Triyar Hospitality has developed a five-story, 136-room aloft hotel in Tempe, Arizona.
aloft is a Select Service lodging concept recently launched by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. The concept, inspired by Starwood’s successful W brand, is designed to provide travelers a lodging product with a modern style, innovative design, functionality and comfort at an affordable room rate. aloft is intended to serve as a more economical alternative to full-service hotel brands such as W, competing most directly with such other brands as Courtyard by Marriott, Hilton Garden Inn and Hyatt Place.
Consistent with the brand prototype, the aloft Tempe provides a unique environment that maximizes on space utilization. The rooms and public areas incorporate an efficient design. For instance, in the evening, the front desk, coffee bar and café are transformed into an inviting lounge with televisions and pool tables. The hotel will not have a restaurant however, will offer a self-serve meal area in the lobby for casual dining. Other facilities include an outdoor pool area, exercise facility, gift shop kiosk and 524 square feet of meeting space.
