The second Aloft property in Puerto Rico and the first Marriott brand in Ponce opened on April 14.
Sporting a bold and savvy design, the Aloft Ponce on the south coast of Puerto Rico is centrally located near shopping and dining venues, Ponce's Art Museum, the Castillo Serrales Museum and Parque de Bombas, the historic former fire house and a landmark in the city.
Among its defining features is the largest Hard Rock Cafe in the Caribbean. And the WXYZ bar doubles as a live music venue for the brand's Live at Aloft Hotels entertainment program.
Other dining venues include its signature Nook restaurant and Orale Orale Mexican restaurant.
"The opening of the Aloft Ponce represents the resurgence of the Pearl of the South as a pillar in the tourist development of the region and the country," said Joel Rodriguez, developer and president of JRC Consolidated, the corporation that owns the property.
The 152 guestrooms feature a loft-like layout with platform beds and contemporary decor.
High-tech features include a mobile key for keyless room entry and tablets that enable guests to send messages to the concierge team.
Guests can take a dip in the infinity pool, stay in shape at the Re:charge fitness center, grab snacks in Re:fuel by Aloft and mingle in the Re:mix lounge.
There also is Camp Aloft for kids and ARF, the animals-are-fun pet program where kids get to pet animals like goats, dogs and pigs.
The hotel adheres to Marriott International's Commitment to Clean protocols.
Victor Vega, general manager, described the Aloft Ponce as "the ideal choice for travelers in search of a lifestyle hotel with bold design at an approachable price point."
The starting rate for a double room is $169 per night.
