    Featuring 2,800 square feet of meeting space, an outdoor deck, 24-hour re-charge gym, outdoor pool and the brand’s signature W XYZ bar. The Aloft Santa Clara also features a re:fuel at Aloft – a one-stop gourmet grab & go food and beverage area.

    “Aloft Santa Clara is a highly anticipated new hotel in this bustling technology hub, and we expect it will quickly emerge as a top choice among visitors to Silicon Valley,” said Umesh Patel, Vice President, CalTex Hospitality, Inc. “The Aloft brand has experienced phenomenal growth, due to its distinctive sense of style, buzzing social scene and line-up of innovative programming.”

    Owned by CalTex Hospitality, Inc. and managed by Lodgic Hospitality, the Aloft Santa Clara features the recently launched SPG Keyless—an evolution of Aloft’s Smart Check-in— the hospitality industry’s first mobile, keyless entry system allowing guests to use their smart phone as a key. The technology is rolling out to all Aloft, Element and W Hotels Worldwide by year’s end.

    “Aloft Santa Clara is an exciting new addition to the brand’s growing Silicon Valley portfolio and will offer travellers a uniquely tech-forward hotel experience,” said Brian McGuinness, Senior Vice President, Specialty Select Brands for Starwood. “As Starwood’s hub of technological innovation, Aloft appeals to the early adopter with its forward-thinking approach to hospitality.”
