Two new BRP designed hotels opened their doors to guests this summer. On July 24th the Aloft Glendale at Westgate and on August 6th the Cambria Bettendorf in Iowa had their grand openings.
Aloft Glendale opening
The Aloft Glendale is a four-story 100-room hotel on a 2.4-acre property located adjacent to the Westgate Entertainment District. This district is one of the premier entertainment destinations in the region.
Some highlights of the hotel are its modern loft-style rooms that feature 9-foot ceilings, plush platform beds, 42” LCD TVs, and walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads. Other highlights are the W XYZ bar, live local music, vibrant use of color, and the fact the hotel is pet friendly. The employees even set out water and food bowls at the entrance for pets checking in.
Here’s a video from the grand opening to get a better look of the hotel:
