The property will have 202 loft-like guestrooms with platform beds, large walk-in showers and complimentary Bliss amenities. In addition, the brand’s signature W XYZ bar and Re:mix lounge will be located atop the hotel for access to city views. Amenities will include keyless room entry, a fitness center, 24-hour deli, meeting spaces, as well as free WiFi throughout the property. Two independently operated retail spaces will be located on the ground level with direct access from the street. There will also be on-site parking facilities.
Aloft Dublin City will complement Marriott International’s existing Irish portfolio, comprising four hotels operating under the Autograph Collection, Renaissance Hotels, Sheraton and Westin brands, respectively.
