Aloft Hotels, Marriott International’s hotel brand for music enthusiasts and tech-savvy travellers debuts in Birmingham with the opening of Aloft Birmingham Eastside. Situated in Birmingham’s up-and-coming Eastside district, a new regenerated hub for the city which is home to businesses, retail, and leisure facilities, all just a short walk away from the city centre.
Guests visiting Aloft Birmingham Eastside will enjoy having legendary music venues on their doorstep including The Hippodrome and the Utilita Arena Birmingham. The UK’s largest city-centre shopping centre, The Bullring offers incredible retail experiences and foodies will enjoy dining in the city which boasts the most Michelin Star restaurants in the UK, outside of London. The hotel’s proximity to three main rail hubs and a fast connection to Birmingham International Airport makes it an ideal option for both business and leisure travellers.
The urban-inspired property nods to Birmingham’s industrial heritage while combining the brand’s philosophy to create bold, open and energetic environments. Guests can enjoy craft cocktails in the stylish W XYZ® bar, grab-and-go gourmet snacks 24 hours a day from Re:fuel by Aloft℠ or casual dinners at the vibrant Tempo! Restaurant, which will have a grill offering.
All 195 modern bedrooms feature Aloft’s signature ultra-comfortable platform beds, en-suite bathrooms with powerful rainfall showers and fast, free Wi-Fi. Guestroom categories include executive rooms and suites.
The hotel is conveniently connected to a brand-new, state-of-the-art conference and events venue, The Eastside Rooms, set to open in April. The venue will be home to 23 superpowered event and meeting spaces, including the largest pillar-free ballroom in Birmingham city centre.
The development forms part of Birmingham’s Big City Plan – a 20-year, major city centre regeneration project which aims to transform the Eastside area into a thriving leisure and business district.
