The 202-room Aloft Dublin City -- the first Aloft-branded property to open in Ireland -- will debut in spring 2018. The eight-story property will feature the brand's signature WXYZ bar; a Re:mix lounge; a Re:charge fitness center; and Re:fuel by Aloft, a 24-hour deli. For meetings and events, the hotel will have two spaces. Two independently operated retail outlets will be located on the ground level, with direct access from the street. 

"This market debut underscores our strategic commitment to accelerate the Aloft Hotels brand in key destinations such as Dublin," said Carlton Ervin, Marriott International's chief development officer, Europe. "The continued draw of Aloft's stylish, yet keenly priced accommodation, together with its suitability and adaptability for multiple locations, means we are seeing an ever-increasing demand among our partners for its distinctive offer."

Currently there are six Aloft properties in Europe: one in Belgium, two in Germany, one in Turkey and two in the United Kingdom; five more will open in the next two years.
