    Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has signed an agreement with BCD to open the Aloft Erbil hotel in Iraq by 2015.

    The signing for the mid-market Aloft Erbil is Starwood’s third hotel deal in Iraq this year.
    Earlier this year, Starwood announced its return to the Iraqi hospitality market after 20 years with the signing of the Sheraton Erbil and the Four Points by Sheraton. All three hotels are scheduled to open in Erbil in 2015.

    “We see great opportunities to grow our Aloft portfolio in emerging markets across the Middle East, such as Iraq, where there is a strong demand for affordable yet stylish and cutting-edge hotel brands,” said Bart Carnahan, senior vice president, acquisitions & development, Europe, Africa and Middle East division, Starwood Hotels & Resorts.
