COR Opens Syracuse Inner Harbor’s Aloft Hotel

By Staff


aloftSyracuse inner harbor developer COR Development Co. has opened the first hotel in the company’s $342 million redevelopment project.

According to Parent company Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc., the Aloft Hotel currently features 132 spacious, loft-like rooms, accessible technologies, and live music at the WXYZ Bar.

Starwood’s Element Syracuse Inner Harbor hotel is also slated to open in the spring of 2018.

“We are delighted to introduce our popular Aloft brand to Syracuse, as part of the city’s waterfront revitalization project,” Brian McGuinness, senior vice president, specialty select brands for Starwood, stated. “Boasting a portfolio of more than 100 hotels in dynamic destinations around the globe, Aloft resonates with today’s hyper-connected global traveler with its distinctive style, innovative programming, and buzzing social scene.”

The hotel also features SPG Keyless, a keyless entry system which enables guests to use their smartphone, or Apple watch, as a room key—and Wi-Fi throughout the property. In addition, Aloft offers 690 square feet of meeting space, a pool, fitness center, and a grab-and-go food and beverage area.

According to COR officials, the company also plans to build four additional apartment buildings on the property.

The company’s affiliates will own the hotels, which will be managed by Real Hospitality Group LLC.

COR moved forward with the project, following a lawsuit Mayor Stephanie Miner filed against it for seeking county tax breaks in 2015.

New York State Supreme Court Judge James Murphy dismissed the city’s lawsuit in February.
