Starwood’s Aloft brand has officially opened in Cancún.

The Aloft Cancun hotel, located in Cancún Hotel Zone, has 177 loft-style rooms with nine-foot ceilings and oversized windows.

The hotel’s opening represents Starwood’s 25th hotel in Mexico and its eighth separate brand in the country.

“Since its launch, Aloft has emerged as a popular choice among savvy business travelers,” said Osvaldo Librizzi, Co-President for the Americas at Starwood Hotels and Resorts. “We are thrilled to launch the Aloft brand in Cancún, a renowned tourist destination as well as a prime business travel destination that is seeing increased demand in the meetings and conventions segment.”

The region’s first Aloft hotel came in Bogota in 2011, followed by the Aloft San Jose in Costa Rica later that year.

“We’re delighted that Cancún will be the launching platform for the Aloft brand in Mexico, and we are excited to partner with Starwood in this project,” said Mauricio Hamui Hilwani, owner and Director of Promotora TIIM.
