Aloft Durham Downtown to Open in North Carolina
Starwood announced it will open the Aloft Durham Downtown in Durham, North Carolina, in May 2015. Construction on the hotel is expected to begin later this year.
The hotel will have 134 guestrooms and suites, and will be located in downtown Durham, between the Durham Performing Arts Center and the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
The property will have an outdoor pool, a 24-hour fitness center, private parking, and the brand’s signature W XYZ bar. The hotel will also have approximately 2,230 square feet (207 square meters) of meeting and event space.
The new hotel is part of a redevelopment and restoration project launched in 2004 by the American Tobacco Historic District to transform the American Tobacco Company’s campus into a mixed-use development complex. The complex will include local and national corporations, restaurants, and event venues.
