Say “aloha” to the newest hotel in Baltimore – Aloft Baltimore-Washington International Airport. Come out and see the arrival of W Hotels into the Baltimore lodging market. The Dedication will take place on Thursday, July 30th at 12pm.
From the creators of the innovative luxury hotel brand, W Hotels presents a new concept in affordable, style-driven lodging for business and leisure travelers. The Aloft BWI is 155 rooms of enhanced technology, urban-influenced design, and a social atmosphere geared toward the growing Generation X/Y travel segment.
Dedication festivities will include the burying of a time capsule filled with today’s memorabilia such as iPhone 3G S, Michael Jackson MP3 files, and articles on significant current events. The time capsule will be re-opened on the tenth anniversary of the hotel. The event will also consist of property tours of the hotel’s public areas and guestrooms, and the area’s most popular DJ Gemma stirring enthusiasm over the newest hotspot in Linthicum, the W xyz bar.
