Two Aloft hotels have been ranked among the Top 10 Trendiest Hotels in the United States by TripAdvisor® in its 2011 Travelers’ Choice® awards, making Aloft the only hotel brand to have not one, but two properties on the coveted list, and one of few select-service hotels to top the list.

According to the travel site, the “hip and friendly” Aloft Portland Airport at Cascade Station (No. 5) and “modern and convenient” Aloft Nashville-Cool Springs (No. 9) now belong in the rarefied company of buzz-worthy hotels like Philadelphia’s Hotel Palomar (No. 2), New York’s Crosby Street Hotel (No. 4), and The Maxwell (No. 10) in Seattle. Aloft Portland Airport’s trendiness even resonated across the globe; the hotel was ranked No. 9 among TripAdvisor’s Top 10 Trendiest Hotels in the World.

Now in its ninth year, the annual TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards honors the world’s best hotels, earning their distinction from those who know them best – real travelers. Unlike any other hotel awards programs in the world, TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice winners are based on the millions of real and unbiased reviews and opinions about hotels on™ and content from across the Web.

“It’s extremely rewarding to have two of our properties recognized in TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice Awards and it’s a particularly gratifying vote of confidence because it reflects the voice of our guests,” said Brian McGuinness, senior vice president of specialty select brands for Starwood. “We set out to bring style and design at an affordable price and, as a new hotel brand, we are thrilled to be in such great company and to see Aloft becoming a true game-changer in the industry.”

Aloft is the brand from Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: HOT) that has been shaking up the hospitality industry since its 2008 launch. With more than 50 properties now open worldwide, the brand has enjoyed the fastest ramp-up in hospitality industry history.
A sister Starwood property, the W Fort Lauderdale, was named the No. 1 trendiest hotel in the United States by TripAdvisor.
