Looking for a little escape on your next business trip to Taipei? There's plenty of good things to be said for Beitou, the mountainous northern district known for its expansive green spaces and hot mineral springs.
From January 2017 Beitou will have another drawcard: an Aloft hotel from the Starwood group. It's the second of Starwood's sharply stylish boutique hotels to pop up in Taiwan, with 292 loft-inspired rooms and suites.
The Aloft Taipei Beitou blends the Aloft brand’s two core DNA strands – music and technology – and is close to the region's hot springs, but also a short stroll to two MRT stations so you can head back to downtown Taipei in just over 20 minutes.
Otherwise, stay local and meet your guests at the hotel's 'W XYZSM' bar to enjoy signature cocktails and live acoustic performances or dine at the Nook restaurant.
