Sholinganallur Travel Guide
Some of us here at HotelChatter aren't the biggest fans of Starwood's budget aloft Hotels experience, but then some of us are. Regardless of preference, we can say that it's pretty cool to see the modern, affordable chain take off and expand around the world with its free WiFi and excellent lobbies.
We've already told you about plans for London's first aloft, called the "aloft ExCeL" (so annoying), coming in 2012, but meanwhile, the first aloft Hotel in India just opened in Chennai, in a very busy and "under-hoteled" I.T. sector.
