Aloft Perth Rivervale to Open in Australia
Starwood announced it will open a new Aloft hotel in Perth, Australia, in late 2016. The Aloft Perth Rivervale will be located in the suburb of Rivervale east of the city’s central business district, and will be the first Aloft brand property to open in Australia.
The new hotel will have 224 loft-like rooms, as well as a restaurant, fitness center, pool, and rooftop venue for special events. The property will also have 5,920 square feet (550 square meters) of meeting space.
In addition, guests will be able to attend live music events through the Live at Aloft Hotels program at the brand’s signature W XYZ bar.
The Aloft Perth Rivervale will be the second Starwood property to open in Perth, behind the Four Points by Sheraton Perth, which opened in 2012. The company also plans to open a Westin brand hotel in Perth in 2017.
Aloft currently offers Smart Check In for select properties, a feature that allows guests to bypass the front desk by using their smartphones to check in and open their room doors.
