Atlanta Abuzz About aloft

As if Atlanta did not have enough amazing hotels either open or in the works, aloft hotels, a vision of W Hotels has plans for 4 new properties in Atlanta in the next few years. Properties have been announced in Savannah, Alpharetta and two in Atlanta, one Buckhead the other near Hartsfield - Jackson. The concept behind the brand is a smaller "little sister" of the hip W Hotel brand. The Buckhead location is the most fascinating with the location listed on the aloft website as "Intersection of Peachtree Road and Piedmont Road" and a scheduled opening of June 1, 2010. As it stands now there is no open land at that intersection though there has been talk that within the next few years the Rooms to Go will close, possibly leaving an opening for aloft. The aloft hotel brand was born in 2005 with the first hotel having just opened this past year in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Repeat Atlanta!
