The dual-branded Aloft and Element Hotel Development in Redmond, Wash., was declared open by Minneapolis-based CSM Corporation. The two hotels are located near the Microsoft Corporation's world headquarters as well as Google, Nintendo, Boeing and Expedia. The hotels share one building and multiple amenities.

The building that the two brands share offers 7,600 square feet of event space and seven meeting rooms. There is a saline pool and a large fitness center. The Aloft Seattle Redmond offers 150 guest rooms, while the Element Seattle Redmond has 131 guest rooms. The spaces were designed to be comfortable, stylish, sustainable and tech-forward.

Element Hotels are designed for travelers passionate about the planet and well-being. The Element brand is stylish and sustainable, focusing on natural light in their 18 worldwide locations. Aloft Hotels offers a tech-forward and vibrant experience that offers something fresh compared to the traditional hotel experience.

“CSM Corporation is proud to deliver hotels that are equally stylish and technically advanced for a tech-forward community like Redmond,” says Steve Schlundt, CSM’s president of lodging and residential. “Guests from around the world will enjoy all the space and amenities that will allow them to be comfortable and in control whether they’re working or relaxing."

This September, Los Angeles Airport Marriott is beginning the final stage of their $50-million renovations.  

The redesign includes more than 50,000 square feet of meeting space alongside a maximum capacity of 2,500 people. The hotel will be set to host parties of any nature, including Corporate events, conventions, company retreats, holiday parties, banquets, exhibitions, workshops, and everything in between.
