About aloft Hotels By Marriott Brand Hotels

The response gathered from guests during that simulation became the foundation for the construction of future Aloft Hotels.

Currently, there are more than 150 open properties across 25 countries under the Aloft Hotel brand. Their urban-inspired design was drafted for the modern jet setters who are more inclined to veer towards a vibrant social scene while maintaining affordable rates.
