Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc and Promotora TIIM today announced that Starwood's Aloft brand made its debut in Cancun, Mexico. Aloft Cancun is ideally located in the Hotel Zone, adjacent to Cancun Center, the city's convention and exhibition center, and walking distance from dining, shopping and nightlife.
Aloft provides travelers with high style, forward-thinking technology and a vibrant social atmosphere. Pioneering initiatives in music, design, and technology have positioned Aloft as a must-have brand for the next generation of travelers. Aloft Cancun offers a total sensory experience, combining style with 177 loft-like rooms featuring nine-foot ceilings and oversized windows to create a bright, airy environment.
"This opening is also an important step for Starwood as it marks our 25th hotel in Mexico and the entrance of our eighth brand in the country. Furthermore, it allows us to continue to build on the momentum of the Aloft brand in Latin America," said Osvaldo Librizzi, Co-President the Americas.
The Aloft brand made its debut in Latin America in 2011 with the opening of the Aloft Bogota Airport, followed by Aloft San Jose in Costa Rica three months later. Currently, there are eight Aloft branded hotels in operation or in development in the region, including the Aloft Panama, which will open in June. Aloft Merida and Aloft Guadalajara are slated to open in 2014, and Aloft Asuncion and Aloft Montevideo will open their doors in 2015.
Aloft Cancun is located along the main avenue of Cancun, Boulevard Kukulcan, only 25 minutes away from the International Airport, 15 minutes from downtown and walking distance to several key entertainment places, including the city's famous white-sand beaches. With more than 70 hotels in 10 countries, Aloft has changed the hotel landscape everywhere from Baltimore to Beijing to Bogota to Brussels - and everywhere in between.
