ORLANDO, Fla. -
General Manager Craig Leicester said the building was completely renovated, but you will still find some original elements, like teak wood panels and terrazzo floors in the lobby. Marble near the elevators is also original.
The 110-thousand square foot building features 118 guest rooms, and sixty of those are suites.
The main draw in the lobby area is the ultra modern WXYZ lounge.
"I walk into it... I feel good. It's lively," Leicester said. "It makes people happy."
Leicester told Local 6 that out-of-town guests do make up a huge part of their business, especially among tech-savvy travelers.
The Aloft offers free, high-speed internet throughout the property, and even tables in the bar area are equipped with outlets and chargers.
"There are a lot of people shifting in their dynamic to live in a more urban environment," said Leicester. "We have a lot of young professionals who are looking for something new and exciting, and we want to be that."
Standard rooms range from about $159 to $200. For more information, click here.
