Scotland’s first Aloft hotel opens its doors in Aberdeen

Scotland’s first Marriott branded Aloft hotel has officially opened its doors, situated right next door to the multi-million pound P&J Live on The Event Complex Aberdeen.

Operated by RBH, the 150-bedroom Aloft Aberdeen TECA is the first design of its kind in the city – and Scotland – and is aimed at the “next generation of travellers”. Its design features “open and vibrant” social spaces, including Aloft’s signature WXYZ bar, a gym and meeting and events spaces.

Each bedroom features Aloft’s plush signature platform beds, 49-inch LCD TVs with Chromecast, Bliss Spa toiletries and walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads.

To mark the opening, Aberdeen City Council co-leaders, councillors Jenny Laing and Douglas Lumsden, joined the hotel team to officially cut the ribbon on the landmark new venue. The ceremony took place on the same day as The Event Complex Aberdeen opening, which also saw the ribbon cut on the 15,000 capacity P&J Live venue.

Jane Bourque, hotel manager at Aloft Aberdeen TECA, said: “Today marks a major milestone for the entire team – we’re delighted to be opening the doors to Scotland’s very first Aloft hotel. And we are thrilled to welcome Councillors Jenny Laing and Douglas Lumsden to mark the occasion with us.

“The brand is well-known for its contemporary, quirky and boutique style which fits perfectly with our location – just a stone’s throw from P&J Live, which will see some of the world’s biggest acts perform live. Gig-goers will love the relaxed vibe, urban interiors and, of course, our selection of perfect pre-concert cocktails.”

She added: “While the hotel is ideal for those visiting P&J Live, we’re also perfectly placed for those visiting the city to take in the sights, as well as anyone travelling on business thanks to our handy location just minutes from the airport. We’ve already welcomed our first guests, and look forward to meeting those set to stay with us in future.”
