The 136-room hotel will be located at 302 Pitt Street in the iconic Druid House building. It will be in the heart of the ‘Koreatown’ district, close to the city’s business centre, shopping district and a number of transport links.

The hotel will feature spacious ‘loft-like’ bedrooms with the ability to connect electronic devices to their flat-screen TVs so the rooms can function as ‘high-tech offices’. There will also be free wi-fi throughout the hotel.

Hotel amenities will include a ‘grab & go’ food and beverage area and Aloft’s signature w xyzSM cocktail bar which will play host to a series of musicians.
