Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.® has announced that its Aloft brand will soon debut in Greenville, South Carolina. Aloft Greenville will open in early 2015 in a prime downtown location, featuring 144 spacious, loft-like rooms, leading-edge technology and a lively, social atmosphere. It will be the brand’s second hotel in South Carolina and the third Aloft hotel developed by McKibbon Hotel Group, joining Aloft Asheville Downtown and Aloft Tallahassee. Located next to Greenville’s ONE Building, Aloft Greenville will sit atop a new 470-space, $11.8 million dollar public garage. Part of the city’s downtown revitalization, the sleek, new development will also include retail shops and office space. Plans call for the development to be adjacent to a recently completed $4 million public plaza on Main Street.
The hotel will offer 2,800 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting space and rooftop amenities including a Splash outdoor pool as well as the brand’s signature W XYZ® bar. The hotel is close to numerous shops and restaurants, as well as the Peace Center for the Performing arts, the Bon Secours Wellness Arena and the offices of BMW, Michelin and Fluor.
