Marriott International’s Aloft Hotels brand recently celebrated the opening of Aloft Me’aisam, its second property in Dubai and fourth in the UAE.
The new hotel, owned and developed Dubai Properties, stands in Dubai Production City, within arm’s reach of Dubai Sports City and City Centre Me’aisam.
President and managing director – Middle East and Africa, Marriott International, Alex Kyriakidis enthused: “The UAE remains one of our strongest growth markets and we are confident the continued growth of Aloft in the market is a strong response to the evolving expectations of travellers today.
“This is an exciting year for Aloft in Dubai. Following the launch of the brand on the Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Production City, we are also scheduled to be opening an Aloft in Dubai South and City Centre Deira later this year,” he added.
Aloft Me’aisam is home to 223 loft-inspired guestrooms, comprising ultra-comfortable plush beds, walk-in showers, custom amenities by Bliss Spa and 49-inch LED TVs with Chromecast. All rooms at the property are equipped with the mobile check-in system, SPG Keyless, allowing guests to use their mobile phones as room keys.
F&B options include the brand’s signature W XYZ Bar; Re:mix Lounge, which extends into an outdoor space, the Backyard; Re:fuel by Aloft – a gourmet grab-and-go food and beverage area; and City Limits, an all-day cafe kitchen.
Guests to the hotel can also make the most of Re:charge, a fully-equipped fitness centre; an outdoor Splash pool; and a Tactic meeting space.
General manager, Aloft Me’aisam, Stuart Birkwood declared: “We are excited to open our doors to a very distinct hospitality experience. Aloft is designed for the hyper-connected, tech-savvy global traveller and we’re excited to share our fresh, innovative programming to travellers, as well as local residents.”
