Starwood’s Aloft hotels has launched a new interactive Web site where you can virtually explore what Aloft has to offer. You can wander around an online Aloft hotel and visit all areas of the property, including the fitness center, hotel bar, guest rooms and lobby. Interactive icons can be found on each page and you can move your mouse over the pink boxes to discover more detailed information about each area of the hotel, such as the elevators have cushy padded walls and liquid gel tiles and guest rooms come with free WiFi and 42-inch flat screen TVs.
To celebrate the launch of the Web site, Starwood is giving away prizes and from now through July 8, 2009 visitors to the site can enter for a chance to win a grand prize of one million Starpoints and daily click-to-win prizes. Visitors can return to the site each day for a chance to win prizes such as a MacBook, iPod nano, iTunes gift card or Aloft Hotels getaway. The contest is only open to residents of the U.S. or Canada who are at least 18 years old. You can also play an online game and take a simulated road trip across the country and answer trivia questions at over 140 points of interest. You won’t win any prizes for playing the cross-country game, but you can test your travel trivia knowledge and compare your results with other players through a leader board.
