Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: HOT) and Atlantic Hotels Group and Civitas Capital Group said they have announced plans for a 224-room dual-branded Aloft and Element hotel development in the fast-growing Love Field district in Dallas, Texas.
Scheduled to open in December of 2016, Aloft Dallas Love Field and Element Dallas Love Field will anchor a new mixed-use development just one mile from Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL) and the Dallas Medical District.
Aloft and Element Dallas Love Field will be constructed within one multi-story building with a common entry, but separate ground-floor public areas and elevators. The hotel will have shared facilities, including 6,500 square feet of meeting space, an outdoor swimming pool and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
The building, which is expected to receive the US Green Building Council´s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, will be part of West Love, a 37-acre development that will also feature apartments and more than 24,000 square feet of retail space. Just one mile from baggage claim, the new hotels will offer proximity to downtown Dallas, the Dallas Medical District, the Design District, the shops and restaurants at Dallas Market Center and AT&T Stadium.
Aloft Dallas Love Field will provide leading-edge design, 133 loft-like rooms and accessible technologies. Amenities will include re:fuel, Aloft´s one-stop grab & go food and beverage area, and W XYZÂ® bar, which will feature local emerging music artists as well as some of the hottest bands as part of Aloft´s popular Live at Aloft Hotels programming.
Element Dallas Love Field will feature 91 light-filled studios with a fluid design of modular furniture, fully equipped kitchens, and spa-inspired bathrooms.
