Aloft Aberdeen TECA is set to take the spotlight at state-of-the-art Event Complex
Aberdeen, Scotland – October, 2019: Aloft Hotels, Marriott International’s innovation incubator for today’s savvy global traveler, brings a new beat to Scotland this month with the opening of its first property in the country: Aloft Aberdeen TECA. Located in The Event Complex Aberdeen (TECA), which will open its doors this summer, Aloft Aberdeen TECA is right in the heart of the city’s burgeoning international music scene.
Known as the ‘Granite City’ – but home to much more than hard rock – Aberdeen’s buzzing music and live entertainment scene is the ideal setting for Scotland’s first Aloft Hotel. The city comes alive with must-see shows from emerging artists and international music icons alike, and the new, state-of-the art complex – P&J Live – will play host to Scottish singer, Lewis Capaldi, and the legendary Liam Gallagher amongst others.
Cobblestone streets, iconic ‘silver’ buildings and churches converted into live music venues give the city its original character and magnetic charm. Designed to stay in tune with this vibrant destination, Aloft Aberdeen TECA uses concrete, warmed woods and aged blackened steel for an authentic industrial loft feel. The hotel’s WXYZ® bar will welcome guests and locals to mix and mingle whilst enjoying live performances from up-and-coming musicians at regular Live At Aloft Hotels events.
John Licence, Vice President Premium and Select Brands, Europe at Marriott International says: “Aberdeen is a city for urban travellers who are at the forefront of the cultural scene, just like Aloft guests, and we look forward to opening our doors to them. The city’s social hub is growing with the opening of the new P&J Live, and the Aloft Aberdeen TECA is uniquely placed to be right in the mix with live music programming, the hottest emerging artists and signature cocktails.”
True to the brand’s dedication to innovation, the hotel incorporates state-of-the-art technology to benefit from TECA’s onsite energy centre, which uses food and garden waste from around Aberdeen to supply heating, cooling and power. The energy centre is based on a modular solution, meaning it can even address seasonal variations in demand for energy and provide flexibility for future expansion
Each of the hotel’s 150 spacious guestrooms feature Aloft’s ultra-comfortable beds in the brand’s signature artful, clutter-free and innovative loft layout, 49-inch televisions with Plug & Play connectivity, and fast and free Wi-Fi. Additional amenities include the Re:chargeSM fitness centre and Re:fuelSM by Aloft, a convenient 24-hour cafe for a quick bite on the go.
There are currently 161 Aloft Hotels in more than 20 countries and territories around the world. In Europe specifically, Aloft Hotels is present in key city-break destinations such as Dublin, London, Liverpool, and Madrid with expected openings in The Hague, Munich and more.
