Aloft Hotel Delray Beach
A few weeks ago the Verano Events team visited the brand new Aloft Delray Beach hotel. We were able to get an inside look and a sneak peek of the brand-new property that wasn’t even open to the public yet when we went.
We got to see everything, from the great event spaces and wedding views to their modern guest rooms. The hotel is located in downtown Delray Beach for guest to enjoy the nightlife, dining, shopping and entertainment of the city. Aloft has features in their hotel such as a rooftop pool, bar and modern, luxury event spaces.
As soon as we walked into the lobby of Aloft hotel we felt at home. Ryan, the events director, welcomed us and gave us a tour around the hotel. The lobby was very spacious and fresh with beautiful lightning arrangements and furniture.
So many bright colors that made different areas pop in every corner. Big comfy couches and chairs were spread out all over the room. Also, some neon quotes and writing on the walls that would make for excellent pictures!
Next we got to see the event ballroom area. This area is great for any wedding reception, conference or meeting. The reception area is spacious and can hold up to 300 people or guests.
The glass like tables and chairs are so different than the standard round tables most venues offer. The lighting hanging from the ceiling is different and gave a sophisticated touch to the room.
The windows cause for the space to feel so welcoming and the dance floor is very spacious. There are a few different banquet rooms however, they can take down the inside walls that separate them in order to make a single room when a big event that requires quit a space is happening.
The event space is also very accessible to the elevator in case any guest needs to go back to their room.
We headed up the elevator to the rooftop pool and bar area. The pool water looked as clear as it can be with colorful side tables and lounge chairs surrounded about. They had beautiful plants sent up all over the rooftop to give it a garden feel.
This is also where couples can hold their wedding ceremony. The lounge chairs and tables can be moved to create a beautiful scene for any wedding ceremony.
The best part about having your wedding ceremony here for the lucky couple when you stay at this hotel, is some of their guest room suites have a door that leads right out into this area! No need for the bride or groom to walk through the hotel or go to any different place to get ready. They can do it from the comfort of their guest suite and then walk right into the ceremony without anyone seeing them or needing to leave! Talk about a modern arrangement.
Their guest room suites and regular guest rooms are designed with taste. Colorful chairs, rugs and artwork around the walls make the room feel very comforting and home like.
The open closet so you can hang your clothes and see it all, the big flat screen televisions where you can even connect to your own Netflix, and the Bluetooth speakers. What more can you ask for from a hotel?
Aloft hotel opens to the public soon. We can’t wait to have our own experience staying at this fun hotel! The weddings and events will be absolutely beautiful and amazing and can’t wait to see the wonderful impact they have on Delray Beach, Florida!
