Starwood to Open Aloft San Francisco Airport in 2012

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 15 September 2011

Starwood is turning to conversions to meet demand for its Aloft brand from partners, developers and consumers.

The first conversion from an existing hotel is a former Clarion property which will undergo a  significant renovation before opening as the Aloft San Francisco Airport, in the summer of 2012.

The 253-room hotel is owned by Starwood Hotels & Resorts and this significant investment demonstrates Starwood's strong commitment to the three-year-old Aloft brand.

Aloft San Francisco Airport occupies a prime location adjacent to San Francisco International Airport (SFO), one of the world's busiest travel hubs.

"We see two types of opportunities as ideal candidates for an Aloft conversion: older hotels in need of a major renovation, and unique independent boutique hotels seeking a stronger brand point of view and the ability to utilize Starwood systems," said Simon Turner, President of Global Development for Starwood.

The Aloft hotel will become the third Starwood property adjacent to San Francisco International Airport, joining The Westin San Francisco Airport and Four Points by Sheraton Hotel & Suites San Francisco Airport.
