Aloft groups of hotels is part of the SPG designed for global travelers who are always on the move and are tech-savvy who love open spaces, open thinking and open expression. The style and connectivity defines the social scene and is the persona of Aloft Hotels across the globe.
This is the 2nd property of Aloft in Bangalore and situated in the midst of the India’s Silicon Valley, situated in Cessna Business Park, Sarjapur – Marathahalli Outer Ring Road, surrounded by concrete buildings and IT companies.
I was invited to experience this hotel, owned and operated by the SPG group and Starwood. Like all other such high-ticketing hotels, a lot of attention to detail had gone into building the hotel as per the standards.
As you enter the hotel, the name ALOFT at the entrance gleams. This is a pretty sight during nighttime and the first thing that captures your eyes is the huge Cessna hanging right above you. As I reached out tot the reception desk, rather a deck, the lobby was pretty vibrant, full of colors that keep you cheerful and the furniture looks comforting. They have a pool table on a side for having a nice game of pool and munching snacks from the snacks bar.
Right at the end of the lobby is the XYZ bar which is known to be the most happening place at Aloft across the globe. There is a great blend of live music and a huge array of cocktails to go with it. Couldn’t be a more perfect way to unwind after a tiring day at work. There is also a huge screen that showcases latest happenings in Aloft properties across the world and also live feed of tweets by its travelers.
As I checked into my room situated at 5th floor some chocolates welcomed me. My first impression of the room is that it is compact but great utilization of space. The work on utilization makes it feel big with a 9-foot high ceiling and urban chic design that infuses vibrancy. The bed with plush bedding was very inviting and comfortable. There was a plug-n-play docking stations which link tablets, laptops or music devices to the room’s 42” LCD TV and the best part is the hotel provides complimentary Wi-Fi which is a boon for a tech savvy travelers who are always on the move and use multiple gadgets.
I headed to the pool that is overlooking CISCO next door and the deep blue water looked inviting. Then i headed to the nook for a quick bite and thoroughly enjoyed the offerings there, a good blend of something for everyone.
This is one place you will not miss your home and a perfect place for next generation Traveler.
