Aloft Makes Debut in Dublin

Aloft Dublin City is opens in one of Dublin’s most historic and vibrant quarters

Aloft, a chic and contemporary brand within Marriott International is taking on Dublin as the first Aloft hotel to open in Ireland. The hotel is located in the Blackpitts area of Dublin’s Liberties, one of the capital’s most dynamic and design-driven quarters that is rich with heritage. It was formerly a trading site of textiles but, in its rejuvenated state, is a district thriving with media and tech hubs and stands as one of Dublin’s top visitor attractions.

“As a brand for music lovers and music makers, we are so excited to debut Aloft Hotels in Dublin, the city that shares our passion for live music. From the buskers on Grafton Street to shows in the National Concert Hall, the live music experience in Dublin is a special one and we can’t wait to add to the city’s buzzing night-time scene by inviting emerging artists to take the stage at our Live At Aloft series,” said John Licence, Vice President Premium and Select Brands, Europe at Marriott International.

Aloft’s “always-on” public spaces brings a new beat to the city and bold approach to the guest experience. The brand’s signature W XYZ bar anchors the social scene on the seventh floor with striking panoramic views of the city reaching from mountains to such famous hotspots as Guinness Storehouse and St Patrick’s Cathedral.

The bar brings acoustic performances and backstage moments with some of the hottest emerging Irish artists. For those looking to replenish or chill out, the Re:mix lounge boasts a loft-like vibe with flowing open areas and grab-and-go food options at Re:fuel by Aloft SM, the 24/7 pantry.

Each of the 202 guestrooms and suites have ultra plush beds, complete with headboards designed by local Dublin Artist. Find custom amenities by Bliss Spa; fast & free Wi-Fi; and 49-inch televisions linked to a Plug & Play connectivity panel.

Aloft Dublin City is also offering Mobile Key — an industry-first keyless entry system that enables guests to use their smartphone or Apple watch as a room key. Additional amenities include the Re:charge fitness center, and meeting facilities equipped with state-of-the-art A/V equipment and fast and free WiFi.
