ALOFT KL Sentral Official Opening Event
An easy breezy adventure awaits you at the heart of Sentral district, considered Kuala Lumpur’s new Central Business District, with Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral’s lively loft-inspired style. Stroll out the door and be among major corporations and the city’s transport hub so you can zip around to all the buzzing city attractions. Nearby attractions include Little India, National Museum, Bird Park and Lake Gardens. The airtrain link to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is part of the Sentral complex where we are located, and a brand new, adjoining retail mall which provides lots of shopping choices.
See why everyone’s all abuzz about Aloft, and discover a whole new travel experience. Start your adventure in one of the 60 hotels in 10 countries, from Baltimore to Beijing to Bogota to Brussels – and everywhere in between.
Aloft has been shaking up the staid and traditional mid-market hotel sector and redefining the category by delivering urban-influenced, modern and vibrant design, and a social guest experience at an attractive price point. As such, the brand continues to make an impression on its guests, gaining market share and building traveler loyalty.
“Aloft’s international expansion so early in the brand’s life cycle is unprecedented. The Aloft debut in Kuala Lumpur underscores the strength of the Starwood network and the power of the Aloft brand,” said Brian McGuinness, Senior Vice President, Specialty Select Brands for Starwood. “Driving trends in music, design, and technology, Aloft is well positioned towards youthful, tech savvy, and connected travelers.”

Adjacent to Kuala Lumpur Sentral Station, the largest railway station in South East Asia, and a 28-minute train ride to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, the 482-room hotel is the largest Aloft property in the world. Dato’ Mohammed Azlan Hashim, Chairman of Aseana Properties Limited said, “We are delighted to be part of this milestone development of the first Aloft in Malaysia, especially as it is also the biggest Aloft hotel in the world to date. Travelers can now expect stylish design-led accommodations with accessible technology, comfort and convenience – all at a great value”.
