“The new Aloft and Element represent exciting new additions to the Dallas Love Field hospitality market and give travelers a compelling choice of two high-caliber global brands near to the airport, the central business district and top area attractions,” said Toni Stoeckl, Global Brand Leader and Vice President of Aloft and Element Hotels. “An industry leader in the eco-space, Element promotes a life in balance with its emphasis on smart, sustainable living, while Aloft caters to today’s hyper-connected global traveler with its tech-forward mindset and live music scene at the W XYZ® Bar.”

Aloft and Element Dallas Love Field occupy one multi-story building with a common entry and separate ground-floor public areas and elevators. Shared facilities include 6,500 square feet of meeting space, an outdoor swimming pool and a state-of-the-art fitness center. The building is part of West Love, a 37-acre mixed-use development that also includes apartments and more than 24,000 square feet of retail space. Just one mile from baggage claim, the new hotels are convenient to downtown Dallas, the Dallas Medical District, the Design District, the shops and restaurants at Dallas Market Center and AT&T Stadium.

Aloft Dallas Love Field offers 133 loft-like rooms and amenities including a 24-hour Re:chargeSM fitness center and Re:fuelSM by Aloft – a one-stop gourmet grab & go food and beverage area, plus live, local music at the brand's signature W XYZ® bar as part of the signature Live At Aloft Hotels music series. The hotel also features SPG Keyless—the industry-first keyless entry system that enables guests to use their smartphone or Apple watch as a room key—and fast and free Wi-Fi throughout the property.

Element Dallas Love Field features 91 light-filled studios with a fluid design of modular furniture, fully equipped kitchens, and spa-inspired bathrooms.
