Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 19 October 2009

Just eleven months after main construction began, the Aloft Hotel will next week welcome its first guest in support of the inaugural Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Formula One Grand Prix.

Hotel owner, Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) and operator, Starwood, have confirmed that they will assist the city during the UAEs most important ever sporting occasion, by welcoming guests to the hotel from Sunday October 25th, thus providing a valuable increase in the hotel capacity of Abu Dhabi.

Main construction began on the Aloft Hotel in November 2008. In the subsequent eleven months ADNEC, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, architects RMJM, main contractor Arabtec and all construction partners have worked diligently to develop one of Abu Dhabis largest hotels, in terms of capacity.

The Aloft Hotel, which is connected to the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, is 20 minutes from downtown Abu Dhabi and 15 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport.

It will serve the ADNEC visitors and exhibitors but is also anticipated to become a regular destination for young affluent residents of Abu Dhabi searching for new and stylish outlets.
