The hotel is located next to the bustling Fulton Mall, and minutes from the world renowned Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, newly opened Brooklyn Bridge Park, happening nightlife, restaurants and hip boutiques.

The Aloft New York Brooklyn features a two-story lobby atrium with its signature w xyz bar and an expansive roof terrace bar with panoramic views of the Manhattan and Brooklyn skylines where guests can mix and mingle and listen to the hotel's dynamic line up of live performances and dj sets.

"With its creative style and energetic vibe, Brooklyn will make a perfect home for Aloft, and we're excited to expand our New York footprint with our debut property in the borough," said Brian McGuinness, Senior Vice President of Specialty Select Brands for Starwood. "For the Gen Y-minded Aloft guest, who brings a real appreciation of what's next in design and tech, a Brooklyn location makes an ideal home base for exploring New York, and we're eager to share it with them."
