Media & Public are invited to view downtown Raleigh’s newest contemporary hotel

Edie Deck, Marketing Director for Aloft Raleigh Hotel, has announced that Hillsborough Street’s highly anticipated Aloft Hotel has officially opened this week to the public. Boasting several stories of modern architecture and unparalleled views of NCSU’s historic bell tower, this unique hotel is expected to attract hundreds of new guests to its fresh, lively, and vibrant rooms and gathering spaces. Along with its unprecedented contemporary style, the hotel will be known for luxury-grade comfort at affordable rates as well as serve as a hub for local meet-ups, corporate events, and community gatherings. Furnished with eclectic art and business centric technologies, Aloft Raleigh is the first of its kind to emerge on the social scene in Downtown Raleigh.

Featured within the hotel is Aloft Raleigh’s new W XYZ bar, which opened October 26th and will feature live music as well as serve local North Carolina craft beer and cocktails among indoor fireplaces, spacious seating, and a stunning balcony. Also in the hotel is Gonza Tacos Y Tequila, an award-winning Triangle restaurant offering a variety of unique Latin American dishes. Neighbors to Gonza is the highly patronized Jubala, a craft coffee shop serving up Durham’s Counter Culture coffee along with made-from-scratch treats such as sweet potato biscuits, gourmet deli sandwiches, and liege waffles.

By design, the tech-savvy and open layout will offer visitors a unique experience. Special offerings, such as welcoming pets, offering guests ‘goody’ bags, and providing complimentary iPad use in the lobby, are among these offerings. Backed up to the redevelopment of Hillsborough Street’s social scene, guests will not only be within minutes of attractions and entertainment options but will also have access to Aloft’s state of the art gym and open-air swimming pool. Aloft Raleigh is also expected to attract Triangle-area businesses with its central location, 1,000 square feet of meeting space equipped with fast and free
wireless Internet, an easily reconfigured floor plan and plasma screen surfaces. This creative hotel experience is expected to put Aloft Raleigh on the map for being a community leader in providing space for the Triangle’s top thinkers, entrepreneurs, and executives in years to come.

“While there will be several grand opening events to introduce the new Aloft hotel to different communities around Raleigh, we welcome everyone to stop by and experience Aloft’s one-of-a-kind atmosphere for themselves” stated Edie Deck. “Stay and play is the Aloft brand. We welcome guests to simply stop by, meet our staff, visit our breathtaking views, and see what Aloft Raleigh has to offer”, continued Deck.
