services for the Aloft Tucson.
Formerly a Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, the Aloft Tucson features 154 guestrooms and approximately 1,700 sq. ft. of meeting space.
JN+A and HVS Design created the Aloft by reorganizing the public areas to house the brand’s signature w xyz bar, re:fuel by Aloft and re:mix lounge. In keeping with brand-defining elements, the team created the Aloft canopy and a new “backyard” courtyard/pool space on the top of the existing basement parking garage.
All of the guestrooms in the hotel were reconfigured to meet Aloft standards. According to the design firm, the challenge was to interpret the unique characteristics of the Aloft room into a more typical hotel guestroom bay. JN+A and HVS Design worked closely with Starwood’s design and development team to develop a design to incorporates the features and feel of the Aloft.
The Aloft Tucson is owned by Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

The theme of this year’s ALIS conference was “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” But, lets face it, there are always going to be some people who aren’t happy unless they are worried about something—whether it’s the Fed potentially raising interest rates or that the price of oil is now too low, threatening to cripple the economies of some foreign nations.
